Viral infection: These are warts caused by a virus. This is common this day and age and is a sexually transmitted disease. They may be very visible or not visible at all. Guardisil is an immunization used to prevent certain sero types of the virus so as to help prevent cervical cancer. It is given to young females and some give it to males. The wart is caused by the human papilloma virus.
