Herpes vs. HPV: Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) and Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) are viral infections that cause skin lesions. Herpes can appear on the mouth as cold sores (HSV1) or around genitals (HSV2). HPV can occur anywhere on the body. Herpes can cause ulcerated, black-ish lesions while HPV causes smooth round warts (see images). HPV does have a vaccine that (Gardasil) protects against some (not all) HPV strains. ...Read more

The : The description you give is not consistent with herpes, but it is still possible. Visit your doctor for an examination. If the area in question has resolved, you can request a herpes blood test that checks for antibodies for herpes type 1 & 2. If you are positive for type 2 then you have been exposed to genital herpes at some point. If the rash is still present then your doctor may be able to tell you if it is herpes or not by his/her clinical exam. Good luck. ...Read more

Hi i'm 24 white and have noticed some bumps on my penis. Flesh colour like above the 4 skin . What is the best way i can tell if it HPV or warts ?

No,...: Are they new and increasing in size and number? If so, it is most likely warts. Note: the hpv-exposed men wouldn't always develop warts; if developed, it is usually in 2-3 months after exposure to hpv, almost always sex-related although very rare autoinnoculation from non-genital sites does exist. So, see doc timely. ...Read more

See Your Doctor: There are several dermatological conditions that can cause this, first, you must make sure you don't have Condyloma, a type of wart caused by HPV. Second, Molluscum Contagiosum may also cause flesh like lesions in that region. Both are sexually transmitted diseases. Other causes exist also. It is important to have a complete vaginal and anal/rectal exam with an anoscopy. See your Proctologist ...Read more

Many possibilities: There are all sorts of bumps and irregularities of the labia minor, vaginal lining, etc. It could still be a genital warts despite your negative HPV test. But probably not; genital warts rarely occur as single bumps, usually several. Various cysts, skin tags, etc are very common as well. You'll need to be examined in person, preferably by the doctor or clinic where your pap and HPV test were done. ...Read more
