Genital Warts: Possible from shared razor?

Question by H2Oskier: Genital Warts: Possible from shared razor?
While shaving my pubic area, I got a few tiny cuts from my razor but thought nothing of it. Within a week or so, I began developing bumps around the base of my penis. At that time, I had 2 other roommates sharing the same shower, so I’ve been wondering ever since whether I may have contracted warts from one of them using my razor. Is contraction in this way possible, or is it much more likely that this was a dormant HPV that coincidentally happened when I caused those small nicks on my skin?

It has now been almost 2 years, and I have tried everything– from herbal remedies, to self OTC freezing methods, to Aldara. Looks like my next step will be cryotherapy…..ugh. Doctor’s have had varying diagnosis’…..from Molluscum to Warts. Any thoughts?
Been with my wife for 3 years. She has NO symptoms.
Previous doctor treated me with Aldara. The medication hasn’t worked worth a s**t.
