Hi, ive just found this forum and thought id share my story. For the last nine years ive suffered with various skin problems and still havnt got a complete diagnosis. Even worse is the fact that my problem is contagious, and from the first visit to my doctor ive been told its an allergy and nothing to worry about. The symptoms are itching, hives, boils andnettle type rashes. Because my doctors wont believe its contagious ive infected hundreds of pple at work, in many different workplaces. Now 9 yrs later im going to do something about it, the first 2 years i went to the doctors repaetedly and was given antibiotics, shampoos which none helped, just made it worse.Two years ago approx, i was diagnosed with hpv, and the doctors said it wasnt really contagious? I no longer go to the doctors as they have labelled me as delusional and i get too upset being fobbed off each time. Ive been reading alot on med negligence etc and im hoping i have a case for delayed, failure to diagnose. I know im contagious and all my fellow workers get the same symptoms, itching small boils, spots on face and scalp. Ive suffered with depression on and off for the past 9 yrs, not so much because of my symptoms, but because i cant get my doctors to believe me. I think i have another infection on top of the hpv which causes the boils and spots, painful spots. Im now open about my itchy problem in work, ive told them i think i have an infection and they think its bugs etc from the factory, which i know it isnt. I have now got so fed up im going to ask my boss this week for confirmation (written) that im spreading an infection around. My doctors have given me lots of medication antibiotics etc when i first started to go, all these medications were given to me even thou they couldnt diagnose my prob. Im now applying for my records as i know there are numerous errors, i remember seeing my gps computer screen with my records and each entry just said sore skin many many times. How can they give me loads of different medications even skin steroids which i believe made my face/ skin worse without diagnosind the problem, i believe all the diff antibiotics he gave me made me worse and my symptoms worse. Im really confused, is HPV contagious all the time, or just some of the time? Im hoping soon i will get closure with my problem, my symptoms are now 80% better but im still highly contagious. I can live with the symptoms but i cant cope with the fact everybody i come close too catches this infection. Any help info appreciated thanks.........Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
