  1. Hello world! I had my first HSV2 outbreak 8 years ago. The first one is the worst -- the actual outbreak hurts like hell. The outbreak itself was very tiny and localized in a small genital area. However It came with side effects I didn't expect like an acute and intense tingling sensation in my lower back, buttocks, and spread down to my feet/toes. Fast forward years. I rarely get actual outbreaks if ever. But I do experience that intense nerve pain I remember that comes before an outbreak manifests as a skin lesion. So now the outbreaks don't happen, but the prodrome pre-tingles happen often. Except now those piercing sharp tingles aren't just perceptible in the aforementioned areas. I feel it all over my body intermittently - neck, shoulders, arm, yes leg and lower back, foot, etc.. To emphasize, I never experienced any chronic pain remotely similar to "herpes tingles" pre- first HSV 2 outbreak. Several Questions: Does this pain sound familiar to you? Has it migrated outside of where it was when you first had an outbreak? When I bring this up to multiple doctors, I'm baffled that they have no idea what I'm talking about. Or don't see the connection between the nerve(?) /lymph node (?) pain / neuralgia/ paresthesia and HSV. Every time I see a "Lyrica" commercial for fibromyalgia I think to myself, "well this is fucking it. this is what I'm feeling/experiencing in my body." Is there a link between fibromyalgia and herpes? I wonder how many patients diagnosed with fibromyalgia have either HSV 1/ HSV 2/ shingles/ varicella-zoster viruses or something related? It seems to me there is a there there. But I also feel I'm being gas lit by the world and that in general researchers / HCPs are too "embarrassed" to even commit to research around the "not talked about" symptoms of HSV; or even HSV in general. How can herpes be so "common" and yet not a single medical professional is conversant in the totality of the disease or specializing in it? >_< Not related, but where can I purchase acyclovir cream? That stuff is like contraband in the USA lol. ugh this country sucks in this arena.

    Genital HSV1 scare

    Hi everyone, I’m new to this forum but have asked similar questions on medhelp and to Terri Warren via her website. I’m wondering if anyone can help me with these symptoms that I’m having. This is my story— it’s a long one. I’ve never had any kind of sex until the end of September 2017 when someone performed unprotected oral sex on me once for 2 minutes. I later learned he has had around 50 partners but he claims he has never had a cold sore. -End of November experienced itchy patch on inner thigh that later scabbed over. Never had fluid in it. Currently experiencing similar itch on ribs. Before and after images of my thigh below. It has completely healed now. -Start of December intense burning/tugging feeling of pubic hair began when touched. Dermatologist did biopsy, found that my “skin flared up” and said it was hyper dermatographia although odd that it was only in that area. Recommended allergy medication but didn’t work. Also tried fungal creams, polysporin, steroid creams. Started to feel much better once I shaved. Still have irritation but not as bad as before, especially worse when wearing tight clothes. Sometimes small red specks of irritation are visible but usually doesn’t look like anything. (See third photo) -Also start of December, Buttocks turns red and feels irritated when sitting, only to totally disappear once I stand up. Still happening. Mostly just on left side, a big patch flares up. -mild fever for 2 days with congestion mid Jan (could have just been the flu). Accompanied by a lot of watery discharge that continued until I got my period Feb 2 (odd black and chunky period). Discharge started back up after period ended and still happening now. Experienced headaches and back pain while on period, unusual for me -had a swab of itchy area with no lesions, negative but it wasn’t a PCR so probably useless -had small spot swabbed 6 days after appearance, negative. (Fourth picture) Maybe just an infected hair... didn’t burst or scab over really and stayed for about a month which is too long to be herpes. Had other areas swabbed, need to check with the clinic to see if this was a PCR or not. -two small blister type spots, disappeared after a couple of days. (5th picture is before, 6 is after). Never burst or scabbed, just kind of “peeled”. -Slight burning feeling in vaginal opening a few weeks ago -fatigue since period Tested for all STDs multiple times, HerpeSelect IGG blood test done at 9 weeks and 19 weeks, negative for HSV 1 & 2. Also did a combined IGG test at 16 weeks that was negative. Had bacterial swabs, urine tests… all normal. What’s been really bothering me these past couple of weeks is the watery discharge that won’t stop and the nerve pain that gets worse at night. When I lie in bed I can feel it from my belly button down to my knees mostly but also in other areas at times (felt I slightly on my arms last night, a bit on upper back, lower back) I realize my encounter was low risk, I’m having atypical symptoms, and my tests have been negative... everyone is telling me I’m absolutely crazy and needn’t to move on with me life but I can’t. I found a clinic in San Diego that does the Western Blot and am wondering if I should do it since Terri Warren says 30% of HSV 1 is missed through IGG tests. Am I being ridiculous? I started having extreme stress about my health after I saw the patch on my thigh in November and slowly the symptoms have been racking on. Could I be doing this to myself through stress? Thank you for any help!!

