Hey there,

PH Level control is the way to go.

The story:

I've had uncontrollable herpes outbreaks for 18 years...While currently its incurable, I've continued looking for a control to outbreaks.

Originally I went to the doctor and they prescribed Valtrex. Its effect reduced over time and totally stopped working for me after the 5th year.

Unbelievably, in 18 years the pharmaceutical companies have nothing else (Conspiracy?) !

Anyway, over those 18 years I tried everything I could including all the scams. DMSO, Oxygen drops, Olive leaf.. all that crap didn't work at all.

ACV TRIAL:

About 2 years ago I tried Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) during an outbreak with significant success.

I took ACV 3 times a day during outbreak to try to suppress the attack. I got the legions to go in 2 days as opposed to 9 days untreated.

PH LEVEL TRIAL:

I've since learnt that its not the ACV that is having the effect but the change it makes to my PH level.

For the last 6 months I've been trialing Antacids to increase my PH level during outbreaks with very encouraging results.

During an outbreak I take Eno (antacid) twice a day and have noticed that the lesions don't make it to the surface. I can feel them trying.

THE RESULT:

I've just had an unusually massive attack last month with the back of both my legs painfully hypersensitive (usually only one leg) and the usual prodrome genital irritations. I maintained a higher than normal PH level using the Antacids and measuring with personal PH testing Litmus from local pharmacy (Best way to measure is to piss on it).

The lesions didn't make it the surface. Very encouraging.

WHAT I WANT:

I'm very keen to hear from anyone who is using (or can try)  this approach and post the results.

The pharmacies can't afford to help us... so I turn to the people I trust... those with herpes.

Still doing my lemon water daily and outbreak free despite eating white a bit of chocolate lately which typically triggers an outbreak. 

How crazy something as simple as lemon water is controling my herpes!?I c oouldn't be more excited!

      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.

      @WilsoInAusi wish you were right.  you can't say that with such confidence having never met me though.  I had one MD look at my sore on Sunday @ 8pm, said it was not looking herpetic but to come back in the morning.  I came back in the morning and he said it looked exactly like a cold sore/HSV1 based on the changes / "ablative look" to the skin around the lip.  The Dermatologists have never seen me with a sore until yesterday, too, and had only seen pictures.  They're used to the classic HSV2 look that shows up in Google Images. I think the swab test will be definitive - we broke open the sore and sent it off within  48 hours of appearing.  I'm also waiting for my 13 week IGG type specific HerpeSelect Immunoblot any day now using RequestATest - LabCorp.

      Not really wanting to call Terry.  I'll be checking the term anecdotal as I agree it may not be the best term. Maryland University seems to disagree and there was a researcher looking into random transmissions off poss objects in the eighties.

      There are two cases of torts in the USA in regards to transmission from surfaces. These require a 50% probability in causation and would be medically confirmed. I would say the reason it is less documented as people just deal with it and get on with their lives or it happens more frequently in lower socio economic groups that all just go into denial.

      I'm collecting the less than usual experiences Wilson, and not all professionals agree with Terry. These myths in my experience do not always get around with no basis.

      The thread was more about antibodies any ways and I was just mostly sharing my experience of reading  those who claim a neg IgG. I am sorry I veered from that here.

      One person I have read here claim neg IgG. And years ago there were two people who also claimed neg IgG.

      It is up to each person to do their own research before they spend money on products.
