Hi,

I had before.

You can get treatment at National Skin Centre.

You can apply medication which will take a long time. Or you can have it eletrocuted so that it will drop off. The electrocution will be immediate. They will apply something first so that you dun feel so pain but it's still painful to me. After that, you will have a small wound and you will need to apply medication every day until it is healed. Doing big business will be a chore as it will be painful if you wipe your ass with toilet paper, try using water to wash instead.

Just have to endure for 1-2 weeks and it will be ok.

And at the meantime, please do not go around getting laid. :D

Beside what NSC had recommended?

Well you can try the traditional way. Get someone to snip it off with a scissor and then burn off the wound. Of course since it is so close to your arsehole, it could be painful. Make sure you shave off all anal hairs before applying the flame to the wound.

There is an Indian way involving chilli padi. Pound 100 gm of chilli padi into a paste and apply them to the warts. Cover with plaster. make sure you don't get any of the paste into your arsehole.

The Malay method involves sniping off excess skin and then wearing a sarong. Oh sorry, that was meant for circumcision. Salah lah.

I think the best way is still to swallow your pride and see a doctor. Check out the following sites for info.

anyone else got anal warts before? and what did the doctor recommend to be the best way to remove the warts?

Hi,

Not sure why you still asking and not trying what I recommended? It's the 2 ways that my doctor recommended and I did it before. If you are afraid of pain, then use the medication method. It might drop off after sometime painlessly.

For me, I prefer to have it done once and for all. Check with your doctor lor. B)

I had surgery under general anaesthesia two months ago and the warts are back again.

The surgeon says to go for another surgery under general anesthesia. It is more than $1,500.

Question and answer on recurring anal warts from www.gayhealth.com website.  Hope it help.

http://www.gayhealth.com/templates/1121965...rd=365&answer=1

Thanks for the link to the website.

Any one else have this recurring anal wart problem?

If the anal warts come back every few months, and each time need the surgery to remove, it adds up to a lot of money.

Have anyone made a claim against their Hospitalisation and Surgical (H&S) insurance policy for the surgery to remove anal warts?

Please advise.

Well, a relative had Fistula once. It's like a small pimple that gets bigger and bigger. It's actually a micro hernia that goes from inside the rectum and penetrates on the outside. Because of this, the shit water goes in and some thing solidifies in the microcanal. But the water still leaks out the fistula opening.

General and majority opinion is that the western docs can operate it but if it's not cleanly cleaned and closed, it'll pop out again somewhere else.

In the end, my relative went to a Chinese fistula specialist, (not even a physician) who removed it with a method. (Many specialist have many methods). Thinking about the removal method makes me queasy.

It cost about SGD 1500, but the guy guarantees the result.

The specialist even relate about how many patients who ignore him and went for western docs (because they want to claim their insurance) , eventually came back to him, but sometimes it's too late.

It's really not sexual at all, as the patients range from 12 year old kids to old men to normal 20 something people. Anyone can get fistula. That's why parents of old time always ask the young kids never to sit on pillows or chairs sat by old folks.

The two causes of fistula seems to be heatiness and eating rotted fruit (probably with some mini maggots that you can't see). The specialist named the papaya as the main culprit. The trauma went through by my relative makes me queasy enough to shun papayas for good

Hope I don't get too far out of topic. Get it diagnosed first and good luck

Did you have only external anal warts removed at NSC?

Things get complicated if there are internal anal warts to be removed. Internal anal warts are warts inside the anus. Internal anal warts can only be removed by surgery under general anesthesia. This surgery costs a lot more.

Oh, then maybe its different. I think mine is external coz its just at the entry to my anal.

Just curious. How do one discover internal anal wart then? They feel pain?

I had piles. After shitting, the piles protuded out of the anus, and I can feel some growth with my finger.

I went to see the doctor, and he used an instrument (like a short test tube) to see the inside of the anus. The doctor diagnosed as internal anal warts.

Have the doctor checked the inside of your anus before?

Were your external anal warts very near the anus hole or a bit further away from the anus? How many treatments you had? What kind of treatment?

Have any guy fxxked you without condom before?

Sorry to hear of your concern. Hope this will help you understand what herpes is all about.

