anyone tried oxygen treatments???


Recommended Posts

Once again. Today is day one for me. I was diagnosed at about 11:30 this morning with genital herpes. I'm doing.. well not so hot really. I just keep crying and i can't eat. I feel betrayed and dirty. I could really use some help. But anyway I was looking stuff up on the net and I found some stuff that really looked promising, I know theres lots of just junk on the web but i am really hoping someone else had tried this and its worked for them. Supposidly virus's cant live if there is enough oxygen in your body. this website guerentees it. I ordered a book and some liquid oxygen. I really hoping its like an underground cure. If anyone has tried this or knows anything about it please respond. Also if anyone has any advice for me on how to cope that would be great. I'm really not doing so well. I'm too young for this and I don't even sleep around. I don't deserve it. I'm crying now. I can make myself stop but I don't see a point. I told my mom right away and she's been really supportive but I can tell shes dissapointed in me. I mean I guess it could be worse... I could have aids right? but still its hard to be optomistic right now. I don't want to see any of my friends. And im kind of talking to this guy now but i guess ill have to end it bc i would never want to infect him and hes too inmature to understand. Im just really upset and want help.

Everyone has the same feelings at first. It does get better. At least this community is here with warm, caring, supportive people to help.

I personally take Peroxide baths using 2 cups of "Soft Swim C" which you can pick up at a pool store. I mix it in my Jacuzzi tub and let the water swirl around. It is 28% H2O2, and I take Famvir suppressive therapy.

I contracted herpes from a guy I met and fell in love with AT CHURCH, so much for church people being honest, so not only has this affliction tested my health, but it has tested my faith as well, but I'm slowly making peace with it and myself.

One day at a time, and focus on the positive, and know you are most certainly not alone.

hey kimber...

i feel you. i know where you are. i got it almost exactly a year ago...and it has taken me til about the last month to really come to grips with it..and that has SO MUCH to do with this site (thnak you everyone!!!!). seriously....i lived with this alone for a long time (only shared it with my sister) and basically sealed myself off from anybody or even the possibility of telling ANYONE. now i am starting to see how this disease can be positive. it really cuts out of lot of bullshit we put ourselves through... i am not willing to put up with a guy who doesn.t treat me right or who stresses me out or who just wants to have sex. i have learned how to take care of myself...eat right, get sleep and know my body and how it will respond. i feel like i lead a much more even life and not one of such stressful extremes. it will take a while for everything to settle in...i know right now, life and dating seems hopeless. but in truth, it is just the beginning of a different way you are going to live your life. that.s ok. in terms of controlling the virus, i try to just take care of myself and get valtrex if i have an outbreak. i would love to do supressive therapy but i can.t afford it. seems like there different things that work for different people.s bodies. try what makes sense to you and you will begin to figure your body out.

and it came as a huge suprise that people actually accept and love (romantically) people with this disease...you.ll see if you read the posts. all i can do is extend my hope to you...read as much as you can about it. just be informed and be smart. we are all here to support each other....

a huge hug....


let us know how you are doing...

oxygen therapy

Hi Kim: I am new to this forum but not new to HSV2. 14 years now and counting. The oxygen treatment you refer to, is it called Chelation Treatment? If so, my understanding is the treatment is intravenously introduced into the body, and should only be done by a physician. Many heart patients use this therapy. I am in Canada, and am thankful to you for raising the issue of this treatment. It is one i certainly would not consider, but it is worth a try.

Regarding your other issue, perhaps you were seeing the blotches on the legs or buttocks. My BOZONE (break out zone) is my left buttock, quite a large area involved. No circles, definitely lesions. Valtrex has been my saving grace, thankgod for insurance.

You were very wise in your approach, knowledge is the key to sanity when it comes to H. Sometimes I think we know more than our Doctors. Stress is a key factor in controlling the outbreaks. I actually take anti-anxiety medication, stress and depression have plagued me my entire life. If you find your skin scars easily (some of us do) I might suggest drinking Aloe Vera Juice . Fruit of the Earth makes a tasteless one, its just like water. I don't use creams, foolishly I took some advice from a website and spread the lesions.

There is a lot of mis-information on the web about HSV2, quick fixes and so on. But don't let that discourage you from finding the right information, herpes.org is a great site (American). And please, don't wait too long before finding a trusted friend you can talk to, I waited 12 years for that :evil: very angry with myself about that.

Rest assured your tears will dry up inspite of the emotional blow you have taken. Anger may set in for a while, but that is ok. It takes time to come to terms with H and there is an ocean of knowledge to help you. Don't let H control you, learn to control IT.

my very best wishes to you.

      Hi "Jeremy"..... I agree, the topic of your HSV status does not need to be something you disclose too soon in a developing relationship..... get to know each other first....see how it's going and as it progresses, then the HSV issue will naturally need to be revealed.... it's my personal opinion though that before there is any sexual encounter you ought to disclose your HSV status.... I know some will disagree with me on this but, I think it is morally wrong not to disclose first.  This can be a make/break situation for most people but, again, I feel it is simply wrong not to give the other person the whole story since your decision not to disclose could put their health at risk.... that is simply not an option in my opinion.  Looking back to my "pre-HSV" life I most certainly would want my partner to disclose their HSV+ status before intimacy so that I could make my decision as to whether I want to take that risk or not....

      Thanks, CHT. I appreciate the feedback. The whole trauma of going through this has led me to figure out a lot about myself and my attachment wounds, so I'm taking courses to come out of this better. This girl really was my dream woman in so many ways, it's been the hardest heartbreak to deal with ever. I'm truly in a lot of pain, but using the pain as fuel to launch that new business and work with coaches. I also opened up to my family about HSV, so my parents and sister know now, and they were very loving and accepting of it. Since opening up about it, I feel way better around this thing. After opening up, I also found out that some mutual friends in our family have discordant couples who are married with children, so HSV hasn't stopped them from living a loving life. The thing is... all of these couples I mention did not disclose until 6-8 months into the relationship. So now I'm thinking it might be better not to disclose until I know things are very serious. I'll of course stay on the medication and use protection, but maybe this is a better route than disclosing upfront and scaring women off.

      Hey @Lcj987 and welcome to the website. You can be sure that isn't HSV-2, looks nothing like it. It is much more likely to be folliculitis or inflamed fordyce spots.

      Hey @JackThrowAway herpes causes an outbreak where it enters the body first and maybe a progressive spread. If it doesn't cause an outbreak at the entry site then it won't cause one elsewhere, it also won't 'jump' upon infection - it would be more likely that the lesions are continuous from the penis to the anus. Nevertheless, testing trumps symptoms or any interpretation of symptoms. The correct conclusive result arises when: you have a positive swab; or An IgG HSV-2 level over 3.5 (Herpeselect test).

      Slept with someone unprotected, roughly 2 weeks ago now. I felt generally unwell the couple of days after but I’d been drinking the whole weekend and didn’t have much sleep either of the days of that weekend so put it down to that. 6 days after I noticed these spots appear on the shaft of my penis. Along with symptoms of discomfort in my shaft in the couple of days prior to them appearing. No pain when urinating at all that I have noticed. They don’t hurt, itch or tingle and they don’t have fluid in from what I can see or feel if I squeeze them and have never burst? I went to a sexual health clinic to get checked up, they took bloods to do a full test and looked at the spots but said they saw nothing that concerned them but I’m not sure about that, any advice? The smaller spots under the shaft are just follicles I had diagnosed years ago and non-sti related.
