Thanks for posting your query.
I would not say you have cause for concern but yes, they do need to be attended to.
There are different approaches to treatment from the application of topical podophyllotoxin solution to the warts to destroy them to destroying them using cryotherapy (liquid nitrogen) or Electrotherapy (hyfrecator, heat basically) or removal with lasers.
Salicylic acid preparations for topical application are effective and a few are available OTC like- Occlusal HP, Duoplant, Compound W, Duofilm, Wart-off,Wart-peel, Virasal to name a few. Please apply them twice a day for 10 days.
If there are still the lesions then you may need liquid nitrogen cryotherapy ablation of the lesions by your dermatologist.
Refrain from sexual contact until the problem is resolved or use protection (condom) in the interim. Please remember to treat your partner/s' as the case may be to prevent recurrences.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.

Pls. accept my heartfelt thanks for the info. above.

Do i need to have any vitamins to boost my immune if yes kindly decipher words of knowledge on that as well. I am worried for my tonsils as well i get black phlegm sometimes.

I have read warts c/d be the reason for Cervical cancer so should i go for pap smear ?

Many thanks Dr. Tayal.

Thanks for writing again.
You can take vitamin B complex and Vitamin C supplements to boost up your immunity. Getting a PAP smear done will be appropriate.
The black phelgem could be due to an infection or an old bleeding. You can consult an ENT specialist for a physical examination and proper treatment.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.

Well I have developed these bumbs on the outer side of my vagina. They are not genital warts because I am a virgin. They aren t gross looking either. They are red and some look like pimples. They are on my butt too a little bit. They are itchy and when i itch them they hurt. My dads girlfriend said it could be from shaving and a mixture of wearing pads. So for the last two days I have been wearing tampons but the bumps are still there and still itchy. I read some things and girls said pads are causing them to have like chemical burn, but these loads haven t ever bothered me this much. So I don t know what it is or what to do. What do you think?

Hello. I had a leep procedure done without my doctor doing a colpo. She mentioned that she will do the colpo during the leep procedure and that I need to have it done anyway because I came back at high grade HPV. She cut off a huge chunk of my cervix in which all of it was normal tissue. Now I m having all kinds of sharp pains in my pelvix, pain during intercourse and weird periods that stay on for about two weeks. I went to another obgyn who stated that this doctor should not have done the leep without doing the colpo first to see if it was even necessary. Do I have a lawsuit and what can I do about this?
