Hello, I have known I've had HPV for approximately 4 years. I noticed a small wart on my penis, and had it frozen off. Over the past 4 years, I've had recurrences pretty frequently on my penis, but usually only 1-2 very small warts that I would have frozen off by my doctor.
Then, about 1 year ago, I noticed a bump in my anus that grew into a lot of warts in the perianal area.I've had persistent anal itching for years, since I was 18 that has persisted and become worse over the years, a very annoying condition, and I'm wondering if that spread the few minor warts I had on my penis to my anal area?
I've gone through 2 surgeries to have the burned off, they've come back after each surgery, and now I'm trying Aldara.
So, with that background I have a few questions:
1) How did the warts transfer to my anus? Since HPV is a virus, can it recur in other places like the anus, even though I've never had any sort of gay or anal sex?
2) I have had unprotected sex with women over the past 2 years (I know, it's awful, and I've told those partners that I have HPV). But if I don't have any warts on my penis, but do on my anus, is there still a high risk for passing the virus from vaginal intercourse?
3) Could my anal itching/scratching have caused the warts to transfer there? Could that be the cause of the warts coming back over and over again after they've been removed?
I appreciate the help, thank you
