Sexually Transmitted Diseases/HPV Genital Warts?



Hi, I don`t know how long I have those bumps.As far as I read online warts comes through sex. I never had sex in my life.And never used someone else`s towel,Do you think those are hpv warts or something else ?
thank you

Hi Chad,

It isn't HPV because that has to be transmitted from person to person; you were actually born with those. They're called Fordyce's spots and are a genetic skin condition which are similar to pimples. Except these are deep sebaceous cysts and should never be removed by you. If you find them unpleasant, consider making an appointment with a skin specialist to have them removed, but they CAN come back. They can also disappear over time and never reoccur again. Because they are so common, men and women learn to deal with them the world over and they don't just appear on your genitalia, but also your mouth. If you have follow-up let me know.

Best wishes,


Sexually Transmitted Diseases
