What other primary symptoms might be seen in 19yo white fem who has HPV that has caused genital warts/vaginal, flat& raised w/sour vag odor? Advice?

Warts on the outside (vulva) can itch sometimes. Warts in the vaginal and on the cervix are unknown to the women unless the warts are bigger and/or get irritated by sex. Warts shouldn't cause an odor, so an odor may be due to other reasons. ...Read more

HPV: Absolutely. This virus is easily transmissible by any direct skin to skin or skin to mucous membrane contact. But if you are having unprotected sex (and this is a form of that, one need not have penetration), that is not the only std you have to worry about.

I am experiencing what looks like skin tags at the bottom opening of my vagina.Are genital warts able to be cured? Are hpv and genital warts the same?

Warts and HPV: First, skin tags are a normal anatomic variant. Vestibular papillomatosis also is another normal and commonly at the vaginal opening. Google both for photos; if still uncertain, see a doctor to confirm, but maybe not warts. All warts (genital or anywhere else) are caused by HPV, but most HPV infections don't result in warts. Warts are easily treated and cured, although HPV itself often persists. ...Read more

I have a small wart on bottom portion of my vagina it don't bother me,the question is could it be something other then genital warts,I haven't had sex?

There are plenty of other possible causes of genital area bumps, e.g. skin tags. But best to see a doctor or clinic to be certain it's not a wart: better safe than sorry. Good luck! ...Read more
