    Love is fleeting, but herpes is forever. ( no more??)

    Interested in some comments from forum knowledgeables, perhaps Rak Thai May be able to advise.

    Have had my understanding of herpes challenged this week.

    My 20 year old stepson has been to our local sexual health clinic this week as he has had a lesion on his willie, lymph node enlargement in the groin and generally unwell. They told him he has herpes and it is nothing to worry about, 70% of the population have it. They gave him a 5 day course of Acyclovir and said that was all that was needed.

    My first thoughts were get your girl friend in there as she will need treatment as well. My wife called the sexual health clinic and was told:

    No need for the girlfriend to have an appointment unless she has symptoms
    They would not treat her unless she was symptomatic anyway
    It's absolutely nothing to worry about, we all carry the virus.


    No interest in contact tracing etc.

    Is this really the new world approach to herpes??

    The new world approach to Herpes goes a bit further, but yes, this is the normal management..

    There is a large group of Herpes viruses, the three most common being Herpes Simplex 1 and 2 and the Herpes Varicella-Zoster virus.

    These Herpes viruses can evade the human immune system after a first infection by retreating in neurological tissue and making some surface proteins that mimic human surface proteins, so the human immune system does not recognize the virus as "foreign".
    So, once infected, the virus stays in the body for life!

    Infections can reoccur, usually when resistance is down. This can be treated with antiviral drugs, but although the symptoms disappear, the virus never does..

    For the Varicella Zoster virus there is a vaccine, which is widely used. This vaccine prevents the virus from colonizing the body so the virus will not be present.
    Thing is, immunity from vaccination lasts about 10-15 years, then disappears. So if an individual is not re-vaccinated regular, there is the risk of a first Chickenpox infection at an older age.
    And Primo (first) infections can be much more severe at an older age than in infancy. For this reason vaccination is not common in many countries.

    There are vaccines for Herpes Simplex 1 and 2 now being tested. They will be on the market soon (or maybe already are, not sure).

    The company that finds a cure for Herpes 'could' become Zillionars , but If they ever found a cure it would likely not be released as the Pharmaceutical Companies would make much more in the long run selling the very expensive Acyclovir.

    The patent on Acyclovir has expired years ago. So the price of Acyclovir is the market price. Anyone can make and sell it, so I think they cannot do that for a cheaper price than it's sold for now..
    7$ now for 30 tablets is the cheapest.. Not too expensive I think.

    I didn't start using condoms until my divorce in 2005. That's sex without a condom from 1972 to 2005. But I was with my ex since 1985. So that's 13 years of farking around with many partners. I guess I feel victorious that I haven't contracted the dreaded herpes. Or is it possible I have but it just hasn't become active?
    I just girl in bar. Buy me one dink?....

    Not likely you have it without ever having had symptoms..
    Never had any cold sores either?

    If so many of the population have it, Is there a test for it if you've never had any symptoms?

    There are tests for Herpes Simplex 2 (genital herpes), but there is little relevance to test.
    Think about what the consequences of a positive or negative test could or should be?

    Testing is used for immune deficient people (for example in HIV or before chemotherapy) and when ladies have a possible genital infection before childbirth..
