Will Be Going To An Infectious Disease Specialist

Recommended Posts

guy1968

Hi all,

I was just diagnosed last week with HSV1 - Oral.

I have an appointment this week with a doctor (specialist) of all infectious disease - I dont know what additional tests I can have done. Hopefully, I could learn more about what I have, how I can take care of myself and protect others.

If you have any questions - email me and I will ask for you. God bless you all and I hope if you're in physical or emotional distress that God will help you comfort.

Just my two cents, after you go to your appointment, if your diagnosis is definitively herpes, I would rely primarily on natural treatments on, because I believe that they work much better with no side effects versus conventional treatment, take care

Thanks I have been taking 2 pills of Lysine at 1500 and 2 pills of Zinc at 100mg. Plus a lot of Vitamin C (Orange Juice). I also just stopped smoking - cigs and pot. I was exposed about a month ago - probably infected 3 weeks ago. I havent had an outbreak. I know I got infected recently because my antbodies were really high (report suggested early infection) and in hindsight the signs were all there. Do you have any idea as to when how long to expect the first outbreak if any? I heard some people do not get outbreaks.

      Postherpetic neuralgia 15% of the time is hsv1. It lives in your nerve ganglia. I don't see why that's so far fetched when it is well supported by research.

      I have HSV & foot nerve pain. I am 100% sure it's from HSV. My Infectious Disease Dr, very well known in NJ, said it is a possibility, he is not ruling it out. There are many strains of HSV & the one I have affected my feet.  I take L-Lysine, Daily Complete Vitamins & Vitamin B-12. My heart goes out to you. I will pray you find relief. Keep your head up & think positive. Sending hugs. Keep us posted

      The chance of getting some HPV-Strain in life (as a person that is not abstinent) is literally about 99% i read. 
      And in 90% of cases the virus is gone after 2 years. And the chance of cancer is looooots smaller than 10% - you just go get your pap smears, so if something happens they know right away and they can treat it. Getting a positive pap smear at some point in life is super-common as a woman.

      I'd like to thank everyone for their input. Let's please keep things civil. I am going to continue with Acyclovir, until I feel my symptoms disappear. If they do not subside, I plan on consulting a physician again.

      So... this would be a revolutionary simple Solution, to an extreme problem: transmitting and getting STD's where condoms don't help.  And people don't give a fuck and noone answers.    Now we just have to find out if it works.  - Does it hinder herpes transmissions (and perhaps also other stuff like hpv) - What is the cost (per sex) - What is the practicality
