Hi-cold sores

Recommended Posts


Hi, I felt like I should join this thread because it sucks having no one to talk to. I only get cold sores, and I know some people think that is much better than having type 2, but I still get really depressed because of this. I got it when I was a kid which really frustrates me because it was through no fault of my own. It's not just the fact that I get cold sores that are HUGE (my lip swells up a lot) that bothers me, but mostly that i will have this virus for the rest of my life and can give it to anyone I kiss or share utensils with. Probably the worst thing about having it is having to hear people make fun of H sooooo much. For some reason it seems like the go to disease to make fun of and it really sucks. Well, thanks for reading.:(

      PesPes, there is no cure. You can treat symptoms and try to prevent outbreaks, but you will always have the virus and be able to pass it along. There is NO CURE at this point.

      Based on the sheet below, it would be around 10% per year without condoms with no active outbreaks. With condoms, 5.2% and condoms and antiviral therapy combined around 1.5-2.5%  https://herpesopportunity.com/downloads/herpes-opportunity-disclosure-handout.pdf

      So is there anyone that has tried this for which Valtrex/Acyclovir/Famvir doesn't work and have constant symptoms and problems?   It's expensive but if like 1 pill a week would work it would be worth it.....Trying to figure out if this works for people that the current AV's don't...

      Hi just wanted to share someone I found on Youtube who I think gives really good and honest herpes advice. She is an STD life coach who has had genital herpes for 9 years: https://m.youtube.com/channel/UC8AkCfC9_bcCvI7-sixkLJg/videos   Also check out Ella Dawson if you haven't yet seen her videos or website. Cheers:)
