I have recently contracted genital warts that are visible around the base of my penis. I just moved to Texas, so I do not have a physician that I see regularly and I don't know where to go to get an official diagnosis and begin treatment. What kind of doctor should I be looking for that would specialize in treating HPV and genital warts?

Hello Houston and welcome to our message boards,

Review treatment options for genital warts at http://www.ashastd.org/hpv/hpv_learn_warts.cfm#7.

General practice health care providers are usually fine to diagnose and treat genital warts; those preferring specialists sometimes choose urologists or dermatologists. Often, public clinics such as those run by city/county health departments have experience in treating genital warts, too. If you need a clinic referral, let us know your ZIP code and we'll search for one in your area. You can send such requests to hpvnet@ashastd.org - this email address is for clinic referrals only.

I hope this helps and let us know if more questions come up.

Best,
Fredo
