I have been diagnosed in...
I have been diagnosed in the past with an HPV strains that cause cervical cancer as well as genital warts. I worry about passing this along. I was wondering if I can pass this on while changing a baby’s diaper? I’ve read on some sites this is true. Whenever I do change a diaper, I make sure to washmy hands beforehand. Is there any chance of spreading this to a child while changing their diaper?

Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I looking forward to assisting you with your question and providing excellent service. Hpv is passed through sexual contact. Not by changing a diaper. Not ever

I know but what about genital warts. If I were to wipe myself going to the bathroom or touch my genitals and then change a diaper after without washing my hands.
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I’m just wondering if the warts could be passed that way not the HPV strain.
Not at all. They may be passed if you used a washcloth that you just washed yourself with, not by casual contact

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
