Sexually Transmitted Diseases/genital warts questions


Hey DW,

I just had a couple of questions about genital warts. Essentially, my doctor examined me and said the very small bumps on my penis glans were nothing to worry about, but I am going to keep an eye on them anyways. Thus, the reasoning for some of my questions.

1) If I were to see any growth in these bumps, I am going to get them rechecked out as they may be warts. So my question is, if they were warts, over what time would I see growth?

2) He prescribed me Desonide for eczema I have, and said to try it on these bumps as they could be due to dryness. So I was wondering if these bumps were genital warts, would they react to the Desonide at all? Such as grow faster?


Dan, did you email me privately to which I answered your question? Let me know. I cannot diagnose over the internet or by pictures. You must get rechecked because you need to find out what is the problem. I don't know if genital warts would react to Desonide. Please let me know what the doctor said. My private email address is
