    I was on a works training day we were practicing restraint techniques for working in a medium secure unit and it meant pairing up with a partner to practice them. It meant that we had to grab hold of the partners hand and arm for prolonged periods for hours to practice different holds. The woman i was with i noticed had warts on her hand and fingers rough circular lumps (i saw about 4 at least). I know that you can catch them by skin to skin contact i saw the warts make contact with my skin deveral times
    I have to work with her all week as she is my training partner and I dont know what im supposed to do. I cant avoid working with her but i dont want to catch them either.

    What would you do? Just carry on and forget the concern, are they even that contagious in adulthood?

    Just grin and bear it I'm afraid. It'll be unprofessional to refuse to touch her hand because she has warts.

    Medium secure. Its unprofessional to leave them exposed though and risk spreading. I will be studying physio soon so dont really want warts on my hand people/other students wont want me touching them

    Why don't you just tell whoever is running the course? The person going around spreading warts should feel uncomfortable, not you. There are readily available treatments in supermarkets and pharmacys. Ask for a different partner. Or y'know just do nothing and catch warts.
