Can I become infected if someone touches me who is infected?

This will probably sound horribly rediculous, but I am just wondering if someone who has HPV accidently pokes me in the eye with their finger. Is it possible for me to now be infected?
Also should I avoid sitting on this person's bed, avoid touching certain things in their house or be washing my hands all the time?

I was told it was transmitted through skin contact and not through fluid?

Turkee cmon really?  You already answered the question yourself.  Ridiculious!  You will at some point get hpv anyway.
