What to Do When You Have Vulvar Warts?

Published at : 16-12-2019 View : 7184

  Vulvar warts are lumps or bumps that appear on the vulva. They may be raised or flat, individual or many, small or large. Some create a group of bumps that is shaped like a cauliflower. These warts result from infection with the human papillomavirus (HPV). Women who have the virus can pass it on through vaginal, anal, or oral sex.

Symptoms of Vulvar Warts

  Not everyone who has been infected with these strains of HPV will have vulvar warts. Often people who carry the strains have no symptoms.



  The symptoms of vulvar warts include:

   Vulvar warts can be small, large, singular, or in clumps. Warts are usually non-pigmented but sometimes can present in many different colors, such as pink to red to brown, grey, and white. They often appear in groups of 5–15 warts which are 1–5 mm each in diameter. They may resemble cauliflower, and found on moist areas around the genitals and anus, or inside the vagina and the cervix. Other types of genital warts look more like regular warts and are usually on dry skin. Other vulvar warts appear smooth and flat, and some are difficult to even see.

   Vulvar warts do not usually cause pain or discomfort. Sometimes they can be itchy, bleed, or make sex painful.

   Vulvar warts can be both external or internal. External warts appear on people of all genders, such as on the vulva, labia, pubis, glans clitoris, entrance to the urethra, and around the entrance to the anus. Other warts can also be present inside of the body, such as in the cervix, the inner side of the labia, and inside of the anal canal.

Causes of Vulvar Warts

  Warts show up on the skin around your genitals and anus it because they caused by certain types of Human Papillomavirus (HPV). You might’ve heard that some types of HPV can cause cancer, but they’re not the same kinds that give you warts on the vagina. Human Papillomavirus (HPV) can be a tricky Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) to understand. It’s the most common Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD), but most of the time it goes away on its own. Sometimes certain types of high-risk human papillomavirus can develop into cancer if left it untreated and other low-risk types can cause warts on your vulva, vagina, cervix, rectum, or anus.
