  1. It was on the 12th of August, 2015 when I realized or had my first out break. Few days before that day (August 12th), I went to a friends birthday party, I had so much alcohol, I was happy then I met this girl, she was kinda alone and me! Feeling like a superstar wanted to cheer her up. So we talked and I gave her some alcohol, she was so much excited and we danced, hugged and even cuddled while dancing. Then she told me she was tired she needed to seat she asked if we could take a walk away from the party. Whom am I to say no, after all she is very pretty and sexy, I took her to a nearby uncompleted building, she asked if she could smoke? I said yes sure feel free. She smoked we had some more drinks, then it happened. We had unprotected sex in that building, although I deed the withdrawal method, hoping and feeling everything is ok. To cut short the story, I started noticing some bumps like objects on and around my penis. To be honest, I was so scared there was nothing that didn't Cross my mind including HIV. I browsed the net for clues or similar symptoms, I became all the more confused. The out break and symptoms lingered for weeks, on the 4th of October I summoned the courage to see a doctor, he examined me and suggested a couple of test. I ran the tests and it was confirmed, I had been infected with Herpes Virus. He then prescribed some drugs for me, which I bought and took according to the prescription. 1 and 1/2 weeks later the symptoms cleared and the itching stopped, I took the complete dose just to be sure and it seems like all was ok. By the end of November I noticed a fresh out break again, I went back the doctor he asked me to buy the same and continue the medication, he added that that's herpes for you, just when you think they are gone, they reappear. While taking the drugs the doctor adviced me to avoid alcohol and other substance that may weaken my immune system, it then means I was also suffering from weak or low immune system because as at when I did the test, my white blood cell count was 5700 it was a bit low. This means I had to take my drugs regularly to keep the out break away. To sum up my story, I travelled to the village on the 23rd of December for a burial arrangement. In the course of the event I was discussing with my uncle then I opened up to him and shared my experience. That was when he mentioned moringa leaf and seeds to me, he went into his house brought out a small plastic can filled with moringa seeds, he said I should eat about 4 to 5 seeds three times a day, then take about 3 ounces of dried moringa leave add to a kettle and boil, after boiling I should just drink it like a normal green tea. I spent my remaing days of the festive season in the village, while taking my moringa seeds and tea. I returned to the city with a hand full of seeds and leaves and continued my moringa therapy for the next 3 months. On the first week of April 2016 I decided to take another test, the test result came out and this time my white blood cell count was 8600, although the HSV is still there but I haven't noticed or had any out breaks since I started taking the moringa seeds and leaf. Today is the 27th of July, 2018 and I am glad to say that I havent noticed any out breaks since then and I have not been taking any HSV drugs as well. more so, I am proud to say that I am a father to a lovely beautiful baby girl. Although at first I was scared if my girl friend had been infected because I didn't have the nerves to tell her and she was begining to get upset of my frequent use of condoms. So I stopped using the condoms and we had intercourse, and the result is a lovely beautiful baby girl, while we were at the hospital I requested that a test be carried out on her, LO and BEHOLD she was and is still HSV negetive. So my dear lovely people, please don't beat yourself over this, it is most certainly not the end of anything in your life, all you guys need to do is boost your immune system naturally to fight the virus from the inside. Anywhere you find yourselves, please kindly look for moringa seeds and leaf, chew at least 4-5 seeds a day and if you can get the leaf, take two cups of the tea in the morning and two cups in the evening and all will be well with you. Thank you all, remain bless hendrick.laama@gmail.com
  2. Looks like there is now a site that's in English selling Amenalief (amenamevir) for the rock bottom price of about $95.43 USD a day. ($668 shipped for 14 x 200mg pills at 400mg/ daily dose). Amenalief is one of the helicase primase-inhibitor class of drugs that has been around for the better part of a couple decades, but has just recently made it to market in Japan. Pritelivir is also a member of this drug class. For those that have less than stellar results from current antivirals, helicase primase-inhibitors are likely to offer a relatively impressive improvement in quality of life assuming you can afford the ongoign cost of using them suppressively (needless to say they are NOT a cure). As a side note, the FDA blocked further testing of Pritelivir back in 2013, so in case you're wondering why you cannot buy this class of drugs as a consumer at your local pharmacy for a more reasonable price using your prescription drug plan, you owe a large thanks to the FDA for your being forced to weight your physical and emotional HSV-related damages against the cost of this treatment. If anyone out there is independently wealthy, willing to order an antiviral drug from a Japanese company, and would be so kind as to report back with their experiences taking Amenalief suppressively, I'm sure many of your fellow sufferers would be extremely thankful! https://www.mimaki-family-japan.com/item/detail?item_prefix=TF&item_code=705711&item_branch=001

