List of Herpes Support Groups and Herpes Social Groups Herpes Support Groups and Herpes Social Groups exist in most major cities in the USA, Canada, worldwide and online, and we list most of them below. Herpes support groups are sometimes called “HELP” support groups, and are occasionally affiliated with ASHA, the American Social Health Association. Herpes social groups often use terms like “Friends” as in “” (SF Bay Area) or “H2O” as in “DC H2O” or “H Club” or “H Friends”.
A lot of regional herpes groups can be found on , Facebook (see below), Yahoo Groups, and other websites and social media platforms. Many local herpes groups function as both a Herpes Support Group and a Herpes Social Group. There are also many “secret” (hidden) herpes support groups and herpes social groups on Facebook that have hundreds or thousands of members, but cannot be found by doing a search and require knowing the right person who can “add” you. If you cannot find your local herpes social group or herpes support group on the list below – never fear!
There may be a *secret* Facebook group in your area. View the list below, then follow the instructions to join your local herpes group. Herpes Privacy Tips Most of us are concerned about privacy online and do not want our sensitive, personal information to be seen by the rest of the world. If you want to take extra precautions to keep your herpes status private online, we recommend the following: – Create a brand new email account and username on Gmail or Yahoo that does not use your real name or any other words that too closely identify who you are.
For instance, if your real name is “Kate Frisbatch” from Los Angeles, you might create a new email account such as “* and your username might be “K818 Angel”. – Use this new email address and username *exclusively* for your herpes-related online activities. Do NOT share this email address with any of your non-herpes friends. Do NOT use this email address to do anything else except to sign up for herpes groups, herpes dating services, and herpes social media sites (including Facebook).
– If you join any herpes groups on social media (such as Meetup, Facebook, Yahoo, or other community sites), do NOT accept friend requests from anyone you haven’t already met, except for group admins/moderators. While most people who join herpes groups are nice, normal people, there are always a few folks out there who are trolling for dates/sex, or who send you a message recommending a herpes site, group, product or dating service for which they may receive a commission or have another motive for getting you to join.
If anyone like this contacts you, please report this immediately to your group admins or at this site. We will tell you whether or not the person or what they are recommending is legitimate. ********** Worldwide List of Herpes Support Groups and Social Groups National Herpes Hotline: (919) 361-8488 (Note: This is now a PAID service.)

For some unknown reasons, this site failed to gather enough active members. Herpes, whilst not generally being considered a particularly dangerous condition, is still one of the worst conditions that people can suffer from. The primary reason for this is because it can make sufferers feel particularly self-conscious, and a little embarrassed in the process. Genital herpes is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases in the world, and what’s more, it can be very difficult to get rid of.
The herpes virus itself can potentially lie dormant in an individual’s immune system for all of their life, and can sporadically cause cold sores and blisters which are not particularly attractive to look at. The good news however, is that if you are affected by herpes, you can treat the condition naturally, and here’s a look at how. Take a warm bath – As if you needed an excuse to take a warm bath, you now have one.
There isn’t much that a warm bath cannot help cure. Herpes can be very itchy and painful, especially around the genitals, which is why taking a warm bath is so ideal. By soaking in the warm water, the pain associated with the blisters and cold sores associated with herpes will begin to subside. It is however, important to thoroughly dry off when you get out of the bath, as moisture can exasperate the condition.
Increase lysine consumption – Lysine is an amino acid that is very beneficial for the body for a number of reasons, including those relating to the treatment of herpes. L-lysine has been scientifically proven to help prevent the herpes virus from replicating and spreading, helping you to keep the condition and the symptoms under control. You can purchase amino acid supplements, though ideally the L-lysine itself should come from whole foods. Legumes, fish, seafood, vegetables, and poultry are all great sources of the amino acid.
Baking Soda – Baking Soda works wonders for a whole variety of different reasons, and yes, that does include the treatment of herpes. You see, baking soda works very well for helping to treat the painful cold sores associated with herpes. The baking soda works so well because it helps to keep the affected area nice and dry. The dryer the affected area, the quicker the healing time, plus the harder it will be for the herpes virus to spread and thrive in dry conditions. Simply apply a small amount to the sores and let the soda get to work on drying them out.
Aloe Vera gel – Aloe Vera is one of the most popular plants in the holistic healing world, and has been used for centuries due to its numerous healing properties. Aloe Vera contains active plant-based compounds which speed up the healing processes of the body, and help reduce inflammation and painful itching associated with a herpes outbreak.
Aloe vera gel is especially beneficial here. Simply apply a generous amount of gel to the affected area, leave it to soak in and dry, and that is pretty much it. Apply daily for several days until you are satisfied that the herpes is gone, or is showing signs of clearing up.
Q: I have genital HSV-2. My girl friend thought she had HSV-2 but recently discovered through bloodworm that she’s actually hsv1. We are wondering the possibility for us to getting the other version, including genital contact, genital to oral contact, and oral to oral contact. There is so much information online I can find, it’s very confusing to us.
Can you clarify? A: The most effective way to be diagnosed with herpes is for a doctor to see active outbreaks. A blood test doesn’t determine if the virus is oral or genital herpes.
The herpes blood test only detects the herpes antibodies, rather than the actual virus. It’s a proven fact that 80% of sexually active adults carry the HSV-1 antibodies.
Your partner may have genital HSV-1, there is no way of confirming that. Unless a swab sample is taken from an active herpes sores. If your partner actual has genital HSV-1, it’s possible for you to catch genital HSV-1.
It’s possible for your partner to catch genital HSV-2. We know that HSV-1 is oral herpes 90-95% of all HSV-1 cases. HSV-2 is much more likely to spread by having sexual intercourse. Keep in mind genital herpes could spread to a partner orally though oral sex.
If you have genital HSV-2, your partner could catch the virus by performing oral sex on you. In this particular situation your partner could come in direct oral contact with HSV-2. Just remember herpes is spread by coming in direct oral, anal or vaginal contact with the virus.
