Question: What are these? Firstly the thing on my stomach has been there for 7 months, i have been told several times its not a wart and that it is some type of scar or cyst. The thing on my penis recently popped up, it is a little more hard to touch, slightly raised and hurts a little with pressure, i have a feeling its going to become a boil. The thing on my stomach is painless, slighlty raised and it hasnt grown in size at all i dont think. I need answers i dont want to be misdiagnosed and end up giving somebody warts. By the way the thing on my stomach popped up 2 months after having unprotected sex and hasnt went away after 7 months. that is why it is hard to believe it is not a wart even though it is not on my genitals and on my lower stomach. I dont want to pass anything to anybody thats why i really want to know.

Brief Answer:
Folliculitis, apply topical antibiotic, doesn't look like a wart

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic
I have gone through your complaints as well as reviewed the attached photographs.
The thing on your penis seems to be a folliculitis which is inflammation of the hair follicle.
I would recommend you to apply a topical antibiotic like neosporin ointment or fusidic acid cream on the affected areas twice daily for 5-7 days.
This should resolve it.
As far as your stomach lesion is concerned it still looks like a scar.
I don't think it is a wart and you don't have to worry about transmitting the infection to others.
Still if the lesion on the stomach is bothering you, you can consult a dermatologist and go excision biopsy to find out what it is exactly.
On clinical examination it doesn't look like a wart at all.
Regards
Dr Asmeet

Hello sir, I have some warts on my penis since 10-12 yrs, I recently consulted with a dermatologist and he prescribed VDRL test (result-non reactive) and also Azithromycin, Acutret(Isotretinoin), Vitamin (D3), and Fusidic Acid cream however there are not mejor effevt in 15 days. Is it some bacterial infection or any viral infection? Please note that I never ever have any type of sexual activity or any exposure to drugs. I smoke regularly since last 3 years. Your suggestion matters as I do not have a very well qualified doctor here. Thank you and god bless you.
