Can a mother give her child a bath or change their diaper if she has hpv?

Not like genital warts, but the kind that causes cancer of the cervix caused? They told me to change many mothers and their children with HPV Desenex cream, etc. safe for diaper rash and children. Is this truth.

yes, it’s true. I don’t know of anyone anywhere who would try to deter a mom of changing her baby’s diaper because she has hpv.

HPV is an STD. It has nothing to do with what a parent can and can’t do to take care of their child. If you had herpes you’d still be able to take care of your kid.

of course she can, a mom with HIV can too.

Yes, my dear.

You can’t actually transmit the hpv to the baby by changing the diper or giving him a bath. If you are unsure of it, just clean your hands before you go about doing this.

“Transmission of genital warts is only possible by close contact with objects that have been exposed to the virus.”

The mother can change the baby, but NOT the father if he has genital warts. Just in the last 2 weeks my grand daughter who is 2 has now got 2 anio warts on her bottom. My daughter took her to the doctor’s and the doctor called Children’s aid even though she told them it can be transmitted by changing a diaper and applying cream, with unwashed hands! My daughter and the babies father had to go through interviews with police, take the baby to a sexual assault doctor, who said the baby was not assaulted and go to a dermatoligist for treatment. The sexual assault doctor has wrote a book on how this can be spread without sexual activity. My daughter wants to sue the other doctors for not telling them that this can happen. Never mind the stress they all just went through. Their 4 year old boy has to be checked out for warts too. Spread the word, and don’t give your kid warts. By the way, my daughter had a fleet (sp) were they burn off the pre cancerous cells off the cervix, between the 4 year old and the 2 year old.Even though she doesn’t have genital warts she is a carrier and has to have regular pap smears for cancer. Anio warts can be given to baby during pregnancy, without having a vaginal birth! The father thought he got rid of his with burning and expensive creams and they just came back a month ago?
