No, that is not how the virus reacts to antiviral medication. The antivirals make the virus unable to replicate itself by suppressing a specific cellular action.  There is no way for it to develop resistance or anything of that nature. The only time such issues have been seen is in end stage AIDS patients - and that has to do with a complete lack of immune system to act in tandem with the medication.

The reason it -seems- like it came back worse is that with only the immune system keeping HSV in check for some people, the OBs will be much worse, and since said person has been used to OBs with meds or no OBs at all yes it seems like OH GOD WHY.

Ways to help your immune system food wise is to find a quality multivitamin (Natures Plus Ultra Source of Life I have had very good results with) and to start eating a more balanced, healthy diet with vegetables, proteins, and the like. Don't have to give up mac n cheese, but it shouldn't be 7 nights a week. Exercise also has been shown to bolster immune response. Some people take probiotics, especially if they tend to have stomach issues.

Regarding exercise, it's important that you don't overdo it. That can run you down and temporarily weaken the immune system. Another important aspect to the immune system is sleep.

Okay update:

I think I may have to cut out the DMSO. I just tried to use the smalllesstttt amount on my spine and it honestly hurts really bad. I probably just have super sensitive skin. The first few days I used it though, wasn't this bad. This stuff is freaky. I'll stick to rubbing OOO on my spine on its own lol

Maybe switching the DMSO to coconut oil. Mixing it with the oregano oil and rubbing it in that way. I've read up a lot on natural cures and while I've only tried some I've noticed a difference in my body. Eating proper is highly important. Keep the body alkaline. Disease cannot live in an alkaline body. Acidic free.

They're very expensive. I want to just focus on stressing out less and eating right to stop my OBs.

The OBs I had in the past were triggered by extreme stress; so I will try to reduce that. I only started taking supplements because I thought I could cure myself but I still got OBs when I was on them if I was very stressed; so I figured they were not making a huge difference.

Now a days I just pray for a functional cure and focus on being healthy. It should be noted that I am also not on any anti-virals. So far, not having many issues. I actually feel kinda normal these days. 

I also took the chicken pox vaccine last month after reading the French study about how it stopped OBs for people...so I'm hoping it also helps reduce mine too. 

I'm gonna try to remain positive, pray, stay healthy and stop stressing. Hopefully my OBs reduce to the point where I forget I have the virus, like many others.

I had my last OB last month after taking VZV and HPV vaccines. I think my immune system just went into overdrive. I didn't have any since then *knock on wood*...but I'll be taking my last dose of VZV this week, so we'll see. 

I started a whole other thread about the chicken pox vaccine too if you guys are interested in reading about that.

Just thought I'd update since I haven't in a while..

Last OB was mid December after getting chicken pox vaccine and HPV vaccine on the same day.

Since then, I haven't had anything so far --knock on wood. I took my last vaccine for VZV last week and everything was fine. A few days after the vaccine, I thought  I was getting an OB because I saw a tiny pimple/sore but it cleared up overnight :/...not sure if it was a blister after all. Even if it was, I think my body has adjusted to the virus pretty well.. I don't take antivirals or supplements at all anymore, I never exercise, I drink, and I don't watch what I eat. Not sure if the chicken pox vaccine is helping or it's just my body. I'll keep you all posted.

Ps- I get alot of vaginal irritation that the doctor swabbed and said is yeast. It comes and goes, depending on stress. I've started to take probiotics to help with the problem. I suspect it's stress or hormone related. It could be herpes related but I doubt it because there are absolutely no signs of an OB when this occurs.

I am with you sis. I will heal myself. the body is divine. give it the proper environment (nourishment) and it will heal itself.

Hey guys..I'll do a quick update.

I read up alot and spoke to my doctor before deciding to go on valtrex.

ALOT of the issues I posted about were due to a severe yeast infection that was not curable with over the counter meds. I went to see a doc, did a pap, did blood and after everything came back normal except the yeast. At this point, I was prescribed a 3 dose yeast infection treatment. This finally got rid of the yeast infection symptoms I was having, that I blamed on HSV.

I am now on valtrex as @Taintedgirl has mentioned, for suppressive therapy BUT I only take 500mg every other day. This is half the recommended dose. I don't want to jinx it, but it has worked so well for me. I drink pretty much every weekend (sometimes heavily lol), work in a high stress profession (writing my bar exam very soon & just finished law school), and I do not watch what I eat at all. I also eat alot of almonds as well (for other health purposes). Even with these triggers I haven't had an OB since February and no itching/abnormal discharge since I cured my yeast. All is well, thankfully.

