Valtrex

I was diagnosed about 2 years ago and never really had a bad OB bit always little pimples and sometimes burning. It never goes away and I always aware I don’t feel normal. Has anyone ever switched drugs from Valtrex and noticed a difference with something else?

How was the diagnosis made? Did you have a swab of the pimples you describe or another type of lesion. Maybe you had a blood test?

They just swapped a cut that was inside to detect. Never took a culture of the pimples because didn’t have at the time. I just can never really tell when I am having an OB and the pimple seems to get red then almost go away but never a blister.. I just want to find an antiviral that clears me up, so was thinking maybe Valtrex didn’t work for me

I think you may need to consider that these pimples may not be related to your herpes infection. The fact that Valtrex seems ineffective in this regard at least lends a little further weight in that direction. Might be best to consult your doctor when you have a set of these pimples maybe for a swab and examination in case another cause is at play.

      Who said it was hard to believe? It's possible that it causes some Alzheimer's but its also possible that herpes merely takes advantage of a brain weakened by Alzheimer's rather than being the causative agent. This theory is a well-documented by experts. The fact is that they have no proof either way. Links do not prove anything and are often proven incorrect as causative agents. To further complicate things, they fully expect that Alzheimer's may have several causes. Therefore, the best way to handle it at the moment may be to reverse the damage with a cure which would likely work for all causes or at least most. It may be easier to fix for now and then prevent later as they learn more about the various causes. They may be on the brink of that now.

      I have to agree. Only American companies are under the jurisdiction of the FDA but why do they extend their influence over all treatments and medicines globally cos they are corrupt yeah. Makes sense

      Dear Mike, I have access to academic resources. If you would like to have a look at the original report, you can tell me your email. Note that it's only for personal use of HSV cure research survey.

      In my opinion the FDA are the biggest scammers out there. From my side as a mother who had to see my Daughter be infected because of the terrible misrepresentation of Pharmaceutical medications (Valtrex) I think that the FDA has a lot to answer for.  They take their funding and bonus's to approve dangerous medications which have later turned out to be deadly.  They approve and endorse sugar with no limitation or regulation although it's the biggest cause of heart disease, diabetes and obesity.  All because they are part of the bigger business scams out there to keep the population dependent on antivirals for life.  I know I would much rather a natural solution for my Daughter than the toxic medications the FDA endorse.
