Alleviating Constant burning

Recommended Posts

lennyblastoff

Hello there not new here but I've got some new info that I'd like to share. I've has hsv2 for 2 years now the last year being worse than the one before with constant burning and itching and did i mention burning? Horrible to the point that it was more than debilitating that I was happy about the corona virus quarantine so I could actually mentally rest 🤷‍♂️.

 

Anyways I'm sure like many of you dealing with this virus you've probably done your own research I've went as far as reading scientific papers trying to figure out how to kill the pain, which for someone with a business degree is harder than you could imagine anyways many of the drugs that are being tested right now are at least a decade behind compared to some of the findings in recently published papers which is depressing in itself but thank god for the published papers.

Now to get to the topic at hand the constant burning of my anus, thighs and even my genitals, what a mental strain. I'd went to the doctor like a year ago and mentioned crazy prodrome symptoms and her advice was to raise my immune system with no tips on what to do, mind you the doctor I was at least 250 pounds so what could I expect. This in turn lead me to the school of youtube now there's a plethora of things on there so in turn I tried a plethora of things at first i was just taking advice blindly and apply thing them. From taking suggested supplements eating certain diets (vegan did not help at all) to juicing and taking large doses of fruit and veggie smoothies. I tried the dr sebi products to but what didn't make sense to me was that yes my diet might've not been the best when I got this virus (living in the US) and yes diet does help your body in different ways but there was no way that it 100% was the source of the reason why I suffered so much. I had given up all. 

But still suffering I had to push on i figured instead of listening to all these people who had no proof I would to my own due diligence, my own research to save my sanity and my life

Anyways I was down bad and realized I was getting advice from people who didn't actually know and could feel what I was going through so i started diving deep into scientific research via pubmed and going back on youtube to learn the mechanisms in our body and how different viruses are treated and started tying all of this together and forming my own thesis and theories researching to see if anyone had experience with certain medications and supplements. In November 2019 I stumbled upon trans resveratrol which I realized that a product I had previously purchased from this https://electricphood.com/help/ company claiming to cure herpes with a round of supplements and diet had had but I never felt a difference when I had taken there's. So I went to the vitamin shop and purchased a bottle there the weekend I took those will never be forgotten the pain had diminished to levels You'd day dream about and al the itching would be gone for like 12 hours after taking 2 pills.

I thought I had managed the issue but was still dealing with the burning bad. So I went back to the doctor again were one mentioned that vitamin d is something that I should look into and had me get my vitamin d levels checked. they were significantly low lik 12-17 I believe anyways I started taking d3 and k2 and surprisingly I started feeling leaps better for the burning but it never got rid of the burn entirely and eventually even that stopped working. I tried ALA as recommended by a veteran member on her forget the name that didn't help so much anyways.

 

Quarantine had finally set in here in FL and I was feeling even worse burning Found a correlation between the burning and me smoking weed too (i smoke like everyday) and found out the pain I was feeling is similar to post herpetic neuralgia which is similar pudendal neuralgia which is similar to CPPS which is similar to BPH. I ended up searching a ton on pubmed about all 4, reading forums, youtube videos, etc. and stumbled upon this study https://sci-hub.se/https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0889159119314928?via%3Dihub https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0889159119314928?via%3Dihub 

which you can read over but they concluded that "In conclusion, our study supports the employment of S100A9 inhibitors for the treatment of acute herpetic neuralgia." 

The most well known s100a9 inhibitors known to date is cialis thats typically used for erectile disfunction, and with further more research i found this video on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DE2ivtOx_lk&t=9s

where they did a study on those with BPH and showed that tadalafil which is the generic name for cialis showed that it significantly helped and should be the first thing used to help those who suffer from bph.

So what did I do next? went to the doctor and asked for cialis for the reasons listed above, what did I get?

A prescription for mirtazapine smh which actually helped me tremendously which studies have actually backed aswell proving its benefit to post herpetic neuralgia https://www.jpsmjournal.com/article/S0885-3924(10)00130-2/pdf 

But it didn't absolve my issue so i did what i knew best and went back to researching found this grant request here https://grantome.com/grant/NIH/K01-CA187020-05 where the researcher is trying to prove that icariin which is a polyphenol found in horny goats weed inhibits s100a9 and pde5 which is what the study from sciencedirect is what is targeted. I noticed that horny goat weed is also a part of there Berberidaceae plant family which guess what pretty well known supplement is apart of that family BERBERINE.  So from there I went to vitamin shoppe and bout the dr mercola brand which also has mircopqq though im not sure what affect the Pqq might have my burning is virtually gone and im like 4-5 days in taking one a day with my dinner or lunch. 

