Hi, I was recently diagnosed with a papilloma of my lower left eyelid. I am confused. Is this due to the HPV virus. I have heard conflicting views. Someone told me it could be from rubbing my eyes and allergies. Any help would be helpful. I am worried about getting more warts. Thanks
It could very well be caused by the HPV (human papilloma virus) virus, of which there are multiple strains/species. It's not sexually transmitted so don't worry. Try to not touch your eyes, but if you must then always clean your hands well first.
