Hi Sarah, I have had this virus for a while and never experienced numbness. I think we can agree that there is no normal when it comes to this virus b/c it affects everyone differently. If you are really uncomfortable, maybe you should see a doctor just to check things out.
Im on day 26 with this and looks the same to me, the base doesnt look to be red but the little blisters remain, ive been using acyclivir for over a week too.. it says to use it three times a day but i just use it once a day and put a bandade over it, maybe that could be it... i forget on my first and only outbrrak (on lip) but i think it took a long time
Gaba helped me 600mg/day...stopped due to side effects (deep rooted acne) but am starting up on 300/day.
Lauricidin does seem to help some maybe 20-30%. Advil and Aleve don't touch the pain/irritation.
Keep us informed Lexy
THANK YOU BEYONCE!!! Now in December will be a year and it's just been a roller coaster full of emotions for me. You not only educated me but brought tears of joy and hope. I have not been able to build courage and open up to ANYONE to talk about my condition. I just found this forum a few days and decided to write today. My case it that I get really extra itchy before my period and I think I'm gonna have an OB. I've been moody lately and I think this is not helping me. I've been taking Valtrex daily and started lysine. I'm definitely trying the free oil today. Anyway, I want you to know that I value all your information specially knowing that the chances of transmitting H to my partner is minimal. I didn't know this. I just have been avoiding sex as much as possible and this has been hurting my relationship. After reading your post I have high hope that my life will sooner rather than later be back to normal XOXO
