This may seem a strange question, but can a person get HPV from just shaking hands with someone who has it? (or other non sexual contact)
Not genital strain: There are in excess of 100 strains of HPV with more than a dozen involved with genital transfer. The strains tend to be specific to a tissue area, so genital strains stay there (or transfer to some oral tissues). There are also strains that cause common regular skin warts, which could pass from skin to skin contact like a handshake.You don't pass genital strains with a handshake. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Unlikely: Masturbation is most likely to cause both pleasure & some feelings of guilt, depending a lot on a kids culture. It does not cause neurological symptoms. If a kid finds that they are experiencing some tremor, or fine continuous movements in their hands, they should have their physician look into the process. I'd be looking into an overactive thyroid or other issue as the culprit. ...Read more

I have pain in my right elbow. It is slightly painful when I fully extend it and is a sharp pain when I am gripping something or shaking hands.
Poss. epicondylitis: Hi! Depending on where exactly the elbow hurts and whether it hurts when you twist hand (a door knob, for ex.) clockwise or counterclockwise you may have lateral or medial epicondylitis, aka tennis or golfer's elbow--both "overuse" syndromes. Need to identify and avoid the repetative/causative action with rest, anti-inflammatoris as initial Tx. If no better or there is redness and swelling see doc ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
After reading about HPV, I have been worried about getting it via holding hands, shaking hands, hugging etc. with friends and all, Shall I be worried?
Not so much: HPV is a family of viruses.Those with the most consequence are the strains associated with sexual transmission.Although there is times when these strains will shed & contaminate various surfaces it appears the STI strains pass only with direct skin to skin contact along with a mechanical or abrasive event. These strains are also site specific, tending to live only on specific genital skin. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it likly to transfur viruses and bacteria via sex than any other contact, such as shaking hands?
Are there concerns when shaking hands with someone who has scabs or bandaids on their hands? I was introduced to someone who had cuts/bandaids on hand
Little or no risk: We all have daily contact with other persons' hands -- shaking hands, exchanging money, etc. Many of them have sores, scabs, etc on the hands and mostly you don't know about it. Even without sores, such contact can spread germs like cold viruses and bacteria like staph or strep, Probably no greater risk from this person than anyone else. This is why frequent hand washing is a good health habit. ...Read more
