Brief Answer:
Could be molluscum or warts, upload pictures

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at healthcaremagic
According to your complaints it could be molluscum contagiosum or warts.
Both are sexually transmitted viral infections.
I would recommend you to upload the pictures of the affected areas so that I can have a clearer picture of the condition and can guide you accordingly.

Hi, I have warts on my anus which my doctor has said its HPV :( my question is that the doctor gave me some cream to treat these warts (Aldara 5% cream) I started putting this stuff on which burns after applied for for the second time then after the 3rd or 4th time the burning is quite bad and when I wipe my self it feels like the skin is being torn away via sand paper, I have noticed because of this cream that I get thick yellow gunk that comes from most of the area of the anus and surrounding skin, does this mean in allergic to this cream or is all this pain and yellow infection normal? as I am worried this will lead to turning into cancer etc
