Can HPV cause fungal infections?


Human papillomavirus (HPV) is a virus that can cause different types of infections in humans, including genital warts and some types of cancer. While HPV itself does not cause fungal infections, individuals with weakened immune systems may be more susceptible to both HPV infections and fungal infections.

Fungal infections, such as candidiasis or thrush, are caused by different types of fungi and are typically not related to HPV. However, some symptoms of HPV infections, such as genital itching and irritation, can sometimes be mistaken for a fungal infection. It is important to seek medical attention if you are experiencing any symptoms to properly diagnose and treat the underlying condition.
