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.

      More confusion! So the results have come back for both of the partners that I've been with over the last 3-4 years and they are both negative for type 1 and type 2. Where do I go next? Any advice?

      please look through the forum in exact and careful detail and inform yourself of less than usual circumstances to cover yourself.

      auto inoculation is rare and it can happen. off objects is debated but some people claim it happens. some people have experienced it happens easily.

      so you know practice good hygiene. i personal think use a heated towel rail and make sure your towels are fully hot and dry. there were studies in the 80's showing it can live on towels for 75 hours. The herpes association say most experts agree it cannot be caught off a towel. That is most experts not all. Some people end up with it on their body and one has to wonder how? Towels I would guess.

      Things that tend to stay kinda wet or so on. cups are another one that fit that i think.

      I remember being at university once and being in the bathroom while a girl was on the phone to her friend.She thought she had a bite on her face but clear to me someone with herpes had kissed her on the cheek recently, it didnt look typical just her skin peeling. 

      I am not an expert though or a doctor so do your own research.

      Update: The creme that contains the tetrapodal zinc oxide still isn't available at Gorch Fock Apotheke Kiel. I called them today: same status as last year and they have no further information on when and if it will be available again.

      Lilian, the zinc acetate we are talking about here is different from the tetrapodal zinc oxide that you are mentioning. But thanks for the reminder. The ointment that contains the tetrapodal zinc oxide still isn't available at Gorch Fock Apotheke Kiel. I called them today: same status as last year and they have no further information on when and if it will be available again.

      I've had neg swabs but I am sure you'll get it. Follow the process. I haven't read the thread in exact detail, but if you have documentation of doctors mishandling your case when you get/ if you get a poss inform them in writing as well as the medical board I think.  Under diagnosis is as problematic as false pos and reducing transmission is good.
