HPV and no symptoms in male

Hello,

I have jsut been informed by my girlfriend that she has condylomes (kind of HPV) and that I have given them to her. She has only had one other sexual partner and that was more than 18 months ago. I have also only had one partner before her but I have messed around with girls ( no sex) and may have got HPV from skin on skin contact. I feel terrible about it. She said she got treatment right away and now they are gone. The thing is I have no visible condylomes or warts to speak of. Starting from 4 months agi however, the head of my penis started burning and itching. I got tested and they did a swab and everything and I was fine. I still have this burning and itching sensation in my penis. Is this a possible symptom from genital warts? Again, I have never had a wart to begin with so how do I go about getting tested for HPV seeing that there isn't anything "visibly" wrong.
any suggestions?

Re: HPV and no symptoms in male

Unfortunately there is no HPV test for men. The only thing i can suggest is to do what gynecologist do to women when the examine them for cervical dysplasia. The apply acetic acid that turns whatever lesions they have on the cervix, white. You can do the same for yourself at home with plain old white vinegar. Use a qtip and apply on the areas you fel may be affected...within a couple of minutes if you have any type of lesion you will see a white discoloration. Should you notice something then you can consult a doctor and they will prescribe a cream. Hope this helps.
