Can HPV cause itching?


Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection usually does not cause itching. HPV is a sexually transmitted infection that can cause warts on the skin or mucous membranes of the body, including the genitals, anus, mouth, or throat. These warts may be raised or flat, and they can cause discomfort, but they typically do not cause itching.

Itching in the genital area can be caused by other factors, such as a yeast infection, bacterial vaginosis, or an allergic reaction to condoms or other products. If you are experiencing itching or other symptoms, it is important to see a healthcare provider for proper diagnosis and treatment.
