Whats the best way to get rid of warts on hands? Should I be concernd about them spreadin elsewhere?

Doctor freezes them. Warts on the hands, or on most other parts of the body, can be frozen off by a primary care doctor or a dermatologist. Usually, it takes 3 visits or so. After each freezing part of the wart dies, until finally all the remaining warty skin is gone. Painting over-the-counter wart removal acids on ones warts is a lot more work than having a doctor freeze them. Read more...

See a dermatologist. Best chance for cure with dermatologist but may be difficult. Unless you have defective immunity, they probably will not spread much (but sometimes do). There is no single best treatment. If you wait long enough, could be 5 years, they will probably go away with no scars. Keeping tape (any kind) on warts all day every day for a few weeks sometimes seems to help but is irritating. Read more...

What happens if I have a hand wart can I give it to my partner if we have sex?

Probably not. Of the 100+ HPV types, most tend to establish infections only in certain body areas. HPV 1, the main cause of hand warts, rarely infects the genital area. So probably there is no risk. Having said that, maybe you shouldn't push your luck. Until the wart has cleared up, it may be best to not use that hand for sexual stimulation of your partner. Read more...
