QUESTION: Hi can you help? Wondering what this is my partner has had thrush but we thought thya had gone, could this be due to use Vaseline has a lubricant?

ANSWER: Jamie,

That's just skin abrasions that will heal on their own. Note to self: NEVER use Vasoline as a lubricant! Only water and silicone based lubricants should be used for intercourse as oil based products destroy condoms and cause skin damage. Your problem should disappear in a few days.

QUESTION: That's Jon can you have a look at this, it's been there has long as I can remember but not sure what it is

I've been thinking its a skin tag?


You can do your own home test to determine if it's HPV. Take a QTip and dunk it in vinegar. Apply the solution to your skin tag; if it turns WHITE then it's positive for viral tissue and is HPV or pre-cancerous. However, if it stays that brownish color or pinkish tissue color then it's normal tissue and nothing to worry about! In either case you can have it removed by a dermatologist 😄
