Question: Doctor Kekkar, i have been diagnosed with high risk HPV, i have small dome shape warts that just appeared yesterday after an electric cauterization.

If my girlfriend has this same condition and we have oral sex, can i get the same virus type in my mouth? (i am worried because we have not had protected sex for the last few months).

Greetings and thank you for your initial diagnosis.
