hi kenworth

Read up on the info on the right hand side >>>> cos the more you know & understand about Herpes the better you will be able to help your ex. Btw, I'd say she's lucky to still have your support.

She's very lucky to have your support. What a contrast to some "ex" situations!

Like d00m says, the links on the right side of the page have a wealth of very good, balanced info. If you find something specific that isn't answered, post a question.

Some quick tips ---

Painful urination is a common problem. If your ex is dealing with that, tell her to:

  • Drink plenty of water to keep her urine dilute (less acidic)
  • Urinate while sitting in a tub of water,

  • or in the shower with the stream of water hitting her parts,

  • or while pouring a container of water over her parts sitting on the toilet
  • Get some numbing cream (contains lidocaine or xylocaine or similar) to put on the area
  • Try diaper ointment with zinc on the sores
  • Don't use paper to wipe --- instead use a hair dryer on cool
  • Take a bath with Epsom Salts, to soothe and also help heal the lesions

Hope that's a start on helping.

She is very lucky that your being supportive even as her ex. Not many ex's help out with each other. I know mine for sure would care less if I had gotten it. I'am still sorta new on the GH part myself, having to learn as I go dealing with a parent of mine with it.

      That's some new info for me you mentioned about talking valtrex during the first month of infection. When I got mine, it was after heavy nights of partying (that I don't normally do) in the southern islands so my immunity was definitely dead. I was still a student back then.. I didn't start Acyclovir until a month after or so.  For mixing BHT with coconut oil, I just added them together into a glass pipette bottle and put the jar in a bowl of almost boiling water. It worked very easily to create a 250mg/ml solution.  I might give BHT another try, I quit if after 2 weeks because I didn't get any effects from it. Might give it another go at 1g/day.  Root canalled tooth.. is this because you get the outbreaks in your mouth? I also have a root canalled tooth but the OBs are genital.

      Yes, it was affecting my thyroid, I can feel it swell when the infection comes on.  It is known as hashimoto's.  The immune system inadvertently attacks the thyroid tissue in a collateral damage type effect.  It can be caused by any of the 8 types of herpes virus.  I believe that my infection is in my vagus nerve.  Anyways, it has been hell, but I have it to a manageable level now.  Steven also said that the recurring infection could be due to a root canalled tooth.  I had a root canal job done on a molar but never got around to putting a crown on it, so that could be causing some reactivation as well.  I am planning to pull it out soon.

      Thanks Quest, so I just googled this and it appears that heating does break it down.  I have been heating at the lowest heat that my gas burner will burn at, and just to the point where I can get it to dissolve, but it appears I have been inactivating a percentage of the bht.  Will have to figure out a better way.   I think heating to 100 degrees celsius likely will not inactivate too much.  According to this study, heating it to 175 degrees for 2 hours only inactivated 15-30% of the bht.  I think I read the way to heat it was inside a jar placed into a pot of boiling or simmering water.  Will try making a batch that way.  https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s11746-000-0147-9

      Valtrex is worthless against my strain anyways, it does next to nothing, and it irritates my kidneys, so for some strains it will do nothing period.  It is criminal that there are vaccines that have been developed that can't get funding from big pharma.  Seriously hate big pharma.

      To save everyone time in translating, the article is about Trivalent and contains nothing “new” to share.  However, fingers crossed on this one :-)
