My Diary DMSO, oregano oil, coconut oil, L-lysine

Recommended Posts

TheAlchemist

Hey i have been using something for a while now and I'm convinced it works. I don't want to be greedy so I'll share my recipe and I'd be interested to know how u get on. Can be used as a daily ointment on the area effected or 3 x a day when u sense an outbreak coming on applied with cotton wool.

25 ml fractioned coconut oil

25 ml virgin olive oil

12 drops Tea Tree oil

20 drops origano oil

 8 drops propolis liquid

 

Mix well before use and if any irritation increase olive/coconut oils

 

Good luck

I also want to keep u up to date with my progress. I use the above to treat/stop an outbreak and have recently started the following to work on ridding myself of the virus altogether.

Morning and evening 5 drops of an oregano oil mixed with unrefined olive oil under the tongue. Mix 8-10 drops of oregano oil to every ounce of olive oil. Shake well before use.

I will rub 4 drops of oregano oil mixed with pure coconut oil at the base of my spine. Only recently added dmso to this.

 

Well it's  been 3 weeks so far and no hint of an ob. Ill keep u posted

doh!

Where exactly do you put the ointment-ie where is the base of your spine?

Feel down your back from your waist, follow the curve out to the point that is furthest outward. From that point back up your spine for about 6" will cover your root and sacral chakras for optimal healing.

Makes no sense.

The virus lives in the nerves of the ganglion. When it activates, it travels from the cell body of those nerve cells, along the axon, and eventually to the synaptic knob just below the skin at the location where the infection entered your body. In other words, the skin of your genitals. When you apply your witches brew to the skin area where your ganglion resides, what do you think actually happens that would in anyway stymie an OB?

I hear a lot of "spread this on your spine" stuff from herbalists with no logical explanation as to how it is supposed to work.

To cas9. My way of thinking is if the virus is trying to break out in an environment thats designed to kill it, then it will be unsuccessful or at least less successfull. I didnt pick these things at random, i  done a lot of research/trial and error and wouldn't bother posting if I hadn't had some success with it.

Heres a few threads I've read amoungst countless others.

No Alchemist, that's not how it works. Your potion does not pass through your skin, absorb into the nerve bodies of your infected ganglion, and subsequently kill the virus. That doesn't happen. Therefore, the virus will persist in the nerve. Each nerve cell in the ganglion, is comprised of the nerve body, a nerve axon, and the synaptic knob. Here's a picture of a nerve cell:

https://images.search.yahoo.com/yhs/search;_ylt=A0LEVvxWReJYqSYAtSUnnIlQ;_ylu=X3oDMTByMjB0aG5zBGNvbG8DYmYxBHBvcwMxBHZ0aWQDBHNlYwNzYw--?p=Nerve+Cell&fr=yhs-mozilla-004&hspart=mozilla&hsimp=yhs-004#id=1&iurl=http%3A%2F%2Fres.cloudinary.com%2Fdk-find-out%2Fimage%2Fupload%2Fq_80%2Cw_1440%2FAW_Nerve_impulse2_tcnrmm.jpg&action=click

The left side orange thing with the purple in the center is the nerve body. The long yellow thing in the middle of the diagram is the axon. And the axon then leads to the thing on the right with all those smaller orange branches with circles at the end. The circles at the end are the synaptic knobs, which are just under your skin. But not the skin at the base of your spine; the skin of your genitals where the virus entered.

So the way you were infected was the virus got on your genitals, broke through the epidermis/skin, entered the synaptic knob, traveled down the axon, and entered the nerve cell body of the ganglion, establishing latency. This occurred in many of the nerve cells when you got your infection, not just one nerve cell. And it all started at your genitals and all of it ended up in multiple nerve bodies in your ganglion.

When the latent viruses in the nerve bodies awakes from time to time, it travels down the axon of each infected nerve cell body, and replicates in the area of the synaptic knob. Those new viral particles emerge from the synaptic knob and infect your skin cells at your genital area, and replicate in those cells also. The result is lesions/sores. In the meantime the latent virus returns to the nerve cell body where it goes into dormancy. When it wakes up again, it repeats the above process, giving you another OB.

