Another version of HSV1?

Recommended Posts


I am 20, and I have gotten cold sores around my lips for at least 8 years. I could never figure out any triggers; they just seemed to come and go with fairly typical frequency, and they never bothered me too much. This changed in March of this year (9 months ago), when they started happening every two weeks and lasting about a week. I started getting them farther away from my mouth, and now I even have one on the surface of my lip (usually they're just on the edge.) I have tried changing my diet and using lots of recommended herbs, vitamins, etc., but nothing seems to help much except for taking 400mg of Acyclovir three times a day. That dose seems to cut it down quite a bit, but still doesnt suppress it completely.

This change happened right after I started seeing someone new, and I'm wondering if it's possible that I caught a different strain of HSV1 from her. I can't figure out any other reason why the frequency and behavior of my outbreaks would have changed so abruptly and dramatically. My diet, stress levels, and hygiene didn't change. I keep trying to think of something like that to change, because then I could go back to the way things used to be, but at this point I'd really just like a plausible explanation.

Thanks for reading!

      Have sex  with at least one of you wearing clothes + a condom  next time, if you really want to protect him.

      All negative, Except for hepatitis B which is something you're vaccinated (They give you antibodies) against in the military. Before, I go through the trouble of re cropping another damn picture for you. I'd like to ask what your response will be if I show you the results and they're all negative?

      Universities receive most of their  funding from Pharma companies. Scientific studies aren't cheap, Pharmaceutical companies aren't going to fund research on food supplements when there's no pay off for them. It's naive to  think big businesses would fund research that'd directly decrease profit.  Then there's the possibility of the pharmaceutical companies bribing the government agencies from genuine health research, to keep themselves in business. https://thevaccinereaction.org/2018/04/big-pharma-pays-universities-for-most-medical-research-in-u-s-today/   Also, No one outside of the research community has the resources/contacts to prove they're cured. Even if they scored a negative on a western blot test/IGg, scrutinizers would just claim the virus was dormant or they never had it at all. Other than blood test, There is no easily accessible method to determine whether or not the virus is completely eradicated from your body.
