Herpes and Genital Warts Answer A8478
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

Your concern is regarding whether warts give any odor or not. Genital warts themselves do not produce any odor. But if they become secondarily infected with bacteria or ulcerate then they may bleed, itch and produce a discharge with an unpleasant odor.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are advised to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
