Response from Mr. Glenn

Thanks for your questions,

1) HPV is not considered a HIV-related symptoms. It's a completely separate infection/disease

2) Recurrence of warts in only an indication of having HPV

3) HPV is only transmitted through direct and aggressive contact between the skin of an infected person and the skin of an uninfected person.

After reading your questions, it feels like you're confused on whether the presence of HPV (warts) is a way to tell if you have HIV? If that's what you're curious about, know that it doesn't work that way because they aren't connected!

If you had a clear risk for HIV, it's about getting tested for HIV. There are many places you can find by searching online.

Hope this helps,


Dr. Erik answer me please
