So simple but yet so Soothing

Recommended Posts


I just had a breakthrough that i thought i'd share with my fellow community.

I'm been in the process of a genital OB and i have various sores in various healing stages pretty much all over. Lately i've been having increased itching and burning when I walked around and sat down, and it felt like my sores were rubbing up against sand paper.

I usually keep my vagina very clean shaven but since this OB started i've been letting my hair grow out because i was scared to put a razer near my sores, but i figured I would take a razer to my vagina area to see if that was what felt like was rubbing up against my sores. So i shaved the area clean and since I havent shaved in like a week the hair came off very easily and didnt even hurt... And now I feel 10 times better! It turns out most of my irritation was from the sores rubbing up against my hair.

:mrgreen: Lol sorry, i'm like so happy now...You guys know how crappy outbreaks can be so any progress is great progress to me :mrgreen:

      Almost certainly that is not herpes. There are a number of diseases that can cause your symptoms, not all of them infectious. If you haven't done so already, go see a doctor as soon as you can.

      Seems likely that you had an asymptomatic infection and now you are having very mild recurrences. Asymptomatic infection is by far the most common case, in particular for HSV1 positive people. It could be a genital reinfection with HSV1, unlikely, or most likely a new HSV2 infection, there is no way to tell without a blood test. It's been long enough for an IGG test but don't bother testing for HSV1, you can already assume you are positive and have been for most of your life. I don't know about how it is where you live, but where I live I don't need to ask any doctor to get tested, I can just go into a clinical lab and order the test for €40. If your test returns negative for HSV2, don't worry about putting her at any risk regarding HSV1, she will have the same risk from anyone else. Acyclovir cream won't do any good, you should stop it (it increases the risk of getting an acyclovir resistant strain). Otherwise, your recurrences are so mild and far apart that it isn't worth it to do any treatment for now, so don't be scared about your health, chances are it'll get better with time. AND ALWAYS WEAR A CONDOM

      Doing a little research, it seems that Amenamevir  and Pritelivir are definitely not chemically identical. How similar are these drugs really?

      I have been working out regularly after being diagnosed in may with ghsv1.  First 3 weeks were awful but haven’t had any OB, symptoms at all since.  I also haven’t been eating as healthy as I should be.  Feel like I never had it. Hope it stays this way.  I think working out helps.  Just my view so far.

      Based on current HIV treatment, I would imagine they will create a one-pill combo of pritelivir and valtrex and sell it as a daily pill. But once a week pritelivir + valtrex might also work in the meantime.
