In my twenties herpes was one thing you never ever wanted to get ,because your sex life/dating life was done supposable so there was all kinds of research ,then HIV/AIDS came along and knocked herpes research out of the fore front   and it does not seem like it been that big for researchers since the early days,so how much are researchers still looking for a CURE.I am now 54 and there is still nothing.

Things are a lot better now then when you were in your twenties. They now know a lot more about the virus, have better tools to combat it.  An interest in curing it has also grown. Currently, Excision Biotherapeutics is a company that appears to be on the forefront of at least a functional cure, if not perhaps a sterilizing cure, which is their ultimate goal. We may know the results of their current approach in the next five years. You can visit their website and check out their pipeline for their current research.

If you expect more than what is currently being offered; In other words, if your expectations are unrealistic, you'll get frustrated and disappointed. No research lab/company promises anything. They have an approach and they do trials to see if it works. And that takes time and money.

I hear what you are saying and hope that company comes through with something.. They have had plenty of time since the 80s and things did not cost as much. I knew a woman who was part of a study way back in 85.

      Hey hi202020, the Varivax vaccine definitely removed the neuralgia for me, at least so far (fingers crossed). My signs of HSV1 infection after the blood test came back positive in December (with a high IGG of over 55) were: horrible flu symptoms initially (in February) with swollen lymph nodes, followed by almost non-stop, super painful genital neuralgia, and one oral outbreak in March. However, the neuralgia has completely disappeared since the end of April (about a month or so). I had the first vaccine on April 10 and the booster shot on May 19, so about a week ago.

      Hey Mackie I have the same neuralgia that you do, did you find anything that helped you? Did you try any vaccines? I’m feeling desperate as I’ve had non stop neuralgia/pain for 4+ months after contracting GHSV-1.

      Got my igG results after 13 months and it is negative I think I need to put this behind and may be rhink do some shitty infection that is causing this itching in genitals and on face. Just an FYI my Western blot at 7 months post exposure is negative.

      Exactly. Plus some people don't seroconvert ever or for a long time, so it's even larger than that.  Also, it takes longer for hsv. To show up on wb than on a commercial igg test.

      Even Terri says that sensitivity of WB for hsv1 is 95-96%. So somebody has to be in this 4-5%...
