Just a question that's been bugging me.
When a good immune system takes only a week to two weeks to get rid of a common cold, why does it take so long to get rid of something like HPV (6 months to two years). I mean, I know HPV like many viruses can go dormant in nerve endings etc but the body obviously know its there (it itches) and it must send out T-Cells to the area the warts are located. Why is it not then kaboom to the virus?
Sorry to be so simple and I appreciate the answer to this is probably far more complex than I am making out but I would be grateful for any answers.
Have been taking vitamin supplements in the hope that my immune system might get a little more with it and kill the genital hiroshima's a bit faster
