Expert Q & A Answers About genital warts on boxers

Can you get genital warts by borrowing an infected person’s boxers?

Can you get genital warts by borrowing an infected person’s boxers? Here’s my story: I play in rock band and we had a photoshoot a while ago. We had to dress up in boxers and silk shirts...but I was in a hurry that day and forgot my “sexy” boxers. The photographer let me borrow her husband’s boxers so I replaced mine with his and did the shoot. A month later, I wind up with some strange bumps on my genitals and the doctor says I have genital warts. Then I remember that the photographer’s husband has genital warts. Could that be the cause? My girlfriend just got a Pap and it doesn’t show anything, and she’s getting a more sensitive test soon to see if she has the virus...
