HSV 1 and 2 orally?


Recommended Posts

I have had HSV 1 since childhood. Is it possible to contract a different strain of HSV 1 orally?


Or, is it possible to get HSV 2 orally even after having HSV 1 for all these years?

I've wondered about this.

First off, biology is not black and white.   Secondly, viral replication doesn't hold the same integrity as human cells so I find it hard to believe that my HSV1 will 100% match someone else's HSV1.  Sure there are conserved parts of the virus but millions and millions of copies of the virus are being made... Are you telling me they're all the same?

Now, if the parts that code for the virus' lipid membrane and the surface proteins all stay the same and the whatever DNA within the capsid are variable then HSV-1 is HSV-1.  If you have HSV1 and you've built up antibodies then it should recognize hsv1 at the surface and prevent it from establishing itself all over again.   

HSV-2 is different.   HSV-2 is more difficult to work with (according to the modern therapeutic vaccine research).  The HSV-2 therapeutic vaccines (1 that I can vividly remember reading about) that I've read about in the past that were dropped had like 20% improvement in symptoms for ppl with HSV2 but like around 80% improvement for those with HSV1.

99% of the statistics out there are out of date, poorly done and have conditions that a majority of the people fail to mention because that "%" is all people consider.

There are plenty of people who are posting across forums talking about their sore in their throat, roof of their mouth, on their lip that had been swabbed/cultured and tested positive for HSV-2.

Oral sex ain't going out of style so you can bet oral HSV2 won't be as rare as people claim it to be.

      Just another set of supporting articles to a potential release date in 2024 giving hope to sufferers whom the standard of care is currently worthless: Promising Progress in clinical trials for Pritelivir (herpescureadvocacy.com) HSV Treatment Readies for Approval — Precision Vaccinations News

      I have not found a cheaper source for Amenalief, and I've searched high and low. I have a thread called "Pritelivir at Last" you may want to follow as I have a strong belief that It may be available to the public in the summer of 2024 and as I find new info, I update the thread immediately. Now, may I suggest a combination of drugs that several others on this forum have found to be very effective over acyclovir alone? Myself and others have found that taking 40mg of omeprazole (Tagamet @dissolvedo2 ) with 1 gram of Valacyclovir in the morning and 1 gram of Valacyclovir in the evening alone for 3 days have had profound effectiveness at stopping outbreaks in their tracks. I'd like to remind you that I am not a doctor and at best I am personal researcher for what works for me. I @lw@ys share my findings with the forum in the hopes to help others alleviate their suffering. There is another drug combo that I have tried myself as well as others on this forum have tried and that I personally feel is a much more effective for myself. This combo is 1 gram of activated charcoal with 1-gram of valacyclovir in the morning followed by 1 gram of valacyclovir in the evening alone, again for 3 days. I have found that this has reduced my outbreaks to almost only once a year and they are mild at worse. Again, just a reminder that this works for me and may not work for you but I always feel that i have to share this with anyone that cannot get this virus under control so I hope my findings can help those of you who cannot achieve relief with the standard treatment alone. The stronger anti-virals come with risks and if I can help anyone avoid those risks then by all means I feel I have done some good in this world. I only ask that you let me know if either of these suggestions work for you so that I can document it in my notes. Good luck my friend!

      Hi @Anxious 1234 Did you get diagnosis for this?

      Hi @WhatDidIDo2023, hopefully all is well with you and your significant other and are still together.   Did she develop any other symptoms after you mentioned her getting itchiness? Was it determined what you had was contagious? Most likely developed a fungal disease and caused her a yeast or uti
