I would like to know if it’s possible to spread genital herpes to other parts of your body while your bathing. Is this possible? I’ve been using a different wash cloth every time I shower. I’m not sure what the risk of spreading it to my other limbs is.
The pathology lab said the cancer at the back of my tongue was type P16 HPV (one of the cancer-causing ones that they immunize against). I finished treatment almost 4 years ago and am "otherwise healthy."
1. Am I still contagious for P16 HPV?
2. Ethically speaking, must I tell partners that my cancer was type P16 HPV and that I may still be contagious?
