Yes, i posted in another forum as well and was told it most likely is hsv-1. But i never had these burning sensations going on before the instance with this girl.
I havent been to the doctor since I just assumed it was the same thing she has, and all she did was use a cream when she had it. The burning sensation lasts for about two weeks. And my lips get really flaky, but i don't get the same blisters as she had. I've had this for 2 years now, with various frequency. I'd say i get them about 4 times a year. Sun seems to trigger it, and also lack of sleep.
hello again folks; it's been a while....
Anyway, I have been absolutely fine for the last 20 months while consitantly on the meds; however, I've just by chance been informed by my wife that I'm having an OB on my buttock again (same place), and I'm gutted. I got no warnings / symptoms either.
The meds have obviously been working so I'm at a loss for why this has happened. All I can put it down to, is that there has been a couple of days in the last two weeks when I've forgotten to take 800mg (2*400) and only taken 1 400mg tab. Additionally, I've spent a lot of time sitting recently, so maybe the heat (from sitting) hasn't helped either.
Fingers crossed that the meds haven't stopped working for me anyway.
(Feeling gutted) :-(
Furthermore, I'm just finish a batch of meds, so I'll be back for more soon.
(Will keep you all updated)
I have been researching the PCR blood test and there seems to be conflicting info. I had negative results but regular outbreaks even on antiviral although it seemed to work for awhile. I am am definitely interested in Halford's vaccine, but wonder if getting it will be a problem without a confirming blood test. I was looking forward to the ABVIC test, but saw in one of his responses that it is on hold for now while focusing on the vaccine.
I know that you are a super smart and you know it. That knowledge has made you arrogant and not open to possibilities that can't your current scientific understanding can't explain. You lack the intellectual humility to admit you might be wrong. If everything was understood about HSV then we wouldn't be here would we? There would already be a cure and a preventive vaccine.
I know it not about me as you imply. I unlike you dont try to diagnose people. I offer support and understanding.
You say that after 20 year some people nolonger test positive for HSV1. Well I tested negative for over 50 years and only test positve now. I tested positive at 17 week post exposure ia Western Blot and 9 months via IgG. I do get why you want to exclude GHSV as a cause of my symptoms when my Doctors won't. What do you know that they Don't . They at least examined me and tested me you never have examined my genitals.
I don't know what your credentials are but Halford who is a PHD and accutally doing something does not make the pronouncements that you make. He admits HSV nueropathy exists even though he can't explain it
No outbreaks, no swab and no IGG means no herpes.
Get off the site and go and live your life. There are other ways to get attention in life than having to 'assume' you have a virus. If you test positive at a later date, I will happily welcome you back and we can have a party.
It's offensive and insulting for people with no diagnosis of herpes to continually moan and cry like a girl (no offence to the ladies out there lol) and stigmatise herpes the way some of you do on here. It serves all of us who have been diagnosed poorly. And i'm telling you that as a someone who is diagnosed and living it. It is both self indulgent and self centred and i'm not quite sure what yoou are getting out of it
