Can you catch HPV from borrowing a bathing suit from an infected person?

Can you catch HPV from borrowing a bathing suit from an infected person?

Unlikely? Possibly?: Hpv is presumed to survive a short time outside the infected person, so if a swimsuit comes off an infected person and goes immediately onto a second person, it makes sense that the second person can catch the hpv. If a swimsuit goes in the washer/dryer before the second person wears it, the second person is safe. If a swimsuit isn't washed but just hung up to dry, possibly hpv lives hours? Days? ...Read more

Is it possible to have passed HPV to my daughter while bathing/changing her?

Is it possible to have passed HPV to my daughter while bathing/changing her?

Unlikely: There seems to be a component of active skin to skin contact with the body parts susceptible for HPV transfer. You are unlikely to have your hands contaminated with virus and contact her genital skin to make the transfer. However, mothers can pass the virus to a baby during a vaginal delivery if she is shedding virus. It can lay dormant up to 2 years before showing up as genital or vocal cord warts. ...Read more

Can you catch HPV from smoking after someone who has the infection?

Doubtful: There appears to be a requirement for skin to skin contact and abrasive force before this tissue surface germ can affix itself and trigger an infection. Saliva also has some anti-infective capabilities. If a person has an altered immune system from HIV or chemo, they may be at risk. Otherwise I doubt it would be an issue. ...Read more
