Second post on here in a few days.
How do you know the diff. between skin tags and warts? I noticed several very small light brown places on my groin area right where my underwear touches my skin. They are single and spread apart-3 on one side- 2 on the other. I know I shouldn't have but I messed w/one and it bled a lot. They look like really tiny skin tags. I was recently told I have (LSIL) HPV b/c of a vulvar colposcopy/biopsy, but don't know what type. I know only the Dr. can tell me for sure.

Hi there,

I just left a response to your other post, too. Warts can take a variety of appearances - large or small, rough or smooth, skin colored or sometimes reddish or dark, and so on. Warts can have a look that's similar to other skin conditions, including skin tags, but most health care providers feel pretty confident they can tell the difference with a visual exam.

Let us know what you find out, if you don't mind.

Best,
Fredo

Fredo-
Thank you for responding to both of my posts. I have been so worried about all of this. I am lucky enough to never have had to deal with a STI so I dont really know how to handle it. I will be back in the Dr.s office in exactly 10 days and will definitly post what she tells me. Thank you again.
