Expert Q & A Answers About genital warts

There’s a skin-colored bump on the lip of my vagina...what is it?

I found a bump on the inside of my vagina on the smaller lips (labia minora). It’s the same color as everything else and it isn’t elevated. However, when I touch it, it feels like a bump. I’m not sexually active, so I know it’s not an STD. What is it?

We’ve been having sex for over a year, but now I’ve noticed some red and itchy bumps...do I have an STD?

I’ve been having sex with my wife for the last year without any problems. But last week, I found something that looks like a pimple on my penis. It’s red and itchy. It went away after a few days, but after we had sex tonight, I found two more bumps on the other side of my penis. Do I have an STD?

I’ve noticed some spots on my penis when it’s erect...do I have HPV?

I have a lot of visible spots on my penis that I can only see when I have an erection. I’ve also just noticed some largish brown blotches in my genital area. One is on my penis and there are a few others beside my penis on my legs. I’m usually healthy, but now I’m worried. Do I have HPV? 

I have a couple bumps on my penis, but they don’t look like pictures I’ve seen of genital warts. What else could they be?

About a month ago, I noticed a tiny bump on the head of my penis. A week ago, another tiny bump appeared beside the first one. I've seen pictures of genital warts, but my bumps look nothing like the pictures I’ve seen. Do I have an STD? I’m concerned. 

I was diagnosed and treated for genital warts, but they came back. What should I do?

About a year and a half ago I noticed something on my penis. I thought nothing of it and it went away by itself. About 18 months later, something appeared again so I went to the sexual health clinic, where they diagnosed several flat warts. I was given ointment to treat the warts and that seemed to help. But then a flat wart came back ⎼ much bigger, 0.5 cm diameter ⎼ and another has become a raised wart, about 0.3 cm diameter. I treated them again with the ointment and they seemed to be going way again...but almost overnight, they have come back. T he raised wart raised and the flat wart is looking pink and healthy. Can you help? Is there another ointment I can get? I do not want to go to the sexual health clinic again if possible.