  7. Hi. First of all, let me explain... I have been in a relationship with my partner for 28 years. For the past three years, I have been living in Spain and working. - still contibuting to the house, and my youngest son is enjoying a free private education because of my benefits at school. In the past my partner has used sex as a weapon - meaning that he refuses me - for the last 15 years as a kind of punishment for me getting pregnant with our youngest who is nearly 17. He loves my kids to bits, but I went through major depression as a result of emotional blackmail and pressures at work. However, even though he doesn't admit it, he was having major anxiety and depression in his business. So, I get it, but only to a point. For my kids, I have stayed with him. Recently, I have connected with someone and have agreed a kind of sexual arrangement where we will meet once a week- He doesn't want a relationship as his wife has seriously just cheated on him. Even in the last three years that I have separated from my partner, I still remained true. But, I have found things difficult. So, yesterday, We had our first hook up yesterday, and have planned to hook up not seeing anyone else, unless arranged together. However, this morning I started to see the signs of a cold sore. They were not visible before. Should I be worried?
  8. Any chronic cold sore sufferers? I need some advice on how you have dealt with this emotionally and anything that has helped treat or prevent outbreaks

    Gave to Boyfriend

    Some background before I explain- I have not been formally diagnosed with herpes but I do get cold sores. It's been at least 2 years since my last one and since my life is very fast paced it's always the last thing on my mind. So when I got into my current relationship I had totally forgotten that I actually get them. My current issue is that I didn't realize I was getting a cold sore because I recently changed acne treatments and disregarded the tingling sensation as a reaction. I gave my boyfriend oral sex and that night after work saw what has now become a sore. I was up till midnight looking up all the research I could and type 1 can effect genitalia. So long story short I probably gave it to him and I feel like crap to the point where I think he should breakup with me. And he thought it was curable(he grew up in a bubble) which makes me feel even worse. I know it's not the worst STD out there which is putting my mind at rest a tiny bit but I still feel like a terrible person and a walking plague sack.

