HSV-1 under the nose?

Recommended Posts

BeachyBoy

It seems like most of the viewers either have it on their lips or down south. I only get ob's under my nose, is anyone else like this? If so, what do you use to limit the ob or dry it up? I'm on L-Lysine, Echinacea, healthy diet and exercise. I only get ob's about 2-3 times a year but they last for almost 2 weeks. Tea-bags don't seem to do anything and cortizone cream only takes the sting away. Any help would be extremely appreciated.

I understand.

We're in the same boat bro... The only place I ever get em in directly under my left nostril, have been for ten years. And in my opinion its the hardest to hide. And just as you my obs last for two solid weeks...four or five times a year. Ive started to get them unnoticeable by the 4th day now though...

1st, get some Acyclovir, 400mgs.. Take at least two per day at the onset, continue throughout.

2nd Lysine, at least 3000mgs perday throught out

3rd B-Complex, Zinc, Vitamin C, and a Multivitamin throught out...

Also, absolutely do not touch it. Just wash in the shower with warm water. No alcohol, peroxide, and def NO CORTIZONE...

Good luck..

Hopeful

Thank you so much for the insight. Is it ok to get the generic kind from Target? I don't have insurance... I'm on day 9 now and its not getting any better and work is soooo embarrassing. I just want them to go away!

Yo..

Dude, generic is fine.. All Acyclovir is generic now, and vitamins are regulated by the fda so all are the same, except for obvious appearences but thats irrelevant. I can currently go from first sign to nobody telling in exactly seven days with episodic treatment alone.. But, I reccomend taking 400mg twice daily and 1gram lysine once daily for suppressive purposes. That should limit you to about 1 OB per year with mild symptoms. From target or walmart the combo should cost you about $45 per month without insurance...

Now, dont let the doctor give you grief about the Acyclovir, ask for 400mg, twice daily to suppress. He'll be happy you did research. And dont let him give you Valtrex, you'll only take it once a day but itll cost you 3 times as much at least. Acyclovir works just as well but you take it twice vs once per day...

Also, dont pick, squeeze, or scratch.. that'll shave off a few days on its own...

Any specific questions???

Life is good...

Thanks for all the support and help over the last two weeks bro. It was nice to finally hear from someone who has the same symptoms as me. Are you taking anything daily to minimize obs or do you just medicate when you feel an ob coming on? I got acyclovir and all the supplements for future obs. I just feel if I'm not having symptoms why waste the money?!?

I work out pretty consistently but I do enjoy the booze on the weekends....

Anything to minimize these future occurrences?

Thanks again!

Cooool...

No worries, glad to hear that helped.. When you have an outbreak, I know that it seems that this website is all you have...

As for future outbreaks, you can deal with them as they arise, or prevent them all together if you dont mind staying on top of it. You have two choices, you can one- ve really healthy; special diet, no sun, no liquor, plenty of sleep, and probably manage it very well. Or you can take some supplements with Acyclovir and live just about however you want..

For that, youll need to take- 1gm or lysine daily, 1 multivitamin daily, and 400mg acyclovir twice daily. If you go to wallmart you can take 2 200mg tablets twice daily as they are reallly cheap there. I think they are on the $4.00 list, which means about $8.00 per month...

Let me know how it goes, Later ...

Hi

I also get them under my nose. Not on my lips. Well actually the last two I got were on the skin between my nose and my lips. Such an odd location. Does not seem many get it in this location.

      Meds and condoms is really all you need. Statistically, HSV2 is so widespread because 80-90% of  people who have it are unaware that they have it, and so they don't take all recommended precautions (including using condoms). Oddly enough, if you were to replace your HSV2+ girlfriend (aware of HSV status, using condoms, using suppressive meds) with the average American woman (unaware of HSV status, but 25% risk, which is average - and using condoms at all times, since presumably you could insist on it), you would actually NOT reduce your risk of HSV2. The statistical risk would be approximately the same for both theoretical girlfriends (about 0.7% per year assuming sex 2x per week). That is a bit simplistic, because maybe you could decide to date only women who are verified virgins (essentially no risk), or maybe "below average risk" in some way (younger than average, fewer prior partners than average, etc.), or you could have all prospective girlfriends IgG blood tested for HSV as a condition to dating them (or having sex with them), which would reduce the risk significantly (especially if you confirmed the paperwork), but not completely (since antibodies take some time to develop). At some point, beyond-standard precautions become inconvenient and not worth the hassle (or risk of being perceived as paranoid). The risk isn't zero, and probably would never be zero, short of taking extreme measures. Efforts to reduce risk beyond standard practices, which already reduce risk to relatively low levels, are naturally subject to the law of diminishing returns. Accepting some level of risk is (unfortunately) part of the deal in most reasonable endeavors. Also, there is statistically a greater likelihood of two people passing HPV between them one way or the other, than HSV2 (assuming all recommended precautions are being taken). Of course, you could get the HPV vaccine (everyone should!). But the vaccine only covers 10-15% of the types of HPV that are out there. And tests for HPV are imperfect, and generally not available for males. And HPV (some types) can cause cancer (cervical, penile, and throat - maybe others). So, keep that in mind as well. And then, of course, there are all the other risks . . . Best not to be paranoid though . . .

      That’s correct. HIV is a distinct virus. No virus morphs into another one.

      Hey @thebrightsidegirl I hope you’re going ok, I’ve read your posts and will see if I can draw some threads. I see that you have genital HSV-1 and your partner has oral HSV-1. I’m not sure if he has tested but given it’s somcommon there’s no reason to disbelieve that’s what he has. This is the best concirdant scenario you can hope for in a sexual relationship. You both already have the virus and your immune systems are established and your experience with herpes is your own. You cannot induce an outbreak in each other by virtue your own HSV-1 and transmission to a new location on your partner is too small to worry about. If HSV-2 is present, then it needs to be brought to the relationship. It’s not at all likely you have it given you were infected genitally with HSV-1.  I suggest these symptoms are very unlikely to be related to herpes at all. If they are, then it’s far more likely to be a recurrent outbreak issue with your HSV-1 as opposed to an initial infection with HSV-2.

      Ozone is basically toxic to humans at high levels. Its probably as likely to kill your cells as the virus. Add to that the virus is not in the blood and I'd say this 'treatment' is probably totally ineffective and if it does include high levels of real ozone likely dangerous. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ozone_therapy
