  1. Hey all-- So last week I was diagnosed with genital HSV-1. My doctor did a swab test. I really was not expecting the results to be positive for herpes, I'm still in shock, scared, and confused. What is really confusing to me is that my doctor while he was doing the swab test said he "didn't see any blister". What I have is very tiny and it feels like a tiny ingrown hair. It is very hard to see even with a flashlight. I went back to visit with my doctor to discuss the results and again he said what he swabbed did not look like a normal herpes blister, but it could have popped or broken, an
  2. Full paper here: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0264410X18315652 Note sure if anyone wrote about this. I couldn't find any results for VC2 in the site's search. This is a live attenuated vaccine from Louisiana State University. The results do not seem super promising, as reducing shedding/recurrance by < 70% pre-clinical is common in many discontinued vaccines. Still, research is being done, which is always great! Prophylactic conclusions: "Our studies also showed that VC2 vaccine decreases the clinical severity of acute and recurrent HSV-2 disease in guinea

  4. I've known my fiance for couple of years, and in our country, before we get married, it is compulsary for the couple to screen for HIV test. The test showed negative for both of us. Then we decided to take an STD test (without any symptoms) just to make sure and this test include Syphyllis, Chlamydia n both type of HSV. The results came with me having negative for all STDs and my fiance having all negative except for HSV-1 (igG blood test). I am under so much pressure right now to consider of calling off the wedding or continue with it. My concern is that how it going to affect my pregna
  5. Hi..Ive been browsing around the web, and find out that HSV1 might caused eye infection and ultimately blindness..how common is this? Anyone experiencing this before?
  6. I just being diagnosed with hsv-1 (oral) and experience my first outbreak. What worry me is that i am on my early stage of pregnancy, is there any risk i transmit the virus to my baby in the uterus? Since I never had any outbreak before and this is the 1st time I've been tested positive with hsv-1. Anyone could help me deal with this, Im so worry, I really want to make sure my baby is delivered safe and healthy
  7. Hello, I've never had a herpes sore or any symptom in my entire life. Last week I receive a small spit of saliva in my lip when I am talking to a friend who has active sores. After that I "run" to the bathroom and washed my lips with lots of water. So far I have had no symptoms, whem exceed the incubation period of 20 days and I have NO symptoms , I can rest? Please give some advice! What I have to do to get peace in my head? or tell me if this episode is a risk of transmission? Thanks for your support
  8. Hello there, I was recently with a guy about 3 weeks ago and since then I've had bumps under my tongue that hurt really bad. It was hard to eat and drink, the bumps lasted about 3-4 days and were gone. Some other symptoms that I feel are the tip of my tongue is numb and weird feeling and some small white bumps appearing but don't hurt. My main question, if anybody can help me with, is the guy ONLY sucked my nipples. Can I contract HSV-1 through him sucking on my nipples? Thanks for any information given.
  9. 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 ar
  10. 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.a
  11. How can you best protect your wife and other family members from your infection?
  12. Hi all, Im 19 and currently a sophomore in college. I was diagnosed with genital HSV-1 about a week ago after going to the doctor for what I thought was a really bad yeast infection. Turns out it was the beginning of my first OB! Im almost positive I contracted HSV from a cold sore on the mouth of a guy Ive been seeing for a few months after he gave me oral. Its been 8 days since it started and today is the first day that I have been able to walk around and go to the bathroom without excruciating pain. Needless to say, I will never take the ability to sit, walk, and pretty much just exist
  13. Hey everyone. I'm new to the site, but I've unfortunately been getting cold sores (orally) since I was very young. (Presumably contracted from a family member as a child/baby) This past year I have had 6 outbreaks. (Usually I have 1 or 2 max a year.) I've been under a lot of stress, more than usual, but now it's just getting too much. I have been suffering from clinical depression for over a decade and an anxiety disorder for about 6 years, and even through all of that, my OB's never became more frequent, until this year. I take Lysine daily, Vitamin C, try any foods to boost t

    Is it just me?

