The Cause Can Grow Genital Warts Even Though Never Had Sex?
Hello dokI am 23 years old and not married just discovered yesterday had warts outside of my vgn while checking in spkk. After I searched and based on the doctor’s explanation, the common cause of warts is sexual transmission, whether it’s penetration or not. Though I have never had sexual intercourse once. I want to ask, is the only cause of the growth of warts is the sexual relationship? Is it possible for someone to get genital warts because of himself (not infected)? Because I feel accused of that fact. Please explain
Thank you for the question.
Lumps on the outside of the vagina one of which can indeed be caused by genital warts. This condition occurs due to infection with the HPV virus (human papillomavirus) which is mainly transmitted through sexual contact. In addition, direct or indirect contact with genital warts in other sufferers can also make you contract this disease. The risk of transmission will be higher if your immune system is not good, such as from diabetes, HIV, or other medical conditions. Typically, genital warts are characterized by bumps whose surface is uneven, the same color as skin or gray, rarely painful, and can continue to grow to resemble cauliflower.
In addition to genital warts, many other conditions can trigger lumps in the vagina, such as folliculitis, molluscum contagiosum, hyperkeratosis, contact dermatitis, benign or malignant tumors, hypertrophic scars, and so on.
The doctor who examined you, with his competence and experience, would certainly be more aware of the possibility of your condition and the best treatment. However, if in doubt, there is no harm in you looking for a second opinion, namely by checking yourself back at the doctor or other dermatologist, yes. You're the best handling.
Hope this helps ...
