Herpes books?

Recommended Posts


I've seen people mention a few positive books before on the subject, so I'm wondering if people would be willing to share any that they found helpful?

One doctor recommended "the truth about herpes" by stephen sacks, but I havent read it.

I'm starting to feel kinda pessimistic again so I'm looking for something to help me put things in perspective!

Thanks ;)

Great Book!


When I first contracted HSV2 I found a book that really helped to answer a lot of my questions and helped me get over the initial shock period. The book is Managing Herpes, How to Live and Love with a Chronic STD. It's written by Charles Ebel & Anna Wald. Anna Wald is a Medical Director of a Virology Reasearch Clinic at a university. She is also one of the world's foremost researchers on herpes simplex virus (reading from the back of the book, LOL).

I found other information on HSV but this book was what really helped me to clearly understand and and begin to cope. I think I would probably still be searching the Internet if I hadn't read it.

Hope this book helps you as much as it helped me!

Good Luck

I just read The Good News About the Bad News. I kept seeing that title everywhere.

It wasn't as informative as I thought it was going to be. It was good to read, but a lot of information in there I already knew from these forums. Again, it was good to read, but I'm looking for something even more informative. Like, more statistics about transmission, and more talk about dating and whatnot.

I been talking about putting a book together with several other members.

I know it will be a slow process, but there is obviously the need there.

I'll keep you posted.

I know its hard not to be pessimistic, it's a struggle to even have one positive thought somedays.

If you want to chat give me a pm

      Hello.... hope this message finds you well... Pay attention to your diet , there's a young lady on YouTube called Laureen HD... follow her sh is awsome...  Doctors never told me about diet part of it... so peanuts and other junk food I love had me experiencing minor outbreaks which take forever to heal , I'm not on suppression med which I decided just to do... makes no sense to take 12 natural pills when u can take 1. ..  watch your coffee,  sugar and nuts intake ( no pun intended) The after care remedies are good.

      Yes. I have had good experience with CBD oil over the past few months. Here is my "routine". When I notice the first signs of an outbreak, pop the blisters with a tissue, then apply 1 drop of 10% CBD oil rubbing it into the popped blisters for ten seconds or so. Then apply another drop twice a day (morning and evening) for as many days as needed.

      Healing shows progress even overnight. Usually the redness is gone within 1 or 2 days, and the blisters are tiny holes (hard to even see) within 2 to 3 days. Totally healed within 2 to 4 days.

      This has been the fastest healing of the many other approaches I have tried over the years.

      Ben 21 yaşındayım ve 7 ay önce herpes ile enfekte oldum. sevgilimden enfekte Herpes ağzında vardı, ama iyileşmişti ve bir oral seks yapmıştı. Bu enfekte. İkimizin de bir şoku vardı. Bu şekilde enfekte olduğunu bilmiyorduk. İlişkiye 7 ay geçti, ama cinsel organları bulaşmadı. Sürekli üzülüyorum ve bir saldırı geçiriyorum. Her gün ağlarım. hayatım mahvolmuş .. artık yaşamak istemiyorum. Bu gençlerle yıllarca nasıl yaşayacağımı bilmiyorum. Sadece ölmek ve ondan kurtulmak istiyorum Çok üzgünüm ve şanssızım .. Yazım hataları için üzgünüm çünkü bu bir antropoloji değil
