Expert Q & A Answers About catch genital warts

Can I catch genital warts from giving my boyfriend a hand job?

My boyfriend has genital warts. I don’t understand how I could get infected. If I stimulate him by hand (I mean by giving him a hand job), will I get infected...even if I don’t see any warts?

I was diagnosed and treated for genital warts, but they came back. What should I do?

About a year and a half ago I noticed something on my penis. I thought nothing of it and it went away by itself. About 18 months later, something appeared again so I went to the sexual health clinic, where they diagnosed several flat warts. I was given ointment to treat the warts and that seemed to help. But then a flat wart came back ⎼ much bigger, 0.5 cm diameter ⎼ and another has become a raised wart, about 0.3 cm diameter. I treated them again with the ointment and they seemed to be going way again...but almost overnight, they have come back. T he raised wart raised and the flat wart is looking pink and healthy. Can you help? Is there another ointment I can get? I do not want to go to the sexual health clinic again if possible.
