Genital Warts
I have gental warts (anal) and have been using Aldara cream prescribed by my doctor for a month now. They are still there but I believe thay can take up to 16 weeks to clear. I have experienced extreme itchiness in this area as well at blistering which is apparently an affect from the cream. The blisters are sensitive and sore and they come and go - I've had three so far.

What could I use for the itching and blistering, if anything?

As you say, this is one of the side effects of the cream. It may be that you need to stop the cream for a while. Check this with your doctor.