Herpes are mainly manifested at the groin and sex organ areas. And to the ordinary eyes, it is not alarming as when it subsides, it looks nothing more than a dried pimple or a scarred secular mark. However, as the saying goes, the only thing that lasts and stays with you forever is not love but herpes! As for your symptoms, it is not common for a pimple to grow along the length of your penis. I gather that this is the first time you are experiencing this but ask yourself : each time before herpes surfaces, do you feel extremely fatigue, particularly with a tired breaking back that you wish you could lie down for a few hours, or tired as if you are going to have flu or fever. This may last for a day or so only. If the pimple goes away after a week or 10 days, don’t be happy yet. The first timer will suffer another eruption only after about 8 months or a year before it starts to haunt you on a regular basis. The only direct treatment to ease the itch and ‘burning’ sensation is an application of Zovirax, purchasable only from prescription or pharmacies. It is an expensive cream in a tube. The other alternative is an application of Chinese herbs which really ‘corners’ the virus into dormant submission, meaning you may not suffer an eruption for a period of six months or more. Take note that herpes manifests itself when the host body is stressed or anxious over an impending event or incident. Please note that it is only social obligations that you should restrain from contact with your sexual partners when you are going through an ‘eruption’ periods.

Something encouraging for gays:

Page-Shafer is a researcher at the Center for AIDS Prevention at the University of California, San Francisco. At the 2004 World AIDS Conference, she presented data from a study of 400 men whose only form of sexual behavior was receiving oral sex. Despite little condom use with multiple partners -- including partners known to be infected with HIV -- none of the men came down with HIV infection.

"We had zero infections over 1,493 person-years of exposure to oral receptive sex," Page-Shafer tells WebMD. "This doesn't mean there aren't factors that contribute to easier HIV transmission by oral sex. It does happen. But data confirm it is a pretty rare occurrence."

Sex Diseases in Many Gay Men Go Unfound, Experts Say

By LAWRENCE K. ALTMAN

Many cases of sexually transmitted diseases are escaping detection because gay men are not being tested each year as advised, federal health officials said Wednesday. And if the men do show up, the officials added, many doctors and clinics are not following screening recommendations.

But more cases could be detected if the government approved new ways to use a type of DNA test that is already on the market, the officials and researchers said in a news conference at a scientific meeting in Chicago.

They said the test, used in new ways, could detect twice as many cases of gonorrhea and chlamydia as standard tests.

Those diseases, along with syphilis, whose incidence continues to increase, are “a major threat to gay and bisexual men’s health,” said Dr. Kevin Fenton, a top official of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Dr. Fenton noted that such diseases increased the risk of contracting and spreading H.I.V., the virus that causes AIDS.

Screening for sexually transmitted infections is a critical part of medical care for sexually active men. The C.D.C. recommends annual blood tests for H.I.V. and syphilis, and other tests for gonorrhea and chlamydia.

Gonorrhea tests should include specimens from all potential sites of exposure — throat, genitals and rectum — because identifying and treating all such infections is essential for preventing spread of the disease.

“There are circumstances where the recommendations are not being followed,” said Dr. John M. Douglas Jr., who directs the Division of S.T.D. Prevention at the disease control centers.

Dr. Douglas added that some doctors did not recognize the problem while others seemed to think “that maybe the guidelines do not apply to my patient population.”

Supporting evidence came from C.D.C. researchers, who reported three studies at the meeting showing that the screening rates were too low.

Dr. Kristen Mahle’s study found that among gay men who showed no symptoms of gonorrhea, more than a third of rectal infections with the disease, and more than a quarter of throat infections, were missed because many were not tested at all anatomical sites of recent exposure.

Dr. Eric Tai’s study surveyed non-H.I.V.-positive gay men in 15 cities from 2003 to 2005 and found that only 39 percent reported having been tested for syphilis, and only 36 percent for gonorrhea.

Dr. Karen Hoover found that while doctors tested 82 percent of H.I.V.-positive gay men in eight cities for syphilis in 2005, they tested 22 percent or fewer for gonorrhea and chlamydia.

One problem is that public health departments that run sexual disease clinics do not have adequate staffs and budgets to do comprehensive testing.

“Let’s be honest, resources are a challenge at a federal, state and local level,” said Dr. Douglas, of the disease control centers. “We are trying to be as innovative as we can with public health resources,” but “we need help from others.”

Another problem is that newer tests are not being used as much as they should be, Dr. Douglas said.

The DNA test that Dr. Douglas and others described as promising is called NAAT, for nucleic acid amplification test. It is generally more accurate and easier to use, and it can detect at least twice as many gonorrhea and chlamydia infections in the throat and rectum, according to studies by Dr. Julius Schachter of the University of California, San Francisco, and others. Moreover, it is faster than the traditional bacterial culture tests.

