I'm starting to wonder if these symptoms are even related to hsv?

Recommended Posts


I thought I was experiencing prodrome so I started my valacyclovir. I just finished my 3 day prescription yesterday. It didnt help whereas the medication helped almost immediately with my initial outbreak. 

Initial outbreak: about a month ago, lasted about 10 days- fever and flu like symptoms, woke up with sores on my labia and right next to vagina kind of on my inner thigh I suppose but close enough to be covered with underwear if that makes sense... acyclovir immediately showed improvement and stopped it from spreading or getting worse.

Second outbreak: started feeling the midnight restlessness and slight itch with no sores yet so I started valacyclovir. Seemed to help and then as soon as I finished the prescription it came. So I started another round of medicine! 😑 This time the medicine is not helping at all and I'm wondering if it's even related to hsv. Here are my symptoms this time around: 

Rash on my leg, multiple mosquito like bumps on both butt cheeks, mosquito like bumps on my hip and lower back, even one or 2 on my chest that are pretty painful and a few on my thigh. Theyve been there for about a week and just keep spreading to different places and getting worse. I'm starting to wonder if I have poison ivy or something because it feels different than my initial outbreak and medication is not working. After my initial outbreak I started alternating using oil of oregano and tea tree oil and I even wonder if maybe that's attracting mosquitos to these locations? I dont know, urg. 

I know I've posted so much lately but this is so new to me and I feel like I dont know much about it and Google really doesn't help much I've learned.

      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?

      Please. Go ahead for transparency sake...let him.know you tested negative on a western blot and every other test before you tell him you have hsv. Because we all know it's coming.  Feel the Blurne!!!

      Post flagged for moderation. You have once again hijacked the thread to self serve your own delusion, You’ve been warned multiple times by several moderators and on your last warning. Your diagnosis was not confirmed but hypothesised on the basis of a now false positive IgG test. The WB failed to confirm.
