Red face Help!! possible HPV

I posted before about thinking I may have an STD I would have gotten from kissing another person. The person that I have kissed before has red bumps in his throat. Is it possible to get HPV in your mouth? If so since they say there is no cure for it, how would you go about getting rid of it because it just seems as thought it will just prgressivly close off the passage? I dont understand because if there in no cure how does someone funcution?? I have no idea what to do about this.

Re: Help!! possible HPV

It's definatally possible to get HPV in your throat but it's very unlikely...besides...contracting HPV includes skin to skin contact and there is no way u are going to have skin to skin contact from kissing if it is in this throat...just my opinion though...Hope it helps...Good luck

Re: Help!! possible HPV

The only time someone would have warts from HPV in their mouth would be if they were severely immune depressed (advanced HIV, autoimmune disorder, etc). Even under those circumstances, oral warts are extremely rare. angel_of_faith is correct, contracting HPV requires skin to skin contact which wouldn't happen in your case.

It sounds like you have some concerns over STI's in general. It's good to be cautious, but to be informed is even better. Check out the Medical Info in the Health Center section of this site. It's a great resource and gives great information on STI prevention.
Live your life, don't fear it.

What would it look like if someone had HPV in their throat though? I think thats the question that people need to ask.