The path is always the same; the infected nerve cell body in the ganglion, to the skin of the genital area where you were infected, back and forth. Putting your salve at the base of the spine will do nothing. Of course if you think it's doing something, that's what we call the placebo effect.

Do you know much about DMSO cas? I'm interested to get your opinion on it. From what i read It has a uniquique ability to penetrate nerve cells and in laymen's terms is also absorbed along with anything its mixed with into the body. I'm no doctor, i take everything I read with a pinch of salt, I've tried many alternatives to my current regime and there was no "placebo effect" achived then. My "potion" at the top isn't a cure, I'm not suggesting this is will surf up your ganglions and kill anything that moves. I've found if I catch it early enough it prevents any sores developing or massivley reduces the recovery period. It kicks the shit out of acyclovir (for me). I dont take those anymore as the make me feel sick and seem to have next to no effect. The DMSO & oregano oil on the area of the spine is something I'm trying as I have read a lot of interesting articles and testimonials on it and I think its worth a shot. If it fails I'll post it up here as knowone seems to post the long term results of this. It's almost 4 weeks now and so far so good :)

Week 5 getting way to confident. I have kept my eating and drinking reletively healthy these last few months up until this last week.

I hadn't felt so symptom free since the b4 the diagnosis and endulged in a lot of the no go food and drink feeling invincible :/

Dissapointed to say had an ob 2 days ago, albeit the most minor ob to date as has all but dissappeared already.

The info I've read says it's quite normal to have an ob during this treatment so im cracking on.

5 weeks my new record :) Resetting the clock.

And how was your ob's before this natural remedy ? 5 weeks without an ob and before it ? I am thinking to do the same remedy but without the coconut  oil I heard it's very bad for herpes but the rest are very good. But I don't have visible blisters only the 24/7 itching I don't know if it could work for me or not will try and update as well we have to find ourselves alternative solutions since the medical community left us like the street dogs

Hi Mackie. Before my obs were every 2 weeks and pretty much every time after sex. I have stopped applying to the base is my back since my last post, but continue to use this little ointment which is approx 10 drops dmso, 5 drops oregano oil and 15-20 drop fractioned coconut oil. I randomly apply it like every 2 to 3 days and every time after sex to the area thats affected. I haven't had an ob since the last and it's about 3 months now!:)

I also maintain 1 lysine tablets a day and 1 vit c both 1000mg

The only other things I have changed is completely cutting out coffee and stopping the occasional cigarette iused to have socially. So far so good. I actually feel normal again!!!!

Cas - thanks for that explanation, very helpful. I have also found the "apply X at base of spine" to be a bit voodoo but to each his own.

In same vein, given the process you described and many people whose HSV2 goes dormant; let me ask your opinion on the following. can the virus be reached at the synaptic knobs on your genitals? If a substance with proven anti-HSV2 qualities hijacked the virus at that point; could it be suppressed? Is that how conventional AV meds work? Just trying to understand it a bit more - got it a few months ago. Thanks.

In the US, and mainstream medicine, this is the common theory but in alternative medicine, they look at the body/healing in a completely different way. In Europe, most specifically Germany and France there is plenty of evidence that shows that oils do enter cells. Also, there are internal oil treatments. I don't know about herpes cures but its very difficult to get a hold of their medical journals, also the FDA and pharmaceutical companies have no interest in pursuing that line of treatment.

 8 drops propolis liquid

 

Mix well before use and if any irritation increase olive/coconut oils

 

Good luck

I also want to keep u up to date with my progress. I use the above to treat/stop an outbreak and have recently started the following to work on ridding myself of the virus altogether.

Morning and evening 5 drops of an oregano oil mixed with unrefined olive oil under the tongue. Mix 8-10 drops of oregano oil to every ounce of olive oil. Shake well before use.

