Strange skin around my anus. I am worried.
This condition is known as anal warts or anogenital warts or anus warts or condyloma acuminata.
Anal warts are caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). Most are caused by HPV strains 6 and 11. Becoming infected with these viruses does not automatically lead to developing anus warts since it can take months to years.
They area also a common sexually transmitted disease (STD) or sexually transmitted infection (STI). However not all anus warts are transmitted sexually. Anal warts can be transmitted non-sexually through the hands or using sex toys with the virus.
Symptoms of anus warts include the sensation of having a bump in the anus which is usually painless. However it can bleed, become itchy and even discharge mucus. By changing the appearance of the region, extensive anal warts also cause cosmetic disfigurement and psychological distress.
