Confusing statement: The only skin that can sustain genital warts are genital: peri-anal, labial, penile & scrotal. In infants they rarely affect the vocal cords, in immune deficient they can appear at the lip margin. Finger warts are a totally different strain that does not affect the genitals.The primary infection usually clears in 2 yrs when you become immune.Strains can hibernate forever but rarely re-emerge.
