Every outbreak is worse than the last

shouldn't it be the other way around?

I'm beginning to think there might be something terribly wrong here...

Hi there, trying!

This may sound like a pin in the rear, but you may want to keep a diary of everything you eat, how much sleep you are getting, exercise, how much water you drink daily, and what supplements you are taking daily.

This would likely give you an idea of where you may need to make some changes. It wouldn't hurt to talk to your dr. about it as well. If you could work with a naturopath that could help a lot but I know it's expensive. There are many things you can do naturally that can help a lot!!

I hope you feel better soon!!!

I'm very careful about what I eat.

Always drink lots of water.

I tend to drink a lot of alcohol as well, which doesn't seem to be a trigger for me either, considering I drink almost every day but these bad outbreaks come about once every couple months or so.

I am on anti-virals, I've tried all different kinds currently on famvir.

I also take lysine and red marine algae and olive leaf.

And I use releev topically.

Basically, I'm doing everything that I could be doing to combat this virus, and I continue to lose lose lose.

edit: this outbreak is horrible, all over my toplip and (for the first time) also on my bottom lip. really oozy and nasty and spread out. AND it just so happens I have two people coming to visit for the next 14 days. the timing could not be worse.

Stress

Over and above all the dietary things, alcohol, etc. --- the main trigger for most folks seems to come down to stress.

So perhaps a hard look at the stressors in your life, and what you are doing to manage them, could be helpful...

so...

I had a culture and blood test taken, and.........

both were NEGATIVE!

so the dr. is completely stumped as to what these outbreaks are on my lips, since all tests thus far have been negative for hsv.

I'm worried that it could be cancer/an immune issue/rheumatoid issue, although all of this is still very unclear to me.

ack!

Wow. That must be horribly frustrating and scary. No idea what to suggest to you.

Hang in there!

Great news that your test results are negative! Maybe it's a bad case of acne? Have you seen a dermatologist? That's what I would do if I were you.

      Who said it was hard to believe? It's possible that it causes some Alzheimer's but its also possible that herpes merely takes advantage of a brain weakened by Alzheimer's rather than being the causative agent. This theory is a well-documented by experts. The fact is that they have no proof either way. Links do not prove anything and are often proven incorrect as causative agents. To further complicate things, they fully expect that Alzheimer's may have several causes. Therefore, the best way to handle it at the moment may be to reverse the damage with a cure which would likely work for all causes or at least most. It may be easier to fix for now and then prevent later as they learn more about the various causes. They may be on the brink of that now.

      I have to agree. Only American companies are under the jurisdiction of the FDA but why do they extend their influence over all treatments and medicines globally cos they are corrupt yeah. Makes sense

      Dear Mike, I have access to academic resources. If you would like to have a look at the original report, you can tell me your email. Note that it's only for personal use of HSV cure research survey.

      In my opinion the FDA are the biggest scammers out there. From my side as a mother who had to see my Daughter be infected because of the terrible misrepresentation of Pharmaceutical medications (Valtrex) I think that the FDA has a lot to answer for.  They take their funding and bonus's to approve dangerous medications which have later turned out to be deadly.  They approve and endorse sugar with no limitation or regulation although it's the biggest cause of heart disease, diabetes and obesity.  All because they are part of the bigger business scams out there to keep the population dependent on antivirals for life.  I know I would much rather a natural solution for my Daughter than the toxic medications the FDA endorse.
