If you have warts on your finger can you pass them to your vagina?
First, let’s discuss what warts are. Warts are skin growths. They can vary in color–from gray to brown to pink–and size–anywhere from a small pebble size to an eraser.
Warts are caused by viruses in the human papillomavirus (HPV) family. Yep, that HPV. Here’s the thing though, the HPV viruses that cause warts on your fingers are different strains than the HPV viruses that cause warts on your genitals.
So, it would be very unlikely that you could transfer a wart from your foot or finger to your vagina.
But, that doesn’t mean that warts on your finger aren’t contagious. The virus from one wart can go to other spots on your body or even to another person’s body. You can infect yourself again by touching the wart and then touching another part of your body. And if you share razors, towels or other personal items with a friend, you can transfer warts between the two of you.
And of course you know how genital warts are spread–through sex. Be safe when you have sex.
Both genital and common warts can be treated with medication. If you think you have either, check in with a doctor for treatment.
