Re: wat do i got

There are so many things it could be, including just an infected pore. Wait and see what the dr says.

Re: wat do i got

I would guess HPV (genital warts)

I have had just one small flesh colored “bump” for many years. Never even thought anything about it. Well now I have 2 more, very very small new bumps. Saw a doctor, he said HPV, & he is gonna laser them off. (fun while I sleep)

I saw photos on the net of genital warts, they looked horrible, and NOTHING like my small little flesh tone bump. Maybe those are advance cases left untreated. (???)

like herpes they are NOT rare at all. Nobody EVER talks about warts or herpes, so YOU just think you are the only one.

Good luck.

Re: wat do i got

What i heard, is that warts, like herpes, are not curable. But you can have them removed by a doctor. A friend of mine had HPV and her doctor told her that with both herpes and HPV, your body can eventually build up a tolerance against them, thats why you get fewer outbreaks. And with HPV, your body can eventually sometimes fight off the virus on it's own. It may take a while, but it can do it.

Unfortunately, those of us with herpes, they haven't found that the body can eventually overtake the herpes virus yet

I'm not a doctor anything so don't quote me on any of that, thats just what a doc told my friend. I would still go see a professional and see for sure what it is and if you should have it removed.
