HPV Vaccine
I have facial warts that my dermatologist says is due to low immunity or stress. However, is there a link between this and HPV being the cause of cervical cancer.

Even though I have these warts, am I still able to get the vaccine? I have also only had 1 partner so SDI'S in not an issue.

Facial warts are caused by a different strain of the virus to that causing cervical cancer, so this will not affect your having the vaccine.
