Ok I had a yeast infection and had sex with my long term partner. Unprotected. I have on bump on my labia majora that is raised and somewhat cauliflower shaped. I also have enlarge lymph nodes on both sides of my vagina along with vaginal discharge. I have found one other bump but it is flat, white, and soft. I am getting a herpes blood test soon. I just wanted an opinion to see if this could be hpv.
Hi, welcome to the ehealth forum and I am glad to help you.
You seem concerned by the possibility of cauliflower shaped bump on your labia majora being due to HPV infection.
Genital warts, caused by some types of HPV (human papillomavirus), can appear on the skin anywhere in the genital area as white or flesh-coloured, smooth, small bumps, or larger, fleshy, cauliflower-like lumps. There are more than 100 different subtypes of HPV, and around 30 of them specifically affect the genitals.As the clinical profile matches that of warts, there is strong possibility of HPV infection in your case leading to genital warts.
There is no treatment that can completely eliminate genital warts once a person has been infected. But there are a lot of options such as chemical cautery, surgical excision etc.
You can consult your personal physician for definitive diagnosis and furher management as the same is not possible online.
Hope this helps. Take care.
