User :   Im pretty sure i had some kind of gential warts around my vagina a couple years ago and they went right away after like a week, so i never got tested. Now the Boyfriend i have had for a year in a half has had something on his penis for 6 months now which im assuming it might be genital warts? Im thinking it could be from me, but on the other hand me and him didnt get together til 2 or 3 years after that incident. Also, my ex boyfriend before him has nothing on his penis and i have not slept with anyone else. Sometimes during sex as well when he cums in me it burns in my vagina, but not all the time. please help.
Doctor :   Hi Dr
Doctor :   let me read your query
User :   ok
Doctor :   this does not seem to be due to you
User :   OK but if he does have something i would of already gotten it right? If he has something on him then i should too?
Doctor :   usually if it has not occured to your prior partner, the chance that this occured to your current partner through you is less possible
Doctor :   yeah that is possible
Doctor :   but it depends on whether he is infective or not, and the lesion in question is a wart in fact or not
User :   yeah i could not tell or neither could he. if its not what else would it be
User :   there is deff something there
Doctor :   sometimes skin lesions like sebaceous glands can present as similar lesions
User :   what causes that?
Doctor :   sebaceous glands are usually present within the skin, and secrete lubricants for the skin
Doctor :   any over proliferation of cells , int the gland tissue can cause such lesions
User :   so they can just pop up any time? nothing causes it?
Doctor :   yes ,
Doctor :   they need not have to get infected to appear
Doctor :   this is usually a skin anomaly, that can occur without any cause
User :   well thats weird how he got them maybe 3 or 4 months after we started dating but hasnt had it before?
Doctor :   have you got a pap smear before ?
User :   yes. its been a little over a year
Doctor :   was it normal at that time ?
User :   yes
Doctor :   in that case, there is nothing to be worried about
Doctor :   you can do a test to know what exactly the lesions are
User :   i was going to get tested but i dont have health insurance and really needed to know what was going on
Doctor :   daub a small amount of acetic acid (vinegar) on the suspected area.
Doctor :   If there are any warts in the area they will turn white, thereby revealing themselves
User :   and if they arent they wont do anything?
Doctor :   yes that is right
User :   could it be another std other then warts? what else causes things on your penis
Doctor :   syphilis, EBV, molluscum contagiosum , herpes are some viruses that cause warts
Doctor :   but the warts differ in appearance
User :   how come i dont have anything?
Doctor :   since you dont have them, probably they might not be warts at all
User :   and what does the burning mean?
Doctor :   burning in the vagina, could be due to abrasions in the vaginal mucosa, that occurs during intercourse
User :   yes i heard about that too
Doctor :   these are like minor cuts
Doctor :   use of proper lubrication will help
User :   yes sometimes the lube does the same thing though
User :   i think it is cuts
Doctor :   I hope i have answered your questions
User :   one more.
Doctor :   Is there anything else i can help you with
Doctor :   sure
User :   so could it be if he has something i may never get it at this point then?
Doctor :   it could be , definitely
Doctor :   it is better he get himself checked out
Doctor :   so that the cause can be known
User :   will they say its the lesions if he gets std checked
Doctor :   yes
User :   ok, thankyou so much
Doctor :   you are most welcome
Doctor :   thanks for consulting me here
