Herpes Cure Research Board - Welcome!

Recommended Posts


Welcome to the cure board!  Here is a little bit of information to get you started on this board and on HSV treatment and cure research that is going on.

  1. The Wikipedia page Herpes simplex research is a good place to see an overview of what research is underway.  As with all Wikipedia pages, be cautious of what you read unless you are provided with a citation with a verifiable source.  Just because you read it on a website doesn't mean that it's true.
    1. Information on vaccines can be found here (with more detail here) and a history of where vaccines come from can be found here.
    2. Information on how CRISPR/Cas9 works can be found here.
    3. Priteliver, an antiviral candidate, is also under investigation (and orally here).
  2. When reading information regarding research, it's important to have healthy skepticism.  That doesn't mean everything you read is necessarily true or false, but there are claims out there that are not backed up by science.  This is a good page to read regarding what is science and what is not.  And here's a fun YouTube video from John Oliver on the importance of being a critical reader or consumer of news when it comes to science.
  3. Don't be afraid to use the search function in the top right corner.  Chances are that information about a topic has already been posted.  This can help you learn from conversations already had or find even more links about a particular topic.
  4. If posting a new thread, try to follow these suggestions:
    1. look for existing threads on that topic: take a look down the page and use the search function to see if your topic (or article) has already been posted.  If so, it's preferable to post in the same thread so you and others can benefit from information that has already been shared.
    2. put in a descriptive title: "Cool article on herpes" is not a title that helps potential readers really define what your post is about.  Compare this to "Recent Interview from CEO of Gene Editing Inc on HSV" is much more helpful to potential readers.  Think to yourself, "does this title give readers an idea of my post, before they click on it?" to help guide you.
    3. use tags: tags are like key search terms that help those searching find what they are looking for.  For example, if a recent research article was posted by Dr. Drew at Washington University regarding a new DNA vaccine, you could use the following tags: drew, washington university, DNA vaccine.

If you have any ideas or recommendations for this sticky, please let me or another moderator know :)

      Hello,    I’m three weeks into my first outbreak, the initial ob lasted a little over a week and was excruciating. It started to calm down and I was just waiting for the red marks it had left to disappear completely when another outbreak occurred. I’m really frustrated that it’s not going anywhere and I was just wondering if this is normal? The leaflet I got did say 2-4 weeks but I was hoping to hear others experiences.    Thank you so much

      Hello,    I’m going through the same thing (I was diagnosed a couple of weeks ago) and I was just wondering if this stopped or if you’re still getting recurrent obs? I’m not sure what to do just feeling really down that it’s not going away.    Thank you for your time

      Hi,  I was very recently diagnosed with HSV-1 (just over two weeks ago) and I have had “two outbreaks” in that time. The initial outbreak happened three weeks ago and lasted about 8/9 days. It was extremely painful and I was very ill, unable to move or work and completely worn down. The blisters mainly disappeared but I still had some blemishes and discomfort so I knew my body was still fighting the virus off however, this then turned straight back into tingling, itching and then blisters again straight away. I don’t know if this is even classed as a recurrence because I never got completely over the first outbreak but I am so disheartened to have had it happen again immediately after the initial outbreak. The silver lining is that the blisters are smaller, fewer and significantly less painful.   In short, I had an outbreak immediately after my first outbreak and I want to know if this is normal to get two lots of blisters in one go?     Thank you so much for your time    K x
