This sounds: Like hemorrhoids, either internal and/or external and does not sound like genital warts at all. Caffeine causes the itching and makes you constipated, having to push and thus hemorrhoid symptoms. Eliminate all caffeine and alcohol and drink 80-100 oz fluids per day. See a colorectal surgeon if this does not resolve. ...Read more

Had a couple genital warts frozen, is itching around the vulva days after normal after this procedure?

Had a couple genital warts frozen, is itching around the vulva days after normal after this procedure?

Normal and expected: Wart treatments work by destroying wart tissue and/or causing inflammation. Both of these naturally are irritating. So if it's the wart-treated areas that are itching, it's normal. If you have more widespread vulvar itching, however, it could be something else, such as a yeast infection. In that case, check back with the doctor or clinic treating your genital warts. ...Read more

After my genital warts disappeared, I still feel an itch in my pubic area. Is the itch caused by my immune response to remnants of the virus?

After my genital warts disappeared, I still feel an itch in my pubic area. Is the itch caused by my immune response to remnants of the virus?

Was your doctor certain of the diagnosis? Warts usually don't itch, even in areas where the immune system helped clear them up. Perhaps a yeast infection? Best to check with the doctor or clinic where your warts were treated. Good luck! ...Read more
