Dear Fredo,

I have another concern. How can I clear the infection and virus when the odds seem to be against me?

In addition to me being a 46 year old woman, I also lived with a smoker that will not quit. It is my mom. I cannot tell her of my medical situation. She would not understand. My son and I are living with my parents until I can get on my feet.

Any suggestions of how I can beat the odd age and living with someone who is a second hand smoker.

Thank you,

Shegi

You know, a number of experts would recommend a diet with sufficient amounts of B vitamins and beta-carotene. The HPV-second hand smoke link hasn't been proven conclusively, but there's some speculation that it might make viral clearance here a bit more difficult (I stress this has NOT been proven).

I have no idea if this is sound advice, but perhaps a filter or air purifier for your room? There are plenty of reasons to avoid the second-hand smoke beyond HPV, as it can be irritating to your child's respiratory system. That might be an angle to play, and a truthful one at that!

Fredo
