what does hpv look like on women?

Depends: The few strains that produce genital warts can be seen when active.These can be tiny bubble-like outgrowths that eventually look like small cauliflowers. Most strains produce no findings that would be obvious to a lay person, while they actively shed virus.Even when the wart strains clear, they can shed virus and pass it to their sexual contacts off and on for years.