    Scar help

    Hi all, I had an outbreak during Christmas and while it was within the blistering/healing stages. I had accidentally wiped it off - causing the healing to start all over again. Normally when it accidentally peels off it heals without any scars. This time it has left a red mark where the outbreak occurred. it has now been 4 months. I have been applying coconut oil and chapstick and need a solution as I don't see it getting any better. I try to use cover up when out in public because it's just embarrassing. Anyone else dealing with this? What are you using? I tried Maderma but it has this itchy feeling and I don't want to cause paranoia of an outbreak coming on again. The dermatologist said it is just redness that can fade over time. Thinking I may need a second opinion?
  11. is this herpes ? last time i had sex was 3 years ago and i never noticed any symptoms like described in multiple forums , about 2 months ago i noticed this and i do not know since when its there , under my penis head are also sores or idk what they are, they feel small and hard you can see them in the picture , they neither hurt nor itch , in my country there is no specialist for this i consulted a doctor they sent me to a skin doctor i will visit him tomorrow , i am prepared that i have herpes i just wanted to ask you guys what you think about this and also they said that there is no specific blood test for HSV where i come from so i am lost
  12. Hi guys, so I’m relatively new to this site and to the Herpes virus itself. I was just diagnosed with HSV-2 about 3 weeks ago and suffered from an excruciating primary outbreak. I was in so much pain and had no idea how to manage it or my symptoms, aside from taking my prescribed antivirals. I couldn’t walk for days, instead I waddled around my house like a pregnant woman. It was so painful to pee I would literally sob and pace in front of my bathroom for 20mins before I got the courage to even sit on the toilet. I was miserable and the only comfort I found was in prescription pain meds. I searched everywhere online for ways to speed up the healing process and relieve my symptoms before I went insane. I found very little, just a few tips on how not to scratch your sores and wear cotton underwear. Annoyingly unhelpful tips. It took a bit of trial and error, reading dozens of medical articles on Herpes and the biology of ulcerated cold sores, but I finally figured out a regimen that healed my sores (and restored my sanity) in about 4 days. So, I’m sharing this in hopes it will help someone suffering from their first outbreak of genital herpes. I’m not a medical professional, this is just what worked for me. I consulted my doctor before trying any of this and she confirmed it all to be safe. First, and this may seem obvious, but stop shaving/waxing. Let it grow, it’s okay. And go commando as often as you can. I didn’t wear panties for a week. It was actually pretty liberating. Go to your local Walgreens and buy a couple boxes of the Aveeno active naturals soothing bath treatment with 100% natural colloidal oatmeal. Mix a packet of this stuff in a hot bath and soak. Make the water as hot as you can stand it. I would soak for an hour a day, twice a day. This soothes the inflammation and itchiness like nothing else. It also cleanses and moisturizes your skin so, ya know, win-win. Also, whenever I had to pee (I would wait until my bladder was about to explode) I would fill up the tub with again the hottest water I could stand and kneel in it, don’t squat. Then I’d pee. Instant relief. First time I tried it, I bit down on a hand towel just in case I needed to scream. Just a precaution if you have nervous neighbors. I washed my genital area with only Dove’s sensitive skin body wash. The bar soap works fine as well. Use a baby washcloth (they’re softer) and gently wash every part of your vaginal area. Between your labia, sides of the vulva, vaginal opening, perineum, and between your cheeks. Rinse and repeat as needed. This cut down on my discharge and deminished the smell as well. It’s a gentle formula with no dyes, fragrances, or sulfates and it’s hypoallergenic so it won’t further irritate your already pissed off skin. Now this was the game changer. You need to disinfect the area to help your sores heal. Listen. Hydrogen peroxide and 10% povidone-iodine. I read in a medical article that this healed genital cold sores faster than acyclovir cream, which just set my labia on fire. I would take about half a cup of hydrogen peroxide and mix equal parts of warm water to dilute. Make sure the water is warm, you’ll love it. Take a cotton pad and saturate it well, then dab away. I had sores on the sides of my labia, around my clitoris, and along my perineum so I concentrated my dabbing on these areas. Do this a few times, then let it air dry. Then I would take a q-tip dipped in the solution, place it on a sore, and rotate it. This helped with lifting that nasty, pus-filled core out of the sore. But do it gently. After that, I would pretty much do the same thing with the iodine. Iodine is an amazing antiseptic so use it generously. I would apply about 3 layers and let it air dry. Be carefu because it will stain surfaces and skin. I used a glove when applying. You can get all this stuff from your local pharmacy or Walmart, Target, etc. When I started this regimen, it only took 3 days for all of my sores to lose their gross centers and become pink and healthy looking. By the 4th day, I had no more soreness, no discharge, no itchiness, and my sores had almost closed completely. And of course I was taking my antivirals twice a day as prescribed. I know it’s not much, but it really did make a difference in my healing process. After about 8-9 days of doing this every day, twice a day, including the baths, all of the infected skin had healed and my culture swabs came back clean. I am now on suppressive antivirals, but I only take them when I feel that horrible tingle and itch (which is not often). After speaking with my doctor about natural ways to manage the virus, I got in touch with a local herbalist who pointed me in the direction of a number of herbal supplements that hinder the intensity of the virus on your system. I am taking L-lysine tablets twice a day, 1000mg, and Astragalus capsules, also twice a day, 1000mg. If you’d like to go the natural route with managing/preventing your outbreaks I would definitely recommend these. Sorry for the length, but I hope this helps! - A

    Gave my Fiancee Cold Sores

    Well, thanks to me and my childhood virus, my fiancee has contracted HSV-1. He just went on Vatrex, 1MG, but it seems we can't escape the "red flare ups", which eventually go away and never turn in to any sore. It has pretty much ruined his life, and something that I thought was "manageable" has now turned into complete hysteria and panic, and emotional distress for the both of us. A. I never used to think they were THAT big of a deal- other than the tragedies of missing birthdays, ect. B. Now he is SO stressed about them, which makes me feel eternally guilty and he says he is suicidal. Great feeling 3 months before your wedding. Help?
  14. I just had my first cold sore. My wife is really really sensitive about hygiene and disease etc. We are planning on having another child and she is terrified of contracting and passing on the virus. She says after my cold sore has disappeared we still have to wait at least 3 weeks until I can stop washing and quarantining everything I touch and before she will think about kissing me again. And even then, we have to kiss carefully, not too much tongue. And knowing that I could be shedding in the future at any time without warning symptoms, I know she is going to be constantly thinking and worrying about it. I mean no offense to people with genital herpes or serious illnesses, but this is devastating to me. I love intimate physical contact and I feel like our relationship has changed forever and will never be the same. She is completely set in her way of thinking and will never change or relax. I would appreciate any advice or similar experiences shared. Thanks.

