Genital wart vs Pimple : What is the difference?

Genital wart is a type of skin growth caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). Genital warts are small, fleshy bumps that can appear on the genital area, in the groin, on the thighs, and around the anus.1

Pimples, on the other hand, are inflamed spots on skin caused by accumulation of oil, dead skin cells, or pimple causing-bacteria. And at times, they can also be painful to the touch.2 Unlike genital warts, they can occur anywhere on the body and can be treated with over-the-counter medications.2
