OB inside of me

Recommended Posts

Nina E

Hey everybody!!!

what do you do when you have an OB inside??

In november I got a lot of outbreaks so Im now on valtrex, lysine, zinc, kelp... which have taken care of most of them... except for one I have about one or two centimeters inside of me on my left side.. which have been there constantly since november...

I wondering if it is because the wound needs air.. and if so how do I do???

does anyone else have experience with this??

hope that somebody knows -- could be lovely to have sex without pain.

take care everyone :wavey:

Nina

Hey Nina,

I am new to this....and thougth I had a ob inside me too. I just started my menstrual for the first time since being diagnosed and when I used a tampon I was HIGHLY irritated! It burned soooooooooooooooooo bad--felt like fire. So since then, I have wore pads and feel much better. I was unsure if you could have ob's inside you or not, but after reading this, I don't feel so alone. I hate to keep calling my doc (swear, I have called her at least twice a week since I was diagnosed on teh 7th) but I may call again and ask about this....

newly diagnosed myself. i was hoping that this wasn't a common thing. My first outbreak last week was only but one small lesion i had mistaken for a razor cut?! I feel like i got on the medication from my doctor quickly and i am already healing. I am about to start my menstrual cycle probably within a week though and this was a VERY big concern I had. I asked my doctor and she said that pads in my instance would have probably been worse for sanitary reasons and that tampons would be the way to go. I never put pain into the equation though. I feel for you

Hey - thanks for replying!

Im actually kind of in chock right now, since I've been checked by another doctor who claims that what I have inside of me is not herpes. She told me that it is a irritation of the skin, I've gotten a creme and the pain is almost gone.

I've been misdiagnosed for three months. -I do have herpes, but the biggest "OB" is not herpes. And I was told by the skin doctor that this was a common mistake, and that I shouldn't wear pads (do to sanitary reasons), and shouldn't eat this and this and this - things I've eaten to prevent herpes.

SO - If you have constant OB, consider to be checked by another doctor....

and 2711: Im sure you are not alone!

Lots of love,

Nina

      That's some new info for me you mentioned about talking valtrex during the first month of infection. When I got mine, it was after heavy nights of partying (that I don't normally do) in the southern islands so my immunity was definitely dead. I was still a student back then.. I didn't start Acyclovir until a month after or so.  For mixing BHT with coconut oil, I just added them together into a glass pipette bottle and put the jar in a bowl of almost boiling water. It worked very easily to create a 250mg/ml solution.  I might give BHT another try, I quit if after 2 weeks because I didn't get any effects from it. Might give it another go at 1g/day.  Root canalled tooth.. is this because you get the outbreaks in your mouth? I also have a root canalled tooth but the OBs are genital.

      Yes, it was affecting my thyroid, I can feel it swell when the infection comes on.  It is known as hashimoto's.  The immune system inadvertently attacks the thyroid tissue in a collateral damage type effect.  It can be caused by any of the 8 types of herpes virus.  I believe that my infection is in my vagus nerve.  Anyways, it has been hell, but I have it to a manageable level now.  Steven also said that the recurring infection could be due to a root canalled tooth.  I had a root canal job done on a molar but never got around to putting a crown on it, so that could be causing some reactivation as well.  I am planning to pull it out soon.

      Thanks Quest, so I just googled this and it appears that heating does break it down.  I have been heating at the lowest heat that my gas burner will burn at, and just to the point where I can get it to dissolve, but it appears I have been inactivating a percentage of the bht.  Will have to figure out a better way.   I think heating to 100 degrees celsius likely will not inactivate too much.  According to this study, heating it to 175 degrees for 2 hours only inactivated 15-30% of the bht.  I think I read the way to heat it was inside a jar placed into a pot of boiling or simmering water.  Will try making a batch that way.  https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s11746-000-0147-9

      Valtrex is worthless against my strain anyways, it does next to nothing, and it irritates my kidneys, so for some strains it will do nothing period.  It is criminal that there are vaccines that have been developed that can't get funding from big pharma.  Seriously hate big pharma.

      To save everyone time in translating, the article is about Trivalent and contains nothing “new” to share.  However, fingers crossed on this one :-)
