  1. 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 compl

    Genital transmission of hsv 1

    Hi, I have question regarding contracting hsv 1 through genital sex. Most cases of ghsv 1 are results of oral sex and genital transmission is not very well documented. Is there anybody who has contracted it this way? I am asking because I did and would like to know if I am such a minority and also I would like to know what are my chances to pass it to my bfriend. Thank you all. (AlsoI, if you don't mind, I would like to know how was your primary OB. I've read that sores tend to appear where the virus entered the body and for me it was at the entrance. I guess, if ghsv-1 is contracted oral
  3. Hi. It seems like posts on this forum about Crispr/Cas9 in its potential to cure HSV 1 is limited. I have not found any recent posts on this subject. Also, I can't find updated articles from google on this subject either. What is the current status with this? I read about a hopeful research group lead by Dr. Bloom at the University of Florida conducting Crispr/Cas9 research to cure HSV 1 and possibly HSV 2, although I'm not sure if their information is updated. Here's the link to the professor's lab info: http://mgm.ufl.edu/faculty/faculty-home-pages/david-c-bloom-p-h-d/ So
  4. As discussed many times here, there is an article about reinfection. Maybe the old hsv info is going to change as per reality, finally. https://www.verywell.com/concurrent-oral-herpes-and-genital-herpes-infection-3132939 Despite knowing this, many people wonder if it's possible to be infected twice with the same type of herpes virus. They want to know if having a herpes oral infection caused by HSV-1 means they're protected from an HSV-1 herpes genital infections. Unfortunately, it doesn't. In short, cold sores don't protect against genital herpes. That's why it's very importan
  5. Hi there, Long time lurker, first time poster, and I'll keep it simple and condensed. I've only signed up because I realize the depths of suffering some people are in, trying all sorts of desperate treatments, and I've basically been sitting on something that has taken me to near 0 outbreaks (hsv1 genital). When I first got infected some years back, I had an atypical presentation--no pain or itching, but permanently there. Bumps going up and down within the same day even, but pretty much permanently covering the head of my penis. Doctor swabbed it--came back hsv 1; he said it
  6. Hello, Have any one is diagnosed by sharing foods or drinks?It is possible or just a myth.On google mixed information is available.Anyone have inputs regarding this topic.
  7. Hi everyone......i hope some of u remember me from the chat room I cried last night with pain and finally decided to write... i just turned 25 2 days ago......for the first time i didnt go out to celebrate..... My Exposure - happened on 4-Aug-2017 (Unprotected sex with a stranger i met via an app) My guilt - I let my lust take over my health.....i had no knowledge about stds other than HIV and Hepatitis u can judge me all u want but i am not the kind of person u would be thinking i am while u read this post.......i was very happy and healthy before this incident..
  8. Hi all, I've had several strange symptoms that have left me confused and afraid, as well as several negative tests. My concern is HSV 1. One symptom that began a few months ago and has not stopped is this red patch on my buttocks that only appears and gets irritated/feels like it's burning when I'm sitting down. It then disappears shortly after standing up. Every now and then the patch can be seen further down my leg, and sometimes there is some redness on the right side. If this was herpes related, would it be red all the time (not just when I sit)? And if this was something to

    Desperate for advice!!!

    Hi all, I'm desperate for advice as someone newly diagnosed who made a silly decision. Please don't judge, just hear me out. Following the first sexual encounter with someone I have been dating, I starting feeling weird down below. I had had a Hollywood wax 2 days before I had sex, so I attributed it to this, until it got worst. I went to the sexual health clinic convinced I had picked up some kind of infection from the waxing , but was diagnosed with HSV 1. To say that I was devasted was an understatement. I knew I had to disclose to my recent partner as I am sure that he had
  10. Hi everyone! I’m a 24 year old female. I was newly diagnosed with hsv 1 gentially. I have been married for 6 months and my husband has been my only sexual partner (and I am his only as well). I contracted it after he gave me oral sex at Christmas. Neither of us had any idea he had it and he showed no symptoms. Around New Years I started to experience flu like symptoms and dull pain on the right side of my vagina only after sex. It would also swell and feel sore afterwards. There was a tiny red dot on the outside. The flu like symptoms and pain lasted a full month. I finally went to

Has anyone had these tongue ulcers & if so for how long have they lasted.. seems like I had one the week after my infection & a few more a few weeks after & it's finally getting treated however seems not to wanna go away?! Anyone w this experience?

