Advise - None stop OB for 2 months

Recommended Posts

skyline

I was diagnose with HSV1 positive in 3rd August and my lips tingling start around 9th August. 

Taking acylete 5 times per day and apply Acyclovir 5 times per day too... typically the dry lip skin peel off itself after 4 days. Then the next day can see that a new section seem like going to have a new one. 

I think i have like 4 - 5 times since 9th August the dry lip skin peel off and until now still not return back to "normal" lip. 

Any advise?

Hey @skyline, what sort of test did you have for 3 August that suggested you were positive for HSV-1?

Blood test

That probably means you've had HSV-1 for a long time. Much of the population obtains the virus in infancy and you are probably amongst this group.

What you are experiencing is not related to herpes. Seems like you are having a dry lip episode that has a number of causes but the most likely one is dehydration. I'd stop all drugs and drink 2-3 litres of water a day for the next week and see what transpires.

If you have concerns see your doctor in case there is a bacterial infection or other issue.

yup.... worry that LYSINE actually causing the this lip heaty issue. I am like drinking 2-3 liters of water everyday now but still.... perhaps should do like you say to stop all the drugs now and see.

Lysine does nothing for herpes, that's a myth, so yes you can stop that. Only take supplements that you were taking before you learnt you had HSV-1.

I'd just focus on a healthy diet with lots of water. Antivirals are not doing this, I'd suggest you probably do not need them for your particular infection. Only take what your doctor prescribes.

Thank you for your advise. I will do so. 

Did you ever solve this? Lysine isn't debunked, only valtrex shills who don't like the competition.

Where are the studies that show lysine reduces shedding similar to Valtrex?

Shedding is not the same as does nothing!

That's what I mean, where are the studies that show lysine does anything for shedding as opposed to nothing?

Valtrex makers won't fund them.  There are pharmaceutical shills lurking on every medical issue forum. Especially autism forums.

Do they, goodness? Do they live is Roswell too?

Can you point them out so they can be banned. I’ve never promoted the use of antivirals. I even tell people like you to stop using them... are you taking Valtrex?

      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?
