Hi,
     How are you? Genital warts (or Condyloma, Condylomata acuminata, or venereal warts, also anal wart or anogenital wart) is a highly contagious sexually transmitted infection caused by some sub-types of human papillomavirus (HPV). It is spread through direct skin-to-skin contact during oral, genital, or anal sex with an infected partner. Genital warts are the most easily recognized sign of genital HPV infection.

Genital pimples can be a symptom of sexually transmitted disease, and any kind of fluid-filled eruptions on the skin in that area should be considered in that light if unprotected sex has taken place. Genital pimples should not be confused with genital warts. They may resemble pimples, but that is where all similarity ends. Genital pimples can occur due to herpes zoster, syphilis etc. Blocked hair follicles in the pubic region will result in pimples just as they would anywhere else on the body, and routine hygiene is all that is called for in such cases.

Hope this information helps.
Best.
