Thats an interesting application of oxygen. Oxygen itself is a fairly reactive substance. our atmosphere is less than a third oxygen, most of it being nitrogen, an inert gas. Its bad to breathe ozone (O3) because the ozone will try to dump an oxygen atom to anything that will take it and become standard O2. It will damage your lungs. Oxygen is also used in certain bleaches too. In high oxygen concentrations, gun powder will spontaneously combust, and a small spark can light a room on fire. Thats what happened to the Apollo 1.

I have some questions/concerns about it:

The article does not say how much oxygen and ozone was administered to the patients or any kind of control group.

Also, I question this statement: "Five years later 24 of the 27 were still outbreak free. Re-infection was suspected in the other three." From my understanding, I thought that reinfection would be highly unlikely if the patients who were treated had antibodies to the herpes zoster. If this was stated before the latency of herpes was commonly known, then I could understand that they thought it was re-infection.

Still, it would be simple to test it out. Just get a group together and head down to an oxygen bar to see if it helps!

      ANd eight hours is on a surface...on a towel who knows. The eight hours was a quote off a thread a long time ago of worst case senerio. Obviously it doesnt survive double touching unless its some weird arse almost immediate thing off a shedding site and this is all WORST case scenerio. HSV shouldnt be treated with stigma...but for everyones well being it should be treated as carefully as poss. It is a highly contagious condition and can be difficult to diagnose and GP's will let you walk away thinking you are clear when you are not if you do not do your due diligence.    

      I knew more about it than the specialists at the hospital I was refereed to.

      I have seen your advise on a few threads and to be honest while I am over careful at times you are not careful enough. This can absolutely happen and people should be well aware of the fact to prevent it from happening. I supposedly have good immunity on labs too. You just cant tell who will pick it up. It can live on surfaces for up to eight hours and towels that are wet and warm and that make micro abrasions when rubbed on skin are ways that transmission that can occur. You will often find out more by spending many hours reading on threads than your doctors. SO no it doesn't always just involve a cut on the skin. How do you think people get it else where.

      So please DO NOT swear at me as this is a possibility and this person should careful tick all his bases before ruling it out, cos on the rare case it is I wouldnt want his life totally ruined. Cos if it gets everywhere your life kinda is.

      It's called caring.
