Yes: To confirm a diagnosis of herpes, see your doctor.
HMMM: Depends on your perspective. Herpes is usually more painful when you get an outbreak, but HPV can cause cancer and or genital warts that can be so extensive that you have to undergo extensive laser surgery that can leave you permanently scarred. Cancer of course can result in needing painful surgeries, biopsies, and death. So they both are pretty bad. HPV at least has a vaccine available.See 1 more doctor answer
All different: Shaving bumps (folliculitis): Shaved areas only (obviosly), red bumps, some pimple-like, often a hair visible in the center. Warts are painless, non itchy bumps, often firm or quite hard. Herpes: initial red bump becoming blister then open sore over a few days, then healing with scabs. Initial herpes and warts usually on genitals per se, e.g. labia minor, vaginal opening. But see MD if uncertain.

Yes: Close skin to skin contact without any sexual intent can cause the transmission of these infections.
Is the vangina supposed to be bumpy on the inside?? It's been bugging me I do have hpv anal but these don't look like herpes what could it be??
Likely normal: Inside of vagina can normally feel "bumpy". Your gynecologist will likely confirm.
No: Hpv is human papilloma virus (there are many different strains). Some strains of hpv cause genital warts or cervical cancer. Herpes simplex type 1 and type 2 viruses cause herpes infections, which usually are sores, such as sores on the genitals or sores on the lips. Herpes sores are painful clusters of tiny blisters, and they heal up only to return some time later.See 1 more doctor answer
Depends: You could be infected with both germs. They are both transmitted sexually and some infected persons can carry several infections at the same time. Some are relatively asymptomatic for extended periods.
I'm not sure if I have hpv or herpes. The bumps don't look like either, and I've been tested for herpes before. Also never got gardasil.?
Herpes vs. HPV: Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) and Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) are viral infections that cause skin lesions. Herpes can appear on the mouth as cold sores (HSV1) or around genitals (HSV2). HPV can occur anywhere on the body. Herpes can cause ulcerated, black-ish lesions while HPV causes smooth round warts (see images). HPV does have a vaccine that (Gardasil) protects against some (not all) HPV strains.See 2 more doctor answers
I gave oral sex to a woman and I am worried about contracting herpes, hpv, warts or somthin. I heard to get something oral is rare is this true?
Mostly true: Oral sex can be considered safe sex. It's not completely free of STD risk, but low risk for all STDs and zero for some. Altogether a lot safer than unprotected vaginal or anal sex. Risk is especially low for cunnilingus (oral-vaginal). Oral warts and herpes in particular are rare from oral sex. No need for testing if no symptoms (sores of lips or tongue, sore throat) in next 1-2 weeks.
I am wanting the truth about can you find out if you have herpes by blood tests and can herpes be mistaken for HPV symptoms I have been told that you can't find out for sure if you have herpes by a blood tests. And also that some of the symptoms may be yo
