My herpes has stopped

Recommended Posts

cac377

When I was first diagnosed with herpes in December... I read this forum a lot. It just seemed that people were coping with the virus instead of trying to stop it. I want to cure this virus, not cope with it... and I may have finally stopped it. 

 

5 months ago:

Here is my original post of what I was taking to stop the virus - 

Back then... my virus was off the hinges. I had it really bad. I was breaking out on thighs, on my penis, on my hips, buttocks, lower back, lower abs... it was that bad. I was itching vigorously, skin peeling, blisters everywhere. It wouldn't stop. 

 

I totally forgot if I added this to the list, but I also started taking MMS. Every time I did ozone or MMS or Ozone... my breakouts would increase dramatically. 

 

3 months ago:

Then... a few months ago... something amazing happened. It all stopped. In a couple of days, all my scabs healed, all my blisters went away and the scarring began healing as well. I was so happy that I rushed to the clinic and got an std test. It still came back positive for herpes... but I scored a 2.2. 

 

After looking at that score, I dropped all the things I was taking. I just went strictly on a vitamin c diet, I would take ascorbyl vitamin c and lyposheric vitamin c. I also started taking zinc daily and would use 30% food grade hydrogen peroxide while I was showering. I was deep into the vitamin c... I can't tell you how many grams of vitamin c I was doing... but I remember having to go to the store every 3 days to get more. I did this for a few months. At this time as well, I was up to 8 ozone therapy sessions. Oh... and I was taking pau d arco and beta glucan as well. So... during this period... vitamin c, pau d arco, beta glucan, zinc, ozone therapy and hydrogen peroxide

 

Today:

About a month and a half ago... I dropped everything. I haven't been doing anything to stop the virus. I even stopped doing ozone therapy. Although, I scheduled an appointment for next month for maintanance. However... I've been doing evening I can to get a breakout. A while ago... when I used to eat chocolate, it caused a breakout. Not anymore. When I used to rub hand sanitizer on the affected areas, I used to get a breakout. Not anymore. When I used to drink a lot of alcohol, I used to get a breakout. Not anymore. When I used to rub certain creams in the area, I used to get a breakout. Not anymore. 

 

I have been outbreak free for a while now. After I do my next ozone therapy session, in going to get tested again and see what's happening. Even though it seems the virus is gone, I'm still worried about passing the virus through shedding. 

 

The only thing I noticed is that I itch from time to time. However... I don't know if it's from the virus or just general itching. I've always been itchy though. Unrelated to the virus... sometimes my head itches, my face itches, my shoulder itches, my leg itches, my butt itches... but it's just regular itching. We all get itchy sometimes. Sometimes I do get itchy down there... but only if I'm really thinking about it... so sometimes I wonder if it's just me being inside my head... you know?

 

I know you will all read this and tell me that I'm not cured or that herpes lessens over time and that nothing I did actually helped and that time healed some of this... but I like to think that the effort I put into stopping the virus got me to where I'm at today. 

The only real thing I do now is go to the gym and drink tons of water. I've been going to the gym way before I got herpes. I go everyday and I use the sauna everyday too... 

 

ok... I'm done. Lol

Good morning!! I guess I'm not as informed as I thought I was about hsv 2. Can you tell me what ozone is. When I went to the doctor they just said I had it, not that I had a level or anything like that.  I don't really do anything to cause it, but I swear to goodness that if I think about it, the next day I'll have an outbreak. Every single time!  I'll go months and months without anything, then have outbreaks right after the other has healed. Anyway! I'm so happy for you and I think I need to try that!

When you go to your regular doctor, they will give you one of those 3 antiviral medications, which I have never taken.

I've been doing research on herpes... really deep research, and I found ozone therapy.

this isn't something a regular doctor will mention or give to you. You will have to find a natural remedy doctor to give this to you. 

 

They basically draw a bag of blood from your arm... put it into a bag and then infuse your blood with ozone and then place all of it back into your body. 