The Food and Drug Administration has approved three NAATs to screen for gonorrhea and chlamydia in the genitalia, but not the throat or rectum.

Dr. Schachter’s team, which included the San Francisco Department of Public Health, sought to determine whether the marketed NAATs were also effective in throat and rectal screening.

The C.D.C. is working with the food and drug agency and with test manufacturers to gather, analyze and coordinate the submission of data for federal approval of NAATs for use in the throat and rectum.

The San Francisco Department of Public Health has conducted a study that met F.D.A. requirements for such use. Now the health department uses NAATs to test for chlamydia and gonorrhea at all three anatomic sites.

This sounds troubling. I wonder what the incidence rate is for all such quoted STDs amongst the MSM population here? Does AFA or MOH have the relevant data? I know one can go for testing for HIV and syphilis at DSC, but what about testing for gonorrhea and chlamydia? Does DSC also conduct such tests for the last two kinds of diseases, upon demand? I hope someone from AFA can answer these questions. Thanks.

Yes, DSC does perform tests for chlamydia and gonorrhoe using swabs on your throat, rectum and penis. As long as you tell the DSC staff you are MSM, they will offer such tests and other blood tests.

Please share your knowledge or experience.

Yes, I had it.

You should immediately visit the clinic for sexually transmitted diseases. It's somewhere around bugis. It's also where there is the anonymous HIV testing.

The type of treatment varies depending on the size of you warts. If you've left them untreated for some time, you may want to surgically remove them.

However, if the doctor thinks it appropriate, you can undergo liquid nitrogen treatment. That involves your warts being sprayed with liquid nitrogen. This is done on a weekly basis. And it hurts.

If you're warts are minute, then you can request for the dermatologist to prescribe you a cream. When my warts recurred, which was very small by then, I used this. It was painless and the warts went off in 2 weeks. Warts do recur, but it's also possible that they don't. All depends on your immune system.

If you want to do it at NSC, then just prepared that you're consultation may involve medical students on their residency!

I just want to share with u guys. Just be safe do not think that STD is other people's problem as it is so easy to get it if you risk it. Non anal type of warts can be transmitted easily, like getting a cut from swimming pool tiles, floor in public toilets being barefooted etc.

The cheapest way to treat anal warts is to go to NSC.

Doctor will need to check if the warts has gone inside the anus. He will bring you to a room, locked it with may be a medical technician and apply lube on his gloved fingers and check inside. If you are lucky, it is only external warts to treat. Internal will require surgery.

The initial treatment on external warts will be using a cream which is quite corrosive. Its purpose is to 'eat' into the skin and let the cauliflowered looking skin to drop off. So there could be some biting pain when it is left on the skin. This as it is mentioned will take daily application and discomfort like itch n pain when u sit down. The process has to take some time.

The next procedure if cream is not very effective, also mentioned before, is using liquid nitrogen to spray onto it. It requires a few visits which should be alternated in at least a week each. It is fast n some pain but is not unbearable. The male technician at NSC will ensure privacy and is done in a private room.

After that, just apply cream and it should heal qutie fast. As wart is viral, you will not be 'cured' as virus will stay in your body for life. However, as long as your body's immune system is strong, it may not recur at all. The test to see if the area is infectious with the wart virus is using some kind of vinegar base solution, and once the warts react to it, the skin colour will show. If it does not show, it means the virus has been treated.

hope this helps.

Hi,

I have a friend who had it not long ago. Go to the clinic at Kelantan Lane. Over there, what they'll do is spray nitrogen in the area. It doesn't hurt but you may have to come down like once a week for the next 3-4 weeks.

It will only cost you $5. $20 for registration but they will return it to you after that.

Do give it a try.

It doesn't hurt? Liquid Nitrogen sprayed on human skin will hurt. But the pain is bearable.

Guest Anal Wart

Sorry to hear about the anal warts - you should abstain from any sexual activity; and if you know who passed this onto you, please advise him the same.

I had mine removed at SGH - you should got see a doctor immediately - there is really no better way.

As I had numerous warts by the time I saw the doctor, they had to be surgically removed. This was done under GA. After the surgery, the post-care was really difficult as the wounds kept bleeding, so much so that I had to be hospitalized to stop the bleeding. The post-op bleeding was so bad, I had to wear adult diapers to stop it from soiling my pants and bedsheets; cannot sit on the chair as it aggravated the wounds - it was just a mess for a month or two. The wounds took some time to heal, but eventually they did.

So please get it treated early. Much regards.
