Scared

Okay he just found out today that my nephew has hpv and he is living with us. Are we able to get this from going to the bathroom after he has? How is this transmitted??? So scared I have a 7 year old little boy and I want to make sure he is not at risk by using the same toilet.

Re: Scared

Hi,

HPV is transmitted through skin-to-skin contact. You can't get it from using the same bathroom, as the HPV virus can't live long outside of living tissue.

Hugs,

Lisa
