Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have multiple skin growths resembling a skin tag on the inner surface of the foreskin of my penis, persisting for the past 3 months. There is no itching, pain, or any other associated symptoms. I am sexually active. Please help.

Thank you.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have carefully reviewed the information you provided, and I understand your concern.

It appears that you may be dealing with genital warts, caused by the Human papillomavirus (HPV). These warts can be transmitted through direct contact and sexual activities, and they may also occur in individuals with weakened immunity. Managing them involves a combination of medications, procedures, and oral immunity tablets. Recurrence may be a possibility, particularly in cases of weakened immunity.

I would suggest the following:

  1. Apply an extremely thin layer of Imiquimod 5% cream specifically on the affected area. Use the cream at night, five days per week for six weeks.
  2. If opting for manual removal by a doctor, Imiquimod may not be necessary due to its potential for causing a burning sensation and a longer duration for reduction.
  3. Take one tablet Ascazin 50 (Zinc) daily after dinner for two months to strengthen your immunity.
  4. Consider getting the warts removed using RF cauterization. This involves using a small pen-like probe to gently burn the affected area after applying a numbing cream. It is a quick and relatively painless procedure that typically removes the lesions completely in one session.
  5. Ensure that your partner undergoes treatment to prevent recurrences.
  6. Maintain a healthy diet.
  7. Schedule an in-person consultation with a doctor for examination and removal purposes.
  8. Avoid sexual activities until the lesions are completely gone or healed to prevent transmission.

There is no need to worry. With the recommended procedure and oral medication, the warts can be effectively managed.

I hope this information is helpful.

Thank you.

Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

Thank you for your response.

How did I contract this infection, and is there any need for antiviral treatment? Additionally, what is the recommended treatment for my partner?

Thank you.


Welcome back to icliniq.com.

HPV warts typically result from direct contact with an infected person or may be influenced by lowered immunity. There is no requirement for antiviral medications. You may proceed with the previously mentioned medications.

For your partner, treatment with Ascazin tablets is recommended if no active lesions are present. However, if active lesions are observed, RF cauterization may be necessary for their removal.

Hope this information is helpful.

Take care.