 

Most diseases cannot survive in an ozonated environment... especially herpes. This isn't a low cost treatment tho. It costs 300 per session for me.

Oh wow! I can't afford that at all. They have me valtrex and that's all. It's just frustrating because anytime I think about it it pops up!

That's why I didn't want to do these antiviral meds. I've heard stories of people going on antivirals and it didn't help much. Besides... antivirals can cause health issues over time. 

 

That is why I chose the natural route. I don't get outbreaks anymore. I still itch from time to time.. but again... I'm. It sure if it's herpes itching or just a regular itch. 

 

After I get my next ozone therapy session done, I'll go and test again.

My advice is to read up in vitamin c (ascorbyl and lyposoheric) and also try 30% hydrogen peroxide. 

I wouid say you should try MMS also... but MMS isn't for the faint of heart. It tastes nasty and it will have you vomiting. I took it everyday for a month. I still have a lot left, but I'm not in the mood to try it again.

 

like I said though... people are trying to cope with it. I don't want to cope. I want to destroy it.

Thanks cac. I am undertaking a very similar approach. I may incorporate Monolaurin as well since there seems to be decent research on it, and it's natural so can't harm. 

Anyway, can you explain how you used the H202? Was it after your shower; spraying your hips, genital area etc..?? Did you dilute with distilled water? I had success doing that a while ago, but stopped because I thought I had knocked H into remission. Thanks!!

H202 Usage:

There's a couple of ways to use it. I got a spray bottle and placed water in it. Then I put less than 1/4 of a bottle of H202 into the spray bottle and mixed it around. 

When I took my shower, I would wash myself up as usual... however... before I got out, I would spray the entire bottle of the water/hydrogen peroxide mixture on my privates, thighs, hips, butt, lower back. 

Alternatively, I would sometimes just take a shower, get dried off and then spray the mixture on the areas I mentioned above. 

When I used the H202, I would actually notice the herpes showing up on my areas as I was spraying. After I got done spraying, they would immediately dissapear. It wasn't itchy or anything... it would just show up during the spraying. After a while, it stopped showing up.

i also forgot to mention... but I tried monolaurin as well. I tried a type of monolaurin called laracindin (pardon my spelling... I'm at work)... and that seemed to help as well.

The big reason why I stopped taking everything is because I wasn't seeing any more breakouts/symptoms and I stopped seeing results after a while.. which is why I think my herpes may be gone (or it's in a verryyy deep sleep).

When I get off of work... I'll post some links and resources for herpes. I also have a master list of where you can find natural remedy doctors in the USA... and where you can receive ozone therapy

Awesome, really helpful. Have had similar experience with H2O2, this time, and with other supplements, I will follow for longer and more regularly. Thanks.

What is really important here to understand is that every body's immune system is different and everyone has different genetics there for what might work for one might not work for another.   For those who have HSV 1 genital it is unlikely that you're going to get a lot of outbreaks at any rate and other people over time yes they should decrease but it is about looking after your health and wellbeing and if you're doing everything right but you're still getting a lot of outbreaks then yes try something else

Have you tried to change your medication at all.  How long have you actually had the virus for.  That must be very annoying for you I hope it does improve

UPDATE:

-Still outbreak free. 

-I basically have my old diet back. My old diet wasn't bad... but it included a lot of junk food, chocolate, candy, chips, etc. I still eat fruits and vegetables. Still remain outbreak free.

-I feel itchy everyday - again... not sure if it's herpes or not. I itch all over my body (including my genital area)... so I am not sure if this is restricted to just herpes. 

-I got my final ozone therapy session done on Saturday. When I first started doing ozone, every time I would get done with the process, I used to breakout pretty bad immediately after. This is my first time doing ozone therapy in 2 months. After I finished the process, didn't breakout and didn't feel any symptoms.

-I am talking to Westover Heights and making plans to get the Western Blot test.

