Outbreaks and meds

Recommended Posts


I've been reading up on alot of this and I'm just curious about the meds they offer here. They stop it from replicating and others keep the antibodies down. Just a thought and I'd appreciate any input on this. Wouldn't you much rather have high antibodies for this so the immune system can keep it at bay. Or am I all the way off?

The medications are mainly based on disrupting replication.

I am not aware of medications for herpes with the purpose of reducing antibodies directly. Do you have an example?

I don't have an example no. I'm just curious if the meds should be taking if it's a mild ob. I would think to let antibodies built to keep it at bay. For replication purposes tho it's a good idea to take the meds you think?

      No the red bumps don’t suggest herpes on their own. Please obtain the test :)

      Thank you for getting back to me! Even the tiny red dots/bumps very close to the clitoris look fine? And maybe my symptoms are cause by my anciety? I haven't gotten any type of herpes test done tbh I'm terrified to do so but I know it needs to be done

      Did you have a genital outbreak? Did you have any testing done (swab, igg blood test?) From my understanding self inoculation is very rare and very unlikely if you have had HSV-1 since childhood. I don’t think you transferred your oral HSV-1 infection to yourself genitally.

      I was in a long term relationship, got tested regularly. He got tested (possibly not for H).. we mostly wore condoms.. even after negative tests.  However,  it still happened. This doesn't discriminate.  My dr. agreed that it wasn't fair and that sometimes life is like spinning a wheel. I can't say if a one night stand is worse. Most of us got blindsided with our diagnosis

      Thank you for explaining to Cas9 the importance of diversity of opinion. If Cas9 had a technical issue with my language agreed he should have explained that kindly and politely   I am glad he admitted to getting angry and behaving inappropriately. I have since blocked  Cas9 as admin got back to me with the block function.  I personally do believe that synergy may be an effective cure for some. I also personally believe that the body has the ability to clear most chronic illnesses althou it does have limits. This is my opinion. Yes I am yet to test. As I have stated some people here have achieved a negative blood test although some have not and some have had a huge reduction of symptoms. Most people are smart enough to read all the threads as I have  I have dealt with synergy and I believe their testimonials to be the truth   my symptoms are reducing. And while I do not suggest downing a bottle of the amino acids one thing I can tell you is that their product does not do nothing  as I did almost down half a bottle There are a number of science papers showing some amino acids can treat herpes effectively one of them a recent paper saying glutamine was as effective or more effective than anti viral drugs.  I have experienced many anectotol things in my own life that give me confidence in alt med.  It is up to each person to evaluate their own health choices on their own personal probabilities and understanding of the state of science and reality. I well understand the difficulty of that in today's climate.  Im not a blow in and committed to sharing my results and experiences  I'll check in when I reach that point where I'm no longer experiencing symptoms     i know some some people have failed but I feel because of my various experiences I bring a bit more to the table for my own success anyone should evaluate their own situation with a chosen experienced health team that is well researched
