… if something happens such as genital warts, can the patient immediately use Imiquimod cream without having to check?

1 Answer:

Hi herpiansyah,

Genital warts are infections of the skin of the genital area caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) which causes lumps to appear in the genital area. Genital warts are one of the most common sexually transmitted infections. But in addition, complaints of lumps such as warts in the genital area can also be caused by:



Molluscum contagiosum (viral infection of the skin)

Fordyce spot (spot containing sebaceous glands)
Genital herpes

Scabies/scabies

It's best to avoid using creams without checking with your doctor first, so you should first consult with a skin and genital specialist to get treatment for the condition you are facing so that the cause of the complaint can be identified through a physical examination and also given appropriate therapy according to the complaint.

In addition, avoid risky sexual behavior such as frequently changing sexual partners. Use condoms when having sex to prevent transmission of infection and avoid manipulating warts to prevent complications that can occur.

I hope this information is helpful.

Regards,

dr. Irvandi
