SHINGRIX & Chicken Pox Vaccine & HSV

Recommended Posts

https://www.dovepress.com/efficacy-of-the-anti-vzv-anti-hsv3-vaccine-in-hsv1-and-hsv2-recurrent--peer-reviewed-article-OAJCT

I came across this and other articles looking for info on  the Shingles vaccine providing some kind of cross protection against HSV 1 & 2.

This one is about the Chicken Pox vaccine.

I had also seen info on the "French Protocol" . There are also earlier threads here about peoples experience with Zostavax etc.

Anyone tried the Shingrix vaccine ?

Any issues ?

Thanks

I know there are some posts on here where some people have taking it with good results. Hope they post here so we dont have to go digging for results.  Ive been thinking about getting it and giving it a shot (pun intended). I'm just curios about which one  to get and how to get it when you're not 50.

Does anyone know if one vaccine has more potential to help than another? (I.e. shingles vs chicken pox)

I had received the Zostavax vaccine six years ago.  It was not particularly effective against shingles and/or anything else.  Mid-October 2018 I received part A of the shingles vaccine Shingrix.   On Jan. 16, 2019, I received part Shingrix part B.  Both times, I had flu like symptoms (headache, body ache, muscle ache) for 24 hours.

Actually, I think part B was worse—but I was told both part A and B are identical.  I will try and remember to keep you posted.  Henry

@JHenry -- Has the shots help any HSV symptoms? Like neuralgia?

It’s been less than a month, too soon to say.   I’ve tracked my occurrences for years, with a little history—I’ll be better to judge if there has been a positive side effect.

I got the "old" shingles vaccine back when that was what they were peddling.  It was after that by a couple of years maybe that i had my first BO.  I wondered if it was somehow to blame, as i hadnt had sex and I couldnt imagine how i could have H.  I have not been eager to get the new shingles vaccine.  I like for the dust to settle on new meds and vaccines they r pushing.  But this is interesting and will follow this thread to see how u r affected.  Keep us posted & thanks!

Varivax is available on a walk in basis from just about any pharmacy. It was 180$ at Walgreens. Side effects... very sore arm, fever, headache for 4 days. I’ve not had an outbreak or prodrome backpain since January.

Would you mind telling me which state you are in?  I just called Buffalo NY and they said they don’t have it available.  Thank you

This stuff doesn't work. Lots of people in forums have tried and all said they still got outbreaks. I tried. Didn't work.

I have posted before on here stating that I haven't had an OB in a year - after experiencing several OBs the first year of exposure.

2 things to report:

1. I had the SHINGRIX vaccine (1st) about 2 weeks ago.

2. I am just now (today) experiencing the initial symptoms of my first OB in a year - neuralgia near the area and into my thigh.

I will say the last two weeks have been extremely stressful for me  at home and work. I experience some severe financial crisis and at the same time had some bad news at work. Luckily - because of the stress I had already decided to take next week off of work. Glad I already planned that. I'm on 2g /day of Valtrex today. I don't think the SHINGRIX had anything to do w/ todays OB. But who knows?

      Have you received any clarification on these signs and symptoms? I have been experiencing the same thing with the nerve pain in the same approximate locations and was wondering if you had found anything out about it being related to HSV-2?

      Hi all  thanks for getting back to me. I had a swab and it came back negative . But I’m still not convinced. I’m gonna see a specialist I think . I’ve taken photos and to me there look like scabs healing.    I am now freaking out more because I have started a new relationship and the other day she broke out in 3 cold sores. She said this is the first time this has happened. I feel ashamed I may have given this to her . I have spoken to her and told her my fears and this may have now ruined my relationship.  I don’t know if it’s ok to share pictures on here but if it’s ok I would like to do this and get peoples thoughts

      Hey @K1009 I can report that this is entirely consistent with a recent infection. Your body can take a few months to generate and stabilise the immune responses. The outbreaks can be a bit unrelenting during this period. Your body will get in top of it. Is this a genital outbreak from oral sex?
