Can Genital Herpes Be Spread Using A Hand On The Penis
Genital warts: Warts are caused by strains of the HPV, but skin warts are caused by a different strain than genital warts.

Is it possible to transmit herpes simplex virus 1 on to your genital area, specifically on the labia majora, by accidentally touching yourself ?
Genital Warts: Warts are contagious. The virus is easily spread by physical contact or even contact with sheets or towels. However, transmitting common warts from the hands to the genitals isn't likely at all since genital warts are a different strain from other warts, and transmitting genital warts to the hands is just as unlikely. All warts should be treated to avoid transmission, especially genital warts. ...Read more

No: Herpes is spread by a virus. Generally, viruses require some mode of transmission (saliva, blood, etc..). Assuming the underwear is clean, and there are no injuries to you (open wounds, cuts, etc..), you should not have to worry about getting genital herpes in this situation. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

Labial ulcer: The potential for other STD lesions is present but far less common.

Can you spread your own genital herpes by touching genitals with underwear on and then touching face?
Little or no risk: People with longstanding herpes are immune to new infections with the same virus type (HSV1 or HSV2). Therefore, auto-inoculation (self infection of a new body site) almost never happens. For the same reason, couples in which both have herpes do not "ping pong" the infection back and forth. So no worries; this won't happen. ...Read more
Can genital warts be spreaded by wasing with a towel during and out break. If so how long does the virus live on the towel?
Possibly 1 week. : A 1997 study in the journal of infectious disease demonstrated that hpv-16 showed 100%, 50%, and 30% of infectivity when dehydrated on a surface for 1, 3, and 7 days, respectively, at room temperature. But the real-world transmissibility of genital hpv is when present on fomites such as towels, underwear, or gloves in unknown. I would be conservative, and take precautions to avoid trasmission. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Nope: Herpes doesn't behave this way at all. Also, herpes lesions never remain unchanged for days at a time. They get inflamed, maximally in 2-3 days, then heal, always gone within 2 weeks. Herpes often recurs, but never more often than once a month, and between outbreaks there is nothing visible and no pain, discomfort, or anything else. Whatever you have, it isn't herpes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can HPV be spread through indirect contact? For example, if my finger touches a genital wart and I lick my finger with my tongue, can I get mouth wart
No risk: This is one of at least 3 questions you have asked about HPV, all of them suggesting you are unnecessarily worried about catching it. You are at risk of HPV only by sex with infected partners. Nobody can say the risk is zero with this sort of contact, but it is far too low to worry about. If you are sexually active, even with only one partner, that's how you'll get HPV someday. No other way. ...Read more
