Hello.

I've already been diagnosed with genital herpes. But now I'm nervous I may also have oral herpes. I've been getting what I believe to be pimples around my mouth (not clusters, one little dot at a time), but I got nervous it might be oral herpes so I went to get tested. Hopefully they can find out.

For now, I'm preparing myself for this new normal and trying to treat it like it is, without taking the medication.

I'm nervous about washing my face and putting on makeup and transferring it to other parts of my face. I do wash my hands obsessively, but I know that won't always help. Any advice on face washing, showering, or proceeding with the day to day?

      Regarding Excision BioTherapeutics, apparently in animals. Here's their pipeline. https://excisionbio.com/pipeline/ Note that they are expecting to go to human trials second quarter of this year. We'll see if it happens since these pipeline dates often change. By the way, there are also other companies making progress for an HIV cure.

      I'm glad I did the WB and can move forward. Thank you @WilsoInAus for being helpful with my many questions too. And also to @Tone123 who without his help, it would have been very difficult to Get the ball rolling! Thank you so much man. I owe you big time.

      Hey @DrumLoop8 terrific that you have a firm answer and are able to move forward with confidence. Thanks for reporting back on the outcomes, really great insights for others that may have similar concerns and unsure of how to proceed!

      There is no evidence that is the case, it was a belief but has never been shown in vivo. And even in vitro, a lab, the results are inconclusive as to whether arginine has any impact, beneficial or adverse.
