  • I don't think they are that contagious, but I'd be paranoid too. Tell her NO KISSING at all even on the cheek, and no drinking from his cup! (Geez, why would she even do that!!??)

  • I'm not sure so I don't want to assume, but if it was me I wouldn't want her to share drinks or foods with my kids and I guess the kisses are fine.

  • Btw, you should take him to see his pediatrician just to be on the safe side.

    How are genital warts passed on?
    Genital warts can be passed from one person to another during sex, and by skin-to-skin contact with someone who has the wart virus. Once you have the virus, it can remain in the body and be passed on before warts are noticeable, or after they've disappeared.
    Warts can be external or internal. In women, warts can be found on or in the vagina, vulva (the lips around the opening to the vagina), cervix (entrance to the womb) and anus (the opening to the back passage). In men, warts can be found on or around the penis, scrotum and urethra (tube where urine comes out) and on or inside the anus.

  • The virus can spread if you have vaginal or anal sex, or share sex toys. Sometimes the virus can be passed on just by close intimate contact. It is possible, but unusual, to develop warts in the mouth or on the lips from oral sex. Warts can spread to the area around the anus without having anal sex.

    In rare cases, it is possible for a pregnant woman to pass the virus to her baby at birth.

    You cannot get genital warts from kissing, hugging, sharing baths or towels, from swimming pools, toilet seats or from sharing cups, plates or cutlery.

  • ask her too go for treatment,if she is on it fine. Take your baby for a regular cheek-up.

  • yes it is possible she can give him to him not with kissing on the cheek but the drinking thing and kissing on the mouth. explain to her that this is your child an your just trying to protect him. i know this counds wrong but if she wont listen tell her she can't see him nuntil she understands because that is not right to put an innocent kid at rkisk good luck and i hope your not mad for my respond
