What happens after you have HSV-1 or HSV-2

Recommended Posts

Macalon

Once somebody becomes infected with a herpes virus, the virus never leaves one's body. After the first herpes outbreak, the virus moves on the skin cells to neural cells. The virus stays within the nerve cells forever. But it really usually just stays presently there. In this stage, the virus is reportedly dormant, or asleep. But it really can become active once again.

Some things that could trigger herpes are:

Stress

Illness

Fever

Sun exposure

Menstrual durations

Surgery

Lean

      Diagnosed a year ago. Tried suppression therapy to no avail. Dr prescribed 500mg Valtrex increased to 1000g no help. Two HIV test negative. The worst experience ever. Tried oil of oregano, olive leaf extract, lysine, Multi vitamin. Just read because I’m peri menopausal it might be hormones. Outbreaks are constant hsv 2.  If anyone can can relate, I’m pleading for insight.

      Hi walkthetalk can you please give us more details about your experience with synergy as for how long you been in it, you mention you didn’t get outbreaks do you still feel the flares etc, are you planing to get retested?

      The medications are mainly based on disrupting replication. I am not aware of medications for herpes with the purpose of reducing antibodies directly. Do you have an example?

      I've been reading up on alot of this and I'm just curious about the meds they offer here. They stop it from replicating and others keep the antibodies down. Just a thought and I'd appreciate any input on this. Wouldn't you much rather have high antibodies for this so the immune system can keep it at bay. Or am I all the way off?
