resistant to medication

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I just found out about this forum. It gives me a little hope again.

Here's my story.

I first had the genital herpes infection 4 years ago.

I had my first relapse after 2 years.

Since then it has been constant.

I've been in hospital for a few months because the doctors don't know what else they can do.

I'm out of hospital but take daily 2 times 800mg Aciclovir. Besides I take supplements of vitamins, vitamin C and lysine. I do constantly have little cuts but not as severe as when I was in hospital.

I'm getting desperate as in my country (in Western Europe) they can't help me more than this.

I'm single but 'd love to have a family someday and I'm desperate to find a solution, that's why I am looking for a specialist - anywhere in the world - who can help me with my situation. Where can I find such a doctor?

Thank you for your help.

thx

Thank you.

I'm longing for the first day without any cuts and not feeling tired.

I'm longing for being able to date again ànd having sexual activity with that.

I'm just desperate after 2 years.

I can take one more heavier medication, that's Valaciclovir, but if I do that and I get resistent, there is no solution anymore.

Please let me know if there is any specialist in the world about this virus.

You should definitely try Valtrex. You may need a heavy daily dose of 1000mg. I developed resistance to acyclovir as well. Now, Im on Valtrex and it has worked for almost a year, but I'm developing resistance again. I will have to go back to old school medicine if I continue to develop resistance. I know your pain. I have had a continuous outbreak for over two years. Miserable.... I never slept around and always used protection besides with my three long term partners and I still ended up with this contagious crap. This virus refuses to give up. There is a drug called AIC316 that has had successful phase II clinical trials and it nearly eliminates all outbreaks and drastically reduces the risk of transmission. There has been no evidence of drug resistance in clinical trials so far. The problem is getting it to market sooner than later. Go to the herpes research forum and you will find plenty of discussions about the medication. This is the next best treatment before a cure if you know what I mean. Hope this helps you see a brighter future.

      They did a hole punch as a swab for me, requested a PCR and it was not done. And they don't swab with cotton my other was swabbed with a rough surface to pick up skin.

      Well, if I were you I would totally tell him. It is important that he knows what he has and gets tested, that way he can be more careful in the future and avoid transmission to other partners. It's true that you can't stay mad at him forever and I thinks it's very mature from you to put the cards on the table, it's the right thing to do.  You don't have to accuse him, you just have to hit him with the facts, I think handing him your test results is a good idea, that way you can see how he reacts, maybe he knew he had it, maybe he didn't. When you dated a few months ago did you guys use protection?  I got it from someone who knew he had it but "thought" nothing would happen to me because he was asymptomatic at that moment.  Best of luck!

      No, genital HSV-1 transmission from genital sex to an uninfected person does happen, it is rare in its own degree. It happens to about 1% of couples in the discordant situation described each year. If your partner suggests he didn't know he had genital HSV-1, then I'd suggest he told a porkie pie! This compares to the 0.0001% or lower annual chance of reinfection! So no, there is no need to feel sad at all. You also seem to make out that having HSV-1 is some form of death sentence. It is usually the opposite. The cohort of people with HSV-1 are as healthy if not more so than those without HSV-1 and have similar or less morbidity (aggregate symptoms, pains etc.) than those without HSV-1. There is nothing impaired about a person having genital HSV-1. No shame, concerns, health deficiencies etc.  No fate but what we make! Choose a good fate!
