      Don't forget there are two promising vaccines on the prophylactic front (but only pre-clinical): The Trivalent vaccine worked well on guinea pigs:  https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32347775/ The Einstein (Xvax) vaccine also has a ways to go: https://x-vax.com/ The fact HSV529 is in yet another clinical trial is good news for herpsters.

      thank you for the info. I am uncircumcised. I applied some clotrimazole cream during the last outbreak I noticed, which seem to do the trick (around a month ago). But now, there new dots are appearing at a different location on the glans. Wasnt sure if balanitis can come back so soon or if it could be something else.

      Looks like mild balanitis. If you are uncircumcised then thats normal every now and then due to accumulation of yeast and the irritation of the foreskin

      I think the simple reason is that this is a fund raiser that was started by our community rather than by Fred Hutch.  Or rather, FHC started it in response to our request.   I still think they should somehow feature it in their pages.  But anyway, that's just how they do it. Keep in mind that FHC's main focus is curing cancer.  It's a cancer research institute.  They might feel that putting stuff on their website that isn't directly related to cancer might give people the impression, especially cancer cure donors (who are by far the main donors to FHC), that FHC is losing its focus. So we have to work within these limits.   However, I do draw strength from the fact that FHC has tried to help us with the fund raiser.  Among others: 1.  When the new research paper is released, FHC has gotten an agreement with a prominent sexual health blogger, to promote the research and the fund raiser. 2.  There is another potential promotion in the works that might get back on track if the US is able to get the coronavirus under control. So FHC has actively helped us to promote the fund raiser.

4th time feeling this way! 🤦🏽‍♂️

So it’s been 4 months since I’ve been tested with supposedly HSV1 my igg was a 45.10 high, when first diagnosed I was told I could’ve had a uti which definitely was possible because symptoms were exactly the same as I read then I was prescribed to get a shot and some antibiotics, after all of that it cleared up within the week of medications being taken, my second time around it happened a month after being diagnosed with HSV1 I decided to have some protected sex which then reactived the uti I had the first time but this time it was very minor then the first one which then I told my doctor and was prescribed more antibiotics, The medication took about the same process to work after that I was good for about maybe another month then I decided I’d be clear again so I protected sex with the same partner and it came back again went again to the doctor and he prescribed me the medication he gave me the first time I was diagnosed I took it for a whole week and it never really worked I guess because my body was use to the same antibiotic but now it’s almost been a month in a half and the uncomfortablity drives me crazy, makes me feel so depressed and I work so it’s hard to have that full energy I had before all this. It sucks I wish I could just start all over because I feel disgusted in myself to know I could have something this serious and not be able to just fully get rid of it, also I believe I contacted it from receiving oral which the individual supposedly tells me that they definitely don’t have anything and I’m not very sexually actively to be honest when I received that I didn’t have any form of sex for 5 months before that, could some please tell me if this is really ghsv1 because this is plain out annoying to wake up to everyday

Not a lot to go on.  UTI symptoms are mostly during the initial outbreak.  Not during recurrences.  

therefore it doesn’t sound like herpes since it is only UTI symptoms.

Hsv can cause tingling and burning without outbreak. anxiety also can mimic uti symptoms.

Unless you have some other bacterial std, I would assume the uti symptoms are from anxiety.

Get tested for other stds, get your urine tested for uti  if you haven't and go to a specialist (dermatologist for std and urologist for uti)
