Genital warts?

03/22/2004

Question:

My 18 year old son has 7 reddish bumps at the bikini line of his genital area. He said they do not itch. They all have come up within the last 3 weeks. Could this be some kind of sexually transmitted disease? They are almost like a hanging mole but reddish.

Answer:

It is impossible to tell from just a description what these may be. If they still are present, however, they should be seen by a dermatologist to determine what they are.
