Can you catch warts? – HPV virus

Can you catch warts? – HPV virus
August 1st, 2020 / HPV

Great question! The answer is absolutely.

Warts are caused by a type of virus called the HPV virus.

This virus loves to live in warm, moist environments such as public swimming pools, showers and gyms.

You can protect your feet from the wart-causing virus by wearing shoes or thongs.

If someone at home has a wart, they’ll be spreading the virus around the house, which you can pick up just by sharing showers or walking barefoot around the house.

Get them to call our Perth Podiatrists and book in for an appointment to get rid of that pesky wart and prevent you from getting one too!
