How long can HPV survive outside the body?

HPV: Not long. If you are concerned about transmission of this virus by other than direct person to person contact this is very very unlikely. If you are using a dildo, however, and it is in direct contact with an hpv infected individual and then immediately used by another, this has the potential to transmit the virus. ...Read more

How long do HPV 1 and 4 live outside the body?

Still...: Hpv particles are here and there around in their waiting mode with no living activity. Their action to replicate begins when they attach to right receptors on the surface of host cells so to enter host cells where they start hijacking host cells to replicate, resulting in making host cells sick and dead if.... So, they have no life outside the body, but waiting and in its latency. ...Read more

How long does HPV last outside the body on an object?

How long does HPV last outside the body on an object?

Possibly 1 week. : A 1997 study in the journal of infectious disease demonstrated that hpv-16 showed 100%, 50%, and 30% of infectivity when dehydrated on a surface for 1, 3, and 7 days, respectively, at room temperature. But the real-world transmissibility of genital hpv is when present on fomites such as towels, underwear, or gloves in unknown. I would be conservative, and take precautions to avoid transmission. ...Read more

I have sjogrens syndrome & today was diagnosed with HPV will it take my body longer to heal itself from hpv? What can i do to build up my immune syste

Yes: Sjogren's makes most wounds heal slower anyway. Since HPV often affects mucous membranes in the mouth, intestines and reproductive organs and Sjgroen's makes these drier than normal is would be more difficult to claer the HPV. Remember HPV has many forms and some stay in your system indefinitely once you have them but the symptoms will flare up from time-to-time. ...Read more

May be forever...: HPV virus is not a viable agent, but a specially structured DNA particle, called HPV virion and may exist everywhere in its inactive phase.

Remember: We are exposed to all germs everywhere, but not become sick by the blessing of 2 natural barriers - skin & immunity... ...Read more

How long min/hr can HPV be transmittable on clothing, soap, toilet seat, etc? I know virus exists forever outside body but when can virus not transmit

How long min/hr can HPV be transmittable on clothing, soap, toilet seat, etc? I know virus exists forever outside body but when can virus not transmit

No transmission risk: HPV has never been known to have been transmitted by clothing, toilet seats, or the other things you mention. Soap would kill it instantly. And I'm not at all sure the virus "exists forever outside the body". Where did you hear that? If you don't have sex, you cannot catch or transmit the genital HPV types. Don't worry about it. ...Read more
