Question about VALTERX and very mild OB - Dangerous ?

Recommended Posts


Hi everyone, i got genital herpes dont know how or where from so... here I am ! At first I was very depressed about it but then again after some research i realised that although there is a big stigma about it, genital herpes is just an awful skin condition ! That's all. All other STD's can be very dangerous for your health while genital herpes is just very annoying.. So for those who worry too much about it like me at first, i strongly advise you to feel good that all you got in your life journey is an innocent skin condition that in addition can be controled..!!!! Remeber that we cant live in steralized ways, even condoms cant protect you completly, they can even break and be infected with something very serious or in the case of herpes dont cover the area, so someday we may catch something.... thank God it only hepres !

I have a question about valtex that i am taking for the past 3 months. I had only a couple of mild outbreaks before i started valtex and now few days ago i had a small itch and burn in the same place i used to have ob's, a kind of extremely small red spot that went away in two days, that is was ssooooooo hard to notice or definetly tell that it is herpes. So, if you take Valtrex could the OB's be so mild that you dont really notice them leading you to have sex with your partener and increase the chance to pass the virus ? or even in the case that the OB is that mild Valtrex still minimizes the "strength" of shedding ? thank you very much !

The studies cite a significant reduction of the probability of spreading the virus while on antiviral treatment, however and unfortunately there is no such thing as 100% effectiveness (0% probability). The antiviral treatment will stop the virus from replicating and affecting more cells thus the dramatic impact you are experiencing in your recent "mild" OB implies a low viral load could then means lower probaility of infecting someone else. Assuming your partner is negative (which will make him/her more susceptible to a new infection), the best preventive method is to avoid sex during any signs of an OB. Me, on the other hand, just take the valtrex when I feel the symptoms of an OB but just like you the OB are becoming less frequent and really mild. My partner, is HSV1+ and has repeadily told me she does not care about the HSV2 so we have sex "freely". So far after several years she has no indication of genital H perhaps becuase of her HSV1 or perhaps of my sporadic use of valtrex or a combination of all plus luck...Hope that helps..

      Really wasn't sure which topic to put this in! I'm guessing a lot of you will have seen the recent news that Mel B was rushed to hospital thinking she was blind from her eye herpes.  I know she's not as famous as she used to be, but I really don't understand why celebrities with a big presence aren't doing anything about this, such as fundraising for a cure or even just talking about it to raise awareness. Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think she's ever spoken about it before!  She clearly suffers from some bad symptoms. Thinking that you've gone blind must have been one of the most terrifying experiences, and to me, after that ordeal I would try and do everything in my power to raise awareness and find a cure.  Maybe she just doesn't know about all the vaccination research that's currently happening, and how many of these places need the extra funding to keep going?  Not sure where I'm going with this 😂 But does anyone think it's worth getting in contact with her about raising some awareness?

      Hey @Alda whatever is going on for your arm you can rest assured it is not at all likely to be herpes. Could the blister type things be from the massage causing irritation, perhaps even contact dermatitis? If you aren't seeing improvement soon consider seeing the doctor but it doesn't strike me as anything of much concern.

      I need help; i went and got a massage and 2 days later my upper arm feels super sore and is red with 3 blister type things, each about a small pea size the place I got a massage at was  not very sanitary , it was hot in there and the masseuse was sweating I think (i do have the down south H but haven’t had a breakout in about a year and I still don’t.) my arm does not itch just super sore. I wonder what is on my arm. any ideas?

      It did! There are combinations you can take that will not give you this effect, I just didn't want to do medication anymore. What I am doing https://www.amazon.com/MakingCosmetics-BHT-4-4oz-125g/dp/B01DE780OS read Steve Fowkes free book BHT1/8 t in coconut liquid MCT chain oil. Extremely hard to dissolve. I leave it for a day, must read Steve Fowkes free book online, overdose gets people dizzy! More is not better! Oils will also not get Rancid if you put some in your cooking oils! whole food vitamin, glutamine 3x one gram, suggested by case9 love it DHEA,25mg, most people who breakout have low levels lugols iodine worked way to four drops. Fulvic acid minerals. Thyriod granular meds   When I used to have obs I used monolaurin and st.John s wort. I used diaper rash cream for obs I also still spray genitals with zinc sulfate mixed with water. I learned it kills any virus plus summer sweat won't smell at all!  There is one thing I will not be without and that's BHT and zinc sulfate
