Should I follow up with a dermatologist regarding this? I am not sure what this can be. I have the same spot on genital area for 2 weeks. It is raised but does not itch or hurt. What can this be?

You should definitely have this seen by the dermatologist. It looks like a blister and is verrocous and herpes should be ruled out.

Let me know if you have further questions.

How can it be herpetic. It's not a blister and has been the same for last 2-3 weeks .
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 2 months ago.

Thanks for reply.

Herpetic lesions can vary in shape and it can be one of them so it should be ruled out by a dermatologist.

Hello !

That small raised lesion looks like a small isolated genital wart

I recommend that you see a dermatologist

A single very small lesion would be very easy to eradicate and I would recommend a freeze treatment ..

Of your skin here has been exposed to a wart causing virus my concern is that other warts may appear in time

( IT IS NOT HERPES HOWEVER )

Freeze treatment you could do on your own but I recommend dermatologist as it may be that other warts may appear in time

I think to your advantage for Derm MD to have ability to follow over time

I hope this information is helpful for you

Let me know If you have further questions or concerns

I Will be happy to get back with you

If my answer has been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback

Thank you and Best Regards,

Hello Anthony,Can this be molluscum contagiosum?I find it very strange to be a wart. I have the same partner for many years ..
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Should I submit another photo?
Expert:  Anthony Bray MD replied 2 months ago.

It does not look like molluscum to me -- no to that ...

Molluscum has more a rounded appearance with dimple in center ...

Warts can have dormant virus in skin and emerge years later ...

Not a finger pointing scenario in my opinion!!

Other photo fine but if you need most reliable diagnosis then it could be removed by dermatologist >> submitted to pathologist for definite diagnosis ...

Base of excision may be cauterized or frozen

I hope this information is helpful for you

Let me know If I may be of further help

Best regards!

( dimple in middle --- I corrected it above but spell check had changed to simple ....)
