This works for me!!!!!!!!

I was diagnosed with gen. herpes about 6 months ago..

a few days ago i had an out break and for the first time they were not down below.. they were on my face..

how embarrassing to have to go out in public..

a few people I know jokingly said I had herpes (not knowing that I actually did)..

I told everybody it was a rash or an allergic reaction..

anyways I had to find something fast.. to make them go away..

I tried toothpaste when they first showed up(VERY BAD IDEA) .. It made them feel better but it also made them worse because the toothpaste held in moisture..

so then I tried Bactine.. It didn't seem to be doing anything.. but it didn't make it worse either..

Finally, I tried calamine lotion.. THIS WAS THE BEST IDEA EVER!! almost right away I saw a major difference.. I use the calamine lotion skin protectant.. not the itch relief kind because the skin protectant is more potent..

the Calamine lotion dries the soars out almost instantly!! on the bottle it says "Helps dry the oozing and weeping of poison ivy, and poison oak".. so I thought id give it a try and it helped me tremendously!

but I am unsure of what to do after they are dried... as for now i am still using the calamine lotion..

When my little girl had chicken pox (herpes lite)...they said don't use calamine lotion as it can make scars, because it dries the sores out. They recommended band aid heal gel it works pretty well and it doesn't sting.

I saw these the other day when I was in the pharmacy...they looked pretty awesome...although unfortunately mine are on my vjajyjay so I can't stick one on and look like the cool kids :-( (well, I can I suppose but it would be my little secret!)

I usually use betadine (which is an iodine product...on OBs down below and it works a treat on zits too) it is a little if its on your face probably not so suitable for day wear this season. But who knows if we work the runways yellow will be the new black before we know it ;-)

These are being used in combination to help with Herpes OB's. You can find the clinical trial at

Hi Sanner,

Do you know how there using this mixture? i've been using epizyn (zinc) and a purell equivelent with good results, and have been thinking of maybe mixing up a concoction. This mix you have pointed out seems similair and would be interested in any more info you may have. I've tried google, but not come up with much

      Hi all. Just joined- having been directed here by a penpal from H-Ype.
      Rather excited about the Halford vaccine trial results and keen to keep up to speed. Not seeking help or counselling as I am not 'suffering'- am used to HSV2 and generally keep it in check by recognising prodrome symptoms and adjusting diet and lifestyle accordingly. Have a good day wherever you are. Adiebear.

      wow, I just read about seems live atenuated has been absolutely in reach since ever;im not a conspiracy kind of guy but is so amazing that a vaccine that produced 85% reduction in symptoms was stoped because of financial reasons, I mean, if you see the ammount of money people is putting in developing apps that have almost no chance to succeed, it seems imposible .... I can`t think other explanation other than big companies deliberately avoiding the easy way to put their more complex (and so, more difficult to imitate) product in the market; it`s crazy

      I'm not sure what viral shedding studies would actually do. To do any good, the study of shedding needs to be both continuous and include determination of copy volume (that is, professional and consistent swabbing or related technique by a professional); how is this possible? For example, shedding can remain on the same number of days (or should it be hours?) but if the copies are dramatically reduced, the vaccine is 'successful'. For those with HSV already, then shedding reduction is not as important as symptom reduction. And what is most important of all is whether the preventative vaccine is effective against an unvaccinated carrier.

      Sadly no.  The too good to be true vibe mentioned by @Malcom coupled with the lack of measured viral shedding in the trial is troubling.  Don't get me wrong, Halford's vaccine has the potential to be a biblical good.  I volunteered for the trial.  My greatest worry is that history repeats itself and Dr. Halford is fundamentally repeating the AuRx folly.  In the early 2000's a researcher by the name of Laurent Aurelian, citing the same fundamental headaches with the FDA about performing clinical trials of his live attenuated ICP10 vaccine, went to Mexico and held a Phase I trial.  In the published results 84% of those injected claimed to have significant symptom relief.  Without numeric shedding reduction results it was impossible to differentiate between placebo effect and viral transmission impact.  14 years later, the AuRx website: has the same statement indicating that they are awaiting investors to move forward.  I really, really, wish that Dr. Halford had included viral shedding results in his trial.  I hope that he plans to in later phases and that he is able to collect that metric before RVx runs out of money just like AuRx did.

      Hi there, you have come to the right place.  This website has the most accurate information about this virus on the internet. Most people who do get an outbreak do so 2 - 20 days after getting this virus, so it does sound like you did get it from your current bf.  However, if you are in the minority and did have it prior to being with him then the chances of you passing it to him are remote when you don't have an outbreak. You asked for links about ttansmission risks and here are two great ones for you: Good luck! JB

      If you're anywhere near a Planned Parenthood, they have a sliding fee scale for all services (including testing) based upon your income.

      Do we know anything about shedding reduction ?
    • K_Sock
      Oh, tough situation but if he thinks he now has it it seems like fairly normal behavior to do the research he is doing.. Maybe just give him a few days to work through his process.. Probably best to not judge..  Glad to hear things have been going well. You will make it through this.

      Refer him to halfords work on a vaccine for obs. Then he will see there is no cure.
