Has anyone tried the SHINGRIX Vaccine?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried the Shingrix vaccine and noticed any decreased frequency of HSV2 symptoms? Please only reply if you have tried the vaccine. No arguments.  I have read other posts and don't want this one to turn into a joke.

I received shingrix vaccination for $163. on March 10 2018.

sore arm for 3 days.

so far, noticed no effect on hsv2.

been told optimum benefit is to wait 4 months for the 2nd shot ,

so in june I'll receive & pay another $163.

No effect on hsv2 sounds better than the adverse effect folks have documented online from the older vacccine. But yes, please keep us posted.  Many thanks!

May I ask how you obtained it?  I have tried almost every pharmacy in Albuquerque, NM and none will let me get it since I am not 50.  Looking at your screen name it appears you are not 50.  Did you go to Canada?

I live in canada and I'm over 65.

I'm now 2 months post shot.

since the day of the shot, march 25,

the burning intensity  has not decreased,

it  definitely has not lessened like it used to do after a few weeks.

when I had the shot, I was into one of these surges.

maybe I should have waited.

the burning now is like 'it' got 'locked in'

weather this has to do with the shingrix shot I have no idea.

this is where one has to be very careful, not to jump to conclusions.

in another month I'll have the 2nd shot.

I had the first shot Shingrix two weeks ago and have currently another outbreak. It’s different from the outbreaks I usually had, less bumps and it’s already almost healed again, after only three days. I will definitely get the second vaccination in 2 months.

      Your symptoms and photos match exactly what I've been dealing with on and off since October 2018 after I had a a really bad flu that brought about tingling on my lips. It felt like a cold sore was going to develop, but a bunch of tiny white bumps showed up that doctors have yet to fully explain what it is. I also have a constant feeling of a dry, chapped upper lip. A few weeks later the white tongue showed up. I'm also currently dealing with a change in taste in my mouth. I eventually tested positive fro HSV1 months later, but I don't know where on my body it is. I also have discoloration on my the tip of my penis. One dentist told me I had bacteria covering my tongue, and another dentist said nothing looked suspicious. I also get the cut on my tongue.  Prepare yourself for a journey of doctors telling you that you look normal when, in fact, you do not.

      @CheekyMunkey there is absolutely no way you, me or anyone has any chance of diagnosing what issues inside the mouth might be. There are simply too many issues that create similar looking outcomes. All I can say is that issues inside the mouth are way, way less likely to be related to herpes compared to if you were having issues on the lips.

      Hi mate.  Thank you for responding. I do feel better but I think the oral might be the issue. I was looking at my tongue and it looks white. Well whiter than normal. Also about 3 days ago I had a really sharp pain in my tongue which lasted like seconds. Later in the day when I saw it it had like a line cut into it. Is it a lesion? I have no pain in my tongue at all, no fluid filled sores but I noticed that Its shape isn't right. Like a bits missing on the tip of the right hand side. I've added two pics. It looks whiter in the pics then it actually is but I noticed red dots all down near the tip. Could that be something? Herpes? Also, where the tongue goes out of shape there is nothing on that side. I did burn my mouth on some pizza on the day I felt that sharp pain so not sure if that's got something to do with it.  https://ibb.co/zhphnMD https://ibb.co/G0pPRLh Thanks in advance.

      Personally, I'm still wondering how likely is it China will cure HSV before the States does ?...
