Tested positive for HPV-16

Nov 20, 2012 - 7 comments

hpv 16








inflamed taste buds

For those following my case, I just want to inform you that my test came back positive for HPV-16.

A few weeks ago, they took a sample from my tongue (oral swab) from the area where the irritated taste buds are (see picture below). The test came back positive.

It looks like then this was the cause of my tongue issues?!

Tomorrow I have an apointment with the dermatologist as I will start a treatment against this. I will update you if this clears up.

Update 9 months post incident: Still white tongue and irritated taste buds/pimples in tongue

Nov 10, 2012 - 5 comments

white tongue


taste buds



For those following my case:

-- CMIA HIV 1/2 + Ag p24: Negative (nearly 9 months post incident). This is the first HIV test I take in a different laboratory. All previous test were taken in the same place.

-- Haemophilus influenzae still positive on tongue. Dermatologist think this is not the cause of my white tongue and irritated taste buds and has suggested me to go with an inmunologist and also take a tongue biopsy to see what's wrong.

Waiting for HPV results. They took an oral swab of my tongue to see if HPV is the cause of the pimples/irritated taste buds there.

Some pictures of my tongue:

Tongue left side: notice the pimple/irritated taste buds

Tongue front: notice the irritated taste buds

Will keep you everyone updated on my case.