    I need help.

    I was recently diagnosed with HSV 1 a week ago and the emotional strain has been horrible. I’m the type of person who hates the unknown, so I’m trying to figure out if I have it genitally or orally. I had sex with someone who has been tested for herpes, but he doesn’t remember which strain he has. He hasn’t had an outbreak in years and has taken medicine, so my doctor initially said the chance was extremely low that he gave it to me (especially because it was only for about 1 min and that was it.) I get mouth ulcers regularly and I also get what I believe is a cold sore right in the corner of my mouth (which I’ve read isn’t a real cold sore?) so I’m wondering if that’s why I tested positive. We had sex a month and a half ago, and the symptoms started about a week and a half ago. Burning while peeing, and the occasional itching. When my doctor looked (she also did a Pap smear) she said she saw no lesions which I took as a good sign. I’ve been taking Valtrex for 5 days now but my symptoms haven’t improved at all. I just need people to talk to who know how I’m feeling. Thank you all
  4. Hi. We all know that in theory it usually takes 12-16 weeks (sometimes up to 24 weeks) to get positive IGG blood test for HSV2. What are your personal experiences of testing positive for HSV2, i.e. time since exposure? And IGG score? Can you also state if you had HSV1 (oral or genital) and took any Antivirals prior to IGG testing? TQ
  5. Approximately 5 years ago a girl gave me a peck on the lips, I wiped my lips off. The next morning I woke up with a painful rash all over my top lip that dried up and resulted in chapped lips, where the skin died and regenerated. No pus or obvious cold sore. I have had this same outbreak approximately once a year in the same place except for this year where I have had it almost continuously, I have been very stressed. I went to the doctor who says it isn't cold sores (I have to wait 2 weeks for a blood test), however I have found someone ( To those with oral HSV2 only by Penumbra,) who tested positive for HSV2 by blood test with my EXACT symptoms. Before an outbreak, my lip/nose area is tingling a lot and I feel a strong twitching in my lip. Is it possible that I have mild cold sores? I would greatly appreciate any help
  6. Hello everyone, This is my first post here. I was reading already a lot in this forum. I need some help or some support from you guys who have much longer experience with herpes than me. I caught genital herpes HSV2 around May 2016 last year with a typical initial outbreak pretty obvious. I just used Aciclovir Cream for my initial outbreak, which probably lasted like 2 weeks. Since then I have had around 15 outbreaks in the last year. almost ever 2 weeks. Usually my outbreaks were less severe, always appearing at different spots but mostly in my shaft area, sometimes left sometimes right side. I would treat it with some tea tree oil or other oils or Manuka Honey and after 1 week it would disappear and I was able to have a pretty normal sex life with protection of course. (when having a coming outbreak I was avoiding sex). Now my real problem: About 2 Months go I started getting some pain on my glans (the tip of my penis) where usually i did not have any symptoms before (I am Circumcised by the way) especially when its erected. This pain got more and more. and I started getting also burning sensations on my glans and sometimes itching, it itches more after urinating. Then from time to time I got burning in my urethra. Also my glans doesn't look how it used to look like. There is no obvious herpes lesion on my glans like usually in the shaft area. no proper breakout, no wetness, no big red dot. It is just in general red and some parts look like they have a different color (little red, some like have more brighter color, like if some insect bite me their, light 3mm big circle at the edge of my glans, the ring). I have this constant pain and weird colorization on my glans for already about 2 months. I went to 3 different urologists, they say it looks pretty normal, but without really looking on it properly (even the light in their room is not proper bright). I got prescribed Valtrex from one of the urologists, and I am taking it 2 times a day for almost 3 weeks now, but the symptoms do not get better. I also did a urine test testing for STDs like chlamydia etc and that test was negative. I asked the doctor if it could be yeast infection, and they believe it is not and they just tell