Warts

Patient

Q: So about six months ago I noticed a wart on my knee and got rid of it by freezing it off. a few weeks later another one appeared on the same leg but on my inner thigh. I tried freezing that one off and it didn't work, even after I tried again a month later. It seemed like the second freezing was working but then it started rubbing on my pants and began to itch. Now it looks bigger and red. Can HPV warts grow on your legs? I have had plantars warts before and I sometimes sit crosslegged. Could my plantars warts spread to my legs through contact? How can I get rid of it if it is infected?
