I was recently diagnosed with HPV with visible genital warts. I immediatley notified my boyfriend of one year.

I am very worried this is going to ruin our relationship.

i have genital warts...I think i may have them in my mouth...how do I tell???

I really don't know for sure about his but I don't think that the male has anything to worry about. He can carry high risk types but it doesn't do anything to him. If anything he would possibly get genital warts from the low risks strains of the virus. If a male continuously smokes while being infected with HPV, that means all his life, he could get genital warts, lung caner, etc. When you smoke it lowers your immune system, then the virus is most likely able to come out in this situation. So it's best not to smoke if you know you have HPV. If you smoke quit. Start taking vitamins daily. Vitamin E is strongly advised to people with HPV. Hope this info helps.

Yes you can still use tampons with genital warts. If you touch the area with the tampon while inserting it, it should not cause any harmful affects. Hope this information helps!

Very frequently men have some bumps on their penis. There are 3 likely things: hair follicle, penile papule or wart. Generally the pearly penile papules appear on teh head of the penis. If you look closely at pictures of most genital warts you'll notice that they generally come in patches of more than one and have a rough cauliflower like appearance. See post: ('Pearly Penile Papules').

Also there are several microbiotics in the FDA pipeline that do kill viruses such as HPV, HSV and HIV. The test will be do they work out of the lab. Vira-medx is an over the counter microbiotic that kills viruses like HSV on contact and it does work. They are getting very close to effective treatments. Remember there are 100 strains of HSV. On CNN today I saw the 3Ms creme that eliminates genital warts (not just treats but eliminates) can also be used to reduce other tumors and abnormal cell growths. I just wish they would have given the product name.

Its's very common for men to have papules around the head of their penis. These are very commonly self mis-diagnosed as genital warts. I reccomend visiting this link showing a picture of 'pearly penile papules'. Hopefully you'll discover that these are what you're noticing. What are the tiny spots on the head of my penis? Warts can be passed from the mother to the child at birth, but these are mostly commonly laryngeal (throat) warts.

Well... depends on waht kind of tub.. a hot tub that is properly chemically treated would not allow transmission.. a bathtub would be even astronomically unlikely as the virus cant survive outside the body.. And what kind of drainage would you be ta?king about drainage from the surgery? because genital warts dont cause drainage.

First what you should do is go to your doctor and let him tell you if you do have genital warts or not. If not, then I'm sure he/she can prescribe a specific medicaiton to get rid of what you might have.

No. The types of HPV that cause regular warts on the hands, feet, etc. are a totally different type of HPV than the ones that cause genital warts. You cannot transmit them from your hands to your genitals or vice versa.

Your GP has probably never seen a real case of genital warts and only covered it for 5 minutes in med school. Genital warts do not resolve in 2 weeks. This could have been anything, but unlikely that a herpes outbreak could be confused with a wart by a physician, they look nothing alike and herpes is very painfull where warts are not.

Not likely since a cold sore and genital warts are actually two separate viruses.

He cant be tested for it if he doesnt have warts. HPV is not present in your blood it is localized to the exposed tissues. There are no definitive tests for men without symptoms. Most HPV cases display no visible signs. He can have the vinegar test done but that means almost nothing. It may show that he has small white spots that may be genital warts but again most infected men do not get warts.

There is no cure for genital warts. You can treat the symptoms through a variety of treatments offered by your doctor. Improving your health is another way to increase your chances of ridding the symptoms. I'd reccomend taking a multi-vitamin, folic acid supplement, fruit and vegetable intake, excercise and if you smoke quit.

Yes it is possible. You need to ask her specifically what she means. There are 2 types of HPV. Low risk strains and high risk strains. Low risk strains of HPV cause genital warts and the high risk strains can cause cervical cancer or cervical dysplasia in women. Make sure you talk with her about this and find out the proper treatment for you.

No, because if she has genital warts and for some reason touches them, "you never know" Then she could pass the virus on to someone else. no matter if it was just once. Or if she's had oral sex with someone else and didn't know wether he/she had them, that's how she could get them also.

Warts are not lesions. If you have lesions then you have something other than HPV/genital warts.

