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,

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

      Only thing reoccurring here is some type of pimple or Fordyce spot.  Herpes does not stay in a constant state as you describe. It moves through its stages quickly. Try to relax.  You are taking the right approach by talking to your health care provider.  It is with certainty your tests will continue to be negative for this exposure.

      Hello, I had a potential exposure to someone with HSV1. Not sure if it was oral they had or genital. She did have what appeared to be a friction burn near her vagina that was questionable. 4 days later a small red pin size pimple appeared. It went away after about 3 weeks and another appeared near by. It’s been here for a month as well. It looks like It gets inflamed when it’s irritated.. no popping. When I leave it alone it gets almost unrecognizable. I may have irritated it again as it’s inflamed and red again. I can post updated picture here soon. I’ve tested negative for HSV 1 & 2 right before this partner. No flu like symptoms and any other symptoms other than these spots. Also I got a test/swab 10 days after potential exposure.. nothing really to swab... All negative IGg and IGM. I took another test at 5 weeks after exposure and still negative. I just went back in for another test. They are doing IGG and IGM again. I’m worried it went undetected. Does anyone have reoccurring small red pin sized bumps? Doctor/ Wilson has told me it does not look like herpes. I would love to hear of some other opinions.    https://imgur.com/a/RtarvYW

      Yes, FHC research is all about a full fledged cure (i.e. a sterilization cure). It's not a vaccine. The latent virus is the virus that resides in ganglionic neurons permanently. When the latent virus reactivates (i.e. replicates), it causes shedding, or an actual OB. There are the ganglion along the spine called the Dorsal Root Ganglion (DRG).  HSV infection of the DRG, specifically at the base of the spine, causes genital herpes. Then there's the ganglion on the sides of the face/head.  HSV infection of that ganglion causes oral herpes. The FHC work involves transporting a gene editor to the neurons in the ganglion mentioned above. That gene editor cuts the latent viral DNA in two locations, to eliminate it; i.e. a sterilizing cure. A functional cure, for example, would be something like, stopping the latent virus from replicating, but the latent virus would remain in the ganglion neurons. Stopping it from replicating would prevent OBs and shedding. Of course any therapeutic vaccine is also welcome. I mean, if it reduces OBs and shedding by 80%+, that's very helpful, and it gets closer to a functional cure, but not quite.
