As a sufferrer of constant oral OB's I am interested in this treatment that is from Russia. I am hoping someoone here has tried it or at least has some knowledge of this treatment, how it works, studies, effectiveness, possibility of getting it in the US, etc. ANy info is more than I have now and I'm not sure I can fly to Russia just to find out it doesn't work with oral OB's. ANyone here know anyhting?

Be well,

Katie

Lupidon

I almost forgot, I would be interested in hearing anyone's experience with the Lupidon treatment which is a live vacinne and I have spoken to one man in Italy sho used it and said it reduced his OB's from constant to only 2 - 3 a year. Worth a trip to Italy but the treatment takes 3 months with follow up doses. I gave the research to my doctor who said there wasn't enough research with HSV1 and he didn't recommend it. Not that I have a lot of faith in the US medical in general as I have been misdiagnosed and told it was nothing several times.

I mentioned my experience in Russia in the other thread.. their approach to do an immunogram first seems consistent with the US practice where doctors recommend the only FDA approved shingles vaccine to people with strong immunities (see below)- funny no one mentioned an immunogram to me in the US. Vitaherpavac has a 60% success change - hope it works for me. feel free to pm for details.

Also people... not only did it take 10 years for one of the herpes treatments - Zigran for occular herpes to get approval to be sold in the US, but the current only FDA approved vaccine for any of the herpes family- shingles only has a 55% success

Shingles Vaccine May Reduce Risk Of Shingles Outbreaks By 55%.

The Los Angeles Times (1/12, Maugh) reports that a study published Jan. 12 in the Journal of the American Medical Association involving "more than 300,000 elderly patients showed that the underutilized herpes zoster vaccine reduced the incidence of painful shingles outbreaks by 55%, even in the oldest populations." Shingles, "a painful rash brought on by the varicella zoster virus," may precipitate painful post-herpetic neuralgia and may also "cause vision loss if it spreads to the eyes." There is no cure for the condition, which is precipitated by the same virus that causes chickenpox.

USA Today (1/12, Lloyd) reports, "Everyone over 60 should be vaccinated against shingles, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends." The study, which was co-written by researchers from the CDC and Kaiser Permanente, pointed out that "nearly one out of three people in the USA will develop shingles, a painful and potentially serious condition also known as herpes zoster." Despite that fact, "only 10% of those 60 and older -- the group most at risk for shingles -- got the vaccine (Zostavax) in 2009." USA Today explains that some insurance and Medicare plans do not cover the cost of the vaccine, which ranges in price from $150 to $300. This might be one reason why the vaccine is underutilized.

Bloomberg News (1/12, Ostrow) reports that after comparing "75,761 members of Kaiser Permanente who received Zostavax with 227,283 unvaccinated members," researchers "found that one episode of shingles would be averted for every 71 people who receive the vaccine." Based on the study's findings and the fact that the incidence of shingles will increase as baby boomers age, family-practice physician Juanita Watts, of Kaiser Permanente's office in Glendale, CA, "said anyone 60 and older, including people who've had shingles before, can get the vaccine as long as they don't suffer from an illness that affects their immune system."

Before the course, my igG was 5, after the vaccination is is now 16.4 where anything above 1.1 is Positive.

I have never come across a 16.4 score for IgG so i guess this vaccination has increased the antoi body count in my body and my ability to fight it. My IgM was at 0.5 and o.6 at the same time where anytime anything below 0.9 is negative

      Coming back to report that after vaccinations in May and July, today I have one vesicle. Called the doctor and will report back later. Slightly pessimistic at this point.

      I think I need to treat this as an ocd thought (that I've got herpes) and not check myself compulsively, not seek constant reassurance from doctors and the internet, just try and forget about it. Re disclosure, I would tell future partners that i could have hsv but I don't know, all the visual examinations and tests I've had have come back negative but there's still a possibility that i have herpes. Then they can decide whether to take the risk. I always assume someone is positive for everything unless there are tests to prove otherwise. I don't do casual relationships so always get a full sexual health screening with my new partner so we can both be safe. But they could have herpes and not know as it's not routinely checked for. It's a risk for all parties involved. I spoke to herpes.org.uk helpline and Marion told me that blood tests are routinely bringing up false positives/negatives and that having the virus doesn't predict when and where you're going to have an ob. I therefore wouldn't trust the result of the test and would be repeatedly getting tested, as I did when my hiv ocd was really bad. That was a hugely stressful and anxious time and I don't want to go through that again!! Especially for a virus that can't kill you!! So I think I'm going to have to live with the uncertainty of having herpes obs and avoid sexual contact whenever I feel sore down below if/when I'm in a relationship.  Being on this forum is just exacerbating my Ocd, so I think that I should stop posting as it's reassurance-seeking. Wishing you all the best and thank you all for your help, advice and support. Remember - it's just a virus that billions of people have and doesn't make us dirty or unworthy of love or a good life. Stay safe and well xx

      And I’ll help you up until the second coming. I think this is an unhealthy dose of imaginitis as far as herpes is concerned. Wouldn’t you agree?
    • WilsoInAus
      Yes man that’s correct. I mean we don’t really want more people in the delusional room with mirrors that see nothing, do we?
    • WilsoInAus
      There’s nothing visually or in what you describe that is suggestive of herpes. See your doctor if you have concerns, there’s plenty of things on the list of possibilities here.
