Thank you for the question.
Small spots that feel hot around the genitals can not only be caused by genital warts (HPV virus infection). It could also be that the spots on your genitals arise due to other triggers, such as genital herpes, syphilis, pearly penile papules, folliculitis, scabies, tinea cruris, contact dermatitis, skin tags, milia, molluscum contagiosum, cyst pilaris, cancer, etc. .
Masturbation is indeed very minimal, the risk makes you experience sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including genital warts and several types of diseases as we mentioned above. However, STI transmission can still occur if during masturbation you use unclean hands or use sex toys alternately with other people.
Our advice, you immediately check your genital complaints to a doctor or dermatologist and genitals. Simply by looking directly, often the doctor can give you the right treatment for your complaint. However, if necessary, your doctor may also direct you to undergo further examinations, such as biopsy, urethral discharge examination, and so on.
In the meantime, you should improve your genital hygiene, including by not having risky sex, cleaning your genitals with clean water after every bowel movement, and also changing your underwear regularly. Never squeeze or gouge spots on your genitals, let alone give him treatment carelessly without doctor's advice. Do not forget, do not carelessly use soap, fragrances, spermicides, sexual lubricants, or any chemical substances around the genitals.
I hope this helps.
