Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hi. Dr Rick here. I completed an Internal medicine internship in NYC and have two decades of clinical experience. How can I assist you today?
Can you tell me a little bit about what has been going on?
Do these lesions itch? Hurt?
Are they anywhere else?
How long have they been present?
Any other symptoms?
Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?
This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. I look forward to helping you.
Those do not look like genital warts but, even if they were, a pap smear would not pick this up.
Those appear to be areas of sebaceous retention cysts.
They are not from an infection or a STD.
In many cases they go away on their own, sometimes hot compresses or sitting in a hot bath can help. In rare cases they need to be removed by your doctor.
So. What is the take home message?
These are nothing to worry about and a quick exam by your OB/GYN should be able to tell you with certainty what is going on.
Does this make sense to you?
I am happy to be able to help you today. If you would be so kind, please help me get credit for my efforts in answering your questions and press the excellent feedback button for this encounter.
