No, in general the only place that genital warts can be transferred to is your throat which is pretty rare.

Hi below as some facts that will help u understand more about this virus, hope this information and links helps answer your question. Ciao ?
HPV FACTS
HPV is passed from person to person, often indirectly. HPV on the skin may be passed to another person when that person touches the wart. It may take several months for HPV to appear if transmission occurs.
Warts are contagious, excreting large loads of HPV viral particles. If a person with a wart on a finger were to touch a genital area in a manner vigorous enough to slightly break the skin, this might transmit the virus to that area

Sadly, most areas of skin that possess HPV infection have no outward signs. Thus, the infection may be transmitted to the uninfected area of a partner without any knowledge of this fact by either partner. This is the manner in which almost all HPV infections are apparently transmitted. So, practically, if partners choose to have direct skin-to-skin contact between genitalia, then it may be impossible to know if HPV virus is being transmitted or not

Genital warts are caused by human papilloma virus (HPV). They are very contagious and can spread to other parts of the body (such as groins, inner thighs and pubis) or to other person through skin-to-skin contact normally during genital sex, oral or anus. It can also spread through secondary contact for instance through a towel, sharing underwear or like especially if not washed thoroughly..

Since you have genital warts, there is a high possibility that you got it from your sex partner(s). If you only have sex with your partner, then most likely they are infected too. It would be advisable to get them to go for check up. To prevent spreading to others, practice sex safe.

TREATMENT
Aldara is quite a new kind of drug that use to remove genital warts. Responses to the cream vary from person to person. It is common to experience redness, swelling, itching, flaking or scabbing at or around the application area during the treatment. Treatment with Aldara cream may also result in swelling, small open sores and drainage. Itching and/ burning is included.
You normally need to apply the cream until the genital warts disappear or up to 16 weeks. New warts may develop during the Aldara treatment. It cannot cure hpv though and so far there is no cure for hpv. Your genital warts may be removed but hpv stays in your body. When you body immune system is not able to fight off the hpv, new warts will recur.

Aldara cream may not remove all genital warts, if it does not work, you need to seek other treatment.
