How is herpes zoster virus transmitted? Is it safe to live in the same place as the person infected?
You already have it!: The reason that you likely already have the herpes zoster virus is that it is the same thing as the chickenpox virus (varicella). When we get chicken pox the virus that causes it never really leaves our bodies. It stays in a part of the nerve near the spine. After many years, your immunity wanes and the virus may become active again, typically just along the distribution of one spinal nerve. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

There are some forms of sexual activity in which individuals are more prone to bleeding, in which case these bleeding sites present a rapid route for viral entry. ...Read more

How is oral HPV transmitted to to mouth. And the female is HPV cervical dysplasia and performs just oral sex one time is it still transmitted.
Oral Sex: In this ongoing quest to give you information about a virus that is ambiguous and difficult to describe and test for, the female in this situation is at so much more risk than the male. The male, if he has not cleared the hpv he got as a younger person, is much more likely to be passing this on to the female than the other way around. ...Read more

Extremely unlikely: Oral HPV isn't all that rare, but a lot less common than genital HPV. More important, even in the busiest STD clinics, we virtually never see patients with genital (e.g. penile) warts whose only possible exposures were oral sex.

If your partner has acquired it, the same rules apply. You do not pass this back and forth like a strep throat. ...Read more
What happens if HPV is transferred from mom to child through birth, can the child infect anyone else with it?
Difficult issue: The data does show some forms (genital warts) emerging up to 2-3 years after a vaginal birth to an infected mom. Since subsequent transmission to someone else would require close physical contact, and the strains are specific to their sites, such would be unexpected unless the kid was sexually abused. The warts themselves gradually clear or are removed long before puberty. ...Read more
Oral HPV? : Oral contact with an individual with HPV could be transferred with subsequent genital contact from your mouth to your genital region (wiping after urination, for example).

Does HPV only stay in genital area or can be transferred to our garments/underwear? Silly question but had to ask, curious about it actually. Thanks!
Highly unlikely: HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI). HPV is so common that nearly all sexually active men and women get it at some point in their lives. It is most commonly spread during vaginal or anal sex, and can be transmitted even when an infected person has no signs or symptoms. HPV may live on undergarments for a short period of time, but is unlikely to be transmitted in this way. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Received annalingus/rimming. Now have itchy bum. STI? Have HPV in cervix and bf has done unprotected oral on me. So he has it- Transferred to bum?!
Not HPV: HPV infections don't itch -- typically there are no symptoms at all, except skin bumps (warts) in some HPV infections. Yeast is the main causes of genital and/or anal itching. STDs are possible from analingus but unlikely. Keep the area clean and dry, or maybe try an OTC anti-fungal cream (or vaginal cream if you also have vaginal area itching or irritation). See a doctor if these don't help. ...Read more
Does HPV virus transfer only when the carrier (host)has an infection (CIN)? Where is HPV located?Only inside the vagina/cervix or thighs/skin outside?

While it is obvious it can transfer while visible lesions are present (like warts), it can also be passed periodically if no lesions exist at all.The sites of residence are those preferred by the strain involved.Wart strains are more external while those cancer related strains are more internal. ...Read more
I just noticed a few warts on my palms. Can these transfer to other parts of my body? Would warts on hands be the same strain as genital HPV?
No: HPV is a common virus in nature and has dozens of strains that effect humans, The strains are like families & each has a preferred tissue where it lives/is found.

The warts on your palm may find their way to spread to other regular skin sites. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
