In theory, if there was a "cure" for Herpes and an individual took it, what scientific test is available to prove the individual can no longer transmit the virus? Would Herpes antibodies eventually go away?
I suppose it depends on what the cure did. Would it eradicate it completely from your system killing the virus. Then I am sure antibodies would go away. Or would it make it lay dormant forever? Then I feel it wouldn't be transmittable but you would still be creating antibodies. I am no where near a doctor. Nor do I have any idea what I am talking about lol But that is my guess. Not to sure what the others would say.
