Can you spread herpes from one part of your own body to another?

Can you spread herpes from one part of your own body to another?

Very unlikely: Transfer of herpes from one part of the body to another is called auto-inoculation. It sometimes occurs during someone's first infection with the virus, but after a few months, the immune system prevents new infections with the same virus, anywhere on the body. Use common sense hygiene and avoid rubbing your eyes during an outbreak of oral or genital herpes. Otherwise don't worry about it. ...Read more

Is it possible to spread HPV from one part of the body to another (self-inoculation)?

Is it possible to spread HPV from one part of the body to another (self-inoculation)?

Yes: The virus can be self-inoculated. Think about warts on your hands and feet - they often "spread" - this is all just auto-inoculation. Also, there can be intermediates in transmission. For instance, if you have genital warts and have sex and then oral sex after, the virus can be transmitted to your mouth and vocal cords. Moms with active HPV can also transmit virus to baby during childbirth. ...Read more

Yes, it may ...: Warm and moist skin & mucosa are the breeding bed for HPV to replicate if it gains access into squamous cell of skin or the lining cell of mucosa by micro-injury.

Would applying liquid bandaid over a plantar wart keep it from spreading to other parts of my body and other to people? Thank you.

Not really...: You are just temporarily covering it and it can actually sometime irritate the skin. It can still spread internally and with the skin irritated, you risk spreading it to others as well. Warts are viruses. ...Read more

Can the strain of genital warts cause warts on your face or just in your mouth? How likely is it to get HPV on my face after one dose of guardisil?

There are many...: ...Strains of the virus (hpv) that causes warts. Generally speaking, the strains that cause genital warts are not found in facial warts, although that has never been proven, to my knowledge. Gardisil protects against 4 of the strains of hpv that cause genital warts, so even multiple doses of gardisil are unlikely to have any effect on facial warts, one way or the other. ...Read more

How to get rid of the fat over my face. I have lost weight from the body but it is not disappearing from my face.

Facial Fat: If you have achieved ideal body weight then the fat distribution in the face can be altered by liposuction. However, this should be performed judiciously in a conservative fashion. Excessive fat removal from the face can result in an aged and un-natural appearance. Muscles and bone structure can give the appearance of a fat face. You need a thorough evaluation of your facial structure! ...Read more
