Genital Warts is a sexually transmittable infection caused by some type of human papilloma-virus. Genital Warts are very easily recognized or the symptoms of a genital HPV infection. Persons infected can still transmit the virus, however another sources state that a large percentage of those who had sexual contact with an infected partner - may develop genital warts. What are the symptoms of Genital warts? Genital warts often occur in clusters and can be very tiny or can spread into large areas on penis area. They usually appear on the tip of the penis. They also may be found on the shaft of the penis or on the scrotum. Genital warts also can develop in the mouth, throat, lips of a person who has had oral sex with an infected partner! There is no way to predict whether the genital wart will grow or disappear. The bad new is that there is no cure or effective treatment for HPV, but there are techniques to treat visible genitalis warts, which can reduce infectivity, although there are no trials studying the effectiveness of treating visible warts in reducing transmission. Genital warts may disappear without any treatment or creams, sometimes they eventually develop a fleshy, small raised growth. Genital warts must be taken very seriously.
Here is an image showing Fordyce spots. Fordyce's spots are small white spots or bumps, non-infectious natural occurrence on the body, usually they appear on the shaft of the penis, they are approximately 2 to 3 mm in diameter. Most likely they are caused by sebaceous hyperplasia, an overgrowth of the lubricating glands, which keeps the skin from drying out.These bumps on the penis are completely harmless. It could be present on the scrotum as well, and usually affects younger men. On the head of the penis, these penis bumps are called Tyson glands not to be confused with genital warts or Hirsuties Papillaris Genitalis or Pearly penile papules. They are not itchy and they are not transmitted sexually. They are abnormally dilated blood vessels that are covered with thickened skin. The Fordyce's spots are named after a US dermatologist, John A. Fordyce. The penis spots are a form of sebaceous gland normally only found in association with the hair follicle. Fordyce bumps are not known to be associated with any illness and are of cosmetic concern only. Some people are embarrassed of the appearance of these bumps, and they want to remove them for cosmetic reasons. Most of these guys are worried about the appearance of their penis and their sexual partner opinion. They also call it Sebaceous Prominences.
