I was told skin tags caused by HPV are spreadable. If so, how can I tell if its a natural tag or by hpv? I know it isn't a wart, so why can it spread?

No visible warts now but I may be hpv positive. does masturbation spread the virus?Can I masturbate in between getting vaccine?

HPV infection: I'm not sure how you would know you "may be HPV positive" if you don't have warts. If you are the partner of someone with genital HPV (e.g. an abnormal pap smear), you may or may not be infected. But if you see no skin abnormalities, you needn't worry at all. Everyone gets HPV, usually several times; by age 48, for sure you have had it, and also too old for vaccine. Masturbation causes no harm. ...Read more

I am male. Can you spread HPV if the pubic area (the part with the hair and the wart) is covered with latex but the penis itself is left uncovered?

Probably yes: First, genital warts are uncommon in the pubic area, so maybe it was something else. However, people with HPV often are infected at sites other than visible warts, and if the pubic lesion IS a wart, there's a good chance the penile skin also is infected and could transmit the virus. ...Read more

Hye. Dose hpv genital wart spread through washing underwaer toghather with infected person with just cold water and soup ?? Plz explain and why ??

Here are some...: For viral particles to gain access to body surface, there should be a compatible surface with cells and environment for the virus to harbor and replicate. So, the circumstance your described should pose almost zero odd to contract the virus. If contracted, personal humoral immune defense will try to fend off such invasion. All in all, for average healthy person, one should be okay to survive... ...Read more
