In brief: Identifying HPV

Vulvar & vaginal warts (hpv) can appear similar to other skin lesions and are contagious via direct skin contact.
As such, suspicious skin lesions should be evaluated by a physician who can offer tests, treatment, & counseling, as needed.

They may look very simple but hpv looks more like a grouping of tiny fluid filled blisters that open and crust whereas pimples are filled with pus.
However this is an oversimplification and your doctor may be the best person to make this diagnosis, .
