Hello. Thank you for posting.

The virus that causes genital warts can spread even after warts have been treated and are no longer visible. Genital warts are caused by some types of the human papillomavirus (HPV) and a person can catch HPV from genital-to-genital contact. Even when warts have been treated, the virus may still be present in the skin. So, it’s still possible to spread and/or catch the virus after the warts are gone.

According to Prevention: To help prevent genital warts, use a condom. If you don't have HPV, but your sexual partner does, or if you have a new sexual partner and aren't sure, using a condom offers some protection against contracting the virus. Use a condom even if no symptoms are apparent; the virus can still be present. Experts recommend latex rather than animal-membrane condoms.
