Expert Q & A Answers About testing for genital warts

How do doctors test for HPV and genital warts?

I have tiny bumps between my anus and vaginal opening that a doctor said are genital warts. I want another opinion with an HPV test, but I don’t know where to go. And also, is an HPV test a culture test like you get for a bacterial infection? My boyfriend and I have been getting things that look like pimples on our stomachs and butts. I’ve been getting them on my legs too...I never get pimples there. What could this be?
