What are genital warts and what are the signs and symptoms of it ?

Hi I am 18 years old and sexually active. I have a relationship with a girl who was HPV positive but assured me is was not the wart causing strain. Jus a week or so ago i noticed 3 very small white lumps on the side of my penis head (glans). They don t hurt and are very small almost unnoticeable and disappear when i am erect. Do you think they are genital warts?

Hi,
the warts you described are likely that they may be vineral warts.
As you have relation with a girl who is HPV positive,you also may get infection so go for HPV testing.
So you consult STD specialist and seek his advice.

I shave my pubes and a couple days ago I noticed a medium sized round red irritated bump that itches and hurts when I close my legs I ve had a partner for over a year but we recently split and I had sex with one other person what are my possibilities of having genital warts I ve had bumps befor like this but not as big as this one. this one doesn t show any signs of like a puss head or like a hair in it so I m scared. there s only one. me and my partner are back together of one year and he had sex with someone else too so maybe I might have caught something from him but I normally get bumps when I shave so I feel like this is a razor bump how do I know? I take birth control and recently missed a day or two so if had some reddish discharge

I have a small, painless white bump on my clitoris. I've tried to pop it, but nothing happens. It seems very callus like. Is this possible? I'm sexually active, and I've had the Gardasil shots, so I'm not concerned it's warts, but I have no idea what else it could be?
