No stds, possible hpv warts/skintags inner thigh. Got handjob from masseuse, not sure if she had blood/semen on hands. Any risk of hiv or other std's?

No STD or HIV risk: The inner thigh is an unlikely site of genital warts, so skin tags seem more likely. In any case, warts take at least 2 months and often up to 9-12 months to show up after acquring HPV, so nothing to do with more recent sexual exposures. STDs are rarely if ever transmitted by hand-genital contact, even when genital fluids are used as lubricant -- and for sure zero risk for HIV. ...Read more

Warts are tricky: Often patients need multiple treatments to get rid of warts completely. They are 'known' for hiding out in the skin layers (away from the destructive power of the immune system) and therefore can pop-up at will if you don't stay on top of it. There are creams (aldara) in addition to ablative therapies (cryo) that can help. See a dermatologist for the best effects. ...Read more

Molluscum contagiosu: Molluscum contagiosum are warty, pimply spots which heal after you needle or squeeze them. Often they are quite numerous. They heal without scars. Spontaneous clearing usually occurs after a few weeks or months. They are caused by a pox virus and are transmitted sexually. There is a related virus, transmitted without sex, common to small children. A dermatologist can help clear them faster. ...Read more

I put a band aid on my inner thigh for 4 warts. Some of them have turned black. Does that mean they're dead? Also, others have reduced in size.

I have a tiny soft skin "growth" on my labia majora close to the fold that connects to my inner thigh, the bump has a pubic hair growing through it (not exactly the center) can it be a genital wart?

More than likely not: The hair is probably ingrown. A wart would be more fleshy and would get bigger over time. You can always have it looked at. I would be more concerned if it increased in size. ...Read more

Here are some. ..: Thigh is not a common site for wart. How was you diagnosed to have HPV - by microscopic tissue exam or by blood test or just by its appearance? Accumulated experience has told us that some 50% of treated patients expect wart recurrence in follow-up regardless of the methods of Rx. Besides, some patients have no visible HPV lesion, but just harboring its virus as carriers. More? Ask Doc timely. ...Read more
