Just recently diagnosed with HPV. To make matters worse my Dermatologist had to laser a wart off the lip on my mouth. So disgusted with myself not to mention I feel dirty and contaminated. He started me on some veregan ointment even though the laser took care of it 2 months ago. He said I am still contagious and could possibly infect my daughter by giving her kisses :-( I'm devastated. I know the virus can lie dormant, but how long am I considered contagious. I have NO open or draining wounds. I have NO genital warts. I specifically asked to have my OBGYN check during the colposcopy. Just disgusted, frustrated with my actions and confused. Please provide clarification.
