2. Genital Warts: Genital warts are areas that generally erupt around the genitals and anus. These are caused by certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV). Symptoms of genital warts include skin-colored or whitish bumps that present on the vulva, vagina, 5

GENITALIA AND RECTUMcervix, penis, scrotal area, or penis. Warts may occur singularly, or they may occur in multiples. I do not believe the patient described in the SOAP note provided is infected with genital warts because the bumps that she describes are painless. Genital warts are often itchy and cause a burning sensation around the vaginal area or anus (Cocchio, Baldovin, Bertoncello, Buja, Furlan, Saia, & Baldo, 2017).3. Genital Herpes: Many times, women to do not even realize that they have genital herpes because often there are no outbreaks or symptoms that would be indicative of genital herpes. Genital herpes are fluid-filled blisters that present on the labia, vagina, or penis. The first outbreak of symptoms associated with genital herpes occurs typically around two weeks after first being exposed to the virus. After symptoms begin, the infected individual may experience tingling, burning, swollen glands, headache or flu-like symptoms (Ball et al., 2015). Based on the information provided by the patient, I do not believe that the described symptoms are consistent with genital herpes. ReferencesBall, J. W., Dains, J. E., Flynn, J. A., Solomon, B.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
