Can Men Spread Hpv Through Fingernails
Yes it could: Hpv is the most common std in the world. In fact, classifying it as an std does not mean that it cannot be transmitted in other ways. For example, skin-to-skin contact could potentially spread the virus. While some hpv infections lead to cancers in both men and women, in most cases hpv will clear up on its own without causing any symptoms, side effects, or problems. Vaccination is recommended.
Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection. There are over 100 different types of HPV that causes warts in different areas of the body. HPV is incredibly common and almost all sexually active men and women get it during their lifetime. Most of the time HPV does not cause any symptoms or complications. However, A limited number of these HPV viruses are pathogenic and if not monitored carefully can be responsible for causing cervical and penile cancer. Some of these viruses have been ...Read more
Can men be treated to get rid of of HPV like women do? How? What treatment should they go through? What needs to be done? Surgery?!
Can happen: The HPV virus has been known to be associated with the development of squamous cancer of the cervix. More recently, HPV has been shown to also be associated with oral squamous cancer. Since the virus is present under the foreskin of the penis and the vaginal area of the cervix, any means by which the virus can enter the oral cavity can induce the squamous cell lesion. Cunilingus is one method.
When my gyno nurse informed me that I ha ve hpv, she told me I wouldn't be able to spread it to a partner through sexual relations. How is that?
HPV: You are right to wonder about this advice. But, I surely would need more information. What were your tests and what were their specific results? Where and how did they discover you have hpv? Do you know which strain you have? What treatments did they do or recommend? But, hpv is transmitted skin to skin and from infected body fluids.
Yep: Possible but not probable. Would have to have almost immediate contact from an infected person.
Yes: All types of hpv are transmitted by skin to skin contact. There are about 100 different types of hpv. About 50 are genitally transmitted.
Can hpv be spread onto your actual butt cheeks, not just anus? If so can you spread it through the toilet, please please clarify.
Site specific: The various strains of genital HPV are site specific. In simple terms, they only go where they like to live & in this case it is the genital skin. There appears to be a direct skin to skin contact for these strains to transfer, so toilet seat transfer is a myth.See 1 more doctor answer
HPV THROUGH COTACT: If by contact you mean nonsexual contact than the answer is no but it can spread easily through sexual contact if one of the sexual partner has lesions called condylomata or genital warts. It is preventable by immunising boys and girls starting at age 11.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes, but...: Nobody knows the degree of risk because there are too many unknowns, such as: does the other person have the virus, how much virus does she have, what exactly is oral sex for that couple, how many total minutes of exposure per episode, how many episodes, how much total virus gets into the guy's mouth, etc., etc... So, in life, if a person is a "worrier", he has to play it safe and not do stuff.
Unlikely, but...: 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 when present on fomites such as towels, underwear, or gloves is unknown. I would be conservative, and take precautions to avoid trasmission.
Little or no risk: HPV is not spread through the air or in the environment, e.g. touching surfaces, in toilets, by towels, etc. Almost all cases are by sex, virgins not at risk. However, there is slight risk from some kinds of sex without penetration, especially oral sex; and maybe rare cases by hand-genital contact, fingiering, etc. Get vaccinated to prevent the 9 most common and most dangerous HPV types.
Different strains: The hpv that causes warts on skin are a different strain than what causes hpv in the mouth. Like humans are made up of many different strains, with different skin, eye and hair color, different shapes. So you can have warts on your hands and hpv in your mouth, but they aren't likely spread from one to the other.
How plausible is it for HPV to be spread through non-sexual or proxy contact (one not washing hands properly someone touching door handle after them)?
Not impossible but..: By far, genital hpv is more commonly and more easily transmitted via sex. Plus, certain strains have a higher affinity for certain types of skin cells. Infection requires contact between skin cells and live virus. The virus must attach to cell receptors and get into a cell. Direct contact, microtrauma to skin and high viral load all favor infection. Sex is better than door knobs for transmission.
Cervical High Risk HPV caught early, but how do I know it hasn't spread through my vagina or elsewhere?
Germ behavior: There are hundreds of strains of HPV and each has carved out it's own favorite territory. Genital strains of HPV stay there. The wart strains like the outer tissue of the labia or penile shaft, while the strains associated with cervical cancer like that tissue. It does not enter your blood to go to other parts of the body.
