Anyone from the Philippines???

Recommended Posts

Luisa

I'm wondering if there's anyone here from the Philippines, or from anywhere in Asia? I just think this is a very helpful support group and that people going through the same condition should know about this, especially those who reside in my area. I've searched for local support groups (online and non-online) but i don't think one exists. It's quite frustrating because I don't know anyone else who has it. Anyway, I just think it would be nice to know that i'm not alone. I don't feel the need to actually meet those in the Phil. who has it, maybe if they could say hi on this site, it would really help. Thanks everyone!

Hi Luisa, I've been lurking in this forum for a while now ever since i've been diagnosed early last year. I only visit this forum whenever i have an OB which is about every three months hoping to read inspiring success stories and a cure. So it's safe to say that I'm having an OB right now. :-(

I think I've had this long before I was diagnosed because from time to time I get something like an insect bite down there. At first, I brushed it off thinking it was just an ingrown hair or a pimple. I was just wondering why it keeps on appearing near or at the same place eveytime. I finally had the courage to see a doctor in St. Luke's, the doctor said it was herpes and he told me to get an HSV1/HSV2 test. Embarassed and in a state of disbelief, I went to the hospital's lab to get my blood sample taken only to be told that it's not available there. I went to intercon (diagnostic center where i got my blood tested for all std's except herpes. Thank God, it all came back negative) and was told they don't have it there too. At first, I wondered why herpes tests are not readily available at Diagnostic centers. After doing some research, I understood why. It's because herpes is a relatively common viral skin condition. It's not even dangerous and 90% of people have HSV1 and only 10% of them shows any symptoms. The same way with HSV2. 25% of the people has it and only 10% of them shows any symptoms.

I finally went to another doctor in St. Luke's to ask for a second opinion. What he did was, he took a swab from the pimple and cultured it and he told me that I'm positive for herpes but he can't tell me which type. He told me it's genital herpes because it's in my genital area. He suggested that I take 200 mgs of zovirax 5 times a day for 10 days and 5 x a day for 5 days for recurrence. The same treatment whether it's oral or genital herpes.

My OB's are very mild though, it doesn't hurt too. but I get depressed whenever it rears its ugly head. What I do is episodic therapy, I always store 6 tablets of zovirax 800 mg in my medicine cabinet and I immediately take the meds 3 x a day for two days whenever I see a small bump starting to form down there. :) It usually clears in 7 to 10 days.

In hindsight, I shouldn't have gone to a doctor about my insect bite down there. As they say, Ignorance is bliss!! :)

Hi all, im from philippines also. I stop with the meds and creams kasi it will cause side effects to me lalo na pag long term use. (And kind of EXPENSIVE) what I do is when there's "ITCHYNESS" at any point of time it means its starting already so what I do is

use PURE ACV (APPLE CIDER VINEGAR) with the "MOTHER". Kasi yung mother yung may contain nung fighting agent. Nabibili to sa health store kung wala sa SULIT ako bumili.

Apple cider kasi have ANTI of everything kahit search sa net.

Ang ginagawa ko is ginagawa kong wash. Dillute half cup sa tabo then make it like a wash. then at night APPLY UNDILLUTED ACV of it in parts na may itchyness kasi dun yung sores lumalabas and DONT WASH THE ACV. May sting pero WORTH IT YUNG STING. As I experience guys from start of itchiness palang siya and hindi na siya tutuloy tas 2-3 days lang yung "ODD FEELING" not the super painful 10 days.

I HOPE IT HELPS.

We do understand, many of us here have infected a loved one, I have.

The reality is that your wife in all likelihood will not experience much more than an inconvenience once her immune system is in full swing.

How have you both been diagnosed with HSV?
