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.

      Hmm, ok , So  there's a copper ribbon.  I didn't know that. Wonder whether people are aware of that.

      The prophylactic vaccine trial by GSK took 8 years and they were still not done with it.  That's because it takes time to see whether it works--it's a matter of many people having sex over time and that just takes a lot of time.   A shedding study is quicker, so therapeutic vaccines are quicker to test.  5-6 years I think.  Note that there was a study conducted last year that showed that there's a high correlation between shedding and outbreaks, suggesting that it might not even be necessary to track outbreaks, measuring shedding may be enough. It's unclear what they would be proving in case of a gene editing technique.  I think shedding would be a part of it.  But what else, if anything, I don't know. Anyway, it doesn't necessarily have to take a long time like the GSK prophylactic trials.

      I certainly hope this research continues. It all seems legit to me, but again, I'm no medical man (although I did play doctor a few times).

      This is good information to know. To go from continuous outbreaks to none all this time is encouraging. I wonder if after you've given it some time and this regimen proves itself, maybe you could title it, and type it for everyone to read. The more suggestions, the better! You mentioned you've suffered with Herpes I outbreaks. I have suffered with the type II, and I recently read that Lysine doesn't help with the type II. I don't know about that, because it really has helped me in years past. Anyway, by mentioning in your article that you have type I will help, because apparently something might work for type I that won't work for type II. I myself will get these products and add them to my daily garlic regimen, and perhaps I will be able to eat whatever I choose without triggering an outbreak. That's my big problem, wanting to eat the foods that trigger the outbreak!
