Dr PG M.D. :

hi welcome to just answer

Customer :

Hello

Dr PG M.D. :

can you give me some moreninformation regarding your question?

Customer :

yes, of course.

Dr PG M.D. :

are there any similar lesions present in your vaginal area?

Customer :

no

Dr PG M.D. :

any symptoms like itching, irritation etc?

Customer :

not especially.

Dr PG M.D. :

ok

Dr PG M.D. :

the picture of the lesion looks like a wart

Dr PG M.D. :

a viral wart

Customer :

I accidentally scratched it, and a tiny bit of pus or something came out...

Customer :

oh, okay

Dr PG M.D. :

ok

Dr PG M.D. :

in some cases these warts resolve on their own

Customer :

I see

Dr PG M.D. :

if they do not resolve or cause symptoms like irritation/pain etc, then they need to be removed

Dr PG M.D. :

this can be done by using tricholacetic acid, or by freezing or by laser treatment

Customer :

Oh, I see. It wasn't really irritated until I touched it.

Dr PG M.D. :

but you need to be evaluated by a dermatologist to see whether this is a genital wart of not

Customer :

Oh, okay

Dr PG M.D. :

if yes, then you might need some investigations to look for HPV etc

Customer :

Hmmm.. okay.

Dr PG M.D. :

at present do not sctract it or apply anycream

Customer :

I have an appointment tomorrow, I'm just slightly frantic about it because I'm scared of herpes.

Customer :

I won't

Customer :

I had lipstick on earlier, but I took it off.

Dr PG M.D. :

herpes is usually painful

Dr PG M.D. :

thats good

Customer :

Oh, okay.

Customer :

I see.

Customer :

Is there anything I should ask my doctor about tomorrow?

Dr PG M.D. :

nothing specific

Customer :

okay.

Dr PG M.D. :

he/she will themselves evaluate you for causes of wart

Customer :

alright.
