Besides low-risk strains of HPV & secondary stage of syphilis, are there any other possible causes for genital warts?

In brief: Here are some...

Genital wart is specific for HPV-infected skin lesions.
Known to us, one with one kind of STD has higher likelihood to have other kinds of STD coming along. Specific for HPV, many of the HPV-infected may remain asymptomatic and in 2-3 years, they become clear if no reinfection occurs. More? Ask the treating Doc for detail.
