Hi! My friend has developed some small things on his head (skull) they look like dry warts. What is the cause n how can it be treated.
See a physician: Warts are caused by the HPV virus. There are many medications and alternative treatments that work. They also can be removed by a Dermatologist if needed. But before you consider self treatment be sure to have the involved area examined by a physician to be sure you are not dealing with a precancerous actinic keratosis or squamous cell cancer. ...Read more

Does oral hpv that causes warts go away on its own? Are oral warts even common? I'm 21 and I have head to my Bf. Scared he may not be clean.
HPV: Don't worry, you will be fine. You are describing the human condition. We are exposed to pathogens on a daily basis, including during sexual activity. HPV is the most commonly spread STD in the US but only certain strains cause cancer and our immune system can handle many of them. Get screened by your dentist/MD and get your PAP by your OB/GYN, your age indicates its time. Stay calm. ...Read more
No.: Penile "warts" are not normal and may be a sign of hpv infection. The human papillomavirus is a common genital condition (in both men and women). Hpv is infectious, and if you have it, you may transmit it to sexual partners. It would be good to visit with a clinic / healthcare provider to have an examination and see if an appropriate treatment could be pursued. Hope that this helps. ...Read more

Blocked gland?: A sebaceous cyst is a collection of oily fluid that occurs when an oil gland is blocked. Some folks are more prone to them than other and they often appear on the neck, shoulders, and back. Try to avoid skin products that are oily. I would also stay away from transfats and bad oils, which is good for overall health. See doctor for diagnosis. It may be something else. Peace and good health. ...Read more
Lots of ways: You can use the liquid nitrogen, liquid nitrous oxide (this is what I like to use), topical acids, dermal scraping. You can also try oral cimetadine (400 mg three times a day for 12-16 weeks). This is very safe and had the side effect of getting rid of warts for many people of adult size and weight (japma november 1, 1995, vol. 85 no. 11 717-718). For excisions, I use radiowave surgery. ...Read more

Not necessarily: The black spots are blood capillaries in the wart. The wart could be alive still. You may need more aggressive treatment but also warts will disappear on their own as your immune system eventually kills them. If you want rid of it now then see your doctor and maybe he/she will use liquid nitrogen to freeze it. ...Read more

If I give a guy who has HPV with no present warts oral sex (head) for example will i be at risk for catching something in my mouth?
Fairly low risk: Even without visible warts, there is still probably some viral shedding. So, technically, there is some risk. But, getting hpv in the mouth is uncommon and is lower risk than getting it in the cervical area. Throat cancer can result from oral hpv, and this risk is greatly increased by smoking. Ideally, no smoking and use a barrier for oral sex, but the risk is still fairly low. ...Read more

Get with your physician to review some basics about your body, now that you're a grown man. Best wishes. ...Read more
