Ok so Ive knowingly had hsv2 for the past 3 yrs...I don't get the severe outbreaks that I used to but the last one that I had at the end of Aug./beginning of Sept. was a BEAST of an outreak.:madd: It was on the outside of my vagina in two areas on the same side. So fast forward to the past couple of weeks...Ive started going back to the gym, which I love, where Ive been doing an hour of cardio, 30 min on the eliptical and 30 min on the treadmill, and about 20 min in weight training. Since Ive returned I noticed that the area where I had that beast of an outbreak is irritated, sometimes itchy, Im not in any pain, and no burning and no pain to the touch. This is driving me NUTS b/c the one thing that I enjoy doing is now uncomfortable...has anyone else gone through this. Ive gone to the dr and he told me that exercise can cause this from sweat and friction but I just wanted my herpes family here to give me some insight, tips, or whatever to help me out.

Thanks in Advance!

      Amenamevir has a plasma half-life of 8-9 hours (as opposed to 2-3 hours for acyclovir), which means you're actively suppressing the virus for a much longer part of the day. Add to that the non-linear synergy of different mechanisms, and for many this combination could mean full symptom relief. We don't know yet, but it's not impossible. Can't wait for Amanalief to get approval for HSV and come to the US. It's all up to the FDA really. https://accp1.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/cpdd.630

      I think Dr. Jerome is just being cautious. I've followed what he's done and have 100% confidence in him. Predicting the exact number of years to a cure would be hard, but their last article about HSV makes me think it can't be too far off.

      Did you ever find out if this was herpes or not?

      @GotMeAtLast I doubt the doctor actually told you that, that doesn’t explain why you kept coming here looking for validation.  By your own admission, you have had oral HSV-1 for years. Further you have never swabbed positive from your genital region. Everyone is allowed to form their own conclusions on the basis of that truth. If you wish to conclude you have genital herpes, that’s OK. If I want to conclude you don’t, that’s OK.
