Can I pass non-wart genital HPV to my baby through cuddling, kissing his cheeks, changing his diapers with unclean hands, etc?

Possible scar: Hpv is transmitted sexually but should not have anything to do with the described scenario. Part of the question is missing but sounds like the area that was cut looks strange. Aside from a wound that has not healed which is not likely she may have formed a keloid which is a very raised scar and a cosmetic problem only. An examination by medical provider can easily determine if this is the case. ...Read more

Is giving your child gardasil HPV vaccine kind of like giving them permission to have sex?

Is giving your child gardasil HPV vaccine kind of like giving them permission to have sex?

No: Hpv is only one of more than a dozen illnesses that can be transmitted through intercourse & actually only covers 9 of dozens of strains of that virus, the ones associated with cancer of genital warts. Some may want to think of that way to hide from the reality of sex. Males & females can acquire the germ & keep it in their system for decades before it returns to cause cancer. ...Read more

My infant is showing signs of dehydration. When do I call the doctor? My baby has been ill and is having fewer wet diapers than normal. I’ve tried to give her pedialyte, but she isn’t taking much of it. At what point do I need to call her pediatrician?

Call Dr. Now: Signs of dehydration include fewer wet diapers, tears and saliva that is thicker than usual. Infants may become dehydrated in just a few hours. It sounds like you've done the basics-it's time to discuss the details with your doctor. It will be much easier to treat the problem early. Good luck. ...Read more

Is it possible your unborn child can get hpv?

No worries: HPV is not transmitted to unborn babies. Once in a while a baby is infected during delivery if mom has HPV, but is quite rare even though genital HPV infections are common.

How can I know if my baby obtained HPV (warts) from the day he was delivered? Symptoms please

How can I know if my baby obtained HPV (warts) from the day he was delivered? Symptoms please

Timing: Acquisition of genital or vocal warts from delivery are time limited. Transfer of the virus may be silent & would be more likely to occur if there were active genital warts at delivery. If they appear within 2 years of birth the delivery is considered the more likely source. Any emergence after 2-3 years of age will trigger a child sexual abuse investigation in my state. ...Read more

This is not an absolute guarantee against infection, but does help substantially. The long-term plan should by hpv vaccination for men & women. ...Read more
