Shedding History

Recommended Posts



I read this and came to realize shedding has only been known for a short time in history.

So this means we can spread it via all body fluids not merely by direct contact with lesions and having sex?! EEK :eek:

What I want to know is what do you do if, and how do you tell if, you have systemic herpes infection??? I don't think enough attention is being paid here or anywhere other than the site I found, about shedding and systemic infections. People need to know what to do and what complications there can be as a result of these things. I'm doing my own research on it and am scared as to my findings thus far. Not meaning to scare people but we should find out all we can... amen.

"Other Neurologic Diseases. Other neurologic syndromes that have been linked to HSV infection include epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, atypical pain syndromes, ascending or transverse myelitis (inflammation of the spinal column), and neuralgia (severe stabbing pain along a nerve or group of nerves)."

That is crazy... I didn't know that. So do you think that means that we can give someone else herpes just through kissing even if we have genital herpes?

I hadn't heard that before. Everything I heard was direct skin to skin... not blood or body fluids. That is scary!

No that's not what it means. You can't spread the virus from your mouth if you've got it genitally.

      All I know is what the pipeline says. And it says that trials don't start until 2019/2020. How long they will run and whether they will be successful remains to be seen. Also remember that the start of trials depends on whether the animal studies are successful. And there are always delays even when things are going well from a medical standpoint. So don't get your hopes too high that the trials will start as they currently state. Their biologic is a functional cure at best, not a sterilizing cure. But I don't think there will be too many complaints about that. I thought you already new about Excision Bio and their work.

      It is possible, but id be getting a definitive test. Id get a swab and blood test for confirmation.

      This is not caused most probably by herpes. Suggest you need to see a doctor to pursue some other directions.

      You said that you hoped this would help someone. Well, today it helped me.  I've been broken too many times to count. Unlike that glow stick though we get broken over and over again sometimes. But if we allow ourselves to heal from the brokenness; we can light up this dark world.Thank you:)
