Is this VP? Genital Warts?

Edited , 4 users are following.

I had a yeast infection that was itchy and not going to lie, I scratched. I also had sex 3 days after the yeast infection resolved. Now I have these little almost papules in line on my labia minor. They are slightly itchy and there are 2 papules that are a little tender to the touch. No smell. They are soft to the touch and move back and forth when I rub them. I usually have some small bumps that I woul consider VP normally and nothing this prominent and didn't know if I irritated it from scratching or are something else. I will be going to the walk in clinic soon.

    I'm pretty sure this is VP, the best way to differentiate HPV from benign vestibular papules is to follow the papule, from the bottom (base) of the papule, up (tip). As you may observe, these papules have that characteristic, if it was HPV, the growth would be irregular and the distribution would be asymmetrical.

    Best wishes!!

    Hi Catnappy,

    Agree with Dr Fernandez; these are VP.

    At the risk of sounding like a broken record, have you been vaccinated with Gardasil (HPV vax)? If you have, then genital warts would be a very unlikely diagnosis.
