Just angry...help

Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed with HSV2 in July of 2017...almost been a year and I swear I can't take it. I have had about 5 outbreaks in that time and all of them except for the one that angered me this weekend have been in the same location. I have some questions...I am an uncircumcised male and all the outbreaks have been in the same spot on my foreskin, I have immediately used valtrex (acyclovirand it seems to minimize the impact of the OB but I cant keep doing this. It seems i go a few weeks clean then another pops up. I eat pretty well and exercise, i left my job last Sept and have been unemployed for the past 8 months but it was for good reason. I was so stressed that I had to leave and I have been traveling the world and enjoying life since...now actively looking for work again because well I am running out of money and need insurance lol. Sorry for rambling...but my main questions are, since I am uncircumcised and all my outbreaks have happened on my large foreskin, can i just get circumcised and that would rid me of herpes? God i hope so, i will go this week if i can. The recent OB I am currently experiencing is massive, never had one like this before...I haven't done anything major the past week to warrant it other than go in the ocean, at a few more pizza slices then normal....any suggestions? I have been a bit stressed looking for work again but not major. I stay pretty healthy and even in terms of mental health but this OB has about 6 little blisters and it is now on a brand new spot on my foreskin...so that is worrying me. Again, I have only had the diagnosis for a little under a year. I just want some advice and help. I'm very close to putting wart remover or honestly the thought of burning them came to mind...i hate it that much. Someone please talk me off the ledge or just give me some advice or a remedy that could help me :( does it get better??? Thank you in advance, hope everyone has a great weekend. Any over the internet medicine I can grab?

Circumcising will not rid you of it unfortunately. A few people on here have had success with topical applications such as oil of oregano and lemon balm perhaps you can try those?

I've tried almost everything...have heard of oil of oregano but havent tried it yet. I'll give it a go but I've just lost hope on anything helping...just wondering if my symptoms are normal. 5 or 6 times in 9-10 months since I've been diagnosed?

Feeling Normal Again

I was having horrible reoccurring OBs. I tried everything: oil of oregeno, tea tree oil, acv, colloidal silver, coconut oil, etc...

I finally found something that actually works, Neem capsules and Neem oil. Surprised at how very affordable they were, I started off taking Organic India neem capsules twice a day. And rubbing daily NOW brand neem oil, anywhere I'd ever even had an itch, tingle, or sore.

Almost immediate results, within a day or two, no pain or itching. Between 1-2 months, I cut back to taking neem one week on, two weeks off, and only rubbing on the neem oil once a week before bed. 

Outbreak free for almost 2 years now. If I ever even feel the slightest itch or tingle, I apply neem oil for a couple of days, and the blisters never even surface!!

      In my case, the symptoms of keratitis appeared suddenly, while I was waiting for the bus on a bus stop. I had a feeling like something burst in my left eye. The eye immediately became red, very watery, painful and I couldn't look at the light. There was a hospital nearby, so in half an hour I had an appointment with an ophthalmologist who diagnosed keratitis and gave me a prescription for some eye drops. The instruction for the eye drops mentioned that this medicine was used against keratitis caused  the herpes virus. That's how I found out that my keratitis was a viral one. For the next 15 years I had relapses of the keratitis. I was lucky that the corneal clouding was far enough away from the pupils and didn't affect my vision. Since I started using the garlic solution 18 years ago, I've successfully been preventing any keratitis relapses which sometimes try to come back. In case of viral keratitis there's no discharge from the eyes. If you have some discharge, it may possibly mean that you have a bacterial infection which should be treated with antibiotics. The problem is in finding the right drug for your particular case, the particular antibiotics that can kill the infection in your eyes. Garlic has both anti-viral and antibacterial properties, so you can try this method, it won't do you any harm anyway. Make the garlic solution with water as described in my post above. Apply it to the closed eyelids every hour during the day and every 2 hours during the night. Two days will be enough to see if garlic has any affect in your case, whether it makes their condition any better. Try this and let me know how it goes, write to me at  vasilenko.igor@inbox.ru Kind regards, Igor Vasilenko

      Man, I think you need to meet people before you disclose to them. Having said that, I've disclosed via text and that worked for me with my ex girlfriend. We were together almost two years. Gotta get out there and take a few hits, to iron out your approach.

      Shit now I'm worried.   My partner had no symptoms, and never has and does not know status.   Has gone to be tested too.  Recently cleared of other std's but honestly we never discussed HSV.
