I stated earlier to Layla that I really am skeptic and like to think I avoid false hope but since being diagnosed in January I can't help but research everything I can about HSV to see where the world is on this. I don't know if there is a cure but have found some interesting info that I wanted to share. I truly think Ozone and HBOT can help alot of us and there is a little bit of politics involved. I don't really get bothered by my symptoms so much as I hate how I may infect others and the stigma that goes with it. For those interested check these things out and I hope it at least provides you with a better day. Sorry that I don't have specific sites but see what you can find:

Ribavirin: Used in other countries to supress H (among other viruses)and claimed by Richard Renda (kind of a flake) to cure. You can't deny the treatment aspect of it though, and check out how it was used to treat the Hanta virus in 1997 when the FDA got freaked out about a possible national outbreak of Hanta. Also called Vilona in Latin America. Renda claims to treat two repeated outbreaks and no more will come. Used in US to treat Hep C and major primary HSV in certain circumstances.

Vaccine: Current studies say it reduces transmission by up to 70% and may be available in 2005. You can join clinicals if you qualify. A vaccine will ease the stigma and help a little for those worried about a non infected partner or are single. Also "invisible condom" (gel) that has been shown to prevent the transmission of STD's and can curtail the latex blues. Not alot of research since late 2003.

AuRx & Cytogenix: private research companies that are making strides in treatment and/or possible cure. Investors are pumped about it. It would take a buy out from a major Pharm company and they want numbers to sustain profits.

HBOT & Ozone: I think there is real hope here with healthy living. Too many sites to list and watch out for Quacks. More research needs to focused on here but I think the Pharms are keeping a major lid on this as the possible treatment range is huge and non-patentable. Cuba and Germany are leading the way. Put it this way, I am thinking seriously about faking the Bendz to try the Hyperbaric theory out.

Confused though that people have been trying this stuff already and noone reports being cured yet. You will find that some of the info is being suppressed by someone/thing somehow. i find it hard to believe that someone cured wouldn't post the secret everywhere. Decide for yourself and happy hunting!

      Hi "Jeremy"..... I agree, the topic of your HSV status does not need to be something you disclose too soon in a developing relationship..... get to know each other first....see how it's going and as it progresses, then the HSV issue will naturally need to be revealed.... it's my personal opinion though that before there is any sexual encounter you ought to disclose your HSV status.... I know some will disagree with me on this but, I think it is morally wrong not to disclose first.  This can be a make/break situation for most people but, again, I feel it is simply wrong not to give the other person the whole story since your decision not to disclose could put their health at risk.... that is simply not an option in my opinion.  Looking back to my "pre-HSV" life I most certainly would want my partner to disclose their HSV+ status before intimacy so that I could make my decision as to whether I want to take that risk or not....

      Thanks, CHT. I appreciate the feedback. The whole trauma of going through this has led me to figure out a lot about myself and my attachment wounds, so I'm taking courses to come out of this better. This girl really was my dream woman in so many ways, it's been the hardest heartbreak to deal with ever. I'm truly in a lot of pain, but using the pain as fuel to launch that new business and work with coaches. I also opened up to my family about HSV, so my parents and sister know now, and they were very loving and accepting of it. Since opening up about it, I feel way better around this thing. After opening up, I also found out that some mutual friends in our family have discordant couples who are married with children, so HSV hasn't stopped them from living a loving life. The thing is... all of these couples I mention did not disclose until 6-8 months into the relationship. So now I'm thinking it might be better not to disclose until I know things are very serious. I'll of course stay on the medication and use protection, but maybe this is a better route than disclosing upfront and scaring women off.

      Hey @Lcj987 and welcome to the website. You can be sure that isn't HSV-2, looks nothing like it. It is much more likely to be folliculitis or inflamed fordyce spots.

      Hey @JackThrowAway herpes causes an outbreak where it enters the body first and maybe a progressive spread. If it doesn't cause an outbreak at the entry site then it won't cause one elsewhere, it also won't 'jump' upon infection - it would be more likely that the lesions are continuous from the penis to the anus. Nevertheless, testing trumps symptoms or any interpretation of symptoms. The correct conclusive result arises when: you have a positive swab; or An IgG HSV-2 level over 3.5 (Herpeselect test).

      Slept with someone unprotected, roughly 2 weeks ago now. I felt generally unwell the couple of days after but I’d been drinking the whole weekend and didn’t have much sleep either of the days of that weekend so put it down to that. 6 days after I noticed these spots appear on the shaft of my penis. Along with symptoms of discomfort in my shaft in the couple of days prior to them appearing. No pain when urinating at all that I have noticed. They don’t hurt, itch or tingle and they don’t have fluid in from what I can see or feel if I squeeze them and have never burst? I went to a sexual health clinic to get checked up, they took bloods to do a full test and looked at the spots but said they saw nothing that concerned them but I’m not sure about that, any advice? The smaller spots under the shaft are just follicles I had diagnosed years ago and non-sti related.