I will rub 4 drops of oregano oil mixed with pure coconut oil at the base of my spine. Only recently added dmso to this.

 

Well it's  been 3 weeks so far and no hint of an ob. Ill keep u posted

Still going strong with this. such long periods between obs now and the few (2 since first post) I've had were to be expected. i.e. long periods with no rest, high stress + silly diet. One thing I have learned is that storing mix in an eye dropper bottle seems to maintain its potency. I had it in an open top dish b4 but seemed to get weaker as time went on. 

Has anyone tried this?

 

This is all I use now only when needed as above along with olive leaf extract for a day or two capsules if I feel any prodrone symptoms

 

oh and one 1 x lysine per day for good measure

I applaud your dedication to self and your pursuit to finding what is most appropriate for your healing. I question why you are using Fractionated Coconut Oil over regular virgin coconut oil? That process removes the lauric acid which is an hsv fighter.

"One of the fatty acids that’s mostly removed in fractionation is lauric acid—a type of “healthy” saturated fat found in high quantities in coconut and palm kernel oils. It’s a great fat to have in skin care because it’s so moisturizing and cleansing. Removing it, though, gives us the liquid product . Once the lauric acid and other long-chain fatty acids are gone, you’re still left with a lot of good stuff, including medium chain fatty acids like capric, caprylic, myristic and palmitic, all of which retain their super-moisturizing capabilities. You also still have the natural antioxidants, which protect from environmental stressors, and nutrients like vitamins A, C, and E."

If it is just for the convenience of liquid, putting a small amount in your hand will liquefy it quick enough. You are using essential oils and they degrade quickly in oxygen so yes keeping covered and cool is important to the integrity and strength. Did you do the calculations on what percentage of essential oils you are using to carrier oil and wondered why you chose that number? Not saying anything wrong just wondered your rational for that strength.

I hope you are aware to give your body a break from these strong essential oils after a period of time to allow it to rest and absorb because too much of a good thing can also be hard on the body.

Great that you seem to be reducing your OB frequency but you are dreaming if you think you are killing the virus in your nerve cells. Maybe the virus you’re shredding externally by that’s it. You’d have to open your spine and rub into your nerve cells.

I don't think I'm killing the virus in my nerve cells, did I say that? I gave up on the whole rubbing dmso and oregano oil into the base of the spine thing as it it wasn't great for the skin and I didn't really note any remarkable results. 

Just using the oil blend for management now. if a cure comes out great. for now I'm quite content feeling that I got a handle on it.

Apologies. I actually did go back to regular coconut oil. I did use the other stuff for convenience but I found the regular Coconut oil dissolves into oil once mixed with rest of the oils anyway.

Superb news! I thought you were long gone, thanks for coming back in!!!! Happy dancing with you!:barmy:

This is a pretty complete list at the bottom of one of your articles https://justherpes.com/herpesremedies/natural-herpes-remedies-list-home-cures/

Quote

Aloe Vera

Research from 1999 showed that Aloe Vera cream actually heals genital herpes outbreaks when applied to the infected area, and fast, in 70% of study participants. Aloe cream seems to work best, but freezing pieces of aloe and using them topically can also help. (Read more about Aloe Cream for herpes and where to buy).

Baking Soda

Some say baking soda can improve the alkalinity of the body’s pH, which helps prevent outbreaks. Others use it topically for faster healing of sores, but warn that it burns. We’re not sure we recommend this one.

BHT

BHT is usually used as a food preservative for fats and oils, and that’s the only thing it is approved for by the FDA. However, it has documented anti-viral properties and some herpes sufferers report success using it to stop outbreaks by taking it in small doses. Others warn that it may be toxic in higher doses. This is a remedy that is more controversial than others.

Cayenne

A teaspoon of cayenne pepper in a glass of warm water may help stop outbreak symptoms, including neuralgia. A derivative of cayenne, Capsaicin ointment may help relieve pain when applied topically.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is a fantastic, proven natural herpes remedy. Coconut oil’s lauric acid is proven to have antiviral effects. The body converts it to monolaurin, which destroys the coating around lipid-enclosed viruses. Specifically, it has been shown to disintegrate the herpes simplex virus in in vitro testing. (Recommended: Nutiva Coconut Oil).

