Can you get genital warts from a common wart on the hand?

My boyfriend touched me "down there" and he had a wart on his hand and it could have touched me. Can that common wart cause me to get genital warts?

no.

there are over 130 different types of hpv that commonly infect humans. the types that cause warts on the hands and feet, aren't an issue in the genital area.

tell your bf to get his wart removed by his doctor or use an otc wart remover so it's gone :)
