Hello, 

 

I recently found an organization Herpes Activist Networking to Dismantle Stigma see below:

https://herpes.education/hands-herpes-activists-networking-to-dismantle-stigma/

 

Apparently herpes awareness day is oct 13th and their mission is to remove stigma. I wonder if we could put a move for better treatment and work on getting a functional, or at least gen 003 for now. The list everyone who is on the board. Thoughts??

The reason why GEN-003 didn't proceed is because they ran out of funds.  So HANDS won't be able to make that proceed.

Getting to better treatments or cures requires money, unfortunately.  Fred Hutch is working on a cure or partial cure using gene editing (there's a thread about it).

You can contribute to the Fred Hutch Herpes cure fundraiser as well.  The link is in my signature (thank you if you have already).

      That is extremely rarely the case, although it may be mild, most everyone has an outbreak within days of infection. Correct she is blaming you because of your honesty when her boyfriend may have an oral HSV-1 infection. You also tend to find that with the news, some people align subsequent symptoms and convince themselves very readily it must be herpes. Very often, it simply isn’t.

      Hey MyOhMy, I don't have any answers, but I wanted to let you know that I'm having the same experience as you. You are not alone in this. I've had it for 16 months and I have outbreaks so constant I often can't tell when one ends and the next begins. (I usually don't have blisters, but I have near constant fatigue and nerve pains in my thighs and hips, sometimes mild fevers, there's a "flare up" when the nerve pains get noticeably worse about once a week or once every two weeks so I assume that's a new outbreak). Valtrex does not help me at all. I am immunocompetent and maintain a healthy lifestyle. I'll be seeing an immunologist in two months, which I'm sure won't help at all, but it's worth a shot Also to note: I also got cold sores multiple times (always mild) this past year while on valtrex, so something's gotta be going on with me.

      So I looked trivalent up, and found an interesting article. What also surprised me is, they haven't completely given up on GEN-003 yet. Trivalent would be great if it would work. Since it already is an approved drug. https://www.acsh.org/news/2019/04/12/will-antiviral-vaginal-gel-help-prevent-herpes-maybe-maybe-not-13944
