Dr. David :

genital warts look like a small cauliflower

Dr. David :

under a magnifying glass.

Dr. David :

if it doesn't look like a small cauliflower, and if it is smooth, then most likely it is not a genital wart

Dr. David :

and it is a fordcye spot on the shaft of the penis.

JACUSTOMER-07puimrc- :

This doesn't look like a cauliflower. It is more or less circular. Are they usually in clusters. More than one?

Dr. David :

circular and smooth sounds like a fordcye spot.

JACUSTOMER-07puimrc- :

Its not smooth. It is slightly raised above my penis. I can just about feel it if I run my fingers over.

Dr. David :

if it looks like a pimple, then most likely it is just a pimple

Dr. David :

from a blocked skin pore.

JACUSTOMER-07puimrc- :

I do a lot of masturbating and sometimes rub skin of my penis. Could this be causing it please?

Dr. David :

yes,

Dr. David :

excessive masturbation can rub the skin and block skin pores.

JACUSTOMER-07puimrc- :

The doctor said it looked like a small wart but he was a GP in a private clinic.

Dr. David :

can you upload a clear jpg photo?

JACUSTOMER-07puimrc- :

I don't know how to do it sorry.

Dr. David :

warts are caused by HPV virus and this virus can be easily spread through sexual contact.

Dr. David :

but it is not a lifetime infection.

Dr. David :

90% of adults with normal immune systems can clear HPV virus infections in 2 years .

Dr. David :

so even if it is a small wart, it doesn't mean you will have genital warts for life.

Dr. David :

do you have any other questions?

JACUSTOMER-07puimrc- :

Yes. Could it possibly be a wart that is not infectious?

Dr. David :

warts are caused by HPV virus and HPV virus is easily spread through sex.

Dr. David :

why don't you take a break from masturbation and see if it gets better.

Dr. David :

it could get better.

JACUSTOMER-07puimrc- :

Thank you.

Dr. David :

thanks.

I am still worried about this wart. The top of it is flat but it is slightly raised above the skin. There is only one,and it doesn't look like a small cauliflower to me. It only looks like a few of the images I have seen on the internet. Can you give me some more information please.

it sounds most likely like a pimple from a blocked skin pore.

excessive masturbation can acuse blocked skin pores.
