What are reasons that HPV doesn't spread when sharing food, drinking from same glass etc.? Is it because of the very small amount of virus?

HPV: This virus is transmitted by direct skin to skin contact and will die quickly outside the body. It is conceivable that it could be transmitted by inanimate objects but not generally by an oral route where saliva should destroy the virus. Immediate sharing of a dildo may provide transfer of the virus from person to person. ...Read more

Human Papillomavirus: Can only cause warts in humans. Dogs have their own variant called CPV (canine papillomavirus). If you have pets who regularly drink out of the toilet and also lick family members on the face, you would be wise to remind all household members to put the lid down on the toilet after each use to prevent the dog from using the toilet as a water bowl. ...Read more

This may be a silly question but i drinked after someone who has HPV am I ok? Its was just a sip of their drink.

You should be fine: I am aware of no reports of oral HPV transmitted in the way you describe. It is not a silly question at all. Medicine has done a good job of scaring people about HPV, and a bad job of explaining to people how it is transmitted and prevented. You will be OK. ...Read more

Can you contract HPV from using the same towel? Drinking after someone? Or kissing?

Good Question: Hpv can be potentially be transmitted from kissing, especially french kissing because of contact with the mucosa — the inside lining of your mouth. It can be transmitted through genital sex and oral to genital sex. There is no data about contracting hpv from towels or drinking glasses... I think that is less likely a possibility. ...Read more

I have mild dysplacia and I've been taking HPV shots. I have one more to go. Is there anything I can drink or eat to help it go away?

Boost Immunity: Young women like you almost always get rid of cervical dysplasia on their own. That is why it is no longer recommended by the asccp to start pap smear screening until age 21.
Your own immune system will cure this problem no matter what you eat or drink, but a well-balanced diet and getting enough sleep are a good idea for anyone, including you. ...Read more

Can the HPV virus spread through sharing towels, bed sheets, etc?

Can the HPV virus spread through sharing towels, bed sheets, etc?

But the real-world transmissibility of genital hpv when present on fomites such as towels, underwear, or gloves is unknown. I would be conservative, and take precautions to avoid trasmission. ...Read more

Its a virus: HPV is a virus & in asymptomatic people, it can go unrecognized. Treatment is geared toward the symptoms (genital warts or cervical cancer) when present but not for the virus itself.

Can oral HPV pass from one to another by smoking the same cigarette or drinking from the same straw or glass? I am terryfied!

Hold on now, oral: Hpv, it's incidence, rate of disease among those exposed, clearance rate, are not as well delineated as in the reproductive tract. It is linked with esophageal cancer, which is uncommon, and perhaps other oral and throat cancers, all of which are not that common. It's unlikely these are caused by casual interaction. You are at least 1000x more likely to suffer from smoking. Relax on oral hpv. ...Read more

If someone you know has HPV in there mouth can you get it if you drink from there cups or ate food they made.

Yes, possiblly: Hpv is a viral disease and can be spread by contact or toutching contaminated persons or fomites. How long the virus might live on a fomite like a cup and still be infectious is not known exactly but it should dry out in a few minutes or after washing. Contaminated food would be unlikely. ...Read more
