Apologies I am.
But could someone explain the difference?
Herpes and genital warts are similar in that they are both viral infections and are both essentially non-curable (although they can be treated symtomatically i.e. removing the wart).
They differ in that herpes is caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV) and genital warts by the human papilloma virus (HPV). There are many subtypes of both virus and of course a form of HPV is responsible for causing cervical and anal cancer. Their clinical presentation also differs with HSV resulting in a coldsore like lesion in the genitals and HPV, as would be expected, in warts.
It is worth noting that HPV is transmittable even if their are no clinical symptoms and after treatment.
In response to Geetaw's original post I think the answer is 'how long is a piece of string?' Fingers crossed for you they respond nicely to treatment (which is essentially the same as for warts on other parts of the body). The weekend is probably a bit soon though.
