Nice find. That Harvard scientist is a noted herpes expert. I have high hopes that she can develop some new treatment.

Though I wonder how much the mouse model translates in humans.

Still, this could help explain why the therapeutic vaccines haven’t been so successful.

Interesting, CD4's are also vital in suppressing HIV virus, the higher your CD4 count the more the virus is being suppressed by your immune system.

I'd love  to see to rate of herpes outbreaks and viral replication in HSV carriers with a  high CD4 count.

      I'm 99% confident that these are caused by Herpes. This is what they looked like when I first caught the virus, and in the same spots as well, although now much milder and smaller in size.  I have tested positive via swab when I first got the virus, and two times via blood test. However, since several people here are doubting my symptoms are caused by HSV, I might do another swab just to be sure. It's still good to rule anything else out beforehand.

      And btw  @ayekayelle I’m sorry you’re considering divorce. I hope you are able to work it out with him. But if you’re not happy I think it’s worth taking the risk of leaving! You deserve to be happy!

      Ikr! I’ll have guys be like “oh yeah you’re right, you’re not gross or less valuable but it is a deal breaker” I don’t really blame them (because I am still coming to terms with it being “not a big deal”)

      It's very possible he or you were mostly a carrier. Neither one of you have to have sores all you have to do is shed.
