it self you have used a nodule like swelling which is itching and with mild pain.Why you give it as a nomenclature of wart as number is 2-3 ,generally wart doesnot come in 1 month in seconndary stage of syphlis or primary papillvirus infection it takes long time but it may be a primary infection with chancre as Ducrey's or first lesion of syphllis .
You are requested to undergo VDRL,PTREPENOMMA PLLIDUM ANTIGEN TEST,HIV1-II OR POSSIBLE THEN P-24 ANTIGEN TEST FOR hiV or also test for HPV.
WARTS MAY BE CAUTERISED ELECTRICALLY OR CHEMICALLY WITH TCA OR PODOPHYLLIN. BU RECURRENCE IS COMMON.PREVENTION IS BY WAY OF HPV VACCINE.

Hai,
Warts is not exactly the manifestation of HIV. It may be a marker of HIV as both sharing common mode of transmission and epidemiological characters. Genital warts is one of the Sexually transmitted diseases.It is caused by a virus called HPV. Nowadays vaccination for this condition is available and recommended for both boys and girls of adolescent age to prevent HPV infection and cervical and penile cancers in future. It can be cured by physical or chemical cauterization. You can approach a dermatovenreologist or genitourinary physician, they will help you. Dr SM

I too have some jelly like nodules on my private parts and also many parts of my body, i thought as warts and took home treatment no improvement and finaly doctor scolded me for not consulting during the early days. The point is finally they are not warts but skin tags. So please go to doctor for any skin problem than self treatment
