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.

      Another company looking to create a vaccine.  http://www.bluewillow.com/bluewillow-biologics-awarded-patent-for-intranasal-genital-herpes-vaccine/ BlueWillow’s intranasal NanoVax platform elicits both mucosal and systemic immunity through its novel oil-in-water nanoemulsion (NE) adjuvant, offering a unique advantage to combat sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including genital herpes. The mucosal immunity elicited by intranasal NE vaccines provides critical protection against infections at the port of entry by which a pathogen enters the body. The intranasal NanoVax HSV vaccine has demonstrated safety and efficacy in both prophylactic and therapeutic animal models for genital herpes. In a prophylactic guinea pig study, the intranasal vaccine prevented genital herpes infection in 92 percent of animals vaccinated. Therapeutic study animals previously infected with genital herpes who received the BlueWillow vaccine reduced recurrent lesions and viral shedding by more than 50 percent compared to animals who received no treatment.

      Cas, This is sooooooo exciting I may need a diaper!  How bout you?  😊

      This is wonderful news!  Impressive dollars raised and the team is absolutely outstanding.  For those who have been dreaming of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation on our side, consider your prayers answered.  William Jacobs and Betsy Herold from Einstein have “sounded” extremely confident all along.  While maybe not just “around the corner” this is amazingly exciting!   If there was ever a person that possibly could be a force in “fast tracking” could it be Mr. Bill Gates?  While it may seem “so far off”, for those of us having been infected for 20+ years or more, it is still music to our ears, and the  glass is always half full-without hope you have nothing.   Never forget this line from Shawshank Redemption:                                           “Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies”.

      Discussion thread on this news here:

      This is pretty impressive for a number of reasons: Average funding for a series A in biotech is around ~$50M but the median is around ~$30M as of 2018 The takeaway then is the XVax is at the higher end of the spectrum suggesting (1) High investor interest, (2) XVax is thinking big A robust set of investors- good to see that there are multiple names here rather than 1-2. Again, suggests robust interest from investors Note that the anchor investor (i.e., the biggest) is Adjuvent who are backed by Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, good to see that HSV continues to be of interest to them (my theory: due to the link with HIV and Alzheimer now)   Overall everyone should be cheering this news given the impressive results seen with animal models. Still remember this is going to be a multi year process- I would hope to see a phase I in 2020