DMSO

Another controversial home remedy for herpes.

Epsom Salt

Most people know that Epsom salt can be added to baths to relieve muscle cramps. It’s also sometimes used as a natural herpes remedy to make herpes blisters heal faster. Just soak in a tub of it for 10-30 minutes. Epsom salt has lots of other health benefits, too. (Read more about Epsom Salt for herpes).

Grapefruit seed extract

Grapefruit seed extract is a natural disinfectant that also kills viruses, bacteria and fungi. It is generally considered to be safe for people who are not allergic. It is used by mixing one part of the extract with nine parts water and then dabbing this mixture onto the affected area with a cotton swab.

Hydrogen Peroxide

Some people report results from diluting food-grade hydrogen peroxide in distilled water. It’s doubtful that doctors would recommend this.

Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis)

Lemon balm can be used by soaking a cotton ball with lemon balm extract and dabbing it on any signs of a herpes outbreak. Lemon balm tea can be used to wash the area as well. It’s available as a tincture, a tea, or in pill form (like these lemon balm softgels). Adding a bit of lemon balm to water everyday may even cut back on the amount of times you have a herpes outbreak. (Read more about Lemon Balm for herpes and where to buy).

Lysine

Lysine and arginine are amino acids found in foods. Of all the natural herpes remedies, earmark this one now. It’s important to balance these in your diet so you are consuming more lysine than arginine if you want to have fewer herpes outbreaks.

Manuka Honey

High-grade manuka honey is the only type of honey that should be used for natural herpes treatment. A 2002 review of Manuka honey’s antibacterial properties concluded that it was potentially useful for many types of wounds. It is used by dabbing it on the infected area several times per day. (Read more about and buy Manuka Honey for herpes).

Monolaurin

Monolaurin supplements have been shown to reduce viral loads in test subjects. The body can also make this helpful substance by consuming coconut oil.

Neem Oil

Neem is a medicinal herb that has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine and is nicknamed “Nature’s Drugstore”. Neem oil can be applied topically to treat herpes, and used as neem tea to prevent outbreaks. (Read more about Neem Oil for herpes and where to buy).

Olive Leaf Extract

Olive leaf extract is used to treat herpes by taking 500mg tablets. It contains elenolic acid, which has the ability to inhibit viruses. The tablets are reputed to relieve outbreak sores, increase healing time, and restore energy levels that may have been depleted by the virus’ active phase. One private study showed that olive leaf extract tablets treated an outbreak more effectively than prescription acyclovir, which just goes to show the usefulness of natural herpes remedies. (Read more about Olive Leaf for herpes and where to buy).

Oil of Oregano

Reputed to kill viruses, this beneficial (but funny tasting) oil can be used by taking drops under the tongue and by applying it to the affected area. Dr. Cass Ingram’s book, “The Cure is in the Cupboard,” even recommends rubbing it over the area of the spinal column to help fight off genital herpes! Oil of Oregano also makes your body’s pH level more alkaline, which prevents outbreaks. The highest grade oil of oregano will be labeled “P73” on the bottle. If you can get past the taste, this might be for you.

Red Marine Algae

Specific types of red marine algae are immunity boosters with antiviral properties, especially known for being effective for virus sufferers. Red algae is usually taken orally in capsule form to prevent or stop herpes outbreaks from HSV-1 and HSV-2. (Read more about Red Marine Algae for herpes and where to buy).

Tea Tree Oil

Of all the natural herpes remedies, tea tree oil seems to be the most popular and well-known. This herpes remedy has a reputation for relieving both oral herpes and genital herpes within hours. It’s a natural antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal that can boost immunity and fight off infections. (Read more about Tea Tree Oil for herpes and where to buy).