me to relax and see what happens. But my pain is not getting better, my glans doesn't look like before, its constantly red and swollen and also it itches. What is this, and when does it get better and how? I also tried to apply some aciclovir Cream from time to time, but it did not help. Can someone help me or has any idea if that is normal and what the solution is for that. If I would have typical outbreaks like before, I would be at least able to identify it, but this constant no ending symptoms make me crazy and psychologically unstable. I am constantly stressed because of that. I am also taking nowadays, Oregano oil pills, Vitamin D3, Vitamin B complex, Vitamin C, Lyssine, Zinc. It all does not help and it doesn't get better. I can't wait for your answers, and I am thanking in front. Good that this forum exists.

    Does herpes cause vaginal dryness?

    I just got diagnoed about a month ago, & before i got diagnosed, i would masturbate all the time with no problem. Now when i masturbate, i have trouble getting wet. Is my vaginal dryness caused by the virus?
  8. So five weeks ago I had a stupid drunken encounter with a girl from a bar I was at. She straddled me and kissed me and eventually there was brief penetration, maybe less than 10 seconds, underneath her dress. There was also some fondling. Once I realized how stupid I was being I stopped and when I went to zip up I realized there was blood and mucus from her period on me. I immediately freaked out thinking STDs and HIV! Three days later as I was going to get into the shower some white discharge came out of my penis. My penis began to burn and I started having frequent urination. I also had a slimy feeling in my anus. I waited a few days while this continued before going and getting tested for gonorrhea and chlamydia at nine days post exposure. All came back clear. About a week after this started, and 10 days post exposure, I became very dizzy in a group setting and almost couldn't speak. I almost passed out but gathered myself and a few moments later had some buzzing feeling in my butt. When I got home I had developed some red bumps on my butt. I have some acne in the area already so I wasn't sure about this. They hurt but we're not terribly sore. They could not be squeezed but scabbed over after a couple of days and went away. The next morning I woke up with swollen tonsils and a swollen uvula. My throat was not sore however. I went to the doctor and he looked at the bumps on my butt and said that he thought it was a heat rash or acne. He swabbed my throat for strep and it was negative. I told him about my concern of HsV2 and he prescribed Acyclovir 3×400 mg per day. He doubted that I had anything to worry about with the bumps but said Acyclovir would not hurt anything if I turn out to be negative. I went and finished the STD panel the next day about two weeks out for HIV DNA PCR, hepatitis, HSV one and two, and syphalis. All came back negative. I know that it was too early for a definitive HSV test but better negative than not. A few days later after starting the Acyclovir I got a bump on my upper lip near the skin line. I thought it was a pimple or ingrown hair so I squeezed it and just clear liquid and blood came out. It scabbed over and went away in a few days. I also felt some swelling and soreness under the inside of my lip but never really developed a sore. A three weeks post exposure and still having burning on my penis, frequent urination, and burning in my anus with mucus discharge I went back to the doctor. He did a prostate exam where my prostate was very sensitive to the touch. He diagnosed me with prostatitis and prescribe me Lexofloxacin. I also convinced him to refill my Acyclovir. He thinks my issues are anxiety related and prostatitis. I could not handle the Lexofoxacin after three days and stopped using it. It was making me exhausted. At around four weeks post exposure the burning on my penis and frequent urination subsided. Now at 5 weeks I still have burning in my anus and mucus discharge. I also have developed back pain neck stiffness slight headaches and twitching in my left eye. My vision is also somewhat blurry. Is it really possible that I have all of these symptoms, including some of the rarest ones for HSV2? Before this I just had a physical and was really healthy. I'm getting tested again next week at 6 weeks but can someone tell me if it's really possible that all these symptoms came and are lasting this long after such a brief exposure?!? Help!

