Brief Answer: Dogs bite seems to be more dangerous Detailed Answer: Hello! Thank you for the query. It does not seem to be true. Generally it all depends what kind of bacteria in the mouth has human and a dog. Dogs bite always brings a risk of rabies, especially if the dog is unknown. Moreover, dog does not brush teeth, so it has much more dangerous bacteria which can cause an infection of the wound. Sometimes such infection is very hard to treat. Human bite DOES NOT increases a risk of HIV, HBV, HCV. There is a risk of HPV infection, fungal infection and bacterial infection as well. But humans usually brush theirs teeth, what makes theirs mouths much clearer than dogs. Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions. Regards.

If a Dr wants to discuss your pap smear is it HPV related? Or Cancer related? Im quite anxious and didn't like the previous answer from the Dr on here.

Hi, I am 27 years old I just received a LSIL result for a recent pap test. I was told that it is is very likely that this could be due to an HPV infection, though they did not test for HPV, and this does not necessarily indicate cancer. I've done some research and I'm fairly okay with what I've found out but what I'm really wondering about is how this will affect my long-term relationship with my boyfriend. What are the implications of this for him in terms of his health? From what I've researched it doesn't seem that he can be tested for HPV, is this correct? Furthermore, since we've been together and sexually active together for quite awhile, is it safe to assume that if I have HPV, he does as well? Do we need to abstain from all sexual activity until this resolves itself? Thank you.

HPV infection, for my wife PAP test is done and doctor suggest to take HPV vaccination (Gardasil) three dosage, final dose is finished on last month.
