So I borrowed my friends hair buzzer n trimmed my entire body, now found out I have HPV . He wants it back, I cleaned it with soup water n alcohol?

So I borrowed my friends hair buzzer n trimmed my entire body, now found out I have HPV . He wants it back, I cleaned it with soup water n alcohol?

Tell them the story: Although it would be very unusual to transmit hpv by an inanimate object like an electric hair trimmer, particularly removed in time from its last use and cleaned thoroughly, they may want you to keep that one and get them a new one. Their fear may be unwarranted, but if you want to keep them as a friend, then accede to their choices. ...Read more

How long after I've had the HPV vaccination should I wait to drink alcohol?

Hi I was curious what are the side effects of the HPV shot I got vaccinated for hpv today but I don't know what kind it was?

Almost none: Not sure what you mean by "what kind". In the US, only one HPV vaccine is available (Gardasil). You might have a little pain at the injection site for a couple of days, but that's about all. So congratulations on starting the vaccine; you won't regret it. But be sure and get the second dose in 1-2 months and the third at 6 months. ...Read more

Are there any secondary effects or risk to the HPV shot?

Are there any secondary effects or risk to the HPV shot?

None in my patients: There is nothing unusual about Gardasil. It is a newer vaccine, so is just as safe as the meningitis, hepatitis, or flu shots. Fainting after shots or blood draws has always happened to a few people in medical settings, so that's not news. In the U.S., 3000-4000 women die each year from cervical cancer, now a vaccine-preventable disease. Somebody's wife, daughter, or mother dies each 2.5 hours! ...Read more

What's the success rate for podofilox? Does it target the cosmetic effects or the actual hpv virus?

What's the success rate for podofilox? Does it target the cosmetic effects or the actual hpv virus?

Around 70-80%: Aside from surgery or cautery, all treatments are around 70-80% effective: podofilox, sinecatechins, freezing, trichloroacetic acid, imiquimod. For any of these, switch to another if the first isn't very effective. Combination treatment often is best, e.g. freezing plus podofilox. None target HPV itself, but wart removal reduces HPV load and may speed clearance by the immune system. ...Read more

My 14yr daughter is terrified of the HPV needle (she doesn't want side effects and hates needles) is the HPV shot effective if given @ an older age?

Get the Shot: The dad and the doctor inside of me come in to play here. This is not the only needle she will face. It is no different from any previous vaccination. But, it vey well may be the most important thing you can do for her future health. It is so vital that all of our children, boys and girls get this vaccine. There is nothing like sitting at the bedside of a 28-year-old saying good bye due to ca. ...Read more

Does antibiotics fight hpv? Is there anything I can do to help get rid of it? Unsure if have it. Worried about effects from it. I have no spleen.

No: HPV is a family of dozens of viral strains, some of which can be passed during skin to skin contact during sex. They remain localized to genital tissue & do not enter the blood. The primary infection can eventually self heal over months, but the virus can remain in the tissue indefinately and recur. There are no antibiotics to cure it. Only the wart strains show obvious symptoms. ...Read more

Well, yes: Well, yes, no vaccine is perfectly safe and all vaccines have potentially bad side effects. However, the data for gardisil is very reassuring.

My PAP came back with "epithelial cell abnormality. LGSIL; mild dysplasia and human papilloma virus effects are present". What does this mean?

My PAP came back with "epithelial cell abnormality. LGSIL; mild dysplasia and human papilloma virus effects are present". What does this mean?

HPV, dysplasia: You have HPV and it has caused minor cellular abnormalities in your cervix. L(G)SIL stands for low (grade) squamous intra-epithelial lesion, usually due to a low risk (non cancer-causing) type of HPV. Most likely this is not serious, but follow your doctor's advice on follow-up testing and perhaps treatment. Get vaccinated to prevent more serious HPV infections and get tested for other STDs. ...Read more

Should a homosexual male get the HPV vaccine? It is confusing because I hear it can have serious side effects and only protects for five years.

Should a homosexual male get the HPV vaccine? It is confusing because I hear it can have serious side effects and only protects for five years.

Yes: The HPV vaccine is an anti-cancer vaccine protecting against most cervical cancers and probably against anal cancers caused by the same viruses. The vaccine is very, very safe but is expensive. With limited resources in healthcare, maybe girls should be offered the vaccine first, before the boys. At this time, the vaccine is recommended for all teens, both girls and boys. ...Read more
