From the description that you have given and the photo that you have sent , it does look like you have got a genital wart . This condition is associated unprotected sexual intercourse most commonly however it can also come from use of public toilet seats , public towels and can also spread from warts on other parts of the body like the foot in your case. This condition can be treated with the use of Imiquimod cream 5 % twice a week application. you can also try application of Apple cider vinegar which should be applied daily on the area . The other method of removing this wart is by use of cryotherapy or chemical cautery at the dermatologist clinic. Do you have any idea if your partner with whom you had unprotected sexual intercourse also had the warts?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
A partner has just recently found out she has hpv. But stated there was no warts.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
She claims she got it from me but I've checked with 2 other partners from earlier this year and they stated they are clean.
