Devastated but looking on the positive side now

Recommended Posts


Hi all, I have just been clinically diagnosed to have genital herpes 2 days ago. It started with prodrome and I didn't suspect anything until i saw the ulcer popping out. Now I had 4 sores. I contracted this through unprotected oral sex and it was something that i can't look back and unwind.

I am on Valtrex pills and Acyclovir cream now. I am also taking b-complex, echinacea, garlic, ACV, spirulina and chorella, with the hope to boost my immune system and suppress the virus.

I have just ordered Dynamiclear, Lysine and Immune Support. So I hope this will also help to reduce and minimize as I do not plan to take valtrex daily.

The doctor told me to go for a blood test after 4 weeks to confirm if it is HSV1 or 2.

Can I do it after 2 weeks? Will there be any difference?

Can I get cold sores or mouth ulcers in a later stage?

Has anybody read this book from Dr. David Hogg? Is it good? I can't find any comments on this in the forum.


I am planning to go for a diet regimen but am clueless. I have gone through some sites for food to eat and avoid. For now, vitamins and herbal supplements will be my first line of defense. Positive thinking and reduce stress is also one of them.

I have also bought Epsom salt but i do not know how much to put for an amount of water. Please advise.

I am a married man and I have not informed my wife about it yet as i am travelling for 2 weeks. I can sense her hurt, dissapointment and frustration. Wish me luck in 2 weeks and should our relationship come to an end; this forum, my parents and God shall be my solace.

I am from Malaysia and I am not sure if there is anybody in this forum from here too. H is like a taboo here and probably difficult to find support group. This forum shall probably be my friend.

      I have had a monogamous relationship for the last 6 years.  I did not have Herpes before the relationship.  My partner recently had an outbreak on the buttocks and was diagnosed with HSV2 about 2 months ago.  She said it was the first outbreak She had ever had. She has been taking valacyclovir for the last 2 months and we were intimate for the first time in about 4 months about a week ago.  Now I have an outbreak on my upper lip.  I read that this is not impossible, but rare. I wanted to ask others opinions on how HSV2 works, as I cannot help but find the situation really strange.  I totally understand that HSV2 can lie dormant for years, displaying no symptoms.  My partner says She has not been unfaithful, and I decided to believe her.  However, with this outbreak, a new doubt crept in, as I think it's really odd I would get an outbreak a week after being intimate, knowing I didn't have this before our relationship. I would appreciate hearing if this is possible, I love my partner and can't bear the doubt, but also don't want to feel I might be being blind.

      Hello, Im in the UK and have recently been diagnosed with herpes 2.  I am still coming to terms with it but i am keen to consider the stigma surrounding herpes.   If you don't mind.... would you tell me if you have told many people you have it?  What was their reaction?  Thanks guys x

      Hi Guys! I am newly diagnosed with HSV-2 and its the 7th day and my 1st outbreak is over. One week before the diagnosis I was at the prime of my life and the news gave me depression and I wanted to commit suicide knowing that I have a stigmatized NO CURE DISEASE. After a lot of research online I came across the combination herpes cure that I need to try. I have already chatted the support and they are quite informing in their responses about the 4-6 months protocol. Anybody who has tried it kindly share your sentiments and I will appreciate the insights... I feel pity for my life dear God why me please...

      Hi Guy! I am also two weeks into my first outbreak. This has made me do a lot of research for a permanent cure. I have seen Synergy Pharmaceuticals from Australia selling the combination herpes cure. Has anyone come across this? Does it look legit?

      I do pick them and pop them a lot so I think I’m just making it worse! Do they look like herpes to you though ?
