But i feel that area still a lil itchy plus my scrotum and bottom anal area. What should i do next??? thx
Doctor :  
let me read through.
Doctor :  
When did she apply those?
User :   she removed them 1 week ago... i was using the after cream till today
User :   they seem gone but my gf is very upset, although she dsnt present any synthom at all
Doctor :  
Is the itching increasing since then or has it reduced?
User :   is the same. Its still slightly ... but i didnt feel itchy like 3 weeks ago
Doctor :  
Ok.
Doctor :  
i shall help you in this.
Doctor :  
may i know your age and location?
User :   it started with something that looked like a mole almost a year ago.... now in the last 4 months like 3 or 4 more appeared all in the top part...then i got nervous and got her to remove them
User :   im almost 38 from Queens NY US
Doctor :  
Ok.
Doctor :  
The symptoms you have are probably result of the creams and acid that you used.
User :   the itchin? i think i had itching a lil before too.
Doctor :   Is it?
Doctor :  
OK.
User :   very lite, but i can feel it. But i feel itchy going from mi scrotum towards the anal area, which i didt apply cream not even close
Doctor :   do you have any lesion now?
User :   and when i pull my scrotum ....i pull the skin to make it tite and look close it gets red and looks like i have goose bumps... is that something bad?
User :   lesion?
Doctor :  
I shall explain it to you.
Doctor :  
But can i know if the swelling / wart is it still present?
User :   i dont see any i guess
Doctor :  
Ok Then the cause for the present problem may be contact dermatitis
User :   oh, my gf took those removed things to lab and they told her today they are sexual warts
User :   confirmed
Doctor :   90%
Doctor :  
Because i have not inspected physically i cannot be 100% sure.
Doctor :  
But your description matches it.
User :   so what should i do with the itchin then?
Doctor :  
It usually resolves on its own
User :   do u recomend to buy a cream?
Doctor :  
if there is no further irritation over the area.
Doctor :   the main irritation that happens is because of scratching.
User :   yes, but if i have/had warts and now i feel that area itching....dont u think it mite have something to do with the warts? refering to the itch
Doctor :  
You have noticed that the symptoms have been reducing
User :   can i possible have warts risk in my anus cuz of the itching?
Doctor :   Since there is no wart now and the itching has increased following the cream application
User :   i just had in top of the shaft, in close to bladder
Doctor :  
it do not think these warts are the cause for the symptoms.
User :   so no creams should i buy?
Doctor :  
I shall suggest you these.
Doctor :   There are creams available
Doctor :  
but not as OTC
Doctor :  
hence i shall suggest you these.
User :   is there any preventive creams for warts after removal? thats my main question i guess
Doctor :  
1. you need antihistaminics. so you can take tylenol cold one tabley at night for 5 days.
Doctor :  
there are preventive creams available.
Doctor :  
But they again not available as OTC.
User :   and also i would like u to be specific about having sex with my partner.....is it always gonna be a risk to have sex with her, for her to get it? she said she dsnt wanna ever have sex again because of that
Doctor :   The cause for the warts could be infection.
Doctor :   I did not comment on those because of lack of physical examination.
Doctor :   You can rule this out after consultation with a dermatologist.
Doctor :  
Sex can be continued if there is no infection.
Doctor :  
I wish it is just a simple benign lesion.
Doctor :  
But only a physical examination can confirm on the nature of the warts.
User :   no infection? but isnt my blood infected already? the analisys said positive for condoloma
Doctor :  
Ok.
Doctor :  
Then there is no restriction in sexual intercourse.
User :   so u mean is safe?
Doctor :   Yes.
Doctor :  
You can wait till the itching stops though.
User :   but what does " positive for condoloma" mean then?
Doctor :  
They are benign lesions
Doctor :  
Also known as simple warts.
Doctor :  
the exact cause for these are not known.
Doctor :  
But has to be differentiated with that due to infection.
Doctor :   Have you followed?
User :   perfectly
Doctor :  
Ok.
Doctor :  
So i shall brief the treatment for the present problem.
User :   so i have no infection with that result?
Doctor :   Yes.
Doctor :  
The treatment on your problem is
User :   i dont? or i do?
Doctor :   If it has been proved earlier that they are simple condoloma then you DO NOT HAVE ANY INFECTION
Doctor :   Have you followed?
User :   i do have infection then. But u said if its benign it should restrict me from sex
User :   shouldnt
User :   oh sorry i got it now. I missed second paragraph
User :   sorry
Doctor :   Ok.
User :   now i saw u wrote U DO NOT HAVE INFECTION
User :   thx
User :   so how come I GOT THEM?
User :   anyway
Doctor :  
If you are still not clear i shall brief again.
User :   i get it dr
Doctor :  
As i said the cause is not known.
Doctor :  
They occur sporadically in some people.
User :   what if i did get em sexually from another person? means i can spread them too?
Doctor :  
So presntly just relax
Doctor :  
use the medication that i suggested.
Doctor :  
you can get back to your normal life once the itching stops.
User :   i suspect i did cuz i did have a mistaken intercourse with some random woman twice..... i regret it cause she was married and i should ve know that she was an easy target and never did that...risking my own girl
Doctor :  
I will also recommend you to visit the dermatologist
Doctor :  
If the problem persits.

Doctor :

Doctor :  
So it may recurr/
User :   recum meaning i mite have warts come back ?
Doctor :

Doctor :  
There are possible chances that they may recurr i n some people.

Doctor :  
The complete nature of the wart will be suggested after examination.
