Can you get genital warts (HPV) by touching it with your hands?



This is a serious question. I've known I've had HPV (genital warts) for about 4 months and I've done alot of research and the only clear way of contracting it that I've found it throuhg "sexual contact". That helps me NONE. If I have them, and someone touches them with just their hands (not their gentitals) can they contract them? This is a serious question. I know I need to talk to my bf asap about it, I just don't know how to address it. We've been together for about a few months and I'm freaking out because we're trying our hardest to stay away from sex but I can't bring myself to tell him the reason I can't have sex with him. His reason is morals yet he knows I've had several partners. PLEASE, I need to know, I hope this hasn't affected him in any way. I could not stand myself if I gave a great guy this ****-*** STD (as they say even though you don't have to have sex to get it)

:(

Yes, whatever touches it when you are having an outbreak or "shedding" can spread... Make sure to clean hands and everything else asap! Source(s): L
all warts are caused by hpv but there are many different strains of the virus. the strain that causes warts on the hands is a different strain than that which causes genital warts. unless your bf is a virgin, he probably has already been exposed to hpv and I wouldnt worry too much about it, unless you actually have warts down there right now-then he may get them during sex. but hpv does not cause too many problems for men, it is mainly a serious concern for women. they get warts and thats about it, you can develop cancer
If you have genital warts like the kind that show in the genital area since you said they are not cancerous it makes me believe that this is the kind that you have. It can be spread through touching it just depends on what kind of touching. Shedding and other things can help this disease spread without notice. such as said here at http://yourstdhelp.com/hpv.html...
you should probably tell him if anything. and you know he probably has some form too. and inst telling you unfortunately thats just the way it seems to go.
