hi,
1-can hpv (genital warts) spread to nipple or eyes?
2-can this virus live outside the body?

There are many strains of HPV, all warts are caused by HPV but each strain is site specific. I have never seen anything regarding gential (genital) warts found in eyes or on nipples.

If you are asking can HPV be spread via objects, transmission can't be ruled out this way. It's rare and there needs to be an entry point. Most often gential (genital) HPV is spead via skin to skin gential (genital) contact.

No, maybe if she used a towel to wipe herself and you touched your genitals right after with the same towel. (more a risk for couples who share intimacy and objects) Even that would not carry a high risk but to be safe do not share anything like that. Washing clothes is fine. I live with others and share laundry, cooking, all the normal life stuff. I am careful to always wash my hands after using the bathroom.

There is no way HPV can transmit through clothes or towels. HPV is transmitted only through skin contact and only on genital area or mouth (not on nipples or eyes)
There is no reason to be afraid.

Oral tranmission is a lot less common. I kiss others on the lips without fears of exposing them. Try not to worry, talk to your sis about your fears openly and agree to use care.
