Pink tissue growth protruding out of vagina. Having swelling, itching, pain. HPV removed before. Related?

Hi, I am having a lot of pain and itching right inside my vagina . It felt like it was cracked or chaffed but when I looked at where I felt this I noticed there are pink (skin tag like) tissue growths that protrude out of my vagina. They look very swollen and are very painful and itchy. I used Vagisil and it burned badly. I have previously had high grade HPV but had it removed with the cone procedure. Could this be related? Please help!

Hello there.

Thanks for writing.

Yes, your pink growths are probably genital warts of HPV.

Genital warts are small, cauliflower shaped or flat lesions. They occur on the genital areas including the vagina, cervix, vulva and anus. They are usually painless but they can bleed, itch or have some discharge.
When infected they can even be painful.

Cone procedure or removing warts does not always eliminate the HPV infection as warts can reappear after treatment since the virus may still be present in the body.

So I suggest you to meet your gynecologist at the earliest and get them removed or cauterized to alleviate your pain.

Do not apply any self medication as it can harm you more like the use of vagisil.

Take care.
