In desperate need of help, please read and respond


Recommended Posts

Hi all -

Boy do I need your help and guidance. I am a 34 year old female and have had HSV2 for about 10 years. I read so many times that the first outbreak is always the worst. Well not in my case. I have had continous outbreaks for the past 10 years and have had no luck at all with any meds. However, I have not tried any of the things discussed on this board, nor am I familiar with any of it. I would GREATLY appreciate it if somone could take some time to explain what these different things are - like HBOT. I have never heard of this. Like I said, I have had continous outbreaks and am at my witts end. I have been married for four years and hubby has never had any signs or outbreaks thank god. We are trying desperately to have a family and I have suffered 3 miscarriages in the past 1 1/2 years. I cant help but think that the HSV2 has something to do with the miscarriages. So PLEASE - any input on different things I can try would be greatly appreciated. Also, what do you use as a topical ointment during an outbreak? I have used Zovirax cream, but it only seems to spread it. I have given up on that and usually stick with just peroxide to help dry it out, but it lasts for usually a week or so. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. I really needed to find this site since my most recent miscarriage was 2 days ago and Im feeling like I am about to lose my mind. Oh yeah - one more thing. I work in a very stressful industry and know that it doesnt help at all. Once again - please send me your input and let me know if you are aware of ANYTHING I can try that wouldnt be harmful if I try to conceive again.

Thanks so much ahead of time.

I started using RELEEV in early May and have had no cold sores since. I always got cold sores when under stress, and since May have been under a great amount of stress on a few occassion, but luckily have had no cold sores.

I'm grateful that I have found a product that works for me. I buy RELEEV from Walgreens for about $18. It's a liquid that is oderless and dries really fast. It say to put it on when the first symptoms start to occur, but I have found that if I put it on everyday, morning and evening, that I don't even get the symptoms that I used to get, such as the tingling. I spread in all over my lips and the surrounding areas where cold sores used to occur.

I hope this works for you. Please spread the word also, since if it works for me it's sure to work for others.

I am impressed by your post and you can count me a friend, I have been exploring the alternatives for a while and will be happy to help with whatever I know. Unfortunately people are trying to make profits out of other people's misery. I do not recommend that you go for any branded products which are advertised here as they may actually be harmful.

You need to seperate the wheat from the chaff. PM me if you like.

I can't say if it works down south, I only get cold sores on and around my lips. I you think there is a risk, then ask your doctor. I was referred to use RELEEV by a friends, whose mother's doctor told her to use this brand. It worked for her and it works for me. I just can't believe it hasn't worked for other people, since it's sold in most every pharmacy. I think the reason it works so well for me is that I apply it everyday, twice a day. That way it's there ready and waiting to fight off an attack.

I know all about the so-called miracle drugs on the internet. I also fell for those scams. I guess I'm just lucky to have found something that is cheap, that works for me, and is available just down the street from me.

Best of luck to you.

you need to relax first

Half the battle of herpes is relaxing and not obssessing about it. You need to feel like you aren't defined by it. I know this is hard, especially if you've had it for 10 years, and caught it at a time when people weren't as knowledgeable and tolerant. But today it's different. So many of us have it. We know wer'e not dirty, or bad. We just have a little primitive bug in our systems, that we're hosting forever.

But it's not a stain. You're a good person. You're loved. You have to start feeling better. I can feel all the strain reading your post. I've only had symptoms for three years, but the first 2 years were obsessive, hypochondriac, fearful, shameful years. I don't know what clicked, but it's that click that we're all waiting for. Then the health supplements start working better for us.

Treat yourself better. Eat better, join an easy women's gym like Curves and do a half hour of easy cardio, you don't have anything to prove. You just want to be kind to your body, be healthier, feel better. It can't hurt, and it will probably help on every level of your health, concentration, cardiovascular. I'm 40 and just started a half hour of curves three times a week. It makes me feel great, more energetic, happier.

Herpes is sometimes a wake-up call for us when we're not taking enough care and not believing we're good and beautiful. I'm sure you are.

That's the best advice I can offer, from experience. My outbreaks have been far less frequent since I relaxed and stopped being obsessed with this pesky but rather harmless little virus.

if you need a crutch to help you get there, just take suppressive doses of acyclovir (zovirax orally) or valtrex.

There's nothing like a reduction in outbreaks to help you forget and move on with your self-improvement.

I use h-balm and an oral herpes liquid called zilactin-L on red spots (even down south, I have both HSVs) that look like they're about to turn into an OB. And an aspirin at bedtime. Seems to work. Minty toothpaste seems to help in a pinch if nothing else is available.

But the key is staying calm throughout. For example, it didn't even hurt as much until I got the diagnosis! Not more painful than a big zit. In fact, that's what I thought it was: buttcne, or a yeast infection depending where it was. But once I was diagnosed, I felt every little thing amplified out of control.

Distress amplifies everything, including the severity and duration of the lesion.

      Hi @Anxious 1234 Did you get diagnosis for this?
    • Damian
      Hi @WhatDidIDo2023, hopefully all is well with you and your significant other and are still together.   Did she develop any other symptoms after you mentioned her getting itchiness? Was it determined what you had was contagious? Most likely developed a fungal disease and caused her a yeast or uti

      Well thank you I appreciate it

      Hi @Luna 01 I really feel it is worthwhile obtaining a proper Herpeselect test given the outcomes of the home panel test. Regardless, your current symptoms are almost certainly not related to herpes. Hopefully, your doctor can assist in resolving these.
