Please Read These Powerful Stories of People with Herpes

Recommended Posts


Hello all. I wanted to share some stories with everyone here so that everyone understands they are not alone in this. I made a petition recently to raise awareness about herpes. It's steadily gaining a lot of support on social media. The MOST powerful thing is reading the stories of people who have been diagnosed. It is heartbreaking to read, but it's also the experience everyone needs to see. People need to understand that the STIGMA is the WORST part of this disease.

If you decide you want to sign the petition (AFTER reading it over), please know that 


Please know that you do not need to sign the petition with your real name or e-mail address. Please protect your privacy. Your name is NOT what we need. It is your support that matters. If you do decide to use your real name and e-mail address, please note that if you comment (your name and location will be revealed). If you sign but do not comment, neither the petition creator nor anyone else who signs the petition can see it. However, the petition is on change.org. Please know what you are comfortable with. I wish people wouldn’t cast judgement for supporting a good cause, but that’s the aim of this petition. We aim to change how this condition is perceived. You can absolutely lend your support using a different name and different e-mail address. There is no need or obligation to reveal your true identity. If you have already signed and commented, please feel free to remove it and sign in with your alternate name. Please hang onto your new e-mail for when we post updates! Your help is essential!


Here are the stories of people with herpes. Here is what they are asking for. Let's help them. Let's help ourselves.

      LMAO You are pathetic, and a racist and obsessed with "winning" and I don't care about your little baby brain. Ohhh "muh thread trophies" ohhh "muh thread arguments" .... "Oooh muh SQUIRT of dopamine" I would bet money your screen-tapping addicted ass you'll keep replying till you "win" because that's what basement dwellers do. Is that why you keep going? Must feel nice that little rush of adrenaline? The dopamine spike every time you hear the bell? You're like a Pavlovian dog. Oh sorry that might be out of your range of intelligence since you display the iq of mayonnaise. Why don't you call you mommy to bring you the chicken tenders you need to keep going, since you've made it your mission to be the worst you can be. And seeing as you'll never get up from your seat you can have the whole thread to your self, you self obsessed troglodyte

      Hey guys,  It's been a while. Most of you have read about my non-stop outbreaks that I've been unable to get rid of. After I saw some news about activated charcoal / acyclovir working against herpes on the news I got interested, and started making some experiments at home. They seemed to work and I'm amazed, however it seems too good to be true, so I'm also doubtful if these are what really caused improvements. I'll let you guys discuss, maybe some with more qualified scientific/medical opinions.  FYI I have tested positive for HSV-2 twice via blood test and once by swab. Someone commented a while ago about my unusual non-response to antivirals, so I decided to stop them completely. Bad mistake! I got the worst outbreak of the year. On top of the continuous little blisters on my penis, I got a big one on my buttock and my groin lymph node swell into the size of a pea that I could see moving under the skin. Painful and terrible! So it seems that I do somewhat react to antivirals, but my body doesn't identify the constant mild outbreak as sufficient to trigger an immune response.  Here are some photos of the OB I got after quitting ACV: https://ibb.co/Xxvb5z7 https://ibb.co/W0Msxx2 https://ibb.co/LNKjxwS https://ibb.co/mG7zsRJ Anyways lets get to the point:  Topical treatment experiments for HSV 2: Test 1: For my first test I mixed one 800mg tablet of Acyclovir, 3000mg of Monolaurin with Bepanthen Salve cream. I melted it into a paste in a glass surrounded by hot water. I applied this to my penis that had a current outbreak and left it there overnight. The next morning, the skin on my penis was very sensitive and red. During the next days, the blisters disappeared but the skin looked a little rough. After maybe 2 days, the skin started shedding off like a snake shedding it's skin (wtf?). Anyways, the blisters had gone and I saw some improvement with the flu-like feeling / lethargy disappearing. Maybe 4-5 days later the OB came back.  I tried this again and the exact same thing happened. Anyways, the skin shedding looked like a yeast infection, so I stopped it after a while.  Test 2: For the second try, I mixed a 800mg tablet of Acyclovir, 3000mg of Monolaurin, 5 grams of Activated Charcoal with Bepanthen Wound Healing Cream (more liquid). I melted it again with hot water and this time it turned into a smooth black cream. I've been applying this on my penis when the outbreak appears and it seems to get rid of it. It seems I only get the skin shedding issue if I use it too much/too often/too long at a time. Really odd.. I also started getting an outbreak around my anus, so I've applied it there too with success.  I stopped this for a week to see if my OB came back and it did, along with lethargy and flu-like feeling. Applied the cream again and it's gone. Can this be real?  During the past 4 weeks I've started feeling signicantly better, doing outdoor activities, training hard, working hard and feeling normal. I'm amazed. Whatever has caused this improvement, I'm not sure, but whatever it is I'm so happy about it.  Now let's get to the scienfific talk. I'm very sceptical and I don't even believe this could work since I see no response to oral Acyclovir, Valacyclovir, Famcyclovir or Amenalief. Below I have listed my own theories that could explain this. Take these with a gain of salt, as they are just my own broscientific assumptions.  It's all a coinsidence: this is the first thing that comes to mind, but I can't find any other explanation. I haven't really changed anything. I started eating 6000mg of Monolaurin 1 month ago, but didn't see any improvements from that. I started working out in the mornings instead of the evenings. I changed my Testosterone medication from Enanthate to Cypionate. Maybe my body just decided it's enough?  Monolaurin is killing the viruses: Monolaurin has been shown to kill viruses in a petri-dish, but not proven to work orally. If it absobs through the skin and gets in touch with the virus directly, could it work?  Acyclovir works better topically: Could it be that for some reason my body is not making enough of acyclovir bioavailable after processing it through the digestive system, and works better through the skin? hard to believe, since it's well known oral antivirals work better for genital herpes. I caused myself an infection:  Could it be that using these substances to irritate my skin, I caused an infection (yeast infection?) and as a result, my immune system got triggered and got rid of the Herpes as a result?  My symptoms are not caused by Herpes: What if I have Herpes but the symptoms on my penis and anus are caused by something completely different, that is successfully treated by these topicals? I have been to various doctors and hospitals who've never confirmed any other conditions, but lets not rule this option out.  Anyways, let me know what you guys think. I have no idea how this is possible and don't even believe in this myself after all the time I've spent trying different cures for my symptoms. I just can't find any other viable reason what could explain my improved condition. I will keep doing this and let you guys know if the correlation remains between the OBs and using this cream.
