Customer Question

I (male) am being treated for genital warts and assume that I have the HPV virus.Assuming that they are cured and one abstains from sexual contact can they still re appear ?.If one resumes sex will this increase the likely hood of them re-appearing even if the partner does not have the infection ?. Will sex with a partner who also has HPV,but no obvious warts cause heightened risk of them re-appearing ?.If hypothetically I still had say one wart remaining would this heighten risk of further infection ?.
