How do I know...

How do I know if I have pimples or Genital warts?

Doctor's Assistant: Can you tell me about all the symptoms you've noticed (e.g. itching, rash, new birthmarks or moles)?

They are small white dots with red around them

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the dots better or worse?

Less than a week, topicals seem to help the pain from touch

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Married, no std history for wife and I. Not worried about either of us cheating, stressful week

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
