I have these wart/rash things on my wrist go down, they are in a line & I've been using creams & they aren't working well enough. Any suggestions?
Do they itch?: What you describe sounds suspiciously like scabies, from the sketchy information provided. If the lesions itch (especially at night) and are spreading, it's likely scabies and you will need to apply a Scabicide. If they don't itch, please provide more information or a picture, and I'll try again. ...Read more

Are genital warts and HPV the same thing? If I have some small bumps around my genitals, does that mean I have hpv? How can I tell if it's genital warts or just a rash? .
I have perinium itching and small smooth rash. Dr. said it didn't look like warts. It's lasted a few weeks. It's not herpes.
Genital skin rash: There are many causes of genital area rash. Most are not STDs. Some are problems that occur primarily in the genital area, and others can occur anywhere and happen to involve the genital area. Since your doctor apparently doesn't know, see a dermatologist. You can also google "genital skin rash images" for photos to compare with your rash. A "smooth" patch might be lichen planus. ...Read more

I have genitals warts which im treating with aldara (imiquimod) cream also I have a red puffy rash on my scrotum that looks like a rooster neck how do I treatthis?
Two things...: Two things come to mind to me when I read your description of your symptoms. 1) a (typical) reaction to the Aldara (imiquimod) cream, if it is getting on surrounding skin. 2) a coincidental fungal injection (aka "jock itch"). Wouldn't hurt to try an otc antifungal cream. But you might need to see your doctor to get this clarified for sure. ...Read more
