My gf recently had a minor hemorrhoid and took preparation H (to which she had an allergic reaction as a 13-year old many years ago). A week after stopping the Prep H use, she developed skin growths between the vagina and anus. They look like they could be warts but I also read allergic reactions could cause skin tags. We're monogamous and I've never noticed anything unusual on or around my penis. Could the growths be related to the hemorrhoid and Preparation H or is it likely a coincidence and they are warts?

  • If either of you has had sexual partners other than each other and these lesions do look like skin tags, then my guess is genital warts. She needs to see her OBGYN doctor. Even if this is not warts, you both need to know what it is.
