Hi and welcome.

What do you want to ask?

Please tell in detail and upload an image if you have one.

There is no blood test for HPV

HPV must be diagnosed by sampling.

So for example, a pap smear.

Or, if there is a wart on the outside of the body, this is usually easily diagnosed by inspection.

To see which wart virus it is, it must be sent to the lab.

The above post will not let me edit.

So I was going to say that most people fight off the wart virus daily, as it is in the enviornment and we are exposed by others.

Why some are infected actively as opposed to others is not well understood.

Find me as needed.
