This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Expert:  Dr David replied 2 months ago.

the health care workers at planned parenthood are pretty well experienced.

they have seen a lot of genital warts.

you can get a skin biopsy to get more information

but most gyn doctors and nurses can tell the difference between genital warts and vesticular papulae

genital warts tend to be hard

vesticular papulae tend to be soft

let me know if you have questions.

ok. they are def. soft and dont look like cauliflower , flesh cloored. the nurse practicitioner laughed because I kept asking her if she was sure. I know i cant see inside my own body very well but is there a reason I wasn't told/hadnt noticed them before? Also, will they go away on there own? Google is the absolute worst when you think your health may be in jeopardy, lol.

they sound like vesticular papulae.

they are common and benign.

they are not dangerous and will eventually go away on their own.
