Hi AD!
Welcome to HCM.HPV or human papilloma virus affects skin and mucous membranes.Genital HPV infections are contracted through sexual intercourse, anal sex and other skin-to-skin contact in the genital region. Some HPV infections that result in oral or upper respiratory lesions are contracted through oral sex. Symptoms are by and large missing till a heavy viral load is reached.plantar,genital warts,cervical cancer are result of heavy viral load.No treatment exists for HPV infection as the body is known to clear the viral load on its own.You can reduce your risk of developing genital warts and other HPV-related genital lesions by: Being in a mutually monogamous sexual relationship, Reducing your number of sex partners
Using a latex condom, which may prevent some but not all HPV transmission.vaccine is available for women,not tested in men.Take care.
