Ask a Dermatology Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi there, This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
It will be great if you can post a picture here.
Based on your descriptions there can be following possibilities:
1. Genital wart ---fleshy growth is commonly a wart unless proven otherwise.
2. Skin tag-- this can be confused with wart sometimes.
Skin tag is benign while genital wart is caused by the HPV virus and hence contagious.
3. Sebaceous cyst --skin gland cyst --a benign condition.
The treatment of wart and skin tag is to remove them by a dermatologist.
There is also a medication called Aldara cream that can be applied daily for its resolution in 4 to 6 weeks.
It was my pleasure to help you today.

Those pictures were taken yesterday when I submitted my question.
I applied some clobetasol propionate 0.05% cream last night before bed and upon waking this morning the bump does feel slightly smaller and less prominent, although maybe this could just be a placebo affect!?
I can take more pictures of the bump today but I am at work currently so would have to be later this evening.
