Is HPV dangerous?

I was diagnosed with a yeast infection. I took the one pill of fluconazole and it seemed to have worked for about a day, then my symptoms came back: vaginal itching, burning and swelling around the vaginal opening. I let my dr know it wasn t working, and he prescribed me a cream, terconazole cream to use for 7 days. Along with my symptoms mentioned, I noticed bump like nodules near my vaginal opening, which seem to be symmetrical on both sides. I looked it up and they look exactly like squamous papillomatosis, which makes sense because I was told at my last annual pap that I had hpv. Are these harmful? And when should my yeast infection go away?
