      My prognosis is that the funding for herpes will be either cut down or completely stop for sometime. Curing herpes was never on the priority list of NIH. Though i pray my prognosis goes wrong.

      I believe from others studies lysine showed mixed effects. HoweverI would question those studies and designs if they are looking at the right factors. The causative factors of chronic infections are a little more complicated than lysine yes or no.  Traditional diets as one can see are naturally high lysine and it seems important in the case of viral infections whether if appears to help or not on the surface.  I posted it as it’s just such a well written and referenced article and explains a lot of orthomolecular science (HTMA science) and is based on the same science as Synergy (science is science published or unpublished!). I cannot tell you how many times I was told this year “It’s not science till it’s published”.  I thought @hk81 might enjoy it as a jumping point into the foray of hazy patchwork of unpublished and published science while applying their keen intellect.  I give this resource to most people as I think it’s an excellent article.

      I take 1000mg of L-lysine daily.  I heard it helped tremendously with OBs. And I never have OB’s. So. I believe it!  (And I’m on no suppressive drugs)

      I don't  believe this will affect the HSV research too much.

anal discomfort since diagnosed

Recommended Posts

nope1234

I've been diagnosed since january and with my first OB my anal area was very very red and sore...all my lesions subsided but my anal area is still causing ALOT of discomfort. i never had anal in my life, could it be something else?? what could turn my butthole bright red for 4 months straight and it feels like glass in my butthole. I'm freaking out !!! I just want to feel normal even for a day

You'd have to look out for haemorrhoids here, most people start with enlarged veins in the area that you'd swear was a shard of glass.

do they usually last 4 months straight? and then get worse? so its possible it could be a coincidence and be something else or could it be H?

Afraid that haems can last a while and often not be to visible.

Can you see darkened veins? Maybe feel a bump or two?

I used to use diaper rash cream with zinc oxide. I felt like I could sit and walk comfortable again.

Find out what it is and we can go from there. Take a pic for your doc. If it is a ob off and on it can be intense for 6 most to a  year

Did the doctor examine your anus (digital probe, so to speak?)

The doctor's explanation sounds a bit suspect.  It sounds like a hemorrhoid.  Anyway, I'm not going to second guess the doctor.  But if it continues, you may also consider seeing a specialist (anal specialist), if your doctor is not one.

I have the same problem. I have not found relief.

Doctors look quick and don’t see a thing. My prostate is normal.

And you don’t have genital herpes, so that gives people with similar symptoms the curiosity to look further for possible explanations.

Could be an anal fissure. That's insanely painful.
