• Anyone who has any kind of sexual activity involving genital contact with an infected person can get HPV—-intercourse isn’t necessary.
• Many people who may have HPV may not show any signs or symptoms, so they can pass the virus on without even knowing it.
HPV is easily transmitted.
Although HPVs are usually transmitted sexually, doctors cannot say for certain when infection occurred
There is no evidence that contaminated toilet seats, doorknobs, towels, soaps, swimming pools or hot tubs, can transmit HPV. However, some unexplained cases of HPV lesions do occur and one should never rule out the possibility that an HPV infection may have been caught in a non-sexual event.
HPV types that cause hand and common warts generally do not cause warts in the genital area. The exception is the rare occurrence of warts in the genital area in young children that are due to these “non-genital” HPV types. Likewise, genital HPV types are only very rarely found in lesions outside the genital area. For instance, HPV 31 lesions have been described in the conjunctiva and subungal areas. Therefore, autoinoculation of HPV from one area to another does not occur except in the rarest of circumstances.
Whether one can increase the risk of infecting the cervix by autoinoculation from external warts, or vice versa, is not known, but most individuals who have HPV lesions in one area of the lower genital tract probably already have HPV in other genital tract areas. Therefore, one should not be concerned about “spreading” HPV from one area to another.

someone is staying with me she told me two weeks ago that she has hpv. she has little kids. her young daughter has some weird looking red bumps that come and go on her neck and feet and arms. I want to know if the lady is contagious to me and my family. I dont want to catch this stuff. Can you let me know if we can catch this or not? Thanks. She didn’t go into details of what kind or anything, but she is misinformed because she told me that men dont carry it. But looking online I see that this info is not true. Me and my husband have young children and i’m so worried that we will catch it because she cooks meals and all. Pls let me know. Thanks so much!!!
