A bit of background - have had these for five months now. I've gotten a few new ones, so it's spreading. My doctors have given me mixed responses, some have said it's nothing, some have said molluscum, and some have said genital warts.
I noticed recently - and it's not as apparent in the photo because it was taken before the hair grew back - that the bumps have hair growing from the centre. Is that typical for genital warts?
I've had them for 5 months so I don't think it's nothing. I also don't think that it is molluscum, because I can't pop them. Sometimes they'll appear to have whiteheads, but they do not pop at all. Most of the time, they're skin coloured, making me assume the worst, that they are warts. But if they are warts, would hair be growing from them? If they aren't warts, is there anything else they could be?
** If you've had warts, were you ever able to clear them completely? I'm so distressed that this is something I could be living with for the rest of my life. I know the research is unclear with HPV and whether it ever leaves or just lies dormant, and it's making me so sad and anxious.