    Please help I’m worried

    Hello everyone I’m 16 almost 17 and a couple weeks ago I had a patch on my face that I thought was herpes it looked like it a little but I didn’t know It didn’t hurt or itch or anything. It finally went away but now weeks later my one part of my gum is a little swollen and my eye lid is a little swollen. I’m really scared they don’t itch or anything. My eye has a little reb mark at the corner or my eye lid. I just am scared I don’t know what having heroes would mean for me. But anyway any thoughts
  10. To give a summary: My last sexual encounter besides my current girlfriend of a few months was at Christmas (unprotected oral and genital) with a female. In May I had for the first time a flare up in my genital area (penis on the side and at the base and on scrotum), where the skin was itchy and red and my penis was sore with a singular tiny red spot on the shaft . These symptoms lasted 4 weeks at which time I tried using cream and tablets for thrush as that was what my GP thought it was which didnt work. I showed pictures to a lady at the gum glinic after I managed to get an appointment as at that point my symptoms had gone, she said she didnt think it was anything to worry about and I tested negative for all stds (excluding herpes which at the time I didn't know they dont test for unless syptoms are present). I thought it was nothing to worry about then and since forgot about it. I however have had the same symptoms come back again on Sunday night with a single red spot on my penis shaft which went away after a few days but my penis still feels somewhat sore and the skin around the side of my penis itches and on my scrotum. I have no lesions or sores that have burst open or have any liquid in and have never had a coldsore in my life, I am worried this is non typical symptoms of a herpes infection and bought over the counter aciclovir cream and tablets from an online chemist to try and treat it myself until I can get another appointment at the gum clinic. I now have a girlfriend who has never had any symptoms of anything at all and I am worried and scared I may have given her the infection if it is herpes due to the fact we have sex without the use of condoms. 1. Does this sound like it could be symptomatic of herpes? 2. Is this likely based on the fact the same syptoms have re-occured or could it be something else? (Apologies I cannot upload the photos as they are too large for the limit on this website) Thank you.
  11. So I went to the doctor about a month ago. He said it doesn't look like herpies . Said it wasn't anything that should worry me . But it still hasn't went away . I have one main partner (GF) don't think she'd ever cheat. N one girl who I cheat with but haven't been with in like a month or 2 tryna clean up my act . They both seem to think their clean, n both say their only fucking me . Yes I know they could be lying . So I'm just here, does it look like herpies ? Nothing ever popped , never hurts, aren't sores. Just little bumps that seem like dry pimples.
  12. Hi everyone, I recently had unprotected sex with a girl, the day after I noticed my penis glans was red and sore. Since that my glans has cracks and is still slightly red, I get an occasional itchy glans. Just wondered if you could help me. Photos of my penis will be attached .Thank you
  13. I was dating this guy who has genital hsv2 like me. He thinks that he got hsv2 on his nose from going down on me. It got really bad and had a lot of puzz. The docotr said that they could not be sure that it was herpes because more than 48 hours had passed after he got the outbreaks and swab tests would be unreliable(Never heard that before) I started doing my research based on his symptoms and found out that it can be a staph resistant to antibiotics infection too. I wounder if anyone has had this experience before? How often can you find staph and herpes at the same time?