    Herpes Simplex

    I have been diagnosed by scraping of herpes simplex ( cold sores) on my should and scalp. I couldn’t believe the labs result. But there it is!
  16. Saw “Downsizing” this weekend. It’s the new Matt Damon movie. Toward the end (no spoilers— don’t worry), an important scientist in the movie introduces a young man who was the first baby born in the downsized world. The young man smiles and he has a huge, red, glistening cold sore on his lip. From the audience in the theatre, it was mostly silence. But I heard a few snickers, a few laughs, and a few groans. My boyfriend, who I had just told of my new HSV-1 diagnosis (and he is my giver but he denies it), leaned to my ear and said, “He’s got the Herpes,” loud enough for the people around us to hear. At least he didn’t say, “He’s got YOUR Herpes.” https://youtu.be/QKEPCcPVrx0
  17. I am really pissed off that my partner's mum kissed me on the cheek twice with a healing cold sore. Here we all are on this forum trying to educate ourselves as much as possible about this virus, agonising over how to protect partners, and even debating whether we can embark on a relationship ever again and yet this person with a cold sore is so ignorant and uneducated that they will put someone else at risk by initiating skin to skin contact with an active infection. I know she probably thinks nothing on it and almost certainly has no knowledge of asymptomatic shedding, but surely the very least she could do is be mindful of contact with people while she has a full blown sore. I don't care that oral hsv1 is very common. I already have hsv2 and don't want hsv1 as well (yes I have heard that it's hard to get hsv1 with a preexisting hsv2 infection but she doesn't know what I have or don't have. Perhaps it's irrational given the fact it was only my cheek. But it's the lack of thought that incenses me, while I have stressed over this every day since getting it.
  18. I’m not promoting this product in any form to benefit myself. I was talking to a friend who is in medical school currently here and there is some research and experimentation going on regarding treatments for OHSV-1 in the virology lab as well as the dental school. One of the dental professors tried to use a green tea extract on one of his patients and it worked so well that he came up with this ointment, which they seem to frequently use to treat patients here who have cold sores and it has shown to be very effective. If anyone wants to try AverTeaX here is the link for it: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AXA5FYI/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_sW48zbHWNWWVW
  19. Is thia herpes? I notice this for a week after suspected exposure. (Kissing) or am I overthinking? my lips sometimes itch but the white spots doesnt hurt.
  20. Can hsv be spread by kissing someone on the neck while having a coldsore? Does there have to be a cut on the neck in order for this to happen?
  21. Soooo I messed up. I applied some coconut to my cold sore and didn’t wash my hands. Then I proceeded to get dressed for work. Now I’m wondering, if I touched my vagina while I was getting dressed (like tucking in my shirt or something) could I have transmitted the disease to my genitals? Or would the coconut oil have killed the virus that was on my fingertips? I do have anxiety and cannot stop thinking about the possibility of transmitting HSV1 to my genitals. I know I should have washed my hands immediately and I realize that I messed up. Please help. Quote Edit
  22. Hey everyone, so I have a relative (no names obviously) and about 4 days ago, I shared a drink from the same bottle with this relative of mine, however my relative didn't disclose to me that he/she has herpes and possibly HIV until recently, this relative also has herpes zoster (blisters) on the thighs, I might be over-reacting but I have a little itchy sensation around my body (just a little) and a little sore on my tongue. Could I have contracted herpes by any chance? also what measures can I take now to be sure that I don't have this condition? do I take a test? are the vitamins / supplement I should take for the time being? I might be over-reacting but I would appreciate some suggestions.

    Incubation period oral

    Is it possible to develop oral herpes symptoms 45 days after unprotected oral sex? I developed a sore throats which tested negative of strep 45 days after and the bumps are still in the back of my throats and they get inflamed on and off? It was burning of the lips and throats tightness the first day which I thought was from eating too much pineapple... then I got hit with Pharangytis the next couple days after....also I had pimples above my lip not on my lip

    A new-found gem

    Hi everyone, I'm new to the site, but I wanted to let people know about something amazing that I found some time ago on Amazon. It's a treatment called Salubrex, and it works wonders! I tried it on my cold sore, and it cleared up faster than anything else I've eve tried in my life. I can't tell you how happy it's made me to know that I've finally found something that gets rid of my cold sores fast. But here's the best part. After it worked so well on my lip when I got a cold sore, I tried it out on my HSV2 outbreak the next time one came up. No kidding, it worked on that too. I just wanted to share this with people since it worked so well for me.
