47 Days Post Resolve

I had a really good day today. I had no tingles today... crossing my fingers, my toes, my ummmm well I cannot cross that. I just need a week of no tingles and I will be very confident that Resolve worked for me.

Nothing else to report today... a very great day for me!!!

I want to answer a question that someone asked me:

Fighter, when you say you have the tingles, do they feel like the itchies? To me they are the same. I am just finishing up the resolve and am doing the extended treatment (still getting breakouts). Let me know. Thanks

My tingles do not feel like the itchies. When I was first infected, I got something that looked like a boil down below. Once the boil went away, I always had a tingle right where the boil was. That spot, well there were actually two boils, so those spots have always had a "constant" tingle. I know that some people state that the tingle comes and goes. Unfortunately, mine were constant. I never had any sores or bumps or anything, just a tingle on that spot. Sometimes the tingle would feel a little burny too.

Since this past Saturday, my tingle went from a constant tingle, to an off and on tingle. Like I said many posts ago, the tingle is very mild and does not affect me in any way. It is just extremely annoying. Today was my first FULL day of no tingles.

I do want to point out something... let me emphasize that I am not a doctor, so this is just my thought. I really believe that after finishing Resolve, you will experience mild symptoms. This is the dead virus clearing your body. (Goodness I sound like Resolve LOL) Try to not focus on the tingles because it will stress you out. Also, drink plenty of water. A tip that I just discovered is to get in the tub and run cold water on your tingly area. I have been doing this the past few days and it really seems to help. I try to not wear panties, unless I am going to work. I also poured ACV in a warm shallow bath and sat in it for 15 minutes. I read on some forum about ACV, so I figured I would give it a shot. If you are still getting sores and bumps, you may need an extension. I do believe that the tingles are clearing symptoms that are "suppose" to go away during the 90 day waiting period. (Crossing My Fingers)

I hope this answers your question. Good luck with Step 3... the poo-poo stage!!!
