Just a few questions.

Did any one remain with the person who infected them with herpes? I could be crazy or not, not sure anymore. Here's my story: My husband have me herpes about 8 yrs ago. My initial ob was so awful I wanted to die. I had never been in so much constant pain and discomfort in my life (and I have kids). It lasted about 8 or 9 weeks, I was misdiagnosed 3 times before going to the er out of frustration and found out what it was. I was completely devastated I had no idea how I contracted it since I had been with my husband over 11 yrs at that point. Found out he was having an affair. We separated for almost two yrs. I didn't have another ob for 7 yrs but in the last yr I have them constantly, as soon as on clears a few days later I get the tingling and itching again then a full rash. It is very uncomfortable, Valtrex hasn't worked or any other meds. I try to do remedies I have found on this site and get some relief. I just soooo stressed out and depressed, I haven't told anyone because I'm embarrassed. What makes matters worse is I SUFFER through OB's all the time and he has never had one. He won't get tested but one of her relatives told me about her and she had a cold sore ob. I don't know what to do to stop or lessen the obs but I'm coming to the end of my rope. Can't handle having sex but the desire is still there, Is there anyone out there that understands? Just so tired of feeling so alone in this.:-?

Hey MSLADY , welcome to our family :) . NO, I divorced my rat bastard first husband because he lied and denied. I am now married to a non H man for 22 years and we have daughter also non H like her father. Have you tried Lysine and Vitamin B12 complex? I have stayed on antivirals & Vit.b12 for the past 25 years. Not Lysine just antivirals & Vit.B12. This vitamin promotes good nerves health, gives us energies (as woman we need this with kids) and relieves stresses. you are not alone anymore with this h. We are here for you support and educations on herpes. Here is a book , it can answer some of your questions. I want you to know also Herpes can lay dormant for decades. Mine stayed Asymptomatic or Dormant for 23 YEARS.. No outbreaks or sores just prodromes like tingles and those are from Stresses which are my biggest triggers. Message me and if I can help. Also please feel free to ask any questions you may have here in the forums, many wonderful supportive people here can help you understand your h. May I ask how were you tested and what type is your herps ? Just because it's in the genital area doesn't mean it is h2. H1 is usually oral / facial area. H2 is usually genital area, as that is their homes. BUT they can switch places and when they do they become less frequent in outbreaks , H1 sheds less and has fewer outbreaks is less contagious and being female its harder for us to pass the herps. Just because your husband didn't show signs doesn't mean he couldn't have had it for years. Even you could have had it for years, remember I stayed dormant over two decades :) . It may be better for him to test. It will give you a baseline. The Igg Herpeselect Elisa is the best test for diagnosing herps. It also shows numerical values too. Please relax and settle in here. Many will come by and give you their knowledge and support too. Take care , hugs Ace :)

Thank you Ace. I was tested via a swab and visually. I will try the b12 vits where would I get lysine. I am just so frustrated with this whole thing right now. It helps to know that I am not a lone. Thanks

MSLady,

I bought Lysine supplements at Walmart but I'm a complete newbie (just found out two days ago) so maybe there is someplace where they are better or not. As of now I'm still in a lot of pain but am thinking I'll go pick up some B12 per Ace's advice above as it doesn't seem to be getting better after 5 Valtrex pills (so far) plus the other things.

Yes, I get Lysine and Vit.b12 complex sublingual , its liquid vit.b with many other b's in it. Lysine will help to keep h from replicating in the body. Vit.b12 complex will give energies, relieve stresses and it promotes.good nerves health. This genital herps lives in the spinal Ganglia Nervous system, base of spine, it helps me with prodromes and combined with my antivirals , it's my key to staying outbreak free. I believe it helps my moods too. Just.my opinion. You can get these supplements and vitamin at Walmart or Walgreens. 1250mg of Lysine, twice a day.and 1500mcg of vitamin b12 complex twice a day. The liquid has a dropper in it. The pills just follow 1500mcg, twice a day..Hope this helps . :).hugs, Ace

