cccccccccc

I am currently having my first outbreak of genital herpes and have started taking anti virals, using cream etc.. although yesterday i started feeling a slightly sore pain when i touched the back of my thighs, i have read on some forums that this is normal as the virus can travel down to nerve ending?? but i need reassuring! :( also my legs feel tired and a bit achey..

Sounds pretty typical to me. Many folks report nerve type pain.

The nervous system is where herpes hangs out all the time. When it goes dormant, it retreats to the nerve ganglia, clusters of nerve cells sort of similar to a root.

When it moves up to the skin surface and causes outbreaks, it travels along the nerve pathways to get there. So these sort of symptoms you are having definitely make sense. They are very common with herpes.

"We believe that ∆gD-2 may be more promising than other previous vaccine candidates because it elicits a different type of immune response against HSV-1 and HSV-2 that is more effective in preclinical models at clearing virus and preventing the establishment of latency. In nonclinical models, immunization with ∆gD-2 elicits antibodies that facilitate the killing of infected cells, rapidly clearing the virus and thereby inducing sterilizing immunity," added William Jacobs, PhD, co-Inventor and Professor of Microbiology & Immunology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine."...
