are a sexually transmitted infection that is caused by the human papilloma virus. The virus produces flesh-colored, soft, irregular growths that can appear on the genitals themselves as well as on the skin around the genitals and the anus. Typically, these warts do not have pus inside of them and appear quite a bit different from blackheads or whiteheads.
That being said, it is also possible to get pimples (blackheads or whiteheads) in the genital region. In grown hairs and infection in the hair shafts (folliculitis) are also common, and all three of these conditions are more likely to give a lesion that looks more like a pimple.
If you have any spots that are concerning to you in your genital region, then the best thing to do would be to make an appointment with your primary care doctor
. They will be able to take a look at the spots and help figure out if this is a sexually transmitted infection or just a regular skin infection. Regardless of what they find, they will be able to give you recommendations about how to get the issue to clear up.
In the meantime, you should avoid sexual intercourse (if you are concerned about a sexually transmitted infection) until the spots can be evaluated. Make an appointment with your doctor as soon as possible.
