I have a few warts on my leg and a barely noticeable wart on my penis. My doctor said that they look like HPV. He advised me to apply antifungal and steroid cream and wear condoms. The cream was not very effective even after four days. Can it be something other than HPV? Will condoms prevent it from spreading it to a partner? Will it get transmitted by kissing?

Thank you for your reply. I have attached some photos of the growth on my penis and leg, as I would like your opinion on them. The growth on my leg seems to aggravate by white vinegar, which returns to normal after an hour. I also wanted to ask if is it possible to have healthy children after HPV? I have read that HPV 6 and 11 cause warts, and usually, the immune system destroys the virus over time. Is it true? And is it possible to remove the tattoo on my leg?