    So is it just me or does anyone else notice we have an increasing number of people signing up each day on HC alone? Does this maybe suggest the rate of infections is increasing? Sucks to see more people being victims of this virus.
  15. I’ve been recently diagnosed with Hsv-1 by a blood test so idk if the infection is in my mouth or gentials cause I haven’t had any symptoms. But I’m going back and forth between feeling okay & then feeling contagious . I have so many questions & I don’t want to travel all the way to the doctors to get them answered . I know the basics but I just want my particular questions answered. Does anyone know where I can get my questions answered by a doctor online ? Or someone who is really educated on the subject that I can email .i honestly feel like I would feel better if I get my question
  16. Has anyone who submitted their General Medical History form for Rational Vaccines' Theravax HSV-1 Safety Trial heard anything from Minerva Labs or RVx on the status of the trial or whether they were accepted? Anything you you can share? Any direct information would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    The Usual Outbreak

    Hello! So this is another post from me because, once again, I'm not sure if I'm having an outbreak! I've only ever had two definite OBs; My primary OB which was terrible, swelling, about 10 sores up to 5mm in diameter on foreskin and frenelum, painful and swollen lymph nodes in my groin, lasting about 2-3 weeks until I was back to normal. Then unsure of if I was having them for about 3-4 weeks but I think it was just scare tissue from the healing sores. About 5 weeks after initial OB my definite Secondary OB which was only 1 sore around 3mm on my foreskin, slight/no ti
  18. Hi, all! A bit of a long read here, but definitely appreciate advice from anyone who has the time to give it!I disclosed my genital HSV-1 to the wonderful man I'm dating about a month ago, and he took the news better than I could have hoped for. We have not had sex yet, and because I really care about him, I wanted to make sure I shared my status with him before we did. (Note: this is the first time I've disclosed to a partner since my last relationship and my first partner since that relationship in general.) Not only did my status not turn him off from me (I disclosed via letter sent by emai
  19. Interesting study. Mothers with a previous history of HSV-1 infection may pass protection onto their unborn child. While this study points to protection, it is not quite a conclusive study. Mice as well as human tissues were used to lend to the author's conclusion. Still, the human body is pretty cool. Also very exciting is the notion that while vaccines to date have not been effective for HSV sufferers, there have not been studies to see if a vaccine could provide protection to a mother's unborn child. For example, some failed vaccine stimulate an immune response but that immune resp
  20. wasn't sure where to post this. Only seems right that we pay tribute to this angle as its a matter close to our hearts and it has featured in every news paper around the world today. no doubt in her 18 days she will make a impact to the word. im glad we all do our best to stay safe and keep others safe. http://www.womansday.com/health-fitness/a59592/deadly-virus-newborn-kiss/ RIP Mariana
  21. Hi, You know, I really don't know how to word this in a polite way and this may be too blunt/TMI for some...So, **Warning. I have facial herpes, yay. It's been a year. I miss giving blowjobs to my husband and haven't because I feel like it's taking a chance of spreading it to both of our nether regions. Now, I'm pregnant. Intercourse is sadly not comfortable for me right now...and I want to make my man happy and me too. Is a BJ with facial herpes too risky? I hate you Herpes.
  22. So, I am a dental assistant and have dreamed of being a RDH and a year ago I was diagnosed with HSV-1 and I am distraught I have since left the health care field because I fear getting pricked by instruments. Of being an occupational hazard and having to disclose my diagnosis to my employer. I am just wondering are there any people in the dental field or medical field that have a diagnosis of hsv1 and it hasn't affected their everyday work like?
  23. Edit: so I jumped the gun too quick due to an e-mail alert; this paper is dated 29 February 2016. For some reason I thought that was today I'll leave this here for anyone who wants to read it but it is not new content. Researcher from Temple University, whose research will likely feed into Excision Biotheraputics, have published a paper on gene editing and HSV-1. I haven't been able to read the whole thing and won't until later tonight. If someone else has time feel free to provide your interpretation of the content. On brief review, in cell cultures (think petri dish - so not i
