Hi. I got HPV about 1 year ago, was treated 9 months later, and the warts I had went away. I know that the infection usually flushes itself out of your system (or at least suppresses it to a non-contagious state) within 1-2 years after infection. I'm hoping this is the case with me, but I have a question about it, if anyone knows the answer.
I have 2 warts on my hand. This is obviously a different strain of HPV and did not cause the genital warts. If the strain causing these warts has not flushed out of my system, does that also mean that the strain causing the genital warts has not? Are these two strains totally independt of each other or no? Thanks for anyone who can help.
