messed up

Recommended Posts


had a bad rash down below but never went to the doctor I didnt know what it was but I knew it wasnt normal. then a while after that i noticed a itchy rash on my chest I thought they were connected but then thought I was just being paranoid agian never went to the doctor. now i get lumps all over my face but 3 different doctors i went to say its dermatitis, acne and foliculitus. I've had a couple of swabs taken from my face but came back negative probably cause they werent in their active stages. I don't know what to do I know its herpes cause they itch hurt and my whole face tingles. I feel so dumb that i never went to the doctor when I first had my rash down below so I would've known that it can spread to other parts of your body I will regret it for the rest of my life. Im going to a dermatologist this week and hopfully he will take me seriously. I want to know has anyone else spread it to their face and what are some home remedies I can try

What you've described can be MANY things. Just because it itches and tingles doesn't neccesarily mean it's herpes. There are many skin conditions that spread as a result of touching other areas of the body. Moreover, it could have just surfaced in a new area just because.

I wouldn't go trying any remedies until you are certain what your condition is. If this next doc is certain it's not herpes, I would bet your bottom dollar it's not. I'm always self-diagnosing, swear I have everything I read.:rolleyes: Just last week, my eyes were burning, I convinced myself it was occular herpes. There's a whole slew of conditions that can cause eye burning..

Don't stress over something that may not be. Keep us updated!

      Anyone know anything about potential side effects?

      You obviously can’t read. Why don’t you actually read the article, or the excerpt I posted? Here it is even simpler for you: prostaglandins were shown to enhance the spread of herpes virus in cell culture 26 27 and to inhibit interferon production 27 28 and were implicated in the reactivation of herpetic skin lesions.

      Hormones definitely affect HSV outbreaks according to research. I'm a male but on anti-estrogen medication in constant trouble. Have a look at my thread here: https://honeycomb.click/topic/76903-over-4-years-with-hsv-2-symptoms-keep-getting-worse-with-non-stop-outbreaks-despite-suppressive-therapy-need-help/ 

      First page, 8th post with studies about E2 / Progesterone effects on HSV.

      It's getting pretty terrible now, I don't ever remember the last time I was feeling normal. I'm so sick of this constant flu-like feeling that makes me depressed and very unproductive. I have so many ideas and ambitions for life but I end up just doing the bare minimum due to constantly feeling like shit.  A week ago I tried stopping my anti-estrogen medication if that could have been the cause (it states "infection" in the listed, common side effects). Had my hopes up for a day or two but just got another outbreak this week that makes me want to sleep in bed all day. On top of this, now my breasts hurt because of increased E2 levels. 

      I guess I still have some hopes with new research drugs such as Crispr and Amenalief. I would order Amenalief from Japan immediately, but it costs more than my monthly rent.. I might have to start a business on top of my full time job so I can afford it. Better option than self-pity but extra stress will surely not help with the HSV2 ;)

      Probably the therapy with SADBE helps us to develop a partial immune system on HSV. If you use more SADBE you will develop more immune system on HSV. This is most likely a mechanism of action.
