Has anyone been cured? Like completely cured, with negative test result...?

Just curious about how if so. There are so many things out there but hard to find people actually cured...

As far as I know it is impossible to be cured. The virus just stays in our blood until we'll leave this beautiful planet ;-)

A cure isn't currently possible. A negative blood test is though, because antivirals can drive the antibody count below 0.9. In terms of what's out there, the consensus of the medical and scientific communities is that there is no cure. Anyone saying there is is either deluded or, more likely, a scam artist. 

In ten years? Cure could be very possible.

Hard to find because it doesn't exist. Maybe in 50 years so get ready to live most if not all of your life with it,

No and it's hard to measure. Sometimes blood tests show false negatives and even then it's just testing for the antibodies and not the actual virus which lays dormant hiding from our immune systems. I heard a great explanation somewhere that it's like spilling glitter into a carpet and the only way to be cured would be to remove every little piece of glitter. the herpes will keep on replicating copies of itself and hiding out. There has been no known cure as far as we know and I'm not sure there will be anything soon. Maybe in 10+ years we will see better treatment.

It's not in your blood; It's in your nerve cells at specific areas.

Unfortunately over 50% of what people read on the internet is false. This falls deeply inside that I can confidently tell you.

There is no cure. Anyone saying otherwise is either ignorant, or is trying to take your money.

      Hey @Catalyst4 and welcome to the website. There is no relationship between lichen planes or psoriasis to herpes. Follow the treatment recommended by your doctor. If steroids it is then have no worries regarding herpes.

      Hi all - I’ve been getting weird recurrent redness on my glans since January. I foolishly had unprotected sex and this nightmare started a week or so later. It starts off as a small circle of redness that turns oval and then spreads. There is no bump or no fluid and it doesn’t itch and is not painful. It also gets flaky like psoriasis after a week or so then the skin becomes shiny and thick.  I got a biopsy that said it was possible Lichen Planus. But was a herpes infection responsible for triggering it? I had a swab when the inflammation was at it’s worse and it came back nEgative for herpes but I think it was done way too late. My dermatologist says it’s not herpes- but this all started after an unprotected sex encounter so I think it’s related to some infection somehow. It did go away completely with doxycycline and cortisone cream only to come back a couple of weeks later after finishing  the medication .  I’m set to get my blood test in a few weeks but that will only tell me if I’ve been exposed to HSV, not that the redness is actually HSV.  If it is HSV and it’s causing the Lichen Planus or psoriasis how do I treat it? Steroids will make me more susceptible to further outbreaks Does anyone get this shiny skin as well with their outbreak that does not go away on its own? i have pics I’m trying to upload but the size limitation is a problem ...

      Hi @hi202020 note that all immune disorders of over activity are related to the immune system attacking the body tissue. They can be highly serious issues such as: lupus, multiple sclerosis, diabetes (type 1), Hasimoto’s etc. Prostadynia is an umbrella term for a number of issues in the genital region. Often you are able to drill down to a more specific cause but sometimes not. The issues in the umbrella are such things as prostatitis, pudenal nerve ‘entrapment’, erythromelagia and fibromyalgia to name a few.

      The burning (neuralgia, neuropathy) is common...unfortunately even doctors don't know if it means your shedding or not....not necessarily though. There are a lot of nerve issues with herpes...it's way more a nerve issue than a skin issue. Do the antivirals help you? 
    • Kurdt01
      Short of something none of us knows about that comes completely out of left field (which is entirely possible), our best bet on something anytime soon is Pritelivir....hopefully it works as well as we all hope.
