    No, they are not. Just a virus.

    Um. Kinda.

    See, warts are in a way, contagious. But I *THINK* that when it's being treated, altho still there, it's not.

    As my hubby used to get them on his hands and fingers, and well, we did that so-mentioned deed and I never had a problem. But he always treated them.

    So...just make sure they be treating them and call an RN at the hospital and talk to her/him if you are still unsure.

    Oh yeah. That is how you can get planters warts on your feet---from walking bare foot where someone with a wart walked

    Only certain types like genital herpes, I don't think you can catch anything from warts on fingers.

    yes, Warts are passed from person to person, directly and indirectly.
