I’m gonna be 21 January first :) 

A New Years baby :)

So even if it's 10 years before they greatly reduce the effects of hsv (i.e. functional cure, give or take), you'll still be young. You're in good shape.

I think Jerome labs was recently able to get to like 20% or maybe more of the latent virus. I think last time it was only like 3-4%. I’m not sure if these are the exact numbers but you can definitely research more into it. Still not a lot but that’s a hell of an improvement. It’s not possible in any way shape or form for crispr to not be a solution for us somehow. Let’s hope they figure everything out so we’d only need it as a one time thing and that way it won’t have to stay in our bodies forever. It’s just nice to know progress is being made and is looking good, no matter how many of the people on this site try to tell you it’s hopeless. There is some hope!!

Hi There, it's good news that they can get to 20% latent virus. Could you please provide the related material? Academic paper or news report?

I sure as hell hope so. When that day comes (hopefully within the next decade) I say we put together a national “Fu$k you herpes” day. I’m going to make it a point to celebrate that day for the rest of my life! I’ll bust out a bottle of the finest scotch I can buy and walk around my house butt ass naked getting drunk and eating Cheetos lol. 

I’m very hopeful that some form of CRISPR will put an end to all our suffering once and for all. The  research that is being done these days is better then it’s ever been and that gives me hope. There might actually be a light at the end of this tunnel... even if we can’t see it just yet.

      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.
