Question:
At the end of october, a friend of mine who has genital warts was visiting me. After a shower, he took his boxer shorts off and left them on the floor. Approximately 2 hrs later, in the middle of the night, I accidentally put them on me. Recently, I've been diagnosed with the same STD. I understand the various treatments and that it will never go away. I am curious though as to if the outbreaks will be constant for the rest of my life, or is it similar to a cold sore in that you only get them when you have a weak immune system. Also, the current oubreak is on my penis. Is it a regular occurrance to have the warts show up in my anus or on my testicles? thank you.

Answer:
The mode of transmission assumed really does seem highly unlikely. Outbreaks are unpredictable just as those of herpes and for similar reasons - they often but not inevitably accompany or follow periods of increased stress whether psychological, nutritional, at work, in sleeping patterns, etc. Again, purely as a generalization, anal warts generally do not occur unless there has been local infection. You are best advised to follow these issues up directly with your doctor.
