Please Help.

So, I had some normal warts on my body in places such as knees and fingers. While shaving they have spread to down below. I don't think it can be HPV because I am not sexually active, and they're on the area where I shave, not where usual HPV warts are. I didn't know where to post this, but I need help! I've tried aldara which didn't really help. I've had them burned off before which was extremely uncomfortable. But they come back and there's more. I still have a some random warts on my finger, knee, and elbow. Should I make sure I get them removed to prevent spreading? It's really frustrating and I just need some advice on what I can do. Even if the answer is nothing. Someone just please help?

Hi there!
Warts are fingerlike projections caused by Human Papilloma virus. Warts tend to occur in warm, moist places, like small cuts or scratches on the fingers, hands, and feet. Warts are usually painless and go way on their own in 3-6 months. It is common for warts to reappear after treatment .Picking at a wart and touching the wart and then another part of your body can spread warts to other parts of the body. You will need top see an experienced dermatologist and get them removed. It can be done via chemical or physical destruction of the warts, cryosurgery, laser etc.Do keep us posted.
Take care and good luck!