You will always have the virus with you. Most likely your body will suppress the virus, but you will always be a carrier. Some say that once you have not had an outbreak with genital warts for a year then you can consider yourself not in your "contagious" stage, but you still will carry the virus with you for life. A good example is the chicken pox. You get the virus, you have an outbreak, your body recognizes the virus and suppresses it, and most likely you won't have another outbreak. If you carry some of the high risk strains of HPV that cause cervical cancer you never really know if those are dormit or active. That is why you need to make sure you keep up with your pap smears because if some thing is caught quick it can be treated without having full blown cervical cancer. Hope this helps

No, that is a totally different type of HPV. There are 100 different types but 30 of those types of HPV are sexually transmitted. If you have genital warts then you came into contact with a person with HPV, and you were infected by that virus.

Over the counter wart removers are not FDA approved for the treatment of Genital Warts. http://www.genitalwartsonline.com/overall_results.htm describes the various treatment methods their and the effectiveness of each but is not completely up to date. There was a treatment removed from the market where you could remove your warts at home, but unless you create a sterile field and work with sterile instruments you could be setting yourself up for an infection or worse.

Look in your local phone book. There should be clinics in your area. Most of them are free if you do not have insurance. If they're not free, the cost is very low. I get my treatments done at a local clinic, and it costs absolutely nothing. Anyone in Texas should look for a local UTMB clinic. They're awesome. You can have your doctor prescribe you the aldara cream which visibly reduces genital warts (speaking from experience), and that usually costs around $150 without insurance. To me, that's a fair asking price for something that works so well. It may take several refills before you get rid of the warts though. I hope that helped some. And anyone that reads this, thanks for any input you've contributed to this site. I just found it today, and I think I may be able to live a better life. Thank you all!!

Do you shave? If you do these could be ingrown hairs. Genital warts look like cauliflower, they are usually in patches. See: 'Pictures of Genital Warts'

All warts are caused by the HPV virus. Of the 100+ strains only 30 are sexually transmittable and of those only a few cause genital warts. Some genital warts do not present any signifigant health risk to you or a partner. Other pose a higher risk to females. A bump that resolves itself in a few days is most likely not a genital wart. Herpes or HSV II would be a more likely culprit for this however, this could also be a pimple ingrown hair or a dozen other harmless things.

Yes she can. Even if there is only one wart present the virus is still there. HPV can be contracted even if no warts are present. Only 1% of people with HPV show symptoms of genital warts. She might have high risk strains as well that do not turn into genital warts but can be a cause of cervical cancer in the future if left untreated.

No medication out there can "kill" HPV. HPV is a virus so once a person is infected with it, it will always remain in their body. Most likely the virus will become dormit in the body and hopefully the person will show no futher outbreaks of genital warts. Times where genital warts tend to pop out is when a person's immune system is lowered. Either by being sick, stress, smoking, etc.

My doctor told me that drinking alochol would not affect genital warts. Since they say smoking is not at all good to do if you have HPV then I would think smoking marijuana would be as harmful. Smoking lowers your immune system so that is when genital warts could appear if you are sick, stressed, smoking, etc, while having HPV.

I've heard that laser removal of genital warts works very well but is very expensive. Usually laser removal is used on warts that are very big in size or the warts that are found inside a female that can't be taken care of any other way. I would speak with your doctor to find the best method for you to get ride of the genital warts. Usually the warts go away on there own in 6 to 8 weeks, but most of the time a person does not want to wait that long because of the fact that something is there that usually isn't. Hope this information helps.

Yes. Many infected people never develop symptoms. No one knows for sure when you contagious and when the virus is dormant. Genital warts do resolve by themselves and I'm very concerned with the use of terms like "outbreaks" in this forum. An outbreak, like a rash, would go away by itself but genital warts do not. If you have genital warts removed and they do not reappear, its likely the virus has gone dormant. It may appear years later causing more warts, it may never cause any other visible symptoms. Vinegar or not.. you cant see something that is microscopic without viewing a slice under a microscope. I have seen no data to indicate that "most infected people have MANY strains" of HPV.

Genital warts don't always look like the pictures you might find of them on the web. They start out very small, and may look something like skin tags or bumps. Then, they increase in size. But if you're seeing something that wasn't there before, and it's fleshcolored and bumpy, then it's a good idea to get checked out.

