I'm kind of a freak about germs and viruses in general, but there's one thing in particular that I've been tormented by. I'm a bit OCD about this, but my brother has a massive wart on his hand and I'm so fearful I"m going to get it from him. I've read enough on the internet to freak me out and it's just so stupid. My question is, if a common wart touches item X (keys, couch, phone, etc.) can I then get a wart from touching the same item X? This sorta thing drives me crazy, my brother has come over to my house and obviously his wart has come into contact with many different things in my house and there's nothing I can really do about it, but I want to know if I can contract the wart virus just by touching the same random things in my house that I think he touched (this was about 3 weeks ago that he came over).