  14. Dear all, first of, i’m thankful I found this website. I’ve been diagnosed with genital warts a few months back since April and it hasn’t been pleasant. As I was doing my treatment for genital warts, immediately as I went home I realised some small bumps which then immediately turned into huge yellow ulcers that really hurts like shit. Hence I went back to my doctor the next day and she was surprised as well, 1. Is there a chance of contacting genital herpes from oral sex? 2. I do not have any blisters Nor rashes but these sores does hurts and pee-ing is just terrible, it burns so much. 3. How do one survive with being diagosed with herpes? 4. Any chances of soothing the huge sores that i’ve have? 5. I’ve been given some anti-vira medication, any idea how Long does the outbreak takes? 6. Does that means there’ll be no more unprotected sex from now on as I might pass this virus to my partner? 7. Pretty sure I’ve gotten it from this Australian guy, but I haven’t been able to tell him to go for a check up and all. Please feel free to give me suggestions and ideas on this thread as i’m In a lost now and have completely no idea what’s the next step. I can’t seem to upload the photos of the sore here, so if anyone could help, please let me know as i’m Desperate to clear the pain.

    Sex after ob

    Hi, i have seen some posts on this. But thought i would ask. I think i may be having an ob. I started the anti virals. I have hsv 2. If i am ,how long is it safe for my body to wait to have sex. ?And to have it less contagious for the guy im seeing. There isnt anything that visable when i get an ob but its very sore so i know its happening. Should i wait two weeks ? Or if i feel better its ok? Let me know your thoughts please.
  16. A good compilation of ongoing clinical trials for herpes is on this website: https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/results?recrs=ab&amp;cond=Herpes+Simplex&amp;term=&amp;cntry=&amp;state=&amp;city=&amp;dist= I also like this site for an idea of what's currently being funded by the NIH/NIAID. You can also view all of their publications on HSV: https://projectreporter.nih.gov/reporter_searchresults.cfm
  17. https://imgur.com/a/Wj2dETS Hi all, about 2 days ago I started to feel intense pain on my labia majora, looked down and saw 2 rather large open sores( 1 on either side). The pus (normal looking yellow) from the sores have stopped this morning. A day later, there was a blister that formed in my pubic area. In addition to this, there is skin shedding whenever I wipe after a pee ( it doesn't hurt when I urinate, I don't have a fever). My only sexual activity has been with a virgin and it was oral (started April 27th and ended June 8th). I've never seen a cold sore on this guy's mouth so I am unsure of what it could be. I'm on holiday for the next 2 days in a humid tropical country (indonesia, where the hygeine levels are appalling) so I don't know if the climate (dust, shower water) could have irritated the skin, as I've been here for 2.5 weeks already. I have been sweating excessively and I forget to immediately take off my sweaty clothes after a day out. Could that be the cause? Somebody please help this is urgent.
  18. Sanguine108 believed in St John's wort combo therapy and I was looking for elements/actions that would give me everything to punch HSV2 from many angles and give me- 1. body that was alkaline since hsv loves an acid anaerobic environment. Apple cider vinegar or lemon/lime water minus an overload of carbs. Possibly Keto like Bethany. Fulvic Acid (thanks JxC) to keep it alkaline and get the much-needed minerals entering at a cellular level. 2. To build the immune system, I was short on DHEA. I will probably look into boosting immune system with the correct amount of vitamin A, B complex, E, zinc picolinate /quality zinc do not ingest zinc oxide, Iodine, extra vitamin D, 4000iu , extra Vit C possible liposomal ( or make your own because liposomal C and glutathione is so pricey) unless you take it to bowel tolerance, minerals like boron, magnesium citrate, (unless you want the Hershey squirts) Ashwagandha powder (1t) to get the thyroid humming perfectly, and Glutathione immunity booster, it is involved all our cells and our number one antioxidant. Take them as directed more is not better especially vit A 9 ways to boost glutathione https://draxe.com/glutathione/ 3. dissolving the lipid coating of HSV 2 with St. John's wort and BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene), an FDA-approved food preservative - I have only been using it for a week. Book -http://www.projectwellbeing.