Hand wart ? Is this hpv?

Hello, 2 weekd ago i’ve had protected sex with my partner and the condom broke. Do warts appear on hand also? Or what is this?

That definitely could be a wart. Could it be a genital wart on your hand? Well, that's debatable, and many professionals would say that it is highly unlikely. But, if your hand was involved in foreplay and now there's a wart on it, Things become a little murkier. I myself have had small warts on my hands that looked very similar to my genital warts that made me think otherwise about the experts opinion on how unlikely it would be to have a genital wart on other types of skin. Supposedly, genital warts prefer skin types different from your normal skin. However, since I've had three or four small warts spaced apart in time, I'm not entirely sure what to think. As I say in almost every post, if you have any fear or worry that you just absolutely have to resolve, the only way you will know is by going in and having it biopsied.

I don’t have warts on my genital area and also that wart is on the forearm area not on the palms/hands

Ah, well, it's not a genital wart by any means, then. Looks like a good old fashioned regular wart or skin tag or whatever.
