That jury is still out… I’ve talked to someone overseeing crispr experiments on HSV… It’s far from miraculous.

What do you mean it's far from miraculous? i.e. be specific

Please elaborate. Crispr should be able to alter the virus' dna and be a cure.

Not really that simple. Crispr has problems getting at the latent virus's dna because the dna is too tightly wound. I don't understand all the details but no one as yet has been able to do much with the latent virus. That said, Keith Jerome's lab has shown some success with that issue. They're using a different editor, not Crispr, and have been able to clear 20 - 30% of the latent virus. There's still much to be done.

Thanks for that info. Well 20 - 30 % of the latent virus is a good start. Before now latent hsv1 was untouchable. This year we have also accurately mapped the actual physical virus for the first time. We can now finally see what the virus actually looks like. We are on the cusp of a cure. It's only a matter of time. Stay faithful people.

I know its a long time but imagine research and knowledge gained within the next 10 years. It should have us at a cures doorstep. (knock on wood)

      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.
