    I wrote about this elsewhere too but not sure if many saw it. I read warts are from a virus and have to do with the immune system not being able to fight off the virus? Is there any connection between getting warts and CFS? Could IVIG treatment for immune deficiency also help prevent or fight off warts?

    If my memory serves me well, warts are from viruses. think genital warts (yuck!). Not familiar with IVIG treatment.

    Yes when I looked it up it says they are from viruses and are contagious which I never knew. IVIG is treatment with some blood product for those who are deficient in some immune factors in their blood (something like that). I read many carry the virus for warts but only some get actual warts, usually those with weaker immune systems. I wasn't sure if those with CFS are more susceptible because of that.

    not all warts are form viruses Ocean; I have seen warts listed as an EDS symptom only once so unveriffied symptom ried but I had a few on my hands removed over the years.

    the non-contagious ones i have are called senile veruccas and they are tottaly flat - like a cell divided into 4 but asthey multiplly ift gives a wrinked effect on the skin fomr them all.
    They are on my hands, forearms, calves - sunexposed areas and also on my upper thighs which rarely get sun exposure


    looking into seeing if they are really EDS symptoms or not - makes sense that they would be.

    cheers,

    Warts are only caused by various types of HPV (human papilloma virus) which target skin tissue. So warts reappearing might be connected with ME due to latent infections becoming active as a result of immune dysfunction.

    EDS is a genetic connective tissue disorder, so there'd be little or no connection between warts and EDS.

    I've got two small warts on my hand. I have been wondering the same thing about ME/CFS and the immune system - I suspect there is a link.
