Sexually transmitted infections or illnesses are not a subject that many like to discuss or admit to having. It can be embarrassing, especially before treatment takes place. Fortunately, for those who suffer from Herpes, there is a treatment available, with new research being done every day to produce more. One of the most recent studies has found success in herpes treatment through a drug commonly used for issues of the heart.
The new study was concluded by Dr. Sankar Swaminathan, at the University of Utah School of Medicine, and it found Spironolactone to be especially effective on blocking the virus. Medical News Today reports; “The current drugs work by preventing a virus from replicating DNA, thus blocking a middle step of the viral infection cycle. Spironolactone (SPR), like existing drugs, was found to block a key step in viral infection that features in all herpes viruses, but a different step than the one targeted by current drugs. It prevented replication of the virus in cells by blocking the so-called SM protein, needed for a late step in the infection cycle.”
This kind of a find is phenomenal considering the lack of choice in available herpes treatments today. While there are varying medications on the market, most use the same technology to treat the virus.
A known 50 million, plus, residents of the United States alone, have herpes today. The numbers seem to rise each year, with the age of individuals obtaining the virus becoming younger and younger. In the past, it was most common in adults, but with the sexual activity of the typical teenager increasing, the number of teens with herpes is also increasing.
Genital herpes is a contagious viral infection which can be passed orally or sexually. It effects the genitals and anal region of the individual who has contracted it. Once obtained, herpes is a lifelong issue, with no known cure to date. Those who contract the illness are twice as likely to become HIV positive when in contact with HIV.
Herpes Signs and Symptoms
Herpes first appears in the form of itching or burning sores and bumps. A rash or blisters around the genitals is a cue that it is time to make an appointment with your family doctor. Other symptoms include nausea, fatigue, fever, headache, soreness in muscles, and itching or burning during urination. Dred.com writes; “Not everyone suffers the same symptoms of genital herpes – and some people infected with the virus may never have a single attack. However, it is still possible for them to infect other people. The virus is most likely to be transmitted when it is active, while blisters are present. The beginning and the end of an outbreak, before the blisters turn to scabs, are the times during which the virus is most contagious.”
While genital herpes is most common, and shows the most prominent physical symptoms, it is also possible to get herpes in the mouth, on the tongue, or on the lips.
The new research proves that there will soon be more available options for the treatment of herpes on the market, but in the meantime there are a few medications which your doctor will prescribe to treat the infection and its symptoms. Acyclovir (Zovirax), Valacyclovir (Valtrex), and Famciclovir (Famvir), are the go to drug for doctors treating herpes. These are taken in tablet form, and require a prescription to be obtained.
Some individuals inquire about topical treatments to help ease the itching the burning associated with the external symptoms. Unfortunately, these treatments offer far less in terms of results, and are unable to manage the virus, in the way that the pills do.
When the symptoms are first noticed, your doctor may start you off on a specialized treatment to manage discomfort and offer some control over the bumps and rash. This generally lasts for a week to a week and a half, before the regular treatment takes place. When regular treatments commence, your doctor will advise you on how and when to take the medication. WebMD writes; “Your doctor may prescribe an antiviral drug for you to keep on hand in case you have another flare-up; this is called intermittent therapy. You can take the pills for two to five days as soon as you notice sores or when you feel an outbreak coming on. Sores will heal and disappear on their own, but taking the drugs can make the symptoms less severe and make them go away faster.”
Acyclovir, and the other mentioned drugs, work to slow the spread and ease the symptoms associated with herpes, but they do not work to prevent spreading of herpes during a breakout. Drugs.com advises; “Herpes infections are contagious and you can infect other people, even while you are being treated with acyclovir. Avoid letting infected areas come into contact with other people. Avoid touching an infected area and then touching your eyes. Wash your hands frequently to prevent passing the infection to others.”
If you are going to be sexually active, even when you are not experiencing an outbreak, it is important to use a condom, and to let your partner know about the condition before becoming intimate. If properly handled, those who suffer from herpes can still lead perfectly normal lives, and enjoy intercourse with partners without the fear of spreading the virus.
Getting The Help You Need
If you are suffering from herpes, or have noticed some of the symptoms involved in the infection, you should consult a physician immediately. The use of Spironolactone has not yet been approved for use on herpes as an individual infection, and should not be taken to treat the virus unless directed to do so by a doctor. Using the medication for heart failure will not guarantee treatment of herpes.
Before choosing a herpes medication, do some research to determine which is the most cost effective and beneficial for you in your stage of the virus. Your doctor can help you narrow down the correct variation of drug, and administer you the prescription necessary to obtain it.
