Can I spread HPV to a toddler by changing diapers

I have hpv, the kind that causes warts. I wash in the shower with a towel and then wash the towel and reuse it. I rinse using my hands and the shower head, Can I pass this to my niece by changing her diaper? She had a rash and I had to put cream on her bottom with my fingers. I use anti-bacterial soap too. I am worried and need to know. I was the only one around to put cream on her bottom. I don't have warts on my fingers, just on my genitals. Thank you.

No. It is almost impossible to spread HPV indirectly (with your hands for example). Soap will kill any virus anyway.
