Yeast vaginitis?: Genital warts can appear (or reappear) months or years after catching HPV. Howver, warts don't itch; if you have warts, it's not the only problem.

See your doctor and take it from there. Good luck! ...Read more

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

The: The description you give is not consistent with herpes, but it is still possible. Visit your doctor for an examination. If the area in question has resolved, you can request a herpes blood test that checks for antibodies for herpes type 1 & 2. If you are positive for type 2 then you have been exposed to genital herpes at some point. If the rash is still present then your doctor may be able to tell you if it is herpes or not by his/her clinical exam.
Good luck. ...Read more

Other lesions such as a wart, skin tag, infections, or even a type of tumor can grow in this region. I recommend getting it evaluated by a dermatologist, especially if it is painful, because it's possible it could be infected. ...Read more
