Yes: Chances are you already have the virus that causes genital warts, human papillomavirus, hpv, mostly types 6 and 11. You have a 70% chance of infection with this virus by one unprotected sex with an infected individual via direct skin-to-skin contact. Only 1-5% infected will develop genital warts. ...Read more

If I kiss my girlfriend with a cold sore on my lip, how long will it take for her to get one?

If I kiss my girlfriend with a cold sore on my lip, how long will it take for her to get one?

No such guarantee: First there is no guarantee that she does not already have oral herpes. Most people with oral herpes got it as children from other family members. A blood test is the only accurate way to assess her herpes status. Second you are contagious when you don't have a sore as well. ...Read more

How long do warts live out side its host..  I have been diagnosed with plantar warts and i was also told it can get into me cloths and spread.

Warts can spread.: Warts can spread through entire gym classes. So they must be able to survive lying on damp shower floors for a period of time. Oddly enough, I have rarely seen two members of the same family with plantar warts. ...Read more

Unpredictable: One of the reasons that there are so many people who think they know home remedies for warts is that they seem to respond to many things (or not). There is little predictability. Go get it seen by a professional. ...Read more

I have hsv2 all over my body and am taking acyclovir, how long does it take to go away and can it reoccur? If so what should I do?

HSV: Very very unusual to have lesions all over your body if they are really due to hsv. Are you sure this is not varicella (chickenpox)? You might want to have a doctor examine this (dermatologist preferably), since this is a strange story. ...Read more

How is it possible for me to get chlamydia and not my fiance? Can I go years without knowing I have it?? Does this diesease go dormant?

How is it possible for me to get chlamydia and not my fiance? Can I go years without knowing I have it?? Does this diesease go dormant?

A few possibilities: Urine tests in men miss up to 10% of infections. Chlamydia can self cure in a few weeks in men; he may have had it, now cleared. Maybe he was treated but didn't admit it. "Years" is too long, but you may have had it from a past partner and your fiance just lucky he didn't catch it from you. The test isn't perfect, small chance your result is false. The main thing now is that both need treatment. ...Read more

I have phytophotodermatitis from limes. My hands are blotchy/hyperpigmented. How can I get my hands back to normal? How long will it take?

I have phytophotodermatitis from limes. My hands are blotchy/hyperpigmented. How can I get my hands back to normal? How long will it take?

Sun protection: Phytophotodermatitis should be treated just like other contact allergies, but with an emphasis on good sun protection (broad spectrums sunscreens). Topical steroids can help initially to improve the redness and the itch. The hyperpigmented spots, however, can take months to go away. Sometimes a dermatologist can prescribe a bleaching cream, to help in the meantime. Hope this helps & good luck! ...Read more

I have a infected tooth how long does it take the anitbotics to get into my system and stop hurting?

24-48 hours: But remember, antibiotic only controls infection in/around a tooth...doesn't cure it. When the course of antibiotics is over, pain and infection will come roaring right back. You need definitive dental treatment to remove all infected tissue. See your Dentist for appropriate treatment. ...Read more

I have swollen glands how long will it take to go away and is it contagious if i kiss my boyfriend ?

I have swollen glands how long will it take to go away and is it contagious if i kiss my boyfriend ?

Is it contagious?: The questions are 1) what is the cause of the swollen "glands" (is that lymph nodes or parotid, or salivary glands, or...?)? And 2) is it contagious? If your parotid is swollen from an obstructing stone, it has nothing to do with infection and is not contagious. The correct quesions and answer are needed... ...Read more

Just found out I have highrisk hpv and cin1! Some say they will go away is that true? How long does it take?? How do i get rid of them quicker?

Why was pap done?: Immune system clears HPV, typically in several months. HPV DNA may persist and infection may reactivate years later, but usually doesn't. Why did you have a pap anyway? Paps are no longer recommended before age 25. If your HPV and CIN1 were never detected, they would have cleared on their own, with almost no cancer risk and none of this unnecessary worry. Get HPV vaccine, prevent future problems. ...Read more

My brother has HIV and i live with him how can I keep away from it and not let it spread to me?

My brother has HIV and i live with him how can I keep away from it and not let it spread to me?

Avoid blood contact: You are unlikely at risk for HIV from your brother. Hiv is spread through unprotected sexual contact or sharing infected needles. I'm assuming you're doing neither with your brother, so your risk is minimal. I would avoid blood contact if you have an open sore or cut, but intact skin will protect you from hiv. Would not share razors or toothbrushes, but okay to share eating utensils, toilet, etc. ...Read more
