I get pimples on my face often i wonder if it's from HPV becuase i don't eat sugar or grease?

Not HPV: Testosterone. A good thing overall.Hpv doesn't cause acne and neither do sugar or grease despite the pop claims.

I required oral tetracycline till about age 50. ...Read more

See your doctor: What you describe could be one of several conditions. The only way to know is to be seen by a physician, probably a dermatologist, perhaps a urologist.
