I have been diagnosed with HSV-2. I already knew I had HSV-1 because I have had cold sore on a rare occasion. So far, I am asymptomatic for the virus below the waist. My question is does anyone know what determines the frequency of outbreaks and why some people don't get them but others have them more often?

Thanks for the relay back-

I don't think they know. Most people either do not have symptoms or they are so mild that they do not suspect that it is HSV.

Hey Lorena, I wish I knew. I have had ghsv2 for 24 years only 2 ob's ever. My last , second ob, was brought on by stress. Before that I stayed dormant for 23 years. I do that supressive daily therapies and that reduces shedding and supresses outbreaks. I talk to many who get ob weekly, monthly, and yearly. I also talk to many who are like me, they had that initial ob, then no more. Some took meds, many did not. We have not passed out h through vital shedding either. It has to be within how we each live and what we do to strengthen our immune systems. It's a mystery and a good question. Take care hon, hugs. Truly, Ace :hithere:

I really don't know, Lorena. to me some are just lucky that way. I have OB's every month. you'll learn how to deal with it like the rest of us. so, don't sweat it too much.

      That’s right, most infections of the one type are in one nerve ganglion. As such, the virus only appears at the skin’s surface where that ganglion reaches to.  This does all come down to the numbers though, if you have no other evidence than a firmly positive HSV infection, the default assumption which is not likely to be wrong is that type 1 is oral and type 2 is genital. A positive swab is the only evidence to the contrary.

      I was having back to back OB's and decided to try several things I had read about here.  The first one was instant gratification:  oil of oregano diluted with fractionated coconut oil.  I could feel another OB coming, tingles, and just spread the oil all over the area.  In a few minutes the tingle was gone.  The lesions and red scarring i had responded well to it too.  Went away promptly.  The second thing was diet.  A person on this forum said they had good results by eating more vegetables, some fruit, meat and mostly using potatoes for carbs.  Like, leaving grains alone.  I decided to leave wheat alone and use other grains occasionally.  I no longer eat chocolate, nuts, seeds, coconut, oats, as these r all potential triggers for an OB.  I take 1000 mg lysine 2 x day in case i unknowingly eat some food that is high in arganine.  So far so good.  Another person on this forum said she took neem capsules 2 x day and hadnt had another outbreak in 2 years.  So i do that too.  It hasnt been long enough for me to make any great claims, but the continuous, never ending breakouts have stopped, i have energy and feel good.

      Is it possible to catch HSV 2 somewhere else other than the penis... And if so does this mean you will not transmit from that area?

      I wouldnt want to give anyone info that they might decide to use against me at some point.  U must tell those that u must tell, but otherwise, i would only unburden myself anonymously, like on a forum.  No judgment or harm here.

      Could you recommend any decent treatment if you know of any?
