Herpotherm / Bite-away Cobra completely ineffective against GH

Recommended Posts

I'm trying the mentioned tools - they are technically the same and work by heating skin area to up to 60 degrees - since a few weeks already against genital herpes. This time i'm sure that I used them already when the blisters were still very tiny. Also I wasn't on any suppressie therapy, so there is no possible interference. Blisters have fully developed, bursted and turned into open ulcers which never happens on acyclovir pills. So I can conclude that this treatment is completely ineffictive and not recommendable.

I don't get prodromal symptoms at all though, so I cannot really judge on using it in that stage. I don't feel tingling or erythema before the tiny blisters appear. They just come. Maybe the virus was never sufficiently recognized by my immune system? I never had flu like symptoms either, not even during the first OB.

      I notice in the morning several white bumps and inflammation. An 1h or 2 after and the usual burning sensation, stomach cramps, and vaginal discharge. I took a second dose of valacyclovir during lunch (i take it daily before going to bed but dose up to twice a day if i have an ob) and tonight the symptoms are already gone. No more white bumps, maybe some tiny open sores that i cant really see and some inflammation. How the hell is this possible? Can my herpes ob heal that fast? Does it happen to anybody else? I read they usually last 2 to 3 days.

      I had unprotected sex about 3 days ago and I got a single bump that has no fluid, but has a yellow tint to it when I shine a flashlight on it. I shaved recently before the unprotected sex and had some irritation prior. Is this yellow coloration associated with herpes? Please let me know if you guys think this is herpes? Thanks

      Are you sure it's not related to diet and subsequent weight gain since you got hsv?

      I mentioned in a post that I have a burning sensation on my mouth. Dermatologist keeps trying to say it's Fordyce spot, but cannot give me a solid explanation as to why my lips burns and how my girlfriend developed the exact same symptoms.  I find it unlikely that two people both have flu-like symptoms, tingling on the lips, and they both got it at the same time.
