Also, what are the necessary steps to find out whether I have been exposed?

I have HIV and HPV. I have skin-colored bumps on my anal area and red bumps on my buttocks. They have been itching and burning for the last 10 weeks. It can be pretty intense. Sometimes they bleed. My dermatologist says the bumps are due to HPV, so I’m starting a treatment with Aldara. She said it was safe to use it perianally and intra-anally...but the manufacturer says to only use it externally. Which one is true? Also, do genital warts usually have these symptoms?
