Not really!: Intolerance is a manifestation of a person's inability to have the ability to be compassionate and understand that like themselves we all have "bad hair days". Probably these people have more inner demons with which they struggle. But in my opinion mental illness is not more likely among those who are intolerant than the rest of us.

Yes: About 95% of otherwise healthy adults who are exposed to hepatitis b will control the infection with their own immune systems.

Can you have liver inflammation without it being hepatitis, or are live inflammation and hepatitis exactly the same thing?
Common: The most prevalent (how many have it a given time)is herpes simplex type 2. One in three american women are positive for the antibody to hsv 2 .

It has a higher incidence (new cases) than herpes (hsv2) but it doesn't persist as much. Women more than men. ...Read more
Can someone with HPV become reinfected if they remain with the same person they know for a fact gave the virus to them?
No and yes: Once you have a specific strain of hpv, you will always have it. It may disappear from your pap smears, doctors won't detect it, but it can always come back.