Question:

I have read that when the immune system is down, the herpes virus strikes and starts producing outbreaks. I've actually been really sick these past couple of days with throwing up, night sweats, diarrhea, headaches and major stress from work, but I haven't experienced any herpes symptoms at all. Does herpes ALWAYS occur during sickness and stress?

Update:

I am trashed right now. Not going to lie. Lol. I am doing an alcohol experiment to see if it will trigger my herpes. Last time I had alcohol (which was during the time of my first diagnosis), I broke out. I went to the store and purchased a 4 Loko. I am hoping to lower my immune system a bit, and I am also eating some chocolate and wheat right now. Seeing if it will give me an outbreak. So far... nothing! 

On that note... I have ordered the Western Blot. It will arrive at my house in 3-5 business days. From there, I will go to an Any Lab Test Now, have them spin my blood and I will get it shipped to the U of Wash for further testing. Then, I will get my results in 1-3 weeks.

Remember though that for most people it isn't alcohol itself that contributes to an outbreak (it isn't known to) but the stressful reasons why we might on occasion drink to excess that is the more likely culprit.

hi - cac - any updates ? 

I just found this thread. I've been posting for a while (you can find some of my posts). I contracted HSV in Dec 16. My first outbreak was painful - but I didn't know what was going on for about 10 days. I went to urgent care, and they didn't originally give me any meds, or swab me, and they said I wasn't in the window to get blood (too early) or swab (too late) tested. 

So, I reliably had an outbreak every 10 weeks (give or take a week) which were decreasing in severity, and by then I had valtrex to take as soon as I felt the tingling. That went on all through 2017. Then early in 2018 I started taking Neem tablets and using the oil. I didn't get another outbreak. I stopped using the neem about 8 or 9 months ago but still haven't had an outbreak in about a year.

I still don't know if I had HSV1 or 2. Question - how do you do the WB test at home ? I've never been tested and figure I have to do it sometime. What are my options ?

Also, I tell this story because I remember my first year, and it sucked. I wanted to crawl up and die. But things are much better and even though early last year I was convinced it was due to neem, I'm not sure now. All I know is that lots of people are doing different things to treat themselves and I say - whatever works, keep doing it. At the very least, it might ease your stress levels.

thanks to all 

RSL

      It's been five months since possible exposure and keep having symptoms. I keep experiencing thigh and pelvic pain and thick discharge. Also get shooting pains vaginally and on my butt. I just saw a small white bump inside my labia and next to it is a small open sore. They don't hurt when touched but the rest of my vagina hurts when touched or sitting. Does any of this sound like anyone's ob? I got tested in October but I'm scared I tested too early and now having trouble getting a doctor to retest me

      Hello everyone,
      I tested positive for HSV 1 & 2 yesterday. In these short 24 hours my emotion's have been on a roller coaster.  Sometimes I feel like I am normal and I can get over this mentally but then sometimes I break down and cry and feel so nasty about myself and the decisions I've made in life. Anyways I'm not writing on here to throw myself a pitty party but instead to find out what you guys prefer. Do you take medicine if so do you take it daily or just when you have outbreaks? Do you do the natural way and if so what are your recipes? What do you think are the pros and cons to either. I just really don't want to take a pill everyday to remind me of my choices. Any feedback is appreciated.

