To Your Good Health: No cure or vaccine for herpes virus | The ...

Q: When I learned I have herpes simplex type 2, I was distressed. I wonder how close we are to having a vaccine for it -- and would a vaccine cure the virus? Do medicines such as acyclovir and Valtrex help stop recurring outbreaks? A: Herpes simplex virus type 1 and herpes virus type 2 are lifelong infections. Full Story

How long can the herpes virus Type 2 lie dormant, and if so can it be as long as 15 years?

I would suppose so, Chicken Pox is in the Herpes family and it can be 50 years later as shingles.

i read on internet that hsv-zero is effective for herpes. it says that it can both treat and to prevent herpes outbreaks.

yes, i heard about it from my cousin. he says it works. i agree that there's no (or there is but takes long time) vaccine for curing herpes, but there are treatment to at least reduce the symptoms. my cousin has tried everything. then he tried HSV-zero and he said he's better now.

I have ordered prescription drugs (without a prescription) online from http://inhousegeneric.info about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.

Shingles occurs when the virus that causes chickenpox starts up again in your body. After you get better from chickenpox, the virus "sleeps" in your nerve roots.
