outbreak question

Blessed despite

Is it normal to have itching without sores with this virus? Is this considered an outbreak? I am not in a relationship and do not plan to be for some time but I am strongly considering getting on antivirals as I do not have very many days where everything feels normal even though it looks it. I do realize that I need to be able to recognize the symptoms though I tend to think that everything is HSV 2 related these days. Could use some insight. Thanks

Hey Blessed , yes the itches can be a sign that the virus is active. I get tingles, at the base of spine, and it feels like ants crawling. I get the itches there as well. I have ghsv2 and had anus h also. I take antivirals daily for supressive therapies. I use Vit.b12 complex, It's a sublingual and goes under the tongue. It helps with stresses, gives energy and promotes nerves health. It does give me some relief from those symptoms. But being on antivirals doesn't mean you will supress the symptoms totally. My stress is my biggest trigger, so destressing is very important. I use a lot of aroma therapies and I take anti anxieties medications. I just had a second outbreak almost a year ago. It was stress induced. It was a hard time, my only child went off to college and with husbands job, only home 2 or 3 days a week. I felt very overwhelmed and had 2nd ob in 23 years. My h stayed dormant after my initial outbreak. Imagine my surprise :gigglegiggle: . I love my meds they reduce shedding and supress outbreaks. Hope this helps honey. Take care, Ace :hithere:

      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.
