I was diagnosed with HPV yesterday. How can I find who gave it to me?

May never know: Unless you have only had one sexual partner, you may never know. Not all docs test all patients all the time for hpv. The hpv test may only have been done this time in response to an atypical pap smear. All patients with hpv do not test positive all the time. The virus may have been present for years and was just now discovered and identified.Your partner may not know he/she has it. ...Read more

I have strep throat and was told i can't go to work but I have a deadline to meet. My doctor. Said it was dangerous. How so? For who?

Your co-workers!: Strep is contagious, so you risk infecting others who may come in contact with you while infectious (coughing, sneezing, hand-hand contact), but you stop being contagious a day or two after being on antibiotics. Don't risk getting others sick if you are not yet better or there will be more deadlines missed than yours. ...Read more

I had my second pap results yesterday. I have an abnormal cell growth but HPV is negative. How is this possible?

I had my second pap results yesterday. I have an abnormal cell growth but HPV is negative. How is this possible?

It is possible.: Usually, these pap results are termed ascus (atypical cells of undetermined significance) hpv negative. While the hpv test is highly accurate, there are rare false negative results--i doubt this would happen twice. The pap test will test for any changes to the cells of the cervix, including those caused by hpv. There is usually no additional treatment necessary and yearly pap would be appropria. ...Read more

Hello. I found yesterday that I have HPV. I Dont know how I got this. I am married and have two kids. Can I have complications in pregnancy? Thank you

Common issue: HPV is a family of viruses, some of which infect the genital tract.In the pre-vaccine era 60-70% of college age women were found serum positive for genital strains. Only a few strains have symptoms (warts) most do not. Their link to cervical cancer is why pap smears are routine. Once acquired, it can be dormant forever.Rare transfer of the wart stains can occur during childbirth. ...Read more

I have oral hpv and ebv, my son just was caught using my toothbrush, last time i used it was yesterday or hours before, is it good chance he'll be ok?

Probably fine: Who knows if you have active viruses in your mouth which would then stay viable on your toothbrush and then be transmissible to your son? You will just have to see. We have very few antiviral drugs. None for EBV. There is a new 9-Valent HPV vaccine. Make sure your kid is fully vaccinated. ...Read more

I am a 25yr male. I took my first HPV Vaccination shot yesterday. I have been feeling very feverish the whole of last night and today. Is this normal?

Not the vaccine: HPV vaccine doesn't cause fever. "Feeling feverish" may or may not be a fever anyway -- take your temperature to know. Symptoms like this can be psychological, e.g. if you are experiencing anxiety about the vaccine or HPV risks. But almost certainly these feelings are otherwise unrleated to the vaccine. You should still have the additional dose(s) as recommended by your doctor. ...Read more

Yesterday my 12 yr old got a meningitis & HPV shots. Her arm is really swollen is this normal or should l have her checked out by a Dr.?

Conservative Rx: Swelling of the arm sometimes occurs after a vaccine but is generally not serious. The swelling generally recedes after a few days. A cold compress may help with the discomfort. The swelling and soreness may benefit from an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen. However, do not give aspirin. If this problem persists check it out with your child's doctor. ...Read more

Rash anus: hello, this sounds like a reactivation of a herpes rash.Remember herpes in this area is not only spread sexually.Its also spread by self-inoculation, ie: you touch a herpes sore in the mouth, dont wash hands then go to BR and wipe after toilet activity. You can treat this with mild 1% hydrocort, or Vaseline, or moisturizer. I would not go anti-viral route for mild rash.It may recur.WASH HANDS, etc ...Read more

Yesterday , i had protected sex with a sex worker. however i could see some blister near her private parts. Should i get pep for hpv or other diseases. And for bacterial & yeast can i take azithromycin 1mg + metronidazole 2 g?

Probably not: For specific advise consult your physician. Use of a condom would make it less likely to have contracted HSV. Same for gonorrhea,HIV and Trichomonas. Testing for HSV isn't helpful as there is nothing to cure it and no treatment indicated in absence of symptoms. No treatment indicated for Candida(yeast) or Bacterial Vaginosis as male contacts don't need Rx.Only visit sex workers certified STD free ...Read more

Is it possible to get oral hpv after 22 years Have past since I have been with the partner that gave it to me?

Is it possible to get oral hpv after 22 years Have past since I have been with the partner that gave it to me?

Very unlikely: Confusing question. Are you saying you caught genital HPV from a partner 22 years ago, and now wonder whether you could have inoculated your own mouth/throat recently? That is very unlikely, since your genital infection probably is long gone. If you wonder whether you caught oral HPV 22 years ago, it might have happened. But if so that infection probably also is long gone. ...Read more
