Check this out...HPV has been discovered under men's fingernails . Is this really any surprise? Men sometimes have disgusting hand hygiene...there's probably a lot more than just HPV under those fingernails! Ewwwwwww!
Seriously though, check out the post on this cuz it's going to throw another wrench in the HPV vaccination works. First you had the deaths related to HPV and undiagnosed cardiac problems and now this. But maybe the men have it because...well, I hate to be vulgar...they are putting their fingers in certain places - namely women's vaginas. Is this going to be like a carrier state maybe? Interesting stuff and well worth keeping an eye on.
My oldest daughter is only 7...so I still have some time to sit and watch how this unfolds. Initially I was excited about the possibility but then the cardiac + HPV deaths freaked me out a bit. With the strong history of heart problems in my husband's side of the family I am not real keen on it anymore. We shall see...
For more info on HPV and the vaccination go to the CDC website .
