The Virus sleeps at night

Recommended Posts


good evening ...

Quickie.... I seem to find relief around bedtime. It seems the virus sleeps when I sleep. And as the morning rolls on, the itching and burning get worse. Just wondering if anybody else has experienced this pattern. And as I always mention, I have not had a visible outbreak yet. Tested positive in January...

In my experience the virus does not sleep at night.

I have woken up with an outbreak before. Having gone to sleep with none.

However this could be because I was very tired when I went to sleep both those times. Also it was when I first got this virus so maybe my body was not as good at fighting it when I was alseep.

Your body actually repairs muscles and rejuvinates whilst you sleep. While you are resting it is busy at work.

I don't really have a comment for this poster, I just wanted to get my old thread off the front page, sorry.

Mine doesn't sleep at night either. Everyone is different, though.

      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:)
