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!

      My Neurologist prescribed me Escitalopram for the nerve pain. Really haven’t started taking it, I was hoping the nerve pain just stops. Some way some how he told me that I will never have an outbreak and I haven’t..Weird?  Anyway I’m married, for 15years. When I discovered I had HSV my wife got tested as we’ll found out she had it since college!! Didn’t know that the fever blisters she got in college was HSV...I trust that this is how I got it. But wouldn’t you know she has no symptoms at all other than she knows she has it. There maybe something to this that there is something else wrong here besides HSV.

      It’s not our heads that cause the sores I think this wound be very stupid for doctors to say as you can clearly see a sore.. however I do think if you are focused on a sensation constantly you will zone in on this feeling and always notice it I suffer from anxiety anyway in general so I do think some of my sensations maybe anxiety related.. but no or course cuts/ blisters  cannot be

      I've noticed a trend of people sharing stories about doctors telling them the tingling sensation is all in their head or caused by the patient themselves. My doctors did the same thing. I explained that I am not making myself confused and dizzy nor am I causing my skin to cut itself open on my penis and lips.
