Are there any lesser known Anti-virals?

Recommended Posts

dio1979

Is there any treatment besides valtrex, acyclovir and famvir? I have a resistant strain that doesn't respond to traditional antivirals. I've even tried topical foscarnet cream. Has anyone here tried anything else...maybe intravenous acyclovir or cidofovir? is there anything else to ask a doctor about?

My ob's respond to nothing. No herbs, internet remedies, diet, etc, etc, I've tried just about everything you can imagine in the 8 years that I've had this...

Lastly, does anyone think that we'll see new herpes drugs hit the market this year or next year? Thanks

How do you know it's resistant? Did you get a lab to confirm it's resistant?

A good infectious disease doctor should be able to provide you more options.

My current GP is trying to get me into an infectious disease specialist now as she is unable to do the cultures.

can a lab actually confirm it's resistant somehow? All is know is that traditional av's have no effect on me whatsoever. I've had this for over 8 years and I've tried them all. This virus has a mind of it's own when it comes to me.

So I'm guessing there are other options then besides the regular av's?

Yes, they can test the virus for resistance. I don't think there is much more to offer, however. I just had that same conversation with my ID doc. He said there was a cream he would prescribe but that is not systemic.

There are broad range anti-virals like Ribavirin but docs won't prescribe for safety reasons.

Have you tried Beta Glucan? I would HIGHLY recommend it. Forget all the rest.

Thanks Struggle, I think I've tried the Beta Glucan in the past but can't really remember so I'll try it again. How long did it take for you to see the difference with the Glucan? alot of these vitamin and herbal supplements I've taken for months on end and then give up because I see no difference. What's your dosage for the Beta Glucan? Thanks.

      Him holding my hips, grabbing ass, then grabbing his cock is what I worry about. I also worry about shedding anywhere from the boxer shorts area and that's a mighty big area. It is the unknown. It would be nice to cover the entire area and then I just don't have to worry! Then the part that is exposed which  would be a very small spot. Maybe cover with that liquid glove?!? I just like the idea of doing my best

      I wouldn’t because that would be outing myself as well unfortunately. It just sucks because our mutual friends have no clue why I carry such resentment towards him, and wonder why they can’t even bring up his name around me anymore. Im sure they think I’m a crazy jealous person who is hurt things didn’t work out or that I’m being dramatic for no reason. I can’t explain to or confide in anyone but the users on this forum.

      Girl! I am actually on the same exact position. My new bf gave it to me and he put the blame on me! When he was my 2nd partner and I hadn’t had sex in 5 years (last guy was a virgin). I know that alone feeling but know you’re not alone. I just got diagnosed 2 weeks ago too. It’s crazy you see yourself differently but I promise no one around you does.

      How would that location (upper crack) come in contact with him during doggy style sex? Maybe after the act if he fell on top of you while you're face down. I would suggest simply observing whether there are sores in these areas that are somewhat removed from the genital area. If there are no sores than the odds of you transferring to him such as the lower stomach or leg etc.., are pretty damn low. Obviously, we can come always come up with a scenario where you could transmit. For example, if you were on your stomach and he was sliding his dick up and down your butt crack and you had sores there, then yes, he could get infected. If you were just shedding there it would be less likely but possible. But try doing that with your clothes on. I don't think that would work out very well; Do you?  Wearing clothes during sex like that woman you portrayed in your earlier comment is sexy. But that's all together different.
