    Hi,

    I had a genital wart (which I got treated by cryotherapy), and now I just happened to find a small wart on my neck! What on earth is going on!?

    I had a full STI test, everything came negative and now I'm worried. Are warts (non-genital) a part of adult life? I'm 22 btw.

    Any advice/help/anecdotes would be appreciated.

    warts are caused by HPVs, there are many different ones that have different predilections for different areas of your body. And funnily enough they're contagious, so if you go rubbing a wart then rubbing your face you may end up with a wart on your face.

    All the information you need to know is right here. It wasn't caused by a strain of HPV that is sexual transmissible so don't worry about it.
