Coachella Music Festival coincides with herpes spike

From TMZ: There was an unwanted guest running amok at Coachella this year … herpes.

According to honchos at HerpAlert — an online diagnosis and treatment website for the STD — there’s been a huge spike in folks looking to get treated for herpes in the communities surrounding the famous music festival.

HerpAlert’s been in business for 2 years now, with doctors issuing prescriptions to pharmacies after people submit photos of their, umm … situation, for medical pros to review. The turnaround time is blazing fast, it only takes about 2 hours.

We’re told the site has seen a massive surge in folks seeking prescriptions for herpes since Day 1 at Coachella. A whopping 1,105 cases have been reported in Indio, Palm Desert and Coachella Valley — and also L.A., Orange and San Diego counties where most of the concertgoers live.

HerpAlert tells us they typically handle 12 cases a day in Southern Cali … but during the first 2 days of Coachella, the site serviced almost 250 patients!!! The biggest previous spike was during Oscars weekend 2018, when they got a mere 60 cases a day.

Bottom line … what happens in Coachella might stay with you. For life.

Just when gonorrhea and other STDs (and other bugs) are increasingly resistant to antibiotics.

Ma’am,

I would normally never reach out like this, but my wife sent me a story today that I would love to get your take on. It is truly unbelievable how far our culture has fallen.
Thanks so much,

Antibiotics will have no effect on herpes, because it’s a virus, not bacteria. Herpes Simplex 1 is just another name for a cold sore. I get outbreaks every so often, and sometimes years have passed between outbreaks. For me, I break out when my body temperature gets hot from hard work or play, or hot weather, and I don’t get enough cold liquids around my mouth or inside me. I have to be especially careful when I shower, because HSV1 can easily become HSV2 (what they came down with at Choachella), the genital version, and by far the worse one… Read more »

The majority of humans harbor one strain or another of herpes virus. They are almost ubiquitous and they do lie dormant in CS fluid I believe. When your immune system is suppressed, by high stress for instance, the virus will become active. That’s why people get cold sores right before important job interviews

There’s a message there. 😀

One problem is the treatment of viral infections like herpes with antibiotics. Doctors routinely prescribe AB’s for other viral infections as well, colds and flu. They have no effect on viruses; you can’t kill a virus because it’s not technically alive. Doctors should be aware of this but they will tell you they are only doing what the patient wants. Nevertheless repeated courses of AB’s cause endogenous microflora to develop resistance which is then passed on to pathogenic bacteria. So we get conditions like MRSA

Hey, that’s better than a “T” shirt, or a tattoo! You never know where that thing’s been. You could get hoof and mouth disease.

HERPES CURE Natural herbs have cured so many illness that drugs and injection cannot cure.

I was diagnosed with herpes for the past 9 months but Dr.OOSA cured me with his herbs and i referred my aunt and her husband to him immediately because they were both suffering… Read more »
