29 Aug Herpes Simplex Vaccine Information

Herpes VaccineWhile there are still no herpes cures available, new advances in medicine may make it possible for infected individuals to stop herpes sores and even reduce the risk of transmitting herpes to others. The Center for Clinical Studies in Houston is current conducting trials on a new vaccine that may be able to boost immunity to herpes and in turn suppress outbreaks.

Current herpes remedies on the market can effectively do the same thing. They are able to boost the immune system in order to suppress herpes within the infected cells. These types of alternatives to dangerous prescription drug remedies are extremely safe and result in no unwanted side-effects.

The Center for Clinical Studies’ Herpes Simplex Vaccine Experiment

“There is new hope for people who suffer from genital herpes. A new vaccine is being tested in Houston.

If it works, it could stop the outbreaks and literally put the herpes virus in remission.

Patients get a series of three shots in this blinded study, and they aren’t told if they got the treatment or not.

“It’s based on studies of people who were exposed to the virus and didn’t get infected and so the idea is these three shots will boost the immunity such that people don’t have outbreaks in the future,” said Dr. Stephen Tyring with the vaccine study.

And Dr. Tyring says researchers believe it may also prevent people from spreading the virus.”

Original story here.

The discovery of oral and genital herpes cures would not just be important to infected individuals and their sexual partners, but would benefit society in general. This type of injection would eliminate the need for expensive daily prescription herpes treatment and could lead to other important medical innovations as well.

Of course, natural “cures” for oral and genital herpes offer faster, cheaper, safer, and better over-all treatment than prescription remedies because of their lack of dangerous side effects. They offer the benefits of a boosted immune system comparable to the vaccination being tested in Houston without the pain of injections, either.

Until real cures that kill herpes labialis and genital herpes at the nerve root are created, natural herpes remedies are the best option to prevent cold sores, ward off viral shedding (infecting other when you don’t have active sores), and boost the healing time of lesions.

Additionally, be aware that many retailers make claims that their remedies for oral and genital herpes are true cures. Do not be deceived. If cures were created for oral or genital herpes, such treatment would be broadcasted world-wide. If Herpes Treatment Site is not reporting on so-called “cures,” then don’t bother with them at all!

25 May Signs of Genital Herpes in Women

signs of herpes in womenWhile the general signs of genital herpes in males and females are similar, there are some signs of herpes in women that do not affect men. Both sexes typically suffer with pain, itching and blisters, but many women experience the following unique symptoms:

  • Blisters on the vulva and vaginal opening
  • Cervicitis
  • Pain with urination
  • Infection and inflammation of the urethra
  • Vaginal discharge

Occasionally, women who get genital herpes do not experience any herpes symptoms, and they do not seek out herpes remedies. New research suggests that young women who are not aware they are infected with HSV 2 might be inciting the present herpes epidemic. Many women who have not been tested and see no indication that they have herpes and are unknowingly spreading HSV to others. …Read More»

22 May Herpes Zoster Infection

herpes zoster infectionHerpes zoster, more commonly known as shingles, is caused by the varicella-zoster virus — the very same virus that causes chicken pox common among children. A shingles infection typically results in a painful skin rash and blisters, but may cause a number of other symptoms including: abdominal pain, fever, chills, headache, joint pain, vision problems, swollen glands and more.

Shingles “cures” are often a treatment that boosts the immune system — this not only helps to prevent future shingles rashes, but also helps the lesions heal faster. The same herpes remedies used to control genital herpes are often used to treat all herpes infections. While true cures for these strains of herpes viruses do not exist, remedies that can keep blisters from forming are the next best thing to true cures. …Read More»

Because there are currently no cures for facial or genital herpes, men and women with herpes must try and find relief using either over the counter (OTC) herpes remedies or a herpes drug treatment through a doctor’s prescription. Facial herpes, usually caused by an HSV 1 infection (though it can be caused by genital herpes), can be very uncomfortable and embarrassing — and without remedies a fever blister may take up to 2 weeks for the healing process to complete. Be sure to avoid contact with others if you are suffering with a herpes labialis or genital herpes outbreak as they are very contagious at this point. OTC herpes remedies are available to help prevent herpes outbreaks and speed healing time.

30 Apr Herpes Treatment Options

herpes treatment optionsWhen a genital herpes outbreak occurs it most often results in a number of blisters in, on or around the genitals or rectum — and once these blisters erupt, they leave small sores that can take two to four weeks to heal. Herpes “cures” for herpes simplex type 2 range from washing with soap, applying ice and using natural herpes remedies to purchasing expensive prescription drugs and creams.

Because herpes is extremely contagious, finding a treatment for genital herpes that works is extremely important to prevent the spread of the disease. Suppressing herpes outbreaks dramatically reduces the chance that one will pass the virus on and infect sexual partners. While it is not always easy to pinpoint what leads to a herpes outbreak, the following conditions seems to be associated with frequent recurrences of the herpes simplex virus:

  • Stress
  • The Flu
  • A Fever of Cold
  • A Weakened Immune System

Boosting the immune system using an herbal herpes treatment may decrease the likelihood and severity of future herpes recurrences. …Read More»