Visarpa Clay

Visarpa clay is an Ayurvedic treatment for herpes that is known to stimulate the healing process and relieve pain. It can be applied to the infected area as a paste, and is sold primarily online. (Read more about Visarpa Clay for herpes and where to buy).

Vitamin C

Vitamin C can be taken orally on a regular basis to stop herpes outbreaks, and applied topically to areas affected by herpes outbreaks.

Zinc

Zinc is used as a supplement or as a topical zinc cream. Studies have shown that zinc cream can deactivate the herpes virus and can inhibit the virus’ reproduction. There are also many zinc-rich foods you could add to your diet. (Read more about Zinc for herpes and where to buy).

Superb news! I thought you were long gone, thanks for coming back in!!!! Happy dancing with you!:barmy:

This is a pretty complete list at the bottom of one of your articles https://justherpes.com/herpesremedies/natural-herpes-remedies-list-home-cures/

 

I am pretty much taking most of the items on that list. I did stop taking the Red Marine Algae a couple days ago as I am trying to shrink the list of supplements down to what exactly works for me. I do like the coconut oil. It's great to rub on and it tastes just as good. Of course I don't think I can do more than a couple spoonfuls at a time. I do hope this one works as I started using it in my eggs as well.

No Alchemist, that's not how it works. Your potion does not pass through your skin, absorb into the nerve bodies of your infected ganglion, and subsequently kill the virus. That doesn't happen. Therefore, the virus will persist in the nerve. Each nerve cell in the ganglion, is comprised of the nerve body, a nerve axon, and the synaptic knob. Here's a picture of a nerve cell:

https://images.search.yahoo.com/yhs/search;_ylt=A0LEVvxWReJYqSYAtSUnnIlQ;_ylu=X3oDMTByMjB0aG5zBGNvbG8DYmYxBHBvcwMxBHZ0aWQDBHNlYwNzYw--?p=Nerve+Cell&fr=yhs-mozilla-004&hspart=mozilla&hsimp=yhs-004#id=1&iurl=http%3A%2F%2Fres.cloudinary.com%2Fdk-find-out%2Fimage%2Fupload%2Fq_80%2Cw_1440%2FAW_Nerve_impulse2_tcnrmm.jpg&action=click

The left side orange thing with the purple in the center is the nerve body. The long yellow thing in the middle of the diagram is the axon. And the axon then leads to the thing on the right with all those smaller orange branches with circles at the end. The circles at the end are the synaptic knobs, which are just under your skin. But not the skin at the base of your spine; the skin of your genitals where the virus entered.

So the way you were infected was the virus got on your genitals, broke through the epidermis/skin, entered the synaptic knob, traveled down the axon, and entered the nerve cell body of the ganglion, establishing latency. This occurred in many of the nerve cells when you got your infection, not just one nerve cell. And it all started at your genitals and all of it ended up in multiple nerve bodies in your ganglion.

When the latent viruses in the nerve bodies awakes from time to time, it travels down the axon of each infected nerve cell body, and replicates in the area of the synaptic knob. Those new viral particles emerge from the synaptic knob and infect your skin cells at your genital area, and replicate in those cells also. The result is lesions/sores. In the meantime the latent virus returns to the nerve cell body where it goes into dormancy. When it wakes up again, it repeats the above process, giving you another OB.

The path is always the same; the infected nerve cell body in the ganglion, to the skin of the genital area where you were infected, back and forth. Putting your salve at the base of the spine will do nothing. Of course if you think it's doing something, that's what we call the placebo effect.

If you google “where is the nerve ganglion,” you’ll see that it is at the point where the nerves leave the spinal cord. So, putting the oil at the base of the spine makes sense, because that’s where the ganglion are, and that is where the latent virus is hiding. Now. The big question is... can the oil be absorbed through the skin and muscle and reach the nerve... and pass through the cell wall?  I don’t know, but I’m trying this method as well. It can’t hurt. Oregano oil has a lot of heating properties besides potentially killing The Herp. I’ve never heard of DMSO, but I’m going to look into it now!

