WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT IT?
The most common and noticeable symptoms of herpes are blisters and painful sores on groin, on the buttocks, around the vagina (penis for men) and the anus. Herpes sores contain liquid filled with a virus that is very contagious to others and yourself. You must be careful and do not spread it to other parts of your body.
Before blisters and sores appear, a person feels sensation and itching in places of future outbreak. It should not be ignored and have to be treated properly. Other symptoms that usually go along with the most common symptoms of herpes include...
Is There A Herpes Cure?
Before we go any further, let me say that there is still no herpes cure approved by FDA. But don't give up just yet. Let me try to explain what a cure is and why there is no herpes cure today.
Basically a cure is the end of a medical condition; it's a medical treatment or surgical operation that can permanently remove the virus from the human body. In order for any kind of treatment, vaccine or drug to become a cure it has to get approved by FDA. This is a 3-phase process which requires a potential cure to show better results compared to other similar treatments. Otherwise, nothing can be called a cure.
Thrive With Herpes In 2016
We are calling the year of 2016 "THRIVE With Herpes" year. The main purpose of it is to combine our knowledge and share the experience of people who took charge of their lives and learnt to control herpes, and make this information available to those who have just got infected with HSV. In general, all herpes sufferers are going through the same issues, and that is why it is very helpful to join support groups where you can share your feelings and experience with others. We want to make a bigger effort and continue our search for an ultimate herpes cure 2016.
Yes, we all know that there is no FDA approved herpes cure. But how many people are actually doing experiments in their labs trying to develop a herpes vaccine? Not many. And how many people around the world are looking for a remedy that will finally help them get rid of herpes? Millions. There is definitely a way to live an outbreak free and happy life, but most people are not aware of that. And maybe there is even a way to eliminate herpes forever.