      My nightmare started more than 2 months ago, pretty normal life but after an encounter (oral no protection), girl told my she was clean (been dating for a while now) she had one long relationship before me.  I started to feel almost 2 days later irritation in my glans and meatus. Consulted with a doctor and he prescribed Azytromicin/ceftriaxone/ metronidazole, thinking it was a urethritis. 
      3 days after treatment felt muscle pain in the inside of my groin and light right testicular pain while sitting (had a similar feeling 6 months ago and an ultrasound was made revealing a small varicocele).  Small itchy rash in my lower right back it disappeared in couple of hours. 
      In the morning my urethra looked mildly red and irritated. 
      I started to apply cicaplast baume around the area, but only more irritation was felt. 
      4 days:  new symptoms, light icy sensation after washing my testicles and glans. 
      7 Days in: I had an erection and I felt my glans was being cut or something, very painful, felt very irritated and it was very red, never looked this way before.  Could not see any pimple, vesicle or cut, just rednes and irritation mostly around urethra, glans looked very tight, scaly.   (Picture 1)
      When it was small again it looked super wrinkled.  
      10 days consulted a dermatologist: told me it looked pretty normal gave a soothing cream and fluconazol 1 dose, hydrocortisone 1% for 7 days (mild? To no improvement). 
      Tests:
      Urethra swab:  ocasional: polymorphonuclears, gram positive coccus and yeast. 
      HSV 1 and HSV 2 test made 10 days post:  HSV1 IGG and HSV2 IGG: 164 and 145 UI/ml   (value cut 90 and 110) 
      HSV1 And 2 IGM: negative 
      15 days: no improvement saw an urologist gave me Acexamic Acid for 5 days
      Saw a small withe lesion, irritated inside of urethra, did not sting , no pain while urinating, no secretion. Disappeared within a day or 2.  (Picture 2)
      30 days: saw an infectiologist doctor: told me that did not looked like Herpes, he saw the lab test (random laboratory not that prestigious) and told me that crossed reaction is common, HSV1 orally, but that test was no conclusive (low titles).  (Picture 3)
      Urine test (PCR test) for STD (it includes chlamydia, gonorrea, ureoplasma, mycoplasma, thricomona).  All negative. 
      35 days: started noticing a stinging pain in matus and it irradiated thru the inside and started to have mild stings near suprapubic área, mostly in the first hours of the morning. 
       Another swab: Staph aureus positve. Started cefadroxil 500mg twice daily
      HIV INSTI (-) (5 and a half weeks)
      No improvements, and I am feeling hopeless, stinging persist mostly while sitting, redness still there around meatus and glans , scaly glans and redness during erection. 
      False sense of wetness near pubic area (like if someone randomly dropped a drop of water but no real wetness or secretion seen upon checking in the moment) 
       In my country there is no PCR swab, western blot or virus culture. 
      I can not sleep… , I don’t feel normal, pretty depressed over this… I can’t concentrate on anything, past girlfriends did have oral Herpes, never used condoms for oral just vaginal… did not know about HSV… 
       Could it be gHSV1? Or gHSV2? I cannot recall when I had a sores in my mouth, they were very mild and have not had one in years. Where they sores? 
      Please help !!!  
      Last picture is the way it looks when it is small. 
      Sorry for my english, kind of rusty.

      So I have been getting pimples on my penis, 2 are chronic and do not move and react like a black head when squeezed, thin wormy thread of pus. Once in a while I will get a larger one midway up my shaft that can be more like a deep pimple under the skin that can pop. Happens about 3-4x a year. This does not hurt or crust over. The other day when cleaning my penis I noticed a rough patch under my forskin and found this small open wound. It alarmed me so I went to urgent care. After saying what I said above the practitioner said “that’s herpes” before seeing my penis. I later went to the VA urgent care for a second opinion and she said it’s not. I have been married 10 years with a break 3 years ago. Here are two angles of the same dot, do any of you have any thoughts on my experience? Syphilus  test came back negative.

      If your eye was affected by HSV you'd be in intense pain and you'd be in the hospital on an antiviral drip.  It is likely a coincidence of timing, and something that you shouldn't overthink.  Definitely worth getting checked anyway since the eye is a sensitive area.

      Hey all. I had an STD check while pregnant with my now 3 yo and it was perfectly clean, hadn’t had another one until a few months ago   I was sexually assulted about 4 months ago. Because of that I asked for all STD testing. My first HSV 2 IGG score came back at 4.00, I requested another 2 weeks later and it’s now a 3.22 IGG. Should I take this as for sure positive or would it warrant a WB at all? Is it normal for numbers to go down like that?   Ive had NO symptoms whatsoever, at any time     Also, condoms, guys what are the best ones that feel as natural as possible?? Any ideas?
