Fist outbreak of HSV1 on genitals

Recommended Posts

England1995

Hi everyone, 

I recently got diagnosed with HSV1, it started as two lesions on my inner labia, which at first I thought were two tears from having sex... if only. 

So on Sunday morning, I noticed pain, and on Wednesday I was diagnosed, and on Thursday I started taking 2 x 500 mg of Valtrex. So in total, I have been on medication now for three days, and the doctor told me to take the medication for five days. 

But, I have only had very very minimal relief in my symptoms, I feel like now I have a new outbreak around my anus. Basically, IN SO MUCH PAIN, I can hardly walk, I have looked online and some pages say use vaseline but some say not to but anything on it. I am taking paracetamol and ibuprofen. But its so sore, I think once I am not in pain and the OB is over I will also mentally feel better.the rock pain GIF by WWE

      It was not the main point of the discussion. Did I write that I believe in such an approach? I only referred to it because I wanted to point out that researchers have always been looking at the condition called latency, trying to demystify it.

      I'm not the one who claimed that he said that, and I don't have time now to read the literature to try and find it. Bob made the claim so if anything then he should be the one to back it up. I am not doubting that the fasting mimicking diet works to get autophagy going. It's a vegetable soup with some fat, so it makes sense that it would - glucose and protein inhibit autophagy, so just leave them both out and run on fat and micronutrients for a while. It's actually a kind of ketogenic diet, just without protein. Yet at the same time as promoting this specific type of keto diet, he trashes the standard keto diet with arguments that make no sense to me. That's why he seems suspect to me, because it looks like he is trying to tell people that his own expensive product is the only way to get the coveted autophagy, that you can't get it yourself simply through doing keto and/or intermittent fasting. And his product is quite overpriced for a simple vegetable soup, which is all it really is. I can make that myself. Or just boil some veggies and add some butter or a creamy sauce, I used to eat such meals quite often actually before I went carnivore. I must have been getting lots of autophagy then without even realising it. Yes, it might be that he is right about the onset of autophagy, or half-right if it depends on how keto-adapted you are. But since he has a vested interest, his word should not count as evidence for us. I don't think that's being unfair to him. If Bob wants us to believe it, he needs to provide evidence from a neutral source. @Bob8857 Do you have any better evidence?
