HIV is also called retrovirus, containing RNA ribo nucleleic acid, which is changed into DNA during reproductive process of viruses by using all enzymatic material of the hosts' cells.

There is another type of virus, which is placed under the sub group retrovirus, called lento viruses.

    Ok I have these brown line going down my penis and there are white dots around the penis and some in my testicles .I’m circumcised and is this normal.Will it go away or stay forever.

    • Don’t worry, everything you describe is normal.
      The spots are probably Fosdyce’s spots and almost everyone has them to some degree from puberty onwards.
      (See link 1)
      The line you describe is the penis raphe. All males have one and it is very noticeable on baby boys. In the womb, the scrotum is formed from the same tissue that would become the labia in girls. The line is where the two labia fuse together.
      As you get older it can become less pronounced, but it is totally normal for it to remain prominent too.
      (See link 2)
      (I’m glad I didn’t go to the same medical school as TOMTOM22)

  8. Is this just a rash or should I be worried?
    I know this isn’t an STD because I’m a virgin, but I have this rash on my labia ( I think, not too good with the geography of my vagina) and it’s been there a while. It’s a series of red spots and it itches constantly and really bad. I also have white stuff (looks like dandruff) and I don’t know if this is due to lack of care (I wash it pretty well every day) or something else. So, what exactly can it be and what can I use to treat it?
    Thank you for your help.

  11. Is there a possibility that I could have and STD of some kind?
    I have small raised bumps in my vaginal area mostly around my inner labia. There is mild itching an burning and some white/yellowish discharge. Not sure if it is associated with it, but I also have a sore throat with a tiny bit of white spotting on my tonsils and the lymph nodes on my neck are swollen. Could this be an std? I haven’t had any sexual contact for two months.

    • If you have been sexually active, there is always a chance of contracting an STD. It is important to get into your doctor right away and get it checked out and treated, if indeed it is an STD. Althought condoms in an of themselves, will not prevent an STD, they do dramatically cut down our your chances of getting one.

    the different symptoms. how can you tell the different symptoms.
    i kno a yeast infection is itchy, and irrtation.
    and warts is itchy irritating and white spots.
    but i seem to think a yeast infection has a little of white spots also. which makes it llok like a yeast infection.

    • A yeast infection has a white discharge, not white spots.

      warts are going to be present on the skin on and around your vulva, and they may not be obvious to you. A yeast infection is internal, with a white discharge, and sometimes itching or burning in your vagina, and around your labia. They are two completely different problems with different symptoms. It can also be likely that you don’t feel or see warts.
