Man, this past week got me thinking. They are able to put a damned robot on Mars and take pictures and move it around and do all sorts of unimaginable things. Yet we still have not seen one damned advance in curing Herpes. I think they can easily cure it but are playing with us. Figures.

Hey just think of how many people are helping the economy by purchasing Valtrex, etc. HA!

They will one day find a cure, right after they make enough money off of Valtrex.....well I don't know how much is enough money. I just know it will be awhile.

Quick question:

Does anyone know when, where, how basically the history of herpes? We all know or kind of know the beginnings of HIV/AIDS, but does anyone know about herpes? How long has it been around?

Conspiracy theorists of the world...

Not that I find myself on the side of pharmaceutical companies often, but keep in mind that medical science has no cure for ANY virus, let alone the herpes simplex variety. In fact, when you think of it, there are very few magic bullets in life at all. Antibiotics and vaccines are solutions, but have their limitations (resistance and potential infection respectively). I'm glad Valtrex exists to relieve some discomfort.

I wouldn't wait for technology though. Focus on building a strong immune system. Your body's solutions are far more powerful than anything Merck or Glaxo will dream up!

I'm happy that Valtrex works for you. Valtrex doesn't work for everyone though, including myself.

Of course I'm happy that they have something to "relieve" the symptoms as they do most viruses. I understand that they don't have a cure for any virus to date. But I look up herpes everyday in the global news......they never mention trying either. It seems that the public that doesn't have HSV isn't worried about catching it either......not enough people are signing up to try to test a vaccine.

It was basically a joke, what I had said....but remember just because something works for you-doesn't work for everyone no matter how great your immune system works.

I've said before that I would rather many other diseases and viruses were cured way before Herpes. I can live with it-most people can't live with what they have.

But again, look at how much money people spend on something that they may have to take for the rest of their lives.

Just a joke to lighten a little bit of the air.

Believe me...I wish Valtrex worked for me.

      Yes, but every married person who I found out about that has this waited 6-8 months into the relationship to disclose it. But maybe you're right. If I had told her 6-7 months in, she'd still have Googled it and flipped out, and maybe it would have been harder then. I don't know. I don't see myself going through this level of pain and rejection so easily next time. I really don't. I'm taking the meds. I use protection. It's been almost a decade since I've had it so I'm not worried about shedding or passing it on so easily. British studies confirm that the first 2 years are the most contagious and we're passed that. I'm just over this. I've never been in so much emotional pain in my life.

      Is this herpes? I can’t find any pics that match this exactly and my symptoms don’t really match. I don’t have really any of the typical herpes symptoms other than pictured, so I figured it could be friction as I have recently been having a lot of sex with a new partner. Way more than normal. Started having unprotected sex about 3 - 4 weeks ago. These symptoms only started about 3-4 days ago. Felt burning in some areas and only some very few tiny red areas/spots appeared. Almost shiny in appearance. Seems to settle very quickly. They were only present for a day or so. Also had some very mild irritation after I pee but not during. This spot has 2 small red lumps that are now dry around the outside. It’s like it’s been rubbed off and the skin is dry and shiny underneath. It doesn’t seem to be lesion. There was no puss or any leakage, nor was the skin ever red under them. They also got better within a day or so. I still have red spots around but they are very small and not bunched together and some general discomfort but I feel it’s because I’ve touched it so much! Stressing a bit!  my research tells me friction burn/blister , Fungal ,herpes a bit of it all! I have no idea! Please help! Thanks in advance.

      I’m going to force him to get tested ! Thanks for your help !

      @EssenceL25 there really isn't a question mark around the source, it's your latest partner. The median time from infection to an outbreak of lesions upon initial infection is 4 days.  The only thing that isn't certain is the type I suggest.
