    Default NS' wisdom-filled thread

    I realised that I learn something new everyday. So I will post about it in a separate thread that isn't my exceedingly emo blog thread.

    My friend has a plantar wart on her foot. We had a very confusing argument about HPV (which causes warts) versus herpes.

    So it ended with (as documented by IM):
    me: so you don't have hpv?
    then how do you know that you don't have herpes?
    ok
    you don't have herpes
    there's no such thing as foot herpes
    according to wiki
    unless it's a rare form of herpetic whitlow

    So. Lessons of the day:
    1) Herpes is caused by another virus, not HPV.
    2) Both HPV and herpes cause warts/sores so it can be confusing.
    3) But foot warts are caused by HPV, unless you're really unlucky and have whatever rare crappy foot-warty herpes.
    4) Wiki has a really awesome animated gif of a wart being treated.
    5) My friend has HPV and should get some gardasil.

    Till tomorrow, good night.
