You skin could be fighting the virus,
it usually causes itching. Also, if
you are on aldara, that will do it to

You could be getting new ones, you
could be fighting the virus. IT means
SOMETHING is going on :-)

The itching is a strange thing. My
gut always told me new ones were

warts do not itch unless you are using
the Aldara sounds like herpes not warts
I would get a culture and a blood test
to be sure

warts can to itch before you're using
aldera obviously a few of us have had
that experience

It's not herpes or at least I seriously
doubt it is. Aldara as a treatment can
cause itching and there have been
reports of itching in general when
warts are coming or going or just
present in general.

Heck yeah, mine itched for months
before I found out what was wrong.
Even when I don't have warts in the
area it still itches. Just a symptom
of the virus for some people. Use
benedryl cream, it helps alot.

tested negative for Herpes. To everyone
else thanks for the giving me PROPER

I also have hpv. I notice my certain
part of my scrotum area, get irratated
while having sex. Not sure how to say
it......but when her wetness touches
the area, that area gets a lil stingy.

does anything else help for the itch
while using Aldera? Does the benadryl
cream help that discomfort as well?

I haven't had any warts yet, as far as
I know I only have the cancer-causing
kind, but I COULD have the genital
warts b/c I got SEVERE itching for
about 2 weeks in duration. I
eventually couldn't even sleep, but I
had NO lesions there whatsoever. I got
tested for herpes and that was
negative. So, I started using
Cortizone creme. It worked wonders!

Yes, benedryl also helps if you get
irritated from aldara. I carry a tube
in my purse, my life-saver!

i have lil white like bug bites pop up
on me like on my rectum area and on my
inner thighs and they itch really bad i
have been dignosed with low risk HPV is
this a symptom??? someone plz help if
you have had the same symptoms

4/14/2004 10:47:53 PM - Becky
Umm... I've read that itching MAY be a
symptom of some HPV-strain, but it is
also not a necessary symptom. It is
possible that an imbalance in genital
flora has lead to yeast-like or other
itching occurence. Hope this helps.
