well if you have these warts of your feet it doesnt neccessarily mean you have them in your private area. you can get them in different places. for example if a guy has em in his mouth(cold sores) and performs oral sex on you, then you can get it down there. but to be safe go to the doc.

Planter warts on your feet, no that has nothing to do with HPV or your genitals at all. It means you stepped on a spore and it it attached itself to your foot and grew into a wart.

Yes You can get rid of them yourself, its painful and gross so you should just go to a doctor to have them removed.

If you want to remove them yourself take a pair of pointed tweezers you kinda have to dig into the wart and pull out the little specks that look like dirt or seeds. If you pull all of them out they go away, if you miss one little one they come back all over again. It hurts and its gross so you should have a doctor freeze them off for you.

All warts any where on your body are of one of the over 100 HPV types. There are 40 HPV types that affect the genital area…and are most commonly transmitted during vaginal and anal sex…and can be transmitted during hand to genital sex play or oral sex.

Genital HPV types most often stay in the genital area. Warts that affect the hand, feet, legs tend to stay in these area.

Plantar warts are non-genital HPV types. Yes, you have a HPV on your feet. These HPV types have nothing to do with genital HPV types. Plantar warts do go away they can be pretty persistent…you can try over the counter wart removers for plantar warts…they may help in the regression of the warts.

I have had personal experience with plantar warts on my big toe…they were painful…I did use an over the counter med…but this was years ago…the warts went away…

I have also have personal experience with HPV of the vaginal cuff and of the vulva.
