In brief: Warts

Warts are all caused by human papilloma virus, but different strains cause different types of warts.
[see chart] if your husband has common warts on his hand, theoretically you could get them on your vagina, but they would not be the genital wart strain.

In brief: WART ON HAND/VAGINA

Even though theoretically it is possible to infect your genitalia with a finger wart.
But in reality the viruses causing genital warts are caused by human papilloma virusof a different strain than the finger warts .Most non genital warts are not dangerous and self limiting and go away without treatment and are not precancerous like genital warts but if in doubt cosult your dermatologist.
