    Can you get warts in your mouth? I have warts on my tongue, even though I haven't been in contact with a person who was infected for over a year.

    Hi Jay,

     

    I'm sure you've gotten an answer to your question by now, but I wanted to answer this in case it's helpful to someone else. It is possible to get warts in your mouth, even if you've not been in contact with a herpes-infected person in a while. That's because the HPV virus may lie dormant and "reactivate" at a later time. You can read more about that here. I'd recommend that you talk to your doctor as soon as possible about these oral warts, and, of course, take care to keep from passing the virus on to others until you have a better idea of whether these sores are herpetic.

     

    Good luck to you!