Cells allow entry via their receptors. Those receptors are like a lock. If a substance has the right key to that lock, only then is the substance allowed entry. Oregano oil molecules are not allowed entry into a nerve cell. End of story.

By the way, even if a substance was allowed into a cell does not mean it can kill the virus in the cell; i.e. What a substance can do outside of a person does not necessarily correlate to what happens inside the cell.

As far as absorbing through the skin, and past the muscle, NO.

Try a Lysine supplement for cold sores

      Around 3 years I go I contracted HSV2 from my now ex boyfriend. 
      At first it started off as a small tear..straight after sex. I assumed it was just due to the Brazilian wax I had gotten earlier that day. (I now know that that is probably what aided in me contracting HSV2) the next day, the year turned into a blister, then more appeared in the coming days. It was horrible. I had a funny colour discharge and it burned. I would sit in the bath just to pee. I went to a sexual health clinic in london where they took swans and examined me. They gave me meds to take and told me that it did indeed look like herpes. But that I should wait for my results to come back,and take meds in the mean time. 
      I got a call a few days later saying that I tested postive. I asked her if it was for HSV1 or HSV2.. as I had done a lot of research by then to know the distinct difference.  She confirmed that it was HSV2.. to this day I have not had a blood test. As swans are usually most accurate at detecting HSV.
      at first I was in denial. I didn’t get out breaks that often luckily.. and if I did it was just a. Small blister on my labia to the right of my clitorous. I would occasionally get some nerve tingling in my legs which I put down to asymtomatic shedding. I have never been on antivirals as my symptoms were barely noticeable 
      I started dating someone a year later and I told them about my HSV2. He took about an hour to read up on it.. and never mentioned it again. We carried on our relationship. I never took antivirals and we did not ever use condoms. To this day he has not contracted HSV. For a long time I somehow managed to forget that i had this horrible disease. I lived normally and happily..outbreaks were barely even noticeable. I guess this is because I had no reason to think about it. He treated me no different. Sadly our relationship has ended, however we are still friends. He has never ever mentioned my HSV to me since the day I told him.
      But now 3 years on I am dating a new guy that I really really care about. I see us getting married and having kids. 
      Buy one day We were talking about his sexual partners and he informed me that he always uses protection as he has had a herpes scare in the past and that it was the worst time of his life. Luckily he tested negative.
      Because of this I don’t know if he will ever accept me. And I am heartbroken. I cry all the time and am very very depressed...to the point of thinking about suicide. I don’t want to live my life like this. I look at females and envy them for being normal and for being able to have such carefree sex, never having to worry about this. 
      Even if this guy isn’t the one for me. I wonder if I will ever be able to find someone without feeling like this. 
      This world is cruel. And evil. And unfair. I don’t deserve this and neither do any of us. Life sucks
      im pretty sure these companies have a cure but are feeding us useless antivirals in order to make money. Our lives mean nothing to them. We mean nothing To them.
      emotionally I a ruined. I don’t see my body the same. And I hate my vagina. 
      The thought of having to take pills for the rest of my life just because of  my stupid ex boyfriend tears my heart apart. Why me? I was good.. Now I am tainted and undesirable.
      I’ve been looking online for natural remedies/cures. Although I’m not gullible enough to believe in paying money for a natural cure. 
      I’m in going to try Dr Sebi’s cell food diet. They say it is an intracellular cleanse that can rid the body of any disease. But it is a lifestyle..not a quick fix. I do believe he was really onto something.. that’s why they killed him in custody. He proved in court that he had cured people of HIV AIDS, blindness, herpes and other illnesses. He brought 77 paitients to court with him to prove this. 
      I’ve also read scientific research stating that oregano oil is very affective at killing the herpes virus.
      the trouble is getting it to the virus in our nerve cells in the ganglion. 
      I understand why pharmaceutical companies would not promote this method of self healing as it does not benefit them. 
      But I am also aware that there are no people in this forum that have been able to sucessfullu rid themselves of the virus. And even if the tests do come back negative and outbreaks stop... the virus could still be in there hiding. 
      But im trying  to save my life. So I am willing to try.
      This is long. And if you’ve made it to the end.. congrats. 
      This may be the last post I make. As if this doesn’t work. I can’t stay on this earth living with the pain of what could have been if I had not been with one person.

