How to treat small genital warts next to opening of urethra and head of penis. They are very very small. Any home remidies?

See your physician.: There are many ways to deal with the bother caused by genital warts. However, if the warts are close to the opening of the urethra (or urethral meatus) i would be very careful to seek remedies only under the direct supervision of a doctor. Any damage or scarring of the meatus could lead to permanent narrowing of the opening and urinary difficulty. ...Read more

I have something that looks like a wart on the foreskin of my penis. But when I stretch my skin it disappears. Is it genital warts?

6-8 of the hair follicles on the base of my penis in the pubic hair region have raised a bit and turned darkish-gray or black? Genital warts?

Possible cysts: Hard to say without more history and seeing photos of these lesions, but they could be due to clogged hair follicles - black color could be due to oxidation or old blood. I cannot rule out possibility that these are genital warts or something else. Go see your clinician asap for an exam, tests if needed, and appropriate management. Take Care. ...Read more

Could my boyfriend have genital warts my boyfriend has had these bumps on his penis and testicals for almost a year

Could my boyfriend have genital warts my boyfriend has had these bumps on his penis and testicals for almost a year

"Bumps" : "bumps" on the penis and scrotum could be several things including warts, benign sebaceous glands, molluscum contagiosum, pearly penile papules, and other possibilities. Very difficult to answer without a picture, unfortunately. Sebaceous glands on the penis and scrotum are typically small, yellowish bumps that are fairly uniform in size and shape and often you will see a small hair coming out of the bumps. Warts, on the other hand, are typically more verrucous and flesh or slightly darker colored and are more clustered or sporadic in that region. I would recommend that you have him evaluated so that both of you know for sure what he has. I hope that helps a little. ...Read more

Have genital warts on my penis,when i go to the toilet and touch my genital wart then touched my anus hole that lead to genital wart at my anus area?

Genital warts: Genital warts are most commonly HPV and beyond being unattractive they can lead to cancer especially with your sexual partner. The serious consequences of this condition and capacity to be spread to others means you need to get this treated. It is unlikely your warts will spread from your penis to your anus by touching but could from anal sex. Treatment is easy but requires a physician. ...Read more

I have HPV and i found genital warts on my penis and I am taking therapy, after marriage my wife will absolutely get it?

Assume she will: But what's the real concern? Almost everyone has met at least one or two strains of HPV. If she complies with proper health care protocols, it's essentially no danger to life, and if she also develops warts (which is unlikely), they can be treated. Now, how about using barrier protection until you're married, so you won't pick up more HPV strains and the other nasty stuff you've gotten? Cheers. ...Read more

HIV: This is not how HIV disease is transmitted. You must have intimate contact, either sexually (and this can include vaginal, anal and oral sex), or by blood or tissue transfer. Being tested for HIV is an excellent idea for anybody who has ever had unprotected sex and you might want to do this. Better safe than sorry. ...Read more

How do I remove dark scars on penis do to burning off warts. Had genital warts years ago, burned them off myself.How do I get rid of dark scars(please)!

Burn : Burn scars usually last a lifetime. The good news is that they lighten over time. There is a cream called Mederma that you can buy over the counter that may help lighten the scar. Read the instructions prior to buying to make sure this gel can be used on the genitals. Lastly please do not perform any more home medical procedures on yourself, this can be dangerous, and leave long lasting scars. There are other treatments for genital warts that would have resulted in no scars.
Good luck. ...Read more

I have what looks like a wart on my penis. Can I have genital warts if I've not had sex before or any sexual encounter ?

I have what looks like a wart on my penis. Can I have genital warts if I've not had sex before or any sexual encounter ?

Unlikely: If you have not had vaginal, anal or oral sex, you are unlikely to have warts on your penis. It is not feasible to say what the lesion may be without examining you.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Can get genital warts from rubbing penis through vaginal lips? I didn't have intercourse.

HPV: Absolutely. This virus is easily transmissible by any direct skin to skin or skin to mucous membrane contact. But if you are having unprotected sex (and this is a form of that, one need not have penetration), that is not the only std you have to worry about. Hiv and syphilis and other serious pathogens can be transmitted in this manner. Be careful. It is dangerous out there. Get yourself tested. ...Read more
