my girlfriends doctor told her she has hpv and now a year later I have flat warts on my penis they are painless, theres no redness, blisters or puss and theirs only two or three but im worried how do I know its not herpes.
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out.
Herpes presents as one or more blisters on or around the genitals or rectum. The blisters break, leaving tender ulcers (sores) that may take two to four weeks to heal the first time they occur. From your symptoms it looks like warts rather than herpes sores.
They are usually the skin colour only. They are acquired through sexual transmission only. Iâll suggest consulting a doctor as without a physical examination and investigations , the diagnosis is usually not possible.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