      This week my pregnancy ended after an ultrasound showed no heartbeat at 8.5 weeks. I had an outbreak just the week before. Naturally I believe that this caused my miscarriage. Everything was progressing perfectly up until that point. This is now my 5th loss and with every miscarriage I had an outbreak within days before. I can’t help but think that this is the underlying cause of it all. All of my doctors have said that the likelihood of the HSV being connected to my losses is rare. But I have also read mixed things online and feel like the medical community is generally uninformed when it comes to this. 
      Can anyone share their experiences with this? It would really help me to hear any stories of successful pregnancies with outbreaks in the first trimester ... or alternatively stories like mine.

      Approximately 5 years ago a  girl gave me a peck on the lips, I wiped my lips off.
      The next morning I woke up with a painful rash all over my top lip that dried up and resulted in chapped lips, where the skin died and regenerated. No pus or obvious cold sore.
      I have had this same outbreak approximately once a year in the same place except for this year where I have had it almost continuously, I have been very stressed.
      I went to the doctor who says it isn't cold sores (I have to wait 2 weeks for a blood test), however I have found someone ( To those with oral HSV2 only by Penumbra,)  who tested positive for HSV2 by blood test with my EXACT symptoms.
      Before an outbreak, my lip/nose area is tingling a lot and I feel a strong twitching in my lip.
      Is it possible that I have mild cold sores?
      I would greatly appreciate any help

      Hi everyone.
      I never thought I'd see the day that I would be posting in an online forum, let alone for this topic. I also never thought in a million years that I would get this. Im not really sure what to say on here, I just needed to say something. I was recently diagnosed positive for GHSV2... like "4 hours ago" newly diagnosed. I am still just in complete shock. It hasn't settled with me yet that I will be dealing with this for the rest of my life. I already picked up my medication, Valtrex, and it took me a solid 3 minutes to even bring myself to swallow the pill, cause I had this deep sinking feeling, like "once I do this, it's for real... this is actually happening... this is actually my life now.. this isnt some terrible nightmare that Im going to wake up from." Ive already called my "previously ex, but now, somewhat newly re-established, boyfriend" and broke the news to him. He was much more understanding than I had expected and is actually going tonight to get himself tested, so we can decide where to go from there.
      So I had my doctors appointment yesterday with a new gyno who upon immediately examining me came to the conclusion that what I had was herpes. I didnt want to accept it and continuously reassured her that it couldn't be that because I had just gotten tested in June (in another state and at a completely new, one-time visit gyno office) and those results came back NEGATIVE. Or so I had thought... Apparently, my results in June did NOT come back negative, and in fact came back positive for HSV2, yet NO ONE called me to review these results or follow up with a care plan for me. I don't remember much from that time, but considering the fact that I have been living for almost 5 months now, unknowingly with this virus, tells me that IF/WHEN I had spoken to someone at that particular doctors office, than they must have told me that I showed negative for everything, because I went on living my life like I had nothing. Im not sure what the protocol is in different states, but for NC (where I live) the doctor usually calls you and states that "they received your results and then they proceed to read off said results for each test" over the phone. I know for a FACT, that I would have remembered being told that I was positive for ANYTHING back in June.. especially considering I usually get myself tested at least twice a year and take testing very seriously, since I always dreaded the thought of ever catching something. And now.... look where I am left!!! I feel incredibly hurt and angry that this office failed to discuss these results with me! I never received a paper copy of my results, no email, nothing. The only thing I ever received from that visit was a bill from Labcorp stating the amount of money I had left to pay after insurance, and what tests the charges were for. Had I known that I tested positive back in June, I would have NEVER exposed my "ex-but-now-again" boyfriend who I still very much care about and saw a new future with. I will feel incredibly guilty if his results come back positive and come to find out that  I AM the reason for his diagnosis. 
      Im sorry this is so long, I just have so much inside me that I need to let out. Clearly, you can see I am incredibly angry at this. I feel immensely isolated. I feel dirty. I feel like no one will ever love me again. I feel like even if I find a new partner, how can someone willingly choose to be with a person who has herpes, when they are not infected themselves? Why would they subject themselves to that exposure when there are plenty of other people they can be with who aren't exposed? I have always had a poor self image, I'm incredibly self-conscious. I consistently, on a daily basis struggle with self esteem issues and self-worth... and now, to have this psychological trauma and burden to add on top of all of that?! I don't know how to live with myself and I feel like my world is falling apart and I would be better off dead, than have to deal with a lifetime of loneliness and misery that comes from this psychological pain I am going through. 
      I know I keep reading that "this isn't the end of the world", and "things will get better", etc etc. but being as this is DAY ONE for me.... and I feel like this... I can't imagine having to feel this way EVERY DAY, for who knows how long... until I just feel completely numb from it. I guess when that day finally comes, it'll also be the day that I start getting over it and dealing with this. But from this point A until that point B... the thought of that time in between just feels like so MUCH to deal with. So much pain, and hurt, and sorrow, that I just don't want to feel. not right now, not for a few months, not ever.
      I can't be the only one who has felt this way. I am trying to be positive and divert my energy into researching this illness and finding support groups and forums like this, but I just need to know that I am not alone in this. I know for right now, that in my physical, every day life, the relationships/friendships I deal with in-person on a daily basis, I will be alone for the time being... but I really just need to know that I can, at least, find some support online... from others who understand me or have felt similar to what I am feeling right now.

