Possible: The primary infection by any strain of HPV, including the wart strains will clear from the body within the first 2 yrs or so. Removing obvious warts can decrease the chance of spread but if other tissues are already involved they may appear there in that 1st time frame. Once infected there is a small chance they could re-appear years later in some patients.
