If I have genital warts and I go ice swimming, will my genital warts fall off due to the freezing temperature of the water?

If I have genital warts and I go ice swimming, will my genital warts fall off due to the freezing temperature of the water?

Probably not.: I'm not sure that I would recommend this course of action even if it did work, as icy cold water exposure is asking for a lot of trouble (frostbite, anyone?). That being said, genital warts will not freeze off at 32 deg F, or even 30 deg F (below freezing). Freeze spray using liquid coolant used by dermatologists cools the surface to below 0 deg F; water will never be that cold (but ice will be). ...Read more

If I got a cut on my clitoris and the water flowed from my HPV warts on my mons pubis to my clitoris during my shower, will I get warts on my clitoris?

If I got a cut on my clitoris and the water flowed from my HPV warts on my mons pubis to my clitoris during my shower, will I get warts on my clitoris?

Maybe not warts: Once genital warts appear, new ones can appear anywhere in the genital area. But not from water flowing; it happens naturally, as the virus spreads over the skin, or during normal genital touching e.g. after toilet. Warts near the clitoris are no more serious than any others. Warts usually don't show up on the mons -- maybe you have follliculitis or something else. See doctor to confirm diagnosis. ...Read more

I have a plantar wart. Can I take a bath and put my feet in the water or will it spread?

It may spread...: ...But not because of a bath or water. You may bathe and clean your feet as you normally would, without fear of causing the warts to spread. They do, however, occasionally spread of their own accord. Only treatment to remove the warts will stop them from spreading. ...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