      I had 4 blood tests for IGG so far. They went from negative (0.50) to POSITIVE (without value) but the fourth test I took said 0.9 (who is the minimun of the warning area), I also got a 1 (my maximum besides the "positive" one without numbers). (For the records I do had positive 1.3 IGM with the first one).
      Didn't have another ob like the initial one in 10 months (it was glans full of little pimples). I do have different symptoms however: now my glans skin seems different, feels more sensitive and get random quick tingling feel (very rare in a  week). Also I can see like sort of microscopic goosebumps on glans that don't remember ever had. They sometimes are more noticeable.
      There are many of you with more consistent outbreaks but low IGG numbers like 0.9/1.1?
      Thanks.

      But you were probably also exposed to HSV-1,2,3,4,5,6ab,7,8. There are also about 80 other human viruses and you would have been exposed to a dozen of those. There are tens of different bacteria that also transmit during sexual activity. There are also hundreds of possible  causes generated with your body.  
    • RainyDay2
      The sad part is I was exposed to HSV 2 so judging by what information Im told, If I had herpes mine would almost definitely show up on an IGG test by now.  Supposedly I’d have less than an 8% chance of it not showing up on a blood test. All I can do is go off the information Im given.   My thing is this: I need to know what is causing this.  If the medical world wants to tell me that I dont have herpes, fine.  What is it that I have then? And how do I get rid of it? Otherwise, being negative for herpes means nothing to me.  Because Im still positive for something, and they cant even figure out what the hell it is! Because my body definitely changed after I was exposed to it.  
    • WilsoInAus
      That’s incorrect for recent infections where it nears 100%. Those people have a positive swab.
    • WilsoInAus
      Herpes is not some default magic rabbit that comes out of the hat and makes sense out of the irrational.
    • MikeIke
      @RainyDay2 i am about to pull out the big bht guns. Hey if i can get rid of the symptoms forever and never blow positive, ill take it. My other thought was hpv but i know i was exposed. The last clinician i saw definitely thought my lip things looked herpetic and sajd she's seen urethral herpes before too.    Igg can be forever negative in some, i have heard hsv1 has less accuracy with igg
