Is it possible to have a sore, or a wart or anything like that on your genitals and it be something else? I mean , if you were to ever get something like that could it ever be something else? or would it autamatically be an STD? What else could it be?

That's a question that could best be answered by a professional who could examine the lesion in question. There's a pretty big difference between a sore and a wart. Only someone with experience will be able to look at whatever is going on and let you know what the cause is. Is anything that shows up on your genitals automatically an STD? Not necessarily. But anything out of the ordinary really needs looking at.

If you shave, small red bumps can result from ingrown hairs.(Ingrown hairs ANYWHERE are a major annoyance.) Also, I've heard that it's not impossible to get pimples in the pubic area. Still, it's advisable to be examined by a doctor and get definite answers.