I STILL however, do believe that there is a way to cure ourselves naturally. Whether it be through supplements or doing whatever it is necessary to stop OBs. I know everyone's body is different but I read up on so many people who eventually stopped having OBs (either with the help of antivirals or naturally) and went to get bloodwork done, and came up negative. I asked my doc about this and he said theoretically it is possible, if you have the virus level so low in your body that there is no antibody activity. He said in cases like this, it would be very unlikely to spread even without condoms. Which made sense to me because if your levels are so low that even blood work can't detect it, then you probably don't have enough of the virus to spread it. He did say however, that it would always be in my DNA since it's a DNA virus...which sucks, but that's most of the population.

I chose to listen to him because it made sense to me, but please take his opinion with a grain of salt. 

Anyways, this is what keeps me going...the hope that with the help of less stress and antivirals, I'll never have another OB. I also pray alot because I believe in God and believe that he can create miracles. So yes I am still "determined to cure" but in a different way now. 

Also please note - although I am doing much better these days, I still have minor painless twitching in my legs which I know is a symptom on HSV

Finally - I still take a single 750 mg pill of olive leaf extract everyday ...once I run out of this bottle though, I'm not sure if I will continue because they are quite pricy.

Maybe that's what's going on with me and my wife. She had a yeast infection and could have possibly gave it to me. I have a lot of irritation down there inside and out. I dont know what is going on. Just want it to go away. I'm glad you are doing much better.

Not necessarily. Twitching often occurs when one is stressed. Don't assume this has anything to do with HSV

 BeautyLover,  thank you for your timely note. I have been struggling and debating for years about beginning Valtrex.   I am in my mid 60s, and have lived with this for nearly 30 years . Out of nowhere-I have had a small occurrence  this week, it’s amazing how it can still throw me into a tailspin-I can’t really think of a good reason not to take the medication.  I try and take as few prescriptions as possible, only taking a low dose BP script currently.    Hopefully in the immediate future we will  hear something positive from one of the pharmaceuticals working on development of therapies. Again, thank you for your note – I needed it today. Henry

Good luck Henry!!!! when was your last OB before this one? do you get them often?? anyways, while AVs worked for me, I do still hope we hear something in terms of a cure in our lifetime as well. It would be really nice

      Hey there. Best thing to do is to go in and specifically ask for a herpes IgG blood test and a swab if you have any active sores / bumps present. That's the only way to know for certain. Your symptoms do not sound like the typical symptoms one would experience, but, each person experiences this virus differently. Best to get checked before assuming the worst. Best of luck to you! 
    • asian_gg
      Good question. I want to know the answer too. I apply Abreva to the infected area preventively and take multivitamin to boots up immunity. I am not sure how effective my method is but it is better than doing nothing I guess.

      My assumption and ignorance of herpes was oozing puss filled blistering sores, pain and sickness. You get it by sleeping with whores and sketchy people. Boy was I wrong. I know this is long but hopefully some of you can relate. A week ago I woke up to small painless blisters on my penis out of nowhere. Never happened before. No pre-itching, no pre-tingling, no redness, no sick feelings, no pain, no discharge. I hadn’t slept with anyone in over a month, so wtf. The next morning they were gone, with cuts/sores left behind. They didn’t itch or hurt, only as much as a cut would. I left them alone. I went to a doctor and showed him a photo of the blisters (because they were already gone), he said looks like herpes. How could it be? No woman I’ve ever slept with in the past two years has mentioned it before, during or after me. I didn’t have one night stands. I had regular friends with benefits who could tell me. The doctor did a swab. I asked for a blood test and he said there’s no point. He was certain, so I went to another doctor. He looked at the photos and said it doesn’t look like herpes. I was confused. I asked for a blood test. He was hesitant, but I got an IGG. Now in the past couple years I have had some cuts between my buttcheeks. I always chalked it up to yeast or not wiping enough or too much. It always came out of nowhere, no sickness, no brutal pain, no ooozing puss filled blisters. I never went to a doctor about it. It was uncomfortable, but eventually went away after a week or two. I had assumed genital herpes meant penis, and I wasn’t having anal sex. On this very forum when I was doing research waiting for results, someone said I was being ridiculous thinking I have herpes with non-symptoms like these. Well, today I went in for my swab results. I’m still waiting for the IGG test, but the herpes culture came back positive for HSV2 isolated. The doctor is certain the IGG will come back positive. I’m not really sure how to deal with all this. Right now I feel like a leper, like damaged goods, but also if I’ve had this for years and had no idea until now, I also feel like it’s no big deal. Not a single person in the past two years has got it from me to my knowledge or were incredibly lucky to get a version that shows no symptoms. My concern is explaining that to people going forward who have my prior assumptions, and will not want me. One doctor told me I should for legal reasons go back a year and tell everyone I’ve been with. Another doctor said that’s not realistic. I didn’t have a major episode where I can pinpoint infection, so how far back should I go? I don’t have contact info for many of these people now. I’m not sure what to do. I have so much more to say. I look forward to talking to you all, and am happy this forum exists. Thanks for listening.
