Is one of the symptoms of Genital warts itchiness and can sores develop anywhere on the body?

by Rachel on November 14, 2011

she contacted genital warts 16 years ago without incident for 16 years. Then we met and make wonderful love together. She started complaining about itchiness and got a cold sore on her lip. That’s when I found out about the genital warts—six months into our relationship. Is their a connection

Cold sores are herpes, not genital warts. If she is itching genitally, she may have contracted it there, too. She needs to see her gynecologist for assessment.

The rash, in severe cases, can be associated with herpes. This phenomenon is more commonly referred to as shingles and needs to be treated by a doctor. Otherwise she may just have dry skin or allergies, but it’s best to see a doc to be sure.

Genital warts and a cold sore are two different things. It may just be a regular cold sore. The itchiness can come from anything, maybe a yeast infection. She can go to the doctor and get it checked out. But the cold sore could have been a virus she contracted as a child, which most do, which give off cold sores. I personally don’t believe a cold sore or genital wart have anything in common, two totally different things.

Genital warts would not manifest itself by a cold sore on the lips. It is only in the genital area. It sounds more like Herpes to me. Herpes is the STD that can spread to the mouth, and usually does. I can’t imagine how she would go 16 years without an outbreak, though. I really don’t think your girl is being completely honest with you.

Its not herp otherwise it wouldn’t itch! If you feel like there are things moving in your skin that is uncomfortable it gets worse at night time and leaves red bumps on your body that don’t pop most likely you got scabies. Its a mite that burrows in you layers of skin there is a 24 hour treatment for it or just go to a store and get rid gel and run it all over your body neck down in sleep with it on when you wake up wash it off hope that helps
