Don't forget there are two promising vaccines on the prophylactic front (but only pre-clinical):
The Trivalent vaccine worked well on guinea pigs:
The Einstein (Xvax) vaccine also has a ways to go:
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.
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.
