STI: A 'common' sexually transmitted infection in the over-65s – signs of anogenital warts


Share post:

“There’s no cure for genital warts, but it’s possible for your body to fight the virus over time.”

Most genital warts are caused by HPV 6 and HPV 11 – and it must be noted that warts on the fingers “do not spread to the genital skin”.

How is genital warts spread?

The NHS said genital warts can not be passed on from hugging, sharing baths, towels, sheets, toilet seats or swimming pools from an infected person.

The infection can, however, be passed on from sharing sex toys if they are not washed and covered with a condom if used on another person.
