Weird wart is it hpv?
An_256512 posted:
I have noticed a bump but I thought it was just another ingrown hair and stopped worrying about it. This morning I looked at it again and it has grown it is raised and somewhat painful to touch. It's bright pink also. I'm slightly worried that it's hpv? Help! I took a picture but have no way of posting it here

It could be that what you are seeing is an ingrown hair as you suspected. Ingrown hairs irritate the skin and produce red, raised bumps or a number of bumps. Sometimes they can form a painful boil-like sore, which may be what you are experiencing now. Gential warts (HPV) can take on many different shapes and appearances -- they are usually not painful, but they can cause mild pain, bleeding and itching. If you are worried that the bump is associated with the symptoms of HPV listed in the link above, it would be a good idea to make an appointment to see your doctor for a proper diagnosis and any necessary treatment.

Best wishes,
