User avatar Hello,HPV viruses cause warts inluding the common plane warts and the sexually transmitted condylomata,ie genital warts.Whie the earlier one can get transmitted easily the genital wart to occur on the face is most unlikely.What probably you have are flat warts,and not related to genital warts.Best wishes.
