Contagious areas of skin pertaining to HPV….

Patient: I have HPV warts on and in my Anus. Is only the skin with the warts infected? For example, is the skin nearby or on my penis contagious?

Symptoms: Warts

Doctor: Thanks for your question.You are right, HPV affects only skin but it is also contagious too as you can get it throug h skin contact. Wherever you touch your skin, without washing your hand, can get infected including your penile area.Hope it helps.
