Complicated Situation

Recommended Posts


Hi there everyone. Let me get straight to the point.

I've had HSV-2 for about a year and a half now, but before I was diagnosed with that I was told I had HPV. It caused me to have genital warts which I never got rid of (at the time I didn't know you could). I don't think I have HPV anymore, but the warts are still there and I get confused as to when I'm having an outbreak and when I'm not. Does anyone else have this problem or know what I should do? Also, is it less likely that warts can be removed if they've been present for over a year?

I'd really appreciate an answer or two... I'm drowning in depression from this bullshit. :(

Applejuice, i think you should consult your doctor. Warts can be removed; I think there are procedures to freeze them off with acid or something like that. In some cases, people's bodies get rid of the HPV virus. Doctors don't know how the body does that, but it just does.

Please go see your doctor!

I had my HPV causing genital warts lasered off in 1988. I have not had a recurrance and I do not have HPV. Go see your doctor. I am sure they can be removed.

      There are currently two Phase 2 clinical trials of the effect of valacyclovir (i.e. Valtrex) at the NIH and University Hospital in Umeå, Sweden respectively for the sole purpose of measuring the impact to Alzheimers of taking Valacyclovir in HSV1+ individuals. Anti-viral Therapy in Alzheimer's Disease https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT03282916?recrs=ad&cond=Herpes+Simplex&rank=10 Feasibility and Effects of Valaciclovir Treatment in Persons With Early Alzheimer's Disease (VALZ-Pilot) https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02997982?recrs=ad&cond=Herpes+Simplex&draw=2&rank=11 We should have some compelling evidence by about this time next year as the Swedish study has been going since 2016 and is set to conclude in April of next year.  The NIH study is set to conclude in 2022 but either way, on simply the mounting causal evidence, I'm going to continue taking my antivirals.

      It still sucks for those of us in our 40's. Granted you will have to deal with it a lot longer than I, but it still sucks.
