Too late for Dynamiclear rapid?

Recommended Posts


Hey everyone

So I have had a cold sore for the better part of a week now, and it is now in its scabbed stage. I have been using Abreva and it seems to be helping. However at the beginning of the week I ordered some Dynamiclear, well it has finally arrived but everything I have found online says it should be applied to open sores, and is suppose to sting when added. My thoughts now are that the medication will not be able to get through the scab and I am debating opening the scab so that I may apply the dynamiclear. I simply wondering if anyone has gone through similar actions and whether or not they were successful. Also is is all right to use multiple topical treatments ie Dynamiclear and Abreva?

I encourage you insight

Hi turtledude

My name is Cindy and I work with the customer support team at Dynamiclear, hopefully I can offer some help with your situation.

In short, Dynamiclear should be applied when the symptoms are very active (such as when there is a blister, lesion, pimple or tear present). If the outbreak has already begun to form a scab then it may be best to wait until your next outbreak to make the application, unless you feel that the infection is still active and requires an application of the antiviral Dynamiclear solution to clear it.

Do not open or remove the scab - this is very important! Doing so will cause trauma to your skin and could cause the sore to become very irritated, AND... it will definitely take longer to heal. Also, it could cause your skin to scar. Instead, at this stage try applying something that will soothe the skin and assist with the scabbing and repair process, such as Aloe vera gel or vitamin e cream or oil (anything that is gentle and soothing, ideally a product that is used to repair or moisturize the skin).

You can download Application Tips here: http://www.dynamiclear.com/pamphlets/advantage-application-tips.pdf

It is easier to understand why Dynamiclear is applied in this way if you understand how the formula works.

Dynamiclear attacks and destroys the virus with each contact. Under a microscope Dynamiclear actually ruptures and destroys the DNA and host cell of the herpes simplex virus, stopping it from multiplying and spreading further. This dramatically reduces the virus’ chance of surviving or replicating and effectively kills the local infection.

For this reason you will need to make the application at a time when the virus is active on the surface of the skin.

As mentioned above, Dynamiclear works best when applied to active symptoms like a blister, lesion, pimple or tear. The more active the symptoms are at the time of application the greater the chance of reducing future outbreak cycles.

turtledude, if your outbreak has already reached the scabbing stage then this is a good indication that the virus has already run its cycle and that the lesion is now beginning to heal. The crusting that you can see is actually your skin repairing and regenerating itself. The last thing that you want to do is remove this scab, as the wound is already healing and the new layer of healthy skin is already forming.

P.S. It is best not to apply other products to the area at the same time as Dynamiclear because you run the risk of irritating the area and it may very likely interfere with the treatment working as it is intended to.

      Quest, what is your protocol exactly for taking out a breakout in 24 to 48 hours?
    • jeraldpeabody
      @MikeHerp totally agree and understand! so i would say the first port of call is to somehow bring all these different voices together and work out a good way to collaborate. I've contacted some of the people on instagram / youtube that have fairly big followers but I have yet to hear back from them. I might try another tactic!  What are you thoughts on trying to have a central point of information / communication for the movement ? is it worth setting up a discord / slack kinda messaging app ? for example i can't use this forum on my phone at all, I have to be at my lappy to use it. I also appreciate what Rich does, but he has very few followers on social if you compare him to alot of the female voices on there. LaureenHD is prob the biggest herpes advocate I can find out there with a large following. I'll reach out to her again..

      Does anybody know what an extreme dive in the chamber like the one the diver who was cured would do to a person?  Is it painful/dangerous, or do you just go in and out like nothing happened? 
    • jmherped
      This looks very promising...  I'm in Cabo and they have one of these for divers at the hospital.  I'm going to check into the cost.  John146, are you still using your home machine?

      Right.  I agree that goals are important. 1.  I want to continue to raise money for FHC.  I don't think it has to be that far off as you mentioned, though, as you noted, it still needs a bit of time.  I have a feeling we'll be surprised how quickly progress is made, and the FDA does not seem intent on slowing the progress this time.  Further, once human trials actually start and this stuff starts to show it's quite effective, I think things will become a bit more optimistic for the rest of us even if completing the trials still takes some time.  That's how I see it.  Of course, it's possible that it all fails, it hits huge roadblocks etc. There is that risk.  But I believe this gene editing stuff is here to stay.  Every serious analysis of futuristic technologies I've reviewed, seems to think so as well.  Also, the more important thing is what I wrote at the bottom in boldface--we can make things happen, we can change or at least bend the reality if we try.  In my view, that's more important than how far away something might seem. We've had several veterans here chime in, like @Cas9 who are older, who have dealt with this for decades even, and they aren't even sure whether they will be around when a cure or partial cure gets rolled out (I think Cas9 will get it in his life though), but they still urge us not to give up hope, that there's more momentum now than there used to be.  That's more important than the notion that something might still take some time.   2.  We can get behind other research efforts / trials.  As somebody else mentioned, once pritelivir completes its phase 2, we can begin writing to the FDA to have it approved, to allow it to be tested in not immunocompromised patients.  That kind of grass roots movement will be easier if it is concentrated, coordinated. 3.  We may consider looking at other fund raisers.  Other things may emerge and there are people who are working on herpes stuff (like Doctor Iwasaki) who need money.  But at this time. I don't want to get side tracked.  Ive also been carefully watching Rich Mancuso's efforts regarding theravax.  My only issue with it is that his petitions are asking the FDA to fast track Therevax. But the vaccine hasn't even been submitted to the FDA for testing, so it doesn't seem like it makes much sense to petition the FDA to fast rack it now.  As far as I know, the FDA can't fast-track something that hasn't even entered the process.  But, Thiel has invested close to $10 million in it, and if it does get into human trials, we could consider joining forces with Rich to highlight that and maybe write appropriate letters to the FDA.   4.  As you mentioned, raising awareness. Across various platforms and across various geographical regions.   Hopefully also converting more people to our cause.  For example, @hsv2fighter mentioned to me that he is trying to put together an association of Chinese HSV patients.  I imagine there must be millions.  And with ppl in China being increasingly connected to the internet, I think there could be many with whom we can unite. Likewise, that kind of channel could give us a better view on what they are doing in China with gene editing etc.   5.  As you mentioned, unifying people to show how large and important the movement is, and the need for more funding and research etc. 6.  I believe relevant additional goals will emerge on which we can act, and if we have unified, it will be easier to act.  Most of the time, even if somebody has some good idea to do something, not a lot can be done because people aren't coordinated.  Somebody creates a petition, and maybe 5 people sign it.  Look, the whole FHC fund raiser didn't exist 2 months ago, but came into existence because I reached out to FHC and they were responsive to and supportive of the idea.  So that was good.  But that alone might not have accomplished much if the good folks at Honeycomb, hadn't not only pinned the post about the fund raiser, but also given it their informal seal of approval.  And now, because of all that, we've raised over $10k, and that's only based on mainly small donations in a few weeks from our community.  We haven't even really targeted any deep pockets (we've barely tried) or done a lot to sell the case, rather, we've mainly just donated ourselves. All that stuff happened because people worked together.   The point is that, we can make things happen, bigger things, if we try.  That's what I'd like to focus on more than the idea that something might be far away or it's hard to do something.   Anyway, thanks for your efforts.  This stuff is easier when others are also contributing and you are helping a lot.
