hello!Related your concern you should know that usually warts are caused by HPV. HPV doesn't have cure but only need to treat with medication (condyline) or cryotherapy or electrocauter. Regards.

Detailed Answer:
Hello! Thank you writing in healthcaremagic.
I have been through your question.
Related your concern you should know that warts look like dense, rounded nodules , of different colors, in some cases they have the same color as the skin, and sometimes they can be pinker, yellowish, darker or light brown and usually don't itch.

Furthermore I need some data related you sexual history because you should know that other types cause warts on the hands, feet, and face, and these types of HPV do not cause genital wart, but genital warts may also appear on the lips, mouth, tongue, or throat of a person who has had oral sexual contact with an infected person.
It is known that are more than 100 different types of HPV, and only some cause genital warts which are contagious and are transmitted by sexual contact with an infected partner.

Please to define better the diagnosis I need as well an attached picture.
I hope my answer helps you.
Feel free to ask me again.

Detailed Answer:
hello! Thank you writing back in healthcaremagic.
Warts are contagious from person to person and from one area of the body to another on the same person as you have.
There are approximately 60 types of HPV that cause warts, each preferring a specific bodily location.
Some types of HPV cause warts to grow on the skin, others cause them to grow inside the mouth, while still others cause them to grow on the genital and rectal areas. However, most can be active anywhere on the body.

I suggest, based on your history (have the warts for a long time with no sexual contact) to meet an Infectious diseases specialist or dermatologist to take a proper treatment for each type of them and to do some examination in order to exclude some pathologies( that can cause immunosuppression).

I hope my answer helps you. Feel free to ask me further.

Hello my physician recently advised after a consult I have irritated keratosis with mild squamous atypia what does this mean and she advised cryotherapy. I have been addressing this issue to physicians since 6-7 years ago and finally a new physician was able to tell me what this was. I am a little worried she told me within the next 20 years it could turn into skin cancer. Is this true
