Hi Doc,

I am HIV+, CD4 count is 1014 37%, and VL is undetectable. I was just diagnosed positive for HSV-2. The doctor is recommending valtrax, yet I found this website that claims that their herbal mix would cure the HSV. Here is the link. Do you think this is valid and worth the money or a bunch of nonsense?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

There is no cure, herbal or otherwise, for herpes virus infection. The site and it's products are bunk.


Drinking aloe vera
stribild miss dose for the first time and food?
