Dear Pinkboy..At the outset, your history am afraid is woefully inadequate. It is not lucid what gender you are & that makes a world of difference where HPV is concerned. Women as a rule have far greater problems associated with HPV on account of the propensity to develop cancer & the female anatomy structure that does not make a HPV infection as apparent as in the male counterpart. Eating healthy is always advisable but by itself or with additional vitamins may not make much of a difference should you have warts. Dettol will be of no use to you & may prove detrimental & cause skin burns. It is possible you are a female & the doctor has called you in for A PAP-SMEAR (WHICH IS ROUTINE NOWADAYS) do not be afraid. Go in with an open mind & by all means ask questions of your doctor when he/she suggests some such thing. Cheers & good luck. Dr Praveen RodriguesMD, Bangalore, India
