Could someone help me figure out if I have genital warts on penile head?

Posted , 6 users are following.


About 1 week and a half ago, I noticed these little bumps on my penile head (under the foreskin), and I can't really seem to find any pictures that look similar. 

Background: I have been with the same girl for 3 years and there have never been any problems before, but I was wondering if any of you guys could help me figure out what this is (see pictures).

There is no burning when I pee, and the bumps do not itch or anything, so I kinda ruled out herpes, but I am not sure if they could be genital warts, since I've read that they can come in different shapes/sizes. I have also looked at fordyce and molluscum but I haven't been able to find any pictures that look the same.

I have ordered a checkup with a dermatologist, but the wait time is quite long, so I am seeking some answers to what it might be, in the meantime.

Thank you in advance.

    No one has seen similar symptoms, or have an idea what this could be? Are the pictures too vague/blurry?

    Hey Karstenlol.

    It looks to me they could be genital warts. 

    Some people only have one or two warts. These growths are located directly in the genital area, they are usually soft-to-the-touch and can be either raised or flat. Most of the time, genital warts appear in moist areas (that’s why its important to clean thoroughly and to keep dry) and do not cause discomfort or pain.

    One way to find out it they truly are is to apply Apple cider vinegar and see if that spot turns white.

    Another way is to see a doctor to get a sample removed for a HPV screening.

    There is no other test for a male so good luck.

      Hello George. Thanks for your reply. Is it painful to apply the vinegar, or could it make it worse? It could be interesting to see what would happen.

      I am definitely going to the doctor to get it checked out, and I'll make sure to come back with the conclusion so others with similar symptoms can get an idea of what it is.

      The infection causes rapid growth of cells on the outer layer of skin – consider a pile up of dried skin.

      There is no buildup of pus or blood to pop out if you squeeze a wart. Trying to pop a wart usually only creates more warts because doing so puts HPV in contact with more skin. Apple cider vinegar will work to dissolve the wart that will cause a white layer over the actual work.
