can the strain of genital warts cause warts on your face or just in your mouth? how likely is it to get hpv on my face after one dose of guardisil?

Both places

Warts
Herpes virus, 2 in this case can usually causes lesions to appear where the virus first entered the body. They live inside the nerves. If you have oral sex, you can get them in the mouth. I'll leave it to your imagination how facial warts, or Herpes lesions, come about!! This a family rated network!

Can I get genital warts on my face?

No

Warts
Genital warts are only on the genitals. The terms often used are to describe the location... for example plantar warts are called that because they are on the plantar surface of the foot. If they are located elsewhere, they can't be "PLANTAR" warts.

any home remedy recommendation for warts in the face and neck?

No

There are no home-made remedies for warts, but there are always some folk tales out there about what might work. The OTC wart-removing acids do work on small warts on the face and neck, but one has to be very careful and have a steady hand, so not to get acid on the good skin and cause irritation and discoloration. So, it may be best to have a dermatologist or primary doctor treat the warts.

I have lots of pimples and acne on my face with some warts also I want to have a clear face what should I do?

Acne

Open-uri20130330-16014-1u89zl4
don't wash your face with body soap. also don't use alcohol or comedogenic products on your face. try to find an acne wash system like neutrogena or something with benzoyl peroxide. following low sodium diet might help too, since acne-causing bacteria like salt. you can try to prevent spreading bacteria onto your face by not touching your face, washing your phone, etc.

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

Could this mean I am at risk for cervical cancer because I have flat warts on my face?

Different HPV

Head-face
The strains of HPV that cause cancer of the cervix are different from the flat-wart type you find elsewhere on the body. Your risk is neither greater nor less if you have flat warts on your face. And the question is moot, since hopefully you are sensible enough to get checked on a regular basis for premalignancy of the cervix. Best wishes.

What are the reasons & solutions for growing up with tiny moles & warts on the face? Advice pls :)

Normal variant

Everyone grows moles and skin tags on their skin during their lifetime - some only a few, others many, and most somewhere in between. When people asked one of my professors what caused them, he would say, "The Lord." 30 years later I still don't have a better answer than that. They can be removed by a dermatologist if they bother you.

A man with warts all over his body, face and arms walked by in a crowd. His arms might have came in contact with my kids' bare arms/face. Are my kids at risk?

Unlikely

Warts
HPV virus causes papillomas , they are not that virulent , causl contact is not usual way of transmission , appear to need more constant , repeated contact , may ven need some break in the integrity ( abrasion ) at implantation , ' the person ' you describe may not be warts Don't worry your kid will not get them , teach good hygiene , frequent hand washing , foe girl consider vaccination .
