Hello,
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

HPV or human papilloma virus causes warts which are transmitted through skin-to-skin contact, usually during sexual intercourse. It can also be transmitted through oral sex.

Warts are light, dark or flesh colored small growths forming rough surface in the skin. You can attach the photos with your post. Diagnosis of genital warts is usually clinical, made by visual inspection. Genital warts can be confirmed by biopsy but sometimes a technique called acetowhitening in which 5% acetic acid solution is applied to the area of suspicion for about 5-10 minutes. The effected area may turn white.

Whether you have genital warts can be confirmed only after physical examination by a dermatologist.

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.
