: : my b/f has anal warts. everything ive read, makes me believe they are sexually transmitted. he says no to this. anyone know much about them?

:
: Anal warts are caused by a herpes virus and are contageous. Treatment includes antibiotics as well as cryosurgery. They are an STD but can also be transmitted non-sexually (depending on the type of the herpes virus). They are little nasty things and you should be very careful.

No, The virus that causes herpes isn't the same as the one causing warts, and no, you don't treat virus with antibiotics.
But yes, it could very well be an STD, like genital warts.