      I think you're right about 'having a good flow', i.e. splitting the dosage throughout the day to make most use of it. You're also right about potential strain on your body for overdoses, however there is conflicting information about this based on studies I've read. There are several of studies indicating benefits of high doses of vitamin C for fighting viral diseases. I've done quite a bit of research on this as in the past I used to suffer from common colds, often over one week in duration and up to 6 times a year. With Zinc and Vitamin C I've managed to reduce these to once a year, and their duration to under 6 days. Some of the studies used IV administration of Vitamin C, which is of course different to taking it orally, but some of them had success with high oral doses as well:  Dr. Harri Hemilä from the University of Helsinki, Finland, analyzed the findings of two randomized trials each of which investigated the effects of two vitamin C doses on the duration of the common cold. The first trial administered 3 g/day vitamin C to two study groups, 6 g/day to a third group, and the fourth group was administered a placebo. Compared with the placebo group the 6 g/day dose shortened colds by 17%, twice as much as the 3 g/day doses did. The second trial administered 4 g/day and 8 g/day vitamin C, and placebo to different groups, but only on the first day of the cold. Compared with the placebo group, the 8 g/day dose shortened colds by 19%, twice as much as the 4 g/day dose did. https://www.mdpi.com/2072-6643/9/4/339/htm High dose IV Vitamin C has been shown to be effective against viral infections such as the common cold rhinovirus (Hemila and Herman,1995); avian virus H1N1 (Ely,2007;) Chikungunya (Gonzalez et al. 2014; Marcial-Vega et al,2015); Zika (Gonzalez et al 2016) and influenza (Zarubaeva et al.2017). Also oral supplementation with vitamin C (doses over 3g) appears to be able to both prevent and treat respiratory and systemic infections (Carr and Maggini, 2017). https://isom.ca/article/high-dose-vitamin-c-influenza-case-report/ We had a case in which a patient with herpes zoster did not respond to conventional therapy so we attempted to administer intravenous infusion of vitamin C which resulted in an immediate reduction in the pain. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3111558/

      Hey @Antoinette63 you do absolutely nothing. If infected with HSV-2, then the initial outbreak would have occurred within days of the infections. Symptoms after 4 months are not really likely to have been from that episode.  If she does have a recent infection of herpes, then it will be from her new boyfriend!

      Hang on @viralfrog let’s be rational here. The male body can only usefully metabolise 100mg of vitamin C a day. Any excess does not have any known impact on the body as it doesn’t actually get to where you might be thinking it goes. It goes out via your kidneys, potentially causing toxic effects. The real trick with vitamin C is making sure there is a good flow moving through your intestines such that your body can metabolise the full 100mg easily. To achieve this, you are much better off taking a tablet of about 250mg with each meal. Anything more than 2g a day of vitamin C is not only useless but commences a strain process on your body that may include outcomes including kidney stones.

      Hang on, no one is talking about testing again for herpes. We are suggesting an analysis of the serum in the blisters that will give clues as to the cause.

      Currently I'm taking my Ascorbic acid at two doses throughout the day, 6g at lunch and 6g at dinner. It's already a hassle as I have to dilute it in water, rinse my mouth with coconut oil and then I take a shot of it from a shot glass and rinse my mouth quickly with water after. Even with the coconut oil, I'm worried for my teeth.  I was going to order a capsule filler machine and some gelatin capsules, but realised it will cost me almost the same than just ordering 1g vitamin tablets from iHerb. Also, this means I still have to be eating 12 capsules per day which is not ideal. I wonder if I could figure out some DIY method to be able to squeeze 3-5g of the Ascorbic acid into some coating to be able to swallow it without risking my teeth.  I had a look at liposomal C too, but what put me off was the quick expiration date if making it yourself. Unless I'm wrong, you have to do a new batch like twice a week.
