HPV from sharing clothes?? DONATION coming!!!

Oct 12, 2007

My sister has HPV. She recently gave me some of her old bathing suits which I washed before wearing. Is there any way I can contract HPV from her? Can any HPV from the bathing suits infect other clothes I washed? How long does HPV live in the air?


Response from Dr. Frascino


Relax. There is no HPV (or HIV) risk from what you described.
