I have bad allergies. If allergies are caused by overactive immune system, why do I get sick so easy? 2 staph, sinus infect, HPV, MANY colds & flu.

Good question: Allergy causes inflammation of mucus membranes /skin, this inflammation invites bacteria which colonize sinuses, skin and other areas causing chronic infection with frequent flare-ups, sometimes with the allergy there could be a subtle defect in the complex immune system which adds to the problem, you need to see a qualified allergist/immunologist for management, keep follow up with your doctor/ENT ...Read more

Had HPV since Dec 2016. had sex 2 weeks ago. Saw small yellow on right tonsil, need to clear throat sometimes. No pain, no fever. Cancer or fungus??

Had HPV since Dec 2016. had sex 2 weeks ago. Saw small yellow on right tonsil, need to clear throat sometimes. No pain, no fever. Cancer or fungus??

Probably neither: It is highly unlikely that you have fungal infection or cancer from sex two weeks ago. Even though you had HPV, still get vaccine to prevent infection with other strains of HPV. If you miss your period by 4-5 days, do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

If low-risk HPV is so common & acts similar to flu or chickenpox; symptoms treatable, system weakens virus, why is it so stigmatized as threatening?

If low-risk HPV is so common & acts similar to flu or chickenpox; symptoms treatable, system weakens virus, why is it so stigmatized as threatening?

Because of sex: Two main reasons. First, HPV is sexually transmitted, and throughout history most societies have had negative views about sex and see STDs as embarrassing and frightening. Second, warts, the main problem from low risk HPV, have a "yuck" factor. Even common hand warts often are considered unclean (e.g folklore about catching them from toads), and many people consider genital warts especially gross. ...Read more
