What will a HSV (1/2) vaccine do for those infected already?

Cure Coming Soon

So I'm seeing a lot of vaccine research mostly HSV-2 is being done at different colleges.

Can someone tell me what a vaccine would if any would do for those who currently have the virus already?

A vaccine will do nothing for those who are already affected

It only helps prevent those who do not have it from getting it.

Only a cure will help us with those who have this 'gift'. However, all the money that goes into a vaccine does move us closer to finding a cure. The more is learned about this virus the better for everyone.

I think it will definately help the ones with it,bymaking it easier for dating for the fact their other could just get the vaccine,and no worries.

Does anyone know if any of the current HSV vaccines being researched are for HSV-1?

Yeah just like tigerfan said if there was a vaccine then none of us would ever have to worry about transmission. The other person would simply have to get the vaccine if they were worried. There might still be a little stigma to deal with...but if a person had the option of geting a vaccine with a 100 percent guarantee that they won't get it themselves, and they don't want to be with someone with H because they're "dirty" then they don't deserve you.

      If your eye was affected by HSV you'd be in intense pain and you'd be in the hospital on an antiviral drip.  It is likely a coincidence of timing, and something that you shouldn't overthink.  Definitely worth getting checked anyway since the eye is a sensitive area.

      I found this website today. You can now pre order Viblok but no potential delivery date is given. The company is in Florida and I called but got a recorded message. https://www.viblok.com/

      Here's something interesting. You can now pre-order Viblok.  However, the website does not indicate when it will be available. https://www.viblok.com/

      Hey all. I had an STD check while pregnant with my now 3 yo and it was perfectly clean, hadn’t had another one until a few months ago   I was sexually assulted about 4 months ago. Because of that I asked for all STD testing. My first HSV 2 IGG score came back at 4.00, I requested another 2 weeks later and it’s now a 3.22 IGG. Should I take this as for sure positive or would it warrant a WB at all? Is it normal for numbers to go down like that?   Ive had NO symptoms whatsoever, at any time     Also, condoms, guys what are the best ones that feel as natural as possible?? Any ideas?
