Hi there,

Transmission of HPV from a razor (or any other object) has never been documented. It wouldn't be common or likely, but you can't rule it out. Were it too happen, the situation would probably be where someone uses a razor in the genital area while HPV-related skin growths (like warts) are present. It's good common sense not to share a razor if someone uses it while they have warts but it you've done this, you probably shouldn't really lose any sleep.

Best,
Fredo
