Is this an infection, syphilis, genital warts or HIV?

I have a potential sex partner(with whom I have not yet had sex) who appears to have some kind of genital warts (…interior thigh….) If I send a picture of these warts/genitals can you identify the problem..or the likely infection? Not sure if this is HPV or maybe Syphilis, or maybe something more innocuous

Hi
Picture is not clear but my opinion it looks like Lipomas (fatty cysts) or Sebaceous Cyst , however if you are still concerned I recommend asking him/her to see a dermatologist
I can help more if you can tell if it is painful or itchy or not
Good Luck

Hi,
My opinion is that those are just sebaceous cysts or infected hair follicles..
You may let him see specialist for a close investigation or send a more clear close photo.

Hi it could possibly be warts caused by HPV 1 or 2 .It is transmitted by close contact if there is broken skin .They are contagious.They usually recover in their own in 6-12 months but larger ones may need laser treatment or freezing with nitrogen.Get it examined by a dermatologist.Take care!

Another possibility is folliculitis. A clinical examination is absolutely necessary.
