Do genital warts hurt? if they are at vestibule?

I have these very small red bumps around my vestibule. They are just a few of them and they aren't symmetrically distributed. I wouldn't even notice them if they weren't so painful to touch, which makes sex impossible.

I have been having this for over a year now non-stop and I have been to several doctors. Their opinions are controversial, the one says "Yes, they are warts. Here is some Aldara cream put it on your vestibule" the other says "Thank God you didn't use Aldara, it could cause you problems and wouldn't have helped at all as these are normal bumps and not warts and warts are not painful".

The thing is, they actually hurt and I cant just ignore them and think they are normal. Also I didn't have these bumps before. My questions are can warts be painful to touch, and if these bumps are not warts then what they may be?

Please help me!! Thank you in advance!!!!!

Hello,
Warts are not painful to touch. If these bumps are painful then boils and herpes sores should be ruled out. Treatment includes antibiotics and do not touch or pick them up. You can however apply topical antibiotic creams like Neosporin or Bactroban. If the symptoms persist then you should get oral antibiotics prescribed from a doctor or get herpes sores ruled out.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
