  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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. My girlfriend and me, are HSV 2. 6 months I have been positive. My girlfriend 8 months. We both have IGG positive hsv 2 and have a month of relationship. My only symptoms are itching attacks every 3-4 weeks, I donthave sores, vesicles, or ulcers. She has itching attacks and sometimes mild discharge every month. Our question is, having sex without a condom can make the virus get stronger by mixing genetic material in each contact. Or can it make the tables worse? What is symptomatic? Thanks
  5. Since May I have been taking Valtrex. At first it was 500mg once a day then it increased to 1000mg once a day in June after frequent outbreaks persisted. I've had a total of 9 outbreaks since May and was diagnosed with hsv2 in March of this year. The past three weeks I've had severe dizziness, especially when lying down and getting up in the mornings. Today my doctor suggested taking acyclovir 400mg twice a day. Has anyone switched from acyclovir to valtrex and experienced better results/less breakouts?

    Is this hsv on my legs?

    I was diagnosed as HSV 2 and have had more skin issues all over my body than the genitals- recently drank wine and now this is what my legs look like...I was outside. Is this bug bites or a horrible outbreak caused by wine? It won’t let me load the picture of my legs has anyone had random hive like outbreaks all over their body ?
  7. 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 sea

  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. I recently got diagnosed about 5 months ago after I got an Std screen along with my Skyla implant. I got the positive HSV2 results of 5.8 IgG days after the implant and the very next day I started getting intense prodome symptoms when I had never had any sort of symptoms ever before and had no idea I was even infected because my previous STD screen 3 months prior was 100% clean. I had very strong numbness and tingling and sometimes burning or pinching in my groin, inner thighs, buttocks, and sometimes down the back of my legs that lasted for around 20 days even after my gynecologist prescribed

    Hi all, FYI one more vax to hope for: http://www.vical.com/investors/news-releases/News-Release-Details/2017/Vical-Reports-Second-Quarter-2017-Financial-and-Operational-Results/default.aspx Phase 2 is going on right now, patients have been vaccineted and are going to be tested and observed for 12 months. Results should be released 2nd quarter of 2018. Fingers crossed.
  13. I am writing this as I am wondering how many of you have been diagnosed with HSV 2 and not had a new partner for at least 3 years? I keep hearing this stuff about how it can lay dormant, but I am not convinced? I have had the same sexual partner for 6 years and his blood tests (Igg) came back negative after my first outbreak last month and my positive HSV2 swab test. I have had tingling in my genital area on and off for about a year now maybe 18 months which suggests I may have had this for at least 18months, but definitely nothing when I met or in the first few years with my partner. I
  14. 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

    My Story

    Here's my story, I know it's long but I felt the need to share it In May 2015, I woke up in the morning with what looked like a gross bug bite on my right upper outer thigh. Little tiny bumps clustered together in a form the size of a quarter. I thought immediately it was a spider bite. In fact I called my older sister to chit chat and mentioned to her my bizarre bug bite, and that it looked like "a spider took revenge on me". As the the rest of the day went on, the bumps started to grow and by night time they all formed together to form one large blister. That's when I started to ge
  16. 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
  17. Hey just signed up, new diagnosis, and pissed from head to toe. I have a severe allergy to most antibiotics so I have always been extremely careful about testing, and then this happens to me. I have PCOS, hirsutism suppurativa, and Endometriosis so its not like there wasnt already enough wrong with my vagina to keep me busy for the rest of my life but then this had to to happen to me, the most careful person I know. My test came back positive 2 days ago, my previous test in mid April, exactly 4 months ago, was clean. Now I went on a google spree immediately after my diagnosis and read that it
  18. 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,
