Anti-viral properties of semen?

Nov 26, 1997

This may sound way off base, but here it goes anyway.

Several years ago I ejaculated on my partner's chest, then

spread the semen around with my hands. I had several hard

warts on the underside of my fingers, which completely

went away within 3 days of this activity. I'd had the warts

for several years prior to this. On 2 or 3 subsequent

occasions, I've experimented with applying semen to other

areas where warts have appeared, and though the results were

not as dramatic in terms of time, the warts did disappear

What are the implications if warts are caused by viruses?

Response from Mr. Sowadsky

Hi. Thank you for your question. I have not found anything in the medical literature to suggest that semen would have any antiviral activity, including activity against warts of any kind.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to e-mail me at "" or call me at (Nationwide). I'm glad to help!

Thanks to Mr. Sowadsky!
