mentally challenged son with genital warts

I have a 41 yr old son who is mentally challenged and has never been sexually active. He has just been diagnosed with genital warts how is this possible? this is very upsetting we always asked him if any one ever touched him and he has said no.We are going to meet with the doctor but I would like to have an idea if this is possible.


This discussion is related to HSV and HPV testing.

you don't get genital warts through routine day to day contact.  

does he live with you or in a group home of some sort?

At this point you need to really confirm this with the Dr and then you would have to go back to the home with some questions.

  This isn't something he got from non-sexual contact.  perhaps he's embarrassed to discuss being sexually active with you?
