Hello, this is Dr Helen, a UK doctor.

From your symptoms it sounds like you may have an infection affecting the vagina and the surrounding area.

Warts around the vaginal area can be frozen off but this needs to be done by a doctor. The kind of wart cream you buy over the counter won't work as this is only designed for warts on the hands.
The blisters you describe could be related to the herpes virus (the same virus that causes cold sores) and if this is the case you may need some antiviral medications for them.

It is essential you have a full check up for this where swabs can be taken to ascertain exactly what the infection is and the correct treatment started.

Your GP can do this for you or, if you prefer, you can go your local sexual health clinic instead.

This website will help you find your nearest one:

All the best.
