Fleshy bumps near anus, burning, itching. Sexually active. Scared of STD

i have two pink fleshy bumps 1 is right beside my anus and the other is in the fleshy part of skin between the vagina and anus . They don t hang but they do burn when wet, itch occasionally (when they itch it lasts for a while), and make it very uncomfortable to wipe after using the bathroom. I had tried putting tea tree oil on them but it gave me a horrible burning sensation and they haven t gone away. I noticed this probably a week ago. I am sexually active and i am scared that this might be an STD . I am 17 and my mother is against the idea of sex before marriage so I want to know if its something I should be alarmed about so i ll know if I need to see a doctor.

Hi there Caitlin.

Yes you need to see a doctor specifically a dermatoilogist to distinguish between a wart & a skin tag because that is what i suspect.

If it is the former, then yes, it may be sexually transmitted. If the latter, just a skin growth.

If you wish to be clear, please upload your photograph of the region onto this website. Should you wish discretion, then use the premier 'ask-a-specialist' feature & specifically ask for me.

I presume that as you state your mum is against the idea of pre-marital sex, you have been active. If so, please remember in the future practice safe sex in your interests & in the interest of public safety!

Do get back to me with the visuals & will be happy to opine further & give you a treatment option.

Best Regds,
