Recommended Posts


Hi,i just wanted to introduce myself since im new ive been infected with Herpes Simplex 1 (HSV-1) since i was a kid an remember having other kids make fun of me when id have an outbreak an it really hurt me. I just found out recently i might of been infected with Herpes Simplex 2 (HSV-2) from my Daughter's Father. He has recently developed sores an the Doc. says it looks like Herpes but cant confirm till the Test results come back next week so will see then but his symptoms sound like Herpes. I have not had genital symptoms that im aware of at this point but ive heard not everyone develops symptoms so will see. Im going for a Blood Test next week to see if ive been infected so i should find out in the upcoming weeks. I have tried one other Forum on Herpes but didn't get enough response from others so im hoping to get all the feedback i can here an i will try to help any of you as well as i can. Its really nice to meet you all :)

I was recently diagnosed with HSV2 myself - trying very hard to deal with it and the aftermath but you will find alot of supportive & encouraging people on this site. I went to a couple site when I first found out but never got any responses either (how encouraging -lol) I hope all works out for you & hopefully you wont have it. If you do, then this is a good site to connect with others & get information. Best wishes.

Hi BDL84,

since you have hsv1 orally and your daughter's father has sores on him genitally, it is also possible that he could have hsv1 genitally, it's also possible he could have gotten it from you via oral sex. if you were shedding your hsv1 orally and gave him oral, he could have been infected that way. At any time in your relationship. The occurrences of HSV1 genitally are growing. So you might not have to worry about having been infected with type 2, if he has type 1 it's most likely the same strain as yours and you shouldn't have much to worry about.

      @srinivas thank you for the suggestion. Are you on antivirals? How long have you had HSV? How well do you feel now that you are taking the supplements?

      It doesnt really mean much yet. They still dont know if the herpes is taking advantage of a diseased brain or causing the disease. Furthermore, there is evidence that Alzheimer's might be caused by oral spirochete disease and even Lyme. Many of you could have oral Spirochetes but the Lyme and is less likely. https://globallymealliance.org/pathogen-cause-alzheimers-disease/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5008232/ https://newsblog.drexel.edu/2016/02/10/do-infections-cause-alzheimers-disease/   Of course it could be both! Maybe having hsv-1 and oral spirochetes quadruples the risk.  In my opinion the spirochete theory sounds more likely and its hard to dismiss neurosurgeons and caretakers getting Alzheimers from a disease that was previously thought to be non contagious. I'd worry more about Spirochetes.

      I wonder if people in the military are tested for hsv, because the general public isn’t. You have to specifically ask for it and many doctors don’t even see the point because it’s “so common”. It’s very possible he has it and has no symptoms or very mild random symptoms. Sorry to hear what you’re dealing with. It seems like women’s symptoms are worse than men’s.

      No that’s not the issue at all. The absolute vast majority of nerve pain is not caused by herpes. Hence it cannot be used to reverse engineer a diagnosis of herpes. That is exceptinally dangerous and we must do all we can encourage proper diagnosis.
