Wart question - please help!!

Sep 23, 2005

Hi Dr Bob, your quick witted, anti Bush, pro homosexual humor always makes me laugh! Ok here's my story.

1 year ago - protected vaginal sex with prostitute. Prior to this I had a typical wart on my knee. 1 year later two more warts have developed: 1 just besidee this one and one on my hand both are smaller in size.

I've read that this can be indicative of a weakening immune system. Don't you think its just a bit coincidental that these warts appeared after this?

Thanks, donation coming.


Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Rik,

Protected sex is indeed protected, assuming the latex condom was used properly and did not fail.

Warts are very common. The vast majority of cases have nothing to do with weakened immune systems or HIV disease. A dermatologist should be able to zap these guys into oblivion without difficulty.

Regarding Bush, it seems the gates are down, the lights are flashing, but the train isn't coming! I think the time has come for Dubya to do what he's always done best: lose interest and walk away, like he did with his military service, the oil company and the baseball team! If he stays in office much longer, he may try to give the space program to the church or perhaps give embryos the right to vote.

Stay well.

Dr. Bob
