Recommended Posts

The official donation page has launched for Dr. Friedman's the **Herpes Simplex Virus Research Fund.**We are still awaiting the video from Dr. Friedman answering our questions and providing an overview of his timeline and plans, but we now have a page where we can post updates and track donations for this cause! It is expected this video will be comepleted by the end of January/ early February.

A goal of $50,000 has been proposed as this would allow Dr. Friedman to hire an additional person to work solely on his vaccine studies. This is huge and very attainable for our group!

Dr. Friedman has developed a prophylactic vaccine which has shown success in preventing HSV in both mice and guinea pigs. His approach uses an mRNA vaccine with specific messenger RNA (mRNA), which can create proteins necessary for a strong immune response. This vaccine stimulates three types of antibodies: one that blocks the herpes virus from entering cells, and two others that ensure the virus doesn't "turn off" innate immune system protective functions. This approach differs from other herpes vaccines, which often only rely on blocking virus's entry as the mode to attack the virus.

The purpose of our partnership with Dr. Friedman is to support his work to explore the therapeutic effects of this mRNA vaccine for those who already have HSV. We have seen the success of mRNA vaccines recently with COVID, so this is a very exciting opportunity for our community!

Please consider donating even a few dollars if you can spare it! I know times are tough, but we have the ability to take action and contribute to improve our lives and the lives of children's generation. No one should have to feel the less than because of a virus.

      Hey @Amnprsc I wouldn’t do anything too dramatic. Can you seek medical advice on what’s going on. Thats not likely to be related to herpes.

      As per title I got 4-5 tiny warts in pube area from leftover outbreaks, how to get rid off of them?    Is it a a bad idea to use a nailcutter and suffer through it? 😄   Or is there some oil/cream that I could use?

      This is ridiculous I have been trying to delete my account for weeks. I have sent emails to honeycomb support and have not received an email back. Why is there no "delete account" option under our settings tab? It shouldn't be this hard.

      the first & 3rd picture represent lesion in its current state, the pictures of more shine/redness represent use of ketaconazole ointment for fungal suspicion, otherwise lesion is dry, in fold of penis skin & painless, bloodless, no pimple like appearance, or  bumps! Just a flat and once flaky splotch that when skin unfolds comes together as a roundish splotch.   I am sorry about the size, & now lack of quality in pictures. I used an app to reduce their size & am really bad at using technology. I am mostly perplexed about the use or lack of need to use valtrex & the appearance single  lesion and any input knowledgeable users may have of its appearance. Thanks again for any input.
