Bumps on genitals, spreading and forming larger clusters, not sexually active. Genital warts?

Hi, I was wondering if it is possible to have genital warts without having any sexual activity. I had these bump-like growths on my genitals for as long as I can remember and it seems to be spreading very, very slowly into larger clusters. I have no idea what it is, but if I looked at some pictures of genital warts and it almost looks like it could be it.

Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

Genital warts spread by close physical contact.

Though sexual exposure with an infected partner is the most common spread of infection, rarely one can get warts by physical touch or other form of contact with infected person.

If you are suspicious, I encourage you to visit the nearest sexually transmitted disease centre. Careful examination followed by vinegar solution test, DNA PCR test is entailed.

If proven, you will need wart removal cream, HPV vaccinations and other symptomatic treatment.

Hope this helps.

Regards
