Not Enough Current!: Yes..if you are a flea.But to get from your skin through your skull past the cerebrospinal fluid deep into your brain would take a lot more than a little static spark.Of course then there's the topic of 'human spontaneous combustion.'but I'll leave you and Google for that.Now, static can screw-up other things,like electrical circuits, and some fine machinery,or the Hindenburg or a gas tank(BOOM!) ...Read more

You shouldn't "forget "HIV but you can limit your exposure & your worries. ...Read more
Sis s pregnant.hsv1 IgG -ve,igm +ve.primary infection.doc diag hsv1 in lips not genital.does IgM cross placenta?is der any chance to hve healthybaby?
Yes & possible: Herpes simplex can affect the fetus, especially if it's contracted during the third trimester Since you sis's IgM was positive but IgG negative, it suggests she recently acquired the virus. She is very close to the third trimester. Treatment with Valtrex (valacyclovir) is pretty safe by 21 weeks and may reduce the chance of transmission of the virus to her baby. It should be considered. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hep c gen 1a hep clinic say after treatment my hep is undetectable dose that mean no virus in blood. Was on rib , pegues & victiriel 28 weeks?
I recieved 1 childhood varcella vaccine. But my labs show (-) VZV IgG = non immune. How is this possible as isn't vaccination previous exposure?
Not always effective: The varicella vaccine was approved initially as 1 dose in early childhood (>1 but <13) and 2 dose to teens or above. It is now suggested only as a 2 dose series, since about 15% will not develop long term antibodies with a single dose. Even with 2 doses, likely 5% will not. Natural varicella gives long term antibodies but no vaccine is perfect. ...Read more

I did a DNA PCR test for HSV & i got the result: -humanes herpesvirus-dna ((typ 7, pcr) (eb) : negative limit of detection:100 copies/ml.So i'm clean?

Hhv-7 is not the same as hsv. Though theyboth belong to the same heresviridae family. ...Read more

Absolutely not: Your question concerns me very much. Enjoying your body is normal and harmless. It's something a young man needs to do in order to stay comfortable and able to focus, and to prepare him for adult roles. It cannot possibly give you HIV. You list yourself as having "HIV" and "AIDS"; if you are truly infected and this is not just a terrible fear, you got it in some other way. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Wb-band 41 positive, dfm showed spirochetes and gemmas.Syphilis-negative.Can it be Lyme with only band 41 positive?Got inactive demyelination lessions
Possibly- more tests: A 41 band alone could signify lyme but is not enough to make the diagnosis. Unfortunately most labs don't do an adequate WB test- it's crucial to test the highly specific 31 & 34 bands & most labs don't. Ignenex does the best test.
