Recommended Posts

postivelove30

Me again...what a rollercoster this is....so i finally figured out how to stop the itchying with benedryl and baking soda...and all the lesions and wounds are healed over...but I still LOOK a mess! The sores are healed but I dont remember any "crusting". they just kinda turned red and it looks like scars everywhere. AND NOW I have little red DOTS everywhere even down my thighs a little bit. Theyre not raised, just little red dots - ive had these before in other places and my mom has a lot of them....am i having another outbreak or is this beacuse I'm on my period or is it still healing or is there something I should be doing?? I dont want to be left scared and gross looking! PLZ help.....

I'm also starting to get a little burny....OH I'm on day 3 of suppressive meds, 400mg twice a day....

I'm going to try cough medicine and baking soda like you have - after my current dressing of tea tree oil and honey has seemed to run its course.

I hope you figure out what those spots were and that they aren't herpes virus breaking out in new places.

I never said cough meds - i said benedryl tablets - its just an allergy pill. I take one or two of those, then put the baking powder and water mixture on the skin....

Oh I see.

I'd heard elsewhere that cough mixture mixed with baking powder was effective. - First stinging a bit, then numbing down and permitting a night's rest. I thought your plan was similar, so upon hearing it the second time I thought it must be a good thing to try.

I thought Benadryl was an American cough syrup.

So allergy tablets work as well? Excuse my ignorance.

      Having HSV-2 has not bothered me at all for casual sex. I'm just avoiding sex during outbreaks, on suppressive therapy and using condoms every time with casual partners. Since my outbreaks appear on top of my penis, even during an outbreak the risk is minimal if I put a condom on as soon as I take my underwear off.  I guess it might be a slightly different case for a girl as if you have external lesions around your groin you could still infect someone even using a condom. And of course, condoms can break, which has happened to me over 10 times and caused myself to get infected in the first place.  I see it as a much more difficult now having a serious relationship, because I can't feel much with a condom on and really want stop using them. However, I don't want to put my new girlfriend to any risk - I would feel terrible if I infected her.

      Does anyone have experience about people's reactions to Herpes in Asia? Personally I live in Thailand where I also caught the virus as a condom broke 4 years ago.  Unfortunately I infected my ex-girlfriend with HSV-2. This was just after I had caught the virus myself and we had sex before I noticed and realised what it was. In the beginning, a local doctor told me I have just hurt my foreskin with my jeans' zipper and the tests came as negative. After getting tested later it came as positive.  Anyways, my ex-gf (well educated, professional, 26 years old then) she had no idea what Herpes was in the first place. She didn't really care too much about it and didn't bother to get tested. During our 3 year relationship we kept having unprotected sex as usual and she never had any issues until at the end one day. She had a very minor outbreak once and nothing after that (lucky her, no like myself who gets terrible symptoms non-stop). I know she has a strong immune system, because she was never sick despite myself having bad colds quite often. In any case, she could not care less about this virus and didn't mind at all.

      I've seen a lot of hysteria surrounding Herpes in Europe and the US. What has been your experience in South-East Asian countries like Thailand? Do people perceive HSV-2 as a worrying disease?

      The jury is still out as there needs to be additional experiments. Editas' results make me believe dosing was insufficient among other issues.