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/BHTbook-StevenWmFowkes-100903.pdf less than a gram/1000mg (more is not better) because it is less expensive or a combo of Brand-Lauricidin/ monolaurin on a lower dose because it is costly. https://www.westonaprice.org/health-topics/ask-the-doctor/herpes/ ... "Regarding the natural treatment of herpes infection, we can take advantage of the characteristics of the virus to impact its tendency to erupt. Since the virus is essentially a piece of DNA surrounded by a fatty layer, if we target this aspect we can largely “disable” the virus. Luckily, we have two substances which are known to target this tendency of the virus. First, the herb Hypericum perforatum, commonly known as St. John’s wort, contains a chemical called hypericin. It is hypericin that gives the red color to the oil glands in the leaves, and it is hypericin that selectively targets the lipid capsule of viruses. For centuries, physicians have valued St. John’s wort as a nervine, meaning a medicine that targets the nervous system. Thus practitioners have traditionally used St. John’s wort to treat depression and toothache. Remember that the nervous system consists largely of cells with fatty coatings, similar to the encapsulated viruses. The plant in its wisdom contains the active chemical hypericin in an oily base, and because oil only dissolves in oil, it penetrates the oily tissues of the body, that is, the nerve cells, where hypericin then dissolves the lipid coating of the virus. (wow, heavy claim) I generally prefer Mediherb herbal products because of their potency. The dose is two tablets twice per day, even for the very long term. I did not get that exact brand. The second characteristic takes advantage of the virus-disabling effect of lauric acid, the 12-carbon fatty acid found in breast milk fat and in coconut oil. Thanks to the work of Mary Enig, readers of this journal are familiar with the anti-microbial benefits of lauric acid and other short- and medium-chain fatty acids found in coconut oil. During digestion, the body breaks triglycerides (three fatty acids joined to a glycerol molecule) into di-glycerides (two fatty acids joined to a glycerol molecule), monoglycerides (one fatty acid joined to a glycerol molecule) and free fatty acids. It is the monoglycerol of lauric acid, called monolaurin, that has the strongest anti-microbial effects. For years, I counseled my herpes patients to eat as much coconut oil, as they could stomach. However, in the past year, I discovered a product called Lauricidin, which is a concentrate or pure form of monolaurin. One dose of Brand name -Lauricidin is the equivalent of taking many tablespoons of coconut oil per day, a practice most people find intolerable. I have been consistently impressed with the ability of Lauricidin to suppress herpes outbreaks, not to mention yeast problems like candida (monolaurin is also a potent anti-fungal agent), and allow people to get off their antiviral drugs. It is a safe extract, which can be taken long term. The usual dose to suppress the herpes is about 1/2 to 1 scoop, one to three times per day. It should be swallowed, not chewed, and always taken with some food. The dose should be increased slowly as tolerated and as gauged by its effectiveness. In addition, we must pay attention to the overall microbial content of our bodies, as we know that good bacteria actually synthesize antiviral substances. For most, this will mean following a nourishing traditional diet containing a variety of lacto-fermented foods; for others, a temporary GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) diet may be needed. The fermented cod liver oil is important at the dose of at least one-half teaspoon per day. With this regimen, most of my patients have been able to avoid both the conventional antiviral drugs and the painful symptoms of genital herpes..." ... 4. Reducing inflammation with turmeric/ curcumin and delivering oxygen to the system since HSV is anaerobic (without oxygen) Just like cancer. I like Fulvic acid; MSM and MMS, the two are very different- please follow the directions to the T and don't use with antioxidants or they will not work unless you take them apart!! don't use all these together. They have some of the same actions. 5. Sleep 8 hours in a dark room or mask the eyes so you able to manufacture melatonin and put the stress hormone to sleep while you sleep with Phosphatidylserine especially if you grind your teeth or can't sleep. 6. reduce stress by exercising (but not overdoing it) ...you fill in the blank. I use fluoxetine for sugar cravings and anxiety. 5 and 6 should really be 1. and 2. because nothing kills immunity like stress, sugar, and lack of sleep!!! thank you Cracked. 7. L-arginine L- lysine balance in foods. If you eat/drink foods high in arginine, take some lysine! ETA: I am experimenting with BHT butylated hydroxytoluene loved the book and reviews! ( don't take high levels) Unfortunately, I have family members who have had cancer and I really have a lot of work to do until I get in the habit. I can't just do a few things and get away with it! I don't know if I can do it all, but I really love the results that FeelingNormalAgain has and I also want a functional cure! Cancer victims work very hard on their protocol and I unfortunately need more effort in mine! If you actually got this far you are tenacious! I am going to a natural practitioner and they will be evaluating my blood under a microscope to look for inflammation, and how active my T cells are which will give them a picture of my immunity. There is one thing for sure, I can take all the lipid dissolving BHT St John's wort or monolaurin I want, but if my T-cells are not active enough to kill the HSV2 I will get outbreaks! Please feel free to add any links or tips! Many substances have the same actions and are just as good! They will also be evaluating my stress levels via inflammation (it looks like little hairs under a microscope.) I trust Dr. Axe, Dr. Mercola, and doctors in the Holtorf organization.