  13. Research goes on in China too. Happy to see that. http://english.cas.cn/newsroom/research_news/201711/t20171108_185823.shtml In a present study led by Prof. WANG Hualin in Wuhan Institute of Virology of Chinese Academy of Sciences, the scientists found a novel monoclonal antibody (mAb), m27f, targeting to glycoprotein D (gD) of HSV-2, which also has cross-reactivity against HSV-1 gD. These finding will enrich the HSV glycoprotein D-specific neutralizing antibodies and will facilitate the development of vaccine design or novel therapeutic strategies.
  14. Hi, I have herpes 1 on my anus, nose and lips. I believe the HSV 1 virus reactivated during HCV therapy with immune suppressing drugs. That was 5 years ago and the herpes virus is debilitating me to the point where I am on permanent pain killers and cannot work. Actually cannot sit up for long because of neuralgia pain in between shoulders at that bony bit that sticks out at the area where the spine hits the shoulders. That area is numb. I also have peripheral neuropathy, malaise and urine retention, as well as skin splitting open randomly. I have not had an OB on my vagina (yet). I cle
  15. My boyfriend had a sore on his lip (I believe he got it on Wednesday), but we weren't sure that it was herpes. Looking back, it does not match up with the looks of a canker sore. It was on his upper-lip, with a more scab-type appearance. He refrained from giving me oral sex just in case. Sunday at about 4 PM however, I gave him oral sex. It was not very long as it was immediately followed by vaginal sex, with a condom, which I now know only reduces likelihood of contraction by 30%. I also thought it would be safe because I had no signs of a sore. I noticed at about 6:30 PM (two and a half hour

    Cure for Herpes

    Only want people with clearly results of the herpes disease !! I want the pros/cons of programs, and all.
  17. I got tested in May, but failed to see the red flag of my results: HSV 1 IGG TYPE SPECIFIC AB 20.80 (Abn: H). I gave him oral, it lasted less than 2 minutes. Later we discussed showing our STD results (I know, we did this ass backwards). I sent him mine and he has been freaking out. I am 37 and I have never had a cold sore or fever blister. I had no idea that I was HSV 1+. Since seeing my results, he has been out of his mind. Per his request, I spoke to my doctor and they assured me I could have gotten it as a child, but he won't/can't get past the 20.80 and that I failed to notice it.
  18. Hello, I have a technical question regarding any vaccine in development (and hopefully available one day). If it is therapeutic vaccine for hsv 2 and I take it (I have ghsv 1) or if hsv negative person takes prophylactic hsv 2 vaccine, will we get positive blood test result (igg) for hsv 2 as this test is based on antibodies? If so, then I would be falsely positive for hsv 2 and persons who would take prophylactic wouldn't know if they get infected or if it's just vax result (and then how to determine if preventive vaccine works?). If anyone can answer please. I hope it's not silly question. T

    Tricky HSV 1

    Hi, I have a question regarding variations of HSV 1. I have it in two locations now, unfortunately, but I know that this evil virus likes any location. Next variations are herpes gladiatorus and herpetic whitlow (also keratis, but my question is not about this one). If in a case of ohsv 1 (oral), virus hides in trigeminal nerve ganglia and genital ghsv 1 in sacral nerve root ganglia, then where it hides in a case of the mentioned variations: gladiatorus and herpetic whitlow? It seems to me it can invade any part of nerve system (and likes it there despite general idea it prefers faci
  20. It is well known that outbreaks occur more frequently when the immune system is low. Has anyone taken a vitamin & mineral test and supplied all deficiencies. Was there a substantial improvement?
  21. My ex had a blood text at my request. He says that he was exposed and has antibodies because of that but does not have Herpes. Is that possible?One interesting thing is that he said that he was exposed for HSV 1 and I know for a fact that I don't have HSV 1. I has not been willing to show me the results. Also I had what I believe to be my first outbreak. It was pretty severe. It's been 8 weeks since it started and my pain is just stating to get better. just left completely and I did a blood test. My HSV antibodies came back at 5.1 levels. Does that mean that I was previously en
  22. Hello, About 6 months ago I went to a doctor because I had a couple of small, flat canker like sores in my mouth and on my tongue, which I've had before (never had a blister on my lip to my recollection), which coincided with one small flat "canker" like sore on my genitals (I'm a woman so I couldn't see it, but felt is and it was completely flat - not raised like a blister). I had IGM and IGG tests done (I know IGG are the ones to count). I am unsure how to interpret the results though - the first doctor said he thought the IGG was negative (the values below are shown as fractions as opposed

    Second outbreak already?

    I just got my first outbreak of hsv 1 (genital) a little over two weeks ago. It completely cleared up probably 5 days ago. Today, I am starting to think I might be getting a second outbreak already. After my sores were all gone and scarred up, I decided to do a little shaving in my bikini area to make myself feel better about the appearance my vagina.....since I've been so down about it for the past couple weeks. I have always been prone to razor burn my whole life. So I want to believe that's all this is. But, I did think my primary outbreak was razor burn the first day before it got really b
  24. Hi everyone, Just wanted to share my situation/predicament. I'm hoping for some advice or feedback. I'll try to make a long story short.. I'm a 33 year old guy. About 3 years ago I caught oral hsv 1(cold sores) from some one. I had a pretty rough time accepting it, and I got one every month or so for a long time. The doctor put me on valacylovir for six months which helped, and I started eating really healthy and getting more sleep. they're getting less frequent now, but its only been 4 months since my last 1, and that feels like a long time. 2 years ago I started dating a girl,