HPV is also known as human papillomavirus. It does cause genital warts but in most cases people never show any symptoms of having HPV. That is why so many people have it and don't know it. It is estimated that 80% of people have HPV. That's 3 out of 4 people! Genital warts can be single or multiple growths or bumps that appear in the genital area. These usually appear as soft, moist, pink or red swellings. They can be raised or flat, single or multiple, small or large. Some cluster together forming a cauliflower-like shape. Sometimes you can have itching or irriation. If you think you might have this I would go to your doctor. Hope this helps!

no. genital warts are a whole diffrent straind of warts.

See also: Pictures of Genital Warts. There are pics of Pearly Penile Papules on that page.

See 'sebacious prominence' pictures @: This may be what you're seeing. Click on first link on the following page: pictures of genital warts. The condition I mentioned is not genital warts, it just happens to be linked off the page we have for images on this site.

No, they can't. Warts on the hands etc. are usually caused by HPV types 1 and 2, but genital warts are caused by types 6 and 11. So they are not the same thing.

Honestly, I'm not sure. I know that hormonal changes can make genital warts come out. It's possible that you had the virus from before, but the HRT activated it. If I were you, I would speak with your doctor about it, and perhaps also with a health clinic. -B

and Yes it is contagious. There are many questions regarding the transmission of genital warts/HPV on this site. They can easily be found by searching or browsing.

No, most likely you will not get genital warts. The type of HPV that causes cervical dysplasia is different from the type that causes genital warts. If you have had an abnormal pap smear and have shown no signs of getting genital warts, you probably do not carry the type of HPV that causes warts, and therefore you will not get warts unless you expose yourself to a new type of HPV, or that type of HPV is lying dormant in you. So don't worry about warts unless they've shown up.

Since your partner most likely has HPV now there is no way to get rid of this virus. Once you have, it you have it for life. He might not being showing any signs of HPV such as genital warts, but if he thinks he has visible signs he might want to go speak with his doctor. Dysplasia just simply means that there are some cells that need to be taken off your cervix. Once your doctor takes those off you still have the virus but you might now show anymore signs of it. Your boyfriend will not be able to pass it right back to you after you've had your surgery because you both have the same virus that will stay with you forever. Right now what you both need to do is take extra good care of your bodies. If you smoke, quit. And also start taking vitamins! Vitamin E is a great vitamin which helps your immune system. I think you should start taking these daily especially if you've had signs of dysplasia. Centrum is also a good vitamin to take daily as well. Hope this information helps..if you have anymore questions feel free to e-mail me.

If you have had an abnormal pap smear most likely you do not have HPV and you won't get genital warts. But still if you are worried about being exposed to this virus since so many people have it, I would ask your doctor to test you specifically for HPV. Sometimes a pap smear will come back ASCUS. This simply says that there are cells on your cervix that are normally not there. You have a 50/50 chance here of either having HPV or not. Usually ASCUS is a sign of HPV but not always. If you ever do get an ASCUS pap make sure the doctor tests you for HPV. But if I were you I would get tested for HPV, especially if you're sexually active.

There aren't any specific name brand over the counter treatments available. I've heard of various herbs and vitamins available at grocery stores that some have had success with: Folic acid, Vitamin E, Zinc and/or Echinachea. I like to take a Cayenne supplement it improves circulation and it's my belief that this helps heal by greater oxygen delivery throughout the body.

Here are two great answers from a related question: Can genital warts have anything to do with sores in a persons mouth, or swollen glands?. No not usually. Sores sound more like raw spots in the mouth. Warts would probably be raised or flat bumps in the mouth. Don't get these confused though with regular taste buds. There are big taste buds found way back in your throat in a shape of a V. Swollen glands could be from anything. If you have tonsils you could be having problems with those, sore throat, or just a small infection some where. Hope this helps.

I think that it is possible to get genital warts in the mouth. I think that they would look similar to the kind you get on your genitals. Do you have a sore throat or swollen glands? I would definately go to the Ear Nose Throat doctor and have them do a biopsy. They put you to sleep and it is kind of expensive but it would be worth it to you for peace of mind. I have had a similar situation and am going in the end of the month to have them all removed- even if it isn't hpv it will make me feel better about the situation. However, it may be nothing to worry about- they may prescribe you some kind of antibiotic to see if that gets rid of them for you.