    What's Your Story?

    Hey you guys, So I'm new here. I recently got diagnosed about a month ago with HSV 2. I'm curious to hear everybody's story. Mines kind of careless. I'm turning 27 this year but all my life I've been very reckless. I was a drug addict for 6 years and now I'm almost a year clean. I'm surprised of all the times I've had sex and used needles I never got hepatitis or HIV but up until recently while I was sober I had sex with somebody without a condom and now I'm infected. I think it's kind of funny and ironic how Life works itself out. I feel like this is my Karma for screwing up for so long. With that said, what's your story? If you have any questions or comments about mine, feel free to ask or share. Cheers!
  20. Ive been going through hell, itchy tailbone, clear discharge, difficulty urinating, pain on tip of penis dull back pain and now this rash..Please someone help. I cant take it! Ive been tested but it was negative. Maybe too early idk just please help.
  21. Today Admedus released their Phase II interim results with the main points being, 58% decrease in viral shedding No safety issues relating to the vaccine Immune responses were generated only in the vaccine group Unblinded analysis on first 20 patients (15 vaccine, 5 placebo) recommendation following independent review to progress vaccine full results to be released 1H 2017 To read the full announcement the link is here http://www.asx.com.au/asxpdf/20161019/pdf/43c35546jbmprc.pdf What are other peoples opinions on this trial? they seem to be the best results around, I think Admedus will come through with the goods. Especially considering Professor Ian Frazer is conducted the research his last vaccine Gardasil used to prevent HPV did wonders for people all around the world, Geno's results wern't as good and Bill Halford's trial seem's suss i dont think that will go very far.
  22. The first episode of keratitis on my left eye happened in the summer of 1985. The doctor diagnosed it as a viral keratitis and successfully treated it with Oftan Idu eye drops. The first recurrence happened in a year and a half. Since then it recurred more and more often. The keratitis affected my right eye as well. Ten years later the recurrences happened almost right after I stopped using Oftan Idu. Hospitalisation in the eye clinic didn’t help. When I realised that medicine was unable to help me, I tried to find my own solution. I applied my own eye drops made from honey and aloe vera juice but they didn’t work and relapses continued. It occurred to me to use garlic which has anti-viral properties, but how to apply it safely into the eyes? In 2000, using a small plastic jar and a rubber tube, I made a device for blowing air into the eyes through the finely cut garlic in the jar. With one hand I kept the eye lids open while holding the jar in the other hand and blowing the air from the mouth into the jar through the rubber tube. The recurrences stopped, so I was on the right track, but the procedure of blowing air into the eyes was quite unpleasant. But I believed that it was a necessary trade-off for solving the problem of applying the garlic safely to the eyes. Once I happened to go away on business and left my device at home. What to do? I bought a clove of garlic, sliced a piece of it, moistened the cut with some water and tried to rub it over my eye lids. It is necessary to dilute the garlic juice with some water to improve its penetration into the skin. That was how I discovered a simple way of safely applying garlic to the eyes through the eyelid skin. I had been using garlic in this way for ten years and I had NO recurrences of keratitis. Then I tried to stop the garlic applications. In a week the keratitis relapsed. Oftan Idu drops were unavailable, so I treated it with Virgan eye gel which contains ganciclovir as the active ingredient. This experiment showed that garlic was indeed suppressing the herpes virus activity in my eyes for 10 years. Three years ago, to improve this treatment even more, I started using a garlic solution on alcohol (vodka). This makes the preparation much easier, the solution can be used for 7-8 months, it’s much easier to apply and doesn’t leave the specific garlic smell. The recipe of the garlic solution in alcohol (vodka, 40% alcohol) is as follows: crush 4 pieces of garlic and put it all in a 30 ml medicine jar (5 pieces for 40 ml, 6 pieces for 50 ml); fill with vodka. It can be used straight away as this solution is just a diluted