So since my first outbreak back in beginning of September, since it has healed I have been hyper aware of every little damn itch on my body. Had an ingrown hair on a totally different area than the first outbreak and could not stop convincing myself it was an ob until I saw the little hair finally break through.
Does anyone have any advice on when/how you calmed down with every little thing your body does, it's been driving me nuts waiting for a second outbreak to come and I am thankful that it hasn't happened but my mind is driving me insane.
@Guy12 , no, I haven't tried those. I have considered it, but am concerned about side effects. Also, I don't even know what type of doctor to seek out for a presription for one of these. I don't currently have a doctor treating me for HSV. I have a stockpile of acyclovir for now from an old prescription when I lived in a different state and I haven't yet found a new doctor in my new state because I haven't needed to. I absolutely dread the process in place to get medical treatment in this country: first find a doctor in my insurance network, then wait 2 weeks for an appointment, then get referred by that doctor to a specialist in my network, then hope that the specialist gets everything right.
Do you use either of these?