 

I made this post to give you an educational insight and not just my experience I'm hoping you all can find some value in this post and spread the knowledge. Im just an accountant who stumbled upon this I feel like instead of just donating money to people like fred hutch who gets grants from the government we should come together and make a non profit where we work with doctors who actually deal with infectious diseases to apply research that is newly released. I should have had to suffer this long to find my own answers but I guess thats life.

Hey wassup @lennyblastoff. Few days ago I had also written a post regarding Turmeric curcumin intake which virtually stopped my eye's,hands inflammation ,groin but my genital pain is still there. (although 30-40% reduced). Aswagandha has virtually stopped my anal pain (I have discontinued it after 15 days usage.) The pain did become debilitating after 1 1/2 years of ignorance hence I am also doing lot of research. 

 

BTW turmeric is inline with Ur research article Berberidaceae plant family. In india there is also one more herb which was studied and they found it suppressed like more than 99% herpes in vitro Hypericum mysorense (2004).

Although I havenot tried personally, I have ordered it and soon gonna try. 

Just to add, Disease like  Alzheimer, senile dementia etc in old age  which may be caused due to various factors but among them HSV is major player , turmeric effectively fights them . (t's also major rip off for some type of cancerous cell).

 I hope there is complete cure for this shitand is  due in 10-15 years . I am betting high on CRISPR but wont mind if any other new cure pops up in a meanwhile.

I am going to try your suggestion as well "dr mercola brand which also has mircopqq" or for that matter may even try other supplements related to BERBERINE coz somehow this genital pain is persistent and it is caused by herpes majorly coz only acyclovir  completely stops it.

When i said inline about  turmeric  I meant to say in ASIA turmeric root belongs to  Berberidaceae plant family. I am seriously going to try as  many of those supplement related to these species from diff continent's if possible.

Also please note turmeric only has 2-3% cur cumin percent hence I use now food cur cumin 95% ~600 mg , . I believe cur-cumin is what been  studied a lot. and I encourage you go for cur cumin along with turmeric That being said I pop open up the pill and mix it with 1 spoon turmeric with warm milk. I will keep on experimenting and of course I have sleeping disorder hence  no wonder this pesky little stuff is bothering me very much.

 

Regarding ashwagandha it's kinda anti fungal,anti bacterial (at-least studies suggest, no study done of it's effectiveness on Herpes virus though) , I do have some drug resistant bacteria hence it helped  me immensely.

If you have hyperthyroid please avoid it. If you have hypothyroid it's awesome. Don't take more than 1/2 or 1 teaspoon usually during night time with warm water or milk but you should never take with turmeric, give it a gap of 30 to 60 min.

Last but not least check the cross results of VZV vaccine  (Zostavax ,shingrex )vaccine  study/trial test  done in Paris, I mean VZV vaccine cross effect in HSV's.

I guess the confusion was due to name's, it's my fault. A quick search results Tree turmeric belong to( named  bereberis aristata) to berberine genus, but there is difference in tree turmeric and normal "Turmeric" (curcumin lounga ).

I tried ordering dr mercola as well but no shipping to india for now. I did order local berberine supplements though plain one.(no ppq),  Hope something hits.

Regarding cur cumin it's anti inflammatory and specially usefull in neuro protection. Hope you also research something on ICP47, I am currently looking into it.

The below link also has plethora of information:

I have received local shushurut brand berberine today only. One of the user claimed it had awesome effect on lowering  his sugar. Currently I am on course of 2400 mg acivir for 10 days(till coming lunar eclipse). From Monday I had planned to  go on suppressive therapy like one acivir a day. (it's 3*800 mg now..thats what doctor said)

Currently almost everything is calm in my body except for little muscle pain here n there and it burns once in a while though.

 From  Monday may be for you, I will stop suppressive therapy and  I will start using my berberine  supplement  (obv turmeric with milk as well) for week and likely report by 13-15th July post which I will start my 5CC regime again without any medication for 15 days.

I would be happy to manage this shit this way without medication though. I may go for test again though. Last time it was 2020: June : 0.90 IGG HSV2, 6IGG HSV1.  

2019 : 1.33 HSV2 and 36 IGG HSV1.  2017 : 0.02 HSv2 (what a day) , approx 18-27 IGG HSV1. I have done PCR DNA but HSV2 never comes positive due to low threshold level coz of acyclovir.

I have local brand some homeopathy tablets which i take sometimes once a day or may be once a week,(small sugar pills)