garlic juice. The application is simple: open the jar, press your finger to the opening, shake up and apply the liquid from the tip of your finger to your eye lids. The amount of garlic for a single application is minute, so there’s no garlic smell. When you have no keratitis symptoms, you have to apply this solution at least 3 times a day to both eyes EVERY DAY. If the keratitis is starting to relapse and you get symptoms like eye reddening or tearing, the solution has to be applied every 1-1.5 hours during the day and 2-3 times during the night until the symptoms disappear. My own experience and the experience of other people showed that the eyes return to normal in a day or two. I have been using garlic for the last 15 years and had NO keratitis recurrences. A few times some symptoms started to appear and were successfully treated before turning into a full blown relapse by applying the garlic solution every 1-1.5 hours. The long-term use of garlic is safe as the 15 years of using it did me no harm: I have normal eye lid skin and healthy eyes. This treatment can also be used for cold sores. If you have herpes infection in the eyes or on the lips, you can simply apply some garlic solution to the closed eyelids or the lips according to the above instructions. For those who know that modern medicine can not prevent herpes recurrences, this treatment sounds fantastic, but there’s nothing fantastic in using garlic which has anti-viral properties as the modern medicine itself has acknowledged. This treatment is 100% effective in preventing herpes relapses.
  23. I started dating this girl in December and ever since then ive been going through the worst events. First my left testicle felt like it was being pulled out of my scrotum, the tip of my penis was in the worst pain, its hard for me to start urinating, I have a rash on my shaft, but it looks nothing like herpes, my tailbone and butt crack has been itching for weeks with no break out, I got pearly penile during all this, tingle crawling sensation under scrotum, no outbreak, frequent urination, and the worst depression ive every had. She said she was positive for chlamydia and i was treated for that but was never positive. Please has anyone gone through any of this? Im entirely to close to the edge. These symptoms have been going on for 6 months. Ill attach the picture below, the rash only just recently started. Please help...
  24. I just had what seems like a good idea in my head. Billboards are expensive, a march for HSV is hard to organize, and most other methods are difficult to make happen because people don't want their identities to be exposed. I'm sure most of you have seen vehicles such as cars or trucks with ads on them, right? What about raising money to have a message or slogan placed on trucks and other vehicles which would be willing to be paid for that? Those vehicles travel long distances and more people would see the message every day without us having to do anything extra and they wouldn't be stationary like a billboard, right? I'm not sure how much this would cost per vehicle, but I think it would be negotiable and not as much as a billboard? If we raised enough money on a crowdfunding website for this, would anyone be interested in donating or willing to ask in your area how much it would cost? I think this is one of the best ways to remain anonymous while still doing something that allows us to get the message in front of people. We could include the stats for how many people have HSV, how people should get tested, or anything else that's short but to the point. You can message me if you'd like if you don't want to post here. Thanks.
  25. Dear all, I have created a group on Facebook called Theravax HSV1 & 2 as a platform for people to share their experiences from the Theravax Trails. This is a closed group. Please avoid any negativity as we already have enough of that in the outside world and we don't need it here on this group. You can share your experiences on the consultation, pre and post travel as well so that it helps every one make better decisions. Members of this group can also help each other to travel together to get the vaccine (Not necessarily by means of funds) but just support as it's not always easy to go to a new country for an objective as strong as this. This group is for support. We are with you. <3 I urge the aspiring participants and the people who have been selected for the trails to join the Group and share their experience. I uger
