Different strains. There are lots of different hpv strains. The ones that are sexually transmitted, which cause cervical and penile cancer, don't cause warts on someone's hand. There are strains that aren't STDs which do cause warts on the hand and are transmitted just through skin to skin contact. They are all very contagious.
Direct contact. Hpv is acquired by direct contact with the virus from somebody else who also has it.
What's the odds of passing hand warts from mother to new born baby. How do I get tested to find out which strain I have?
Possible. If child is breast fed, some protection is there.
Duct tape. Duct tape applied continuously -changed every day. One study in military recruit plantar warts had a 66% success rate.
Warts. Wait for immune system to kick in and the warts will likely go away. Try a medication prescribed by a dermatologist.
Warts are a Virus. Yes. The hpv virus infects skin...Not just certain body parts. It is commonly spread by the hands....
Warts. Warts are caused by the human papilloma virus and can be spread from one part of the body to another. A doctor should evaluate any genital lesion that someone notices.
Yes. Warts can spread to any body part.
Duct tape. Keeping them covered with duct tape all of the time for 3-4 weeks has been recommended by some. There are also some otc products like compound w.
Unlikely. Genital warts has its own sub types, of hpv virus, over 100 to 150 sub types, territorial and have their own fetish, it is unlikely to infect genitals but rarely possible.
Possible. It is possible.
Several options. Warts, which are caused by a form of the hpv virus, can be a difficult and frustrating problem. You can try an over-the-counter wart remover (e.g.: compound w or duofilm). If this doesn't work see a dermatologist. They could be frozen with liquid nitrogen (cryotherapy), treated with a strong acid, or removed surgically. There are also injectable medications that can be used in stubborn cases.
Warts. Each night before going to bed soak a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar, apply it to the wart and then hold it in place with a band-aid. Leave it on all night, or if you like, 24 hours a day but change the soaked cotton and band-aid each evening for a week. The wart will swell and may throb as it reacts with the vinegar and then start to turn black within the first two days and in two weeks gone.
Nothing will help my hand warts. Surgery, freezing, currently immiquimod. They are large and I get comments on them, sadly. Help?
Be vigilant. Don't say that...you just ned a doctor who will be patient with you and treat them frequently. I have patients in my practice just like you. I use liquid nitrogen in a styrofoam cup and a large Q-tip. You have to do it weekly or bi-weekly....but I guaranty they will eventually blister up and fall off.
