Hi Everyone,

I haven't been on here in awhile because my outbreak has not left me since I last posted. That must have been in March.

It first came like a big ulser and then exploded. (I have hsv 1 by the way). Then since then I have had a little white dimple in the same spot. I have tried breaking it with a needle and letting the healing take place but it just goes back to this white dimple.

My question is:

Is this still the herpes present and contagious on my body?

This herpes has destroyed me and I have secluded myself from society.

I have had guys interested in me but I push them all away. I am very depressed and watching my life spiral down the bin knowing I will never have what I was once worthy of.

How can I get rid of the herpes? I have tried the Zovirax 400mg tablets for months and all the anti virals around. I am marked I feel with this curse forever.

Now for you, the something positive. I am hoping this white dimple is nothing or that you might know of a way to rid it I have not tried yet.

Thank you for help and your time.

Best,

Damaged

please do not think i am making light of this but i have hsv 2 and i break out on my back when i tell someone i have it most are ok i do it after a bit of getting to know me. you do not have the plague. 1 in 4 people has it on their genitals it may just be dormant and they have not had any symptoms i believe most people would keep this infection knowledge to themselves and not tell anyone so as not to go through the pain you and i have to when putting ourselves out there. know you are not alone. you are very courageous do not give up on finding someone who will love you for who you are not a skin virus which is what it is a skin virus with a terrible stigma. peace to everyone suffering with this and it is painful but there are many meds out there find a doctor who will help and listen to your concerns the foods you may be eating may be aggravate this virus look up all the info you can in books and the internet. many blessings...

Dear Tulipblossom,

I am in tears. I have not addressed this problem as mentioned for months.

I wish the Zoviraz was working for me. I guess I do need to go and see my doctor. I am a giant herpe. I saw a dimple on lower eye lid a couple of days ago. I scratched it away and cautiously applied the CHoraphor or Damiclear whatever.

How can I rid this dipple. Should I scratch it off deeper with the needle? I know it it not medically advised but would this work? Thank you again Tulipblossom, I pray for all of us, that there is a cure coming in the next decade if not sooner. I want my life again. I want to remember what it feels like to be "normal".

Damaged, don't give up hope.. see your doctor about this dimple to figure out what it is and what to do about it. It doesn't sound typical of herpes.

Thanks VVK,

I hope it is not typical but I think it is from reading other posts way back when. Tullipblossom said I was courageous for not giving up but I have. I guess I need to call my Doctor monday. Bring in the new year in style.

By the way everyone have a great new year and may our dreams come true.

something positive

Don't give up hope and look at the positive side of things, you're still alive. Don't turn away from people because loved ones are the easiest way to cope, in my opinion. You never know if you're missing out on the best friends of your life because you're too afraid to talk to them. If someone doesn't want you because of a skin virus, then that's not the type of person you want to be around anyway. Take care, and best wishes.

      Little update again:  No improvements for me, still getting the same: constant redness on my penis, with tiny blisters forming as the old ones heal. This is together with continuous lethargy and a pulsating pain in my right groin lymph node. I also have sleeping problems, that are associated with the outbreaks. Usually, if the OB gets slightly better, I'll also sleep better. But right now, I wake up every morning too early like 6:30 feeling like my body is fighting something and I can't relax and sleep anymore. I get under 7 hours of sleep each night, but my body needs around 8-9 to feel normal. Unlike some others, I'm extremely sensitive to having enough sleep, which is also related to my heavy workouts. Of course it could be also the other way around, that I'm getting OBs because of poor sleep.  I went to get my bloods tested about a month ago and everything came back as normal (full blood count, thyroids etc.) but I found my vitamin D levels were low. I've been since spending a bit more time in the sun (normally avoid it) and eating a Vitamin D3 supplement daily (5000iu) without improvements to my OBs. I'm so disappointed, as I already got exited being onto something after finding that low Vitamin D-levels are associated inability of the body to fight viral diseases. Based on my research, 5000iu of D3 for several weeks should've definitely increased the levels by now, so I doubt that was the cause  . My testosterone and estradiol levels were also a bit high as I just changed testosterone medication, but I have confirmed in the past that this is not likely the cause.  My cortisol level was 17.3 ug% measured around 2pm (normal 3.7-19.4 ug% before 10AM, 2.9-17.3 ug% after 5PM). This could suggest that my cortisol levels are a bit high, but they are quite hard to measure and change during the day. I recall @IcantThinkofaName you suggested measuring these. Any comments? This was on a week day without any physical activities beforehand, except riding to the lab on a motorcycle in hot weather. Anyways, I can't really find any info on how to reduce these levels apart of relaxing more. For the record, I have tried quitting the gym completely (etc.).  I used some Xanax on the weekend which made me sleep well and feel much better. But obviously such addictive and strong benzodiazepine is not a long term solution. Next week I will try some cannabis to see if that helps with the sleep. I will get some indica strain and will vape it with a herbal vaporizer.  I will not give up the fight, next to try on the list: Confirm Vitamin D levels are back normal Quit whey protein for a week  Cannabis before bed  Amenalief at a higher dosage (200mg/day) Pritelivir from China Singles/varicella vaccine(?) ... any ideas welcome!

      If I could just piggy back off your idea and add a suggestion  how about with the same reasons you listed in your original statement, you / we start some type of petition or a mass email chain aimed at 60 minutes asking would they consider such a report ?

      That is interesting and I might try to stop it for a while or change brands. The thing is though, that I have been using whey protein daily for the last 10 years. I did change brand some time ago though to a pure, unflavoured whey isolate. I doubt that's the cause, but it's definitely worth a try. I'll see if I can find some alternatives for fast absorbing protein after my workouts. Maybe I can put chicken breast in the blender or similar.  I once tried this before I even hard Herpes and had a terrible side effect. It caused an itchy rash all over my groin.  Protected vaginal sex during days where my immunity was very low. Had been binge drinking on a party island.. but the condom broke, which is when I most likely caught the virus.

      I don't think there's any awareness whatsoever of herpes in China. So I doubt it's a priority. Hopefully our western "awareness" won't spread to China any time soon.
