Your body clearing the virus on it's own?

Recommended Posts

When I had my last pap smear, the gyno said that sometimes the body clears the herpes virus itself. It doesn't mean you are "cured", you still have herpes. But she said that for some people, when they are about to have an ob, the body clears it before it happens. She said this is something that sometimes happens for people who have had it for a number of years and it's the closest thing to an actual cure. Anyone ever heard this before? She was saying that it's just the antibodies doing their job and it's possible for people to just stop getting ob's. Any thoughts on this? Of course, it was nice to hear that but I'm just curious about what others might think of this.

Sure its not uncommon for people to become asymptomatic after a while. Some people even stop shedding at a detectable level. This is probably a combination of your immune system learning how to fight the virus and some latently infected cells dying.

Ok, I see the word "asymptomatic" a lot on here. Does that mean no symptoms at all anymore? No outbreaks or shedding?

Asymptomatic refers to no clinical symptoms (like visible lesions). Shedding is just the presence of the virus. It can occur in the absence of symptoms.

Absolutely possible

I know of someone who was treated over 15 years ago for H, and has never had an outbreak that she is aware of again. She is an avid runner, and sticks to an alkaline diet as much as possible. Anyways, gives hope!

      Your symptoms and photos match exactly what I've been dealing with on and off since October 2018 after I had a a really bad flu that brought about tingling on my lips.  I eventually tested positive fro HSV1 months later, but I don't know where on my body it is.

      @CheekyMunkey there is absolutely no way you, me or anyone has any chance of diagnosing what issues inside the mouth might be. There are simply too many issues that create similar looking outcomes. All I can say is that issues inside the mouth are way, way less likely to be related to herpes compared to if you were having issues on the lips.

      Hi mate.  Thank you for responding. I do feel better but I think the oral might be the issue. I was looking at my tongue and it looks white. Well whiter than normal. Also about 3 days ago I had a really sharp pain in my tongue which lasted like seconds. Later in the day when I saw it it had like a line cut into it. Is it a lesion? I have no pain in my tongue at all, no fluid filled sores but I noticed that Its shape isn't right. Like a bits missing on the tip of the right hand side. I've added two pics. It looks whiter in the pics then it actually is but I noticed red dots all down near the tip. Could that be something? Herpes? Also, where the tongue goes out of shape there is nothing on that side. I did burn my mouth on some pizza on the day I felt that sharp pain so not sure if that's got something to do with it.  https://ibb.co/zhphnMD https://ibb.co/G0pPRLh Thanks in advance.

      Personally, I'm still wondering how likely is it China will cure HSV before the States does ?...
