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?

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

I'm 22 female. Have suffered wit genital warts for 4yrs : (doc freezes external ones but there's 1 by my clitoris, how can I treat these internal ones?

Aldara (imiquimod) or laser: I would consult your doc for an eval to see which rx option is best for you at this time. It is difficult to tell without an examination.

Also, would consider hpv vaccines series if u have not done so. Good luck. ...Read more

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor. If you are sexually active you could have warts.
Do get HIV vaccine.

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?

Atypical location: The pubic area (basically the hairy area in front of the genitals) is not a common site for genital warts. Are you itching exactly where the warts were? 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
