There are many types of Human Papillomavirus (HPV) and the ones that most often cause genital warts are called HPV-6 and HPV-11. These are more contagious and spreads easier than other kinds of warts, spreading through skin-to-skin contact. It may spread to other nearby parts of the body and may be passed from person to person by sexual activity.
