I just found out I have HPV. Does that mean that my 1 year old has it too? I found my first wart several weeks ago.

Hard to say: At least with the wart strains you have visible signs that you have it. Babies who deliver vaginally can acquire the virus during birth and have it show up as genital or vocal cord warts that would show up within 2 yrs of birth. In most cases the mother has warts at delivery. Shedding of virus happens most then & might after the warts clear but not often. Some actually have a c-section to avoid expos Read more

What does a wart on the hand look like when it first starts to form?

Small discolored bum: A wart is a virus that gets into the skin and grows outward. It might appear as a discolored bump which will become raised in time. There are sometimes balack spots in the center.

If the wart is in an area where there are skin lines the lines will go around the wart. If it is a callous the lines go directly through it.
A wart also hurts if squeezed side to side. Read more

What to do if I have been with my bf for almost 2years. In the past month or so he broke out in genital warts for the first time. Does this mean he cheate?

Not for sure.: Once cells are invaded by HPV, a latency (quiet) period of months to years may occur, during which there is no evidence of infection.
Generally, about two-thirds of people who have sexual contact with a partner who has genital warts develop them within three months Read more

Can genital warts appear for the first time 5 years after contracting hpv?

Yes: They can be format in your body for a very long time. If you are young your body might clear the infection without you knowing you have it. If it does not clear, the warts can appear at any time, many years later. It is often a problem on a faithful marriage if the infection was caught beforehand Read more

Does oral HPV cause warts first then cancer? Or a sore then cancer? Or once you get infected you get cancer?

Vaccination: Oral HPV usually does not cause warts, though it can. Vast majority of the people clear the virus and none the worse for it. Only a small minority get cancer.
You are young enough for vaccination and should ask your doctor for HPV vaccination.

I have a wart like spot on the back of my wrist, it is very red and sore. It first appeared 6 months ago. Is it a wart.

I have a wart like spot on the back of my wrist, it is very red and sore. It first appeared 6 months ago. Is it a wart.

In such a case it's…: Best to have a doc examine the lesion. May be a simple wart, that can be frozen off, but might also be an early skin cancer from sun damage. So in-person inspection is very important to prevent nasty consequences if ignored. Be ready to tell doc when it appeared, if it's grown, if it hurts, if it bleeds, if it itches. Good history helps nail the diagnosis. Read more

I have warts on genital groin and it bleed and itch sometimes could it be syphillis or hpv? I had one first and now there's more on the same area that

Doubt warts, see MD: The groin usually means where the thigh meets the abdomen. That's an unusual location for warts, and warts don't bleed or itch. So probably it's something else. (But HPV cause sall warts, so if you have warts, it's HPV.) Syphilis is much more rare and probably unlikely. Stop trying to guess or to figure it out on this or any other forum. See a doctor to learn what you have Good luck! Read more

I have wart under my foot for past one week and I started applying duo film. First coat the skin went now puse started coming. And the wart has not gon?

I have wart under my foot for past one week and I started applying duo film. First coat the skin went now puse started coming. And the wart has not gon?

Get the wart out.: Many time experts have a difficult identifying correctly identifying a wart. Warts can be easily mistaken for other skin conditions found on the foot, especially the bottom surface. Many times the wart will disappear after a treatment has caused it to become infected. So wait and see what the results will be. Stop with the duo film. Soak your foot in water and see a doctor if pus continues. Read more

No big deal: Congratulations on meeting a guy who has distinguished himself serving humankind. Everybody has met a few of the dozens of common strains of the wart virus. You and your physician can manage it. You will be using barrier protection anyway. I wish you both the best. Read more

My daughter has been getting tiny wart looking bumps first on her foot that went away then on her thigh now on her elbow, what could they possibly be?

My daughter has been getting tiny wart looking bumps first on her foot that went away then on her thigh now on her elbow, what could they possibly be?

Molluscum...: Molluscum contagiosum is a viral infection that causes little pearly bumps on the skin. They are harmless and painless and usually go away on their own (could take a few years). Another possibility is that they are truly warts. It doesn't sound urgent, but it'd be good to have her doc take a look at them just to be sure. Read more

I have a spot on the palm of my hand. At first I thought it could be a bite/wart but it looks full of yellow puss. What is it and how can I get rid?

I have a spot on the palm of my hand. At first I thought it could be a bite/wart but it looks full of yellow puss. What is it and how can I get rid?

Small infection: Maybe you got poked by something? Maybe with a little splinter underneath the skin? If have multiple on palms as well as other areas of skin, call doc for eval asap as it could mean systemic illness such as gonorrhea etc. If just only one, get a clean needle, clean area with rubbing alcohol and lancet/open it to allow draining of the puss. Then keep clean, dry should do it. Consult doc. Good luck. Read more

Warts: Warts are small, usually painless growths on the skin caused by a virus called human papillomavirus (hpv). Most, but not all, are generally harmless.

What causes warts?

What causes warts?

Skin virus: Warts are caused by a slow-growing skin virus. They are contagious (although not as much as a cold), so if someone with a wart on their foot walks barefoot on the ground and you walk in the same place, you can get them. If you think you have one, have your Dr. Take a look. Read more
