Warts on the hands and warts on the genital are usually different strains.

It''s best to wash hands after touching any infected or genital area of another person.

okay, first of all, the people who have said yes to this question need to get their facts straight. oral HPV is rare, but possible, but usually only occurrs in people who have problems with their immune system or who have HIV/AIDS. you cannot spread genital HPV to your hands. the strains of HPV that cause genital warts are not the same as the ones that cause warts elsewhere.

Why in the world any idiot would answer this question when they don''t know what the heck they are talking about is beyond me.

The answer to your question appears in the following excerpt taken from www.berkshiresurgical.com/colon_rectal_cancer_education/anal_warts.htm
Anal warts are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV), which is usually transmitted through sexual contact but not necessarily through anal intercourse. The same type of warts may occur on the penis, scrotum, vagina or labia. The time from exposure to the virus and growth of the warts is commonly from one to six months, but it can be significantly longer. During that time the virus remains in the tissues but is inactive. There are many types of human papilloma virus some cause warts on the hands and feet and others cause genital and anal warts. The (HPV) which causes warts on hands and feet does not cause genital warts, and genital wars do not spread to the hands and feet.

Hi there. The Answer to this question is Yes it can. I am 22 year''s old and 7 months ago I developed one wart on my right hand. This one wart spread into 12 warts on the same hand. I went to my family doctor 17 times to get them burned out with liquid nitrogen. I only lost 2. My family doctor said that I could spread the virus to other parts of my body. 1 Month ago I started get a burning sensation in my genital area and 1 week later I developed warts on my penis. I still am a vrigin and have neverever had any sexual relations with anyone. I am really upset because I told my family doctor when I only had that One wart to cut it out. He refused to and now I'll pay the price for my whole life. My doctor feels really bad for me but there's nothing he or I could do. I get my hand warts burned out every week and I'am using Aldara on my warts in the genital area. My doctor said that I technically don't have the gential wart virus, I have the common wart virus. I told him it doesn't really matter which virus I have. I have warts in my genital area therefore their genital warts to me. My doctor told me that eventualy My body will cure and reject the virus that I currently have, but according to my research. There is absolutely no cure for this virus. You may lose your warts but the virus will live just as long as you will. There are a lot of things in life that I'll miss out on because of this, I just hope I can find a nice girl who will accept me and my warts.
Thank's

I think I know what you meant by it spreading if he touches it...so I will rephrase the question and would like an answer as well: if my boyfriend touches the infected area, will he get the virus on his hand...and then if he touched his penis, or mouth...would it spread like that?
