We know that the human papilloma virus (HPV) can cause cervical cancer and may put us at risk for other medical conditions. Some strains of this virus may cause genital warts, one of the most common types of sexually transmitted infections .
Genital warts are soft growths that look like a small cauliflower or flat gray or flesh-colored spots that appear on and around the genitals, including the penis, vulva, urethra, vagina, cervix and anus. They can also appear on the lips, mouth, tongue and throat. There are normally no other symptoms with genital warts but some people may experience increased vaginal discharge, genital itching or vaginal bleeding during or after sex.

Like everyone else, people with herpes can get yeast infections, bacterial infections, molluscum contagiousum, scabies, genital warts, gonorrhea, Chlamydia and urinary tract infections. Here's what to look for when determining whether or not your breakouts/ skin irritations are a result of herpes or another infection: A cheesy, thick white discharge that's itchy or irritating in a woman may be a yeast infection.
