Increased frequency of OBs

Recommended Posts

3junebugs

I have had herpes for over seven years. I had initially a terrible out break that was both in my lower region and my face.

Over the years my out breaks significantly reduced. I even went on to have two more children without any complications.

But since May of this year I haves been plauged with frequent genital ob that have been occuring about every six weeks and then a chronic out break on my face on my upper lip for over seven months. I go maybe a day or two tops before my lips start to itch and then shed again. :(

Anyone else have this were years later you have an increase of outbreaks?

I am on 1gm of valtrex daily which has helped some but they just keep coming back. I have removed caffiene from my diet an significantly reduced my chocolate and 'oat' foods from my diet. I have even stopped taking my antidepressant to see if that was contributing to my ob.

My doc pretty much says all I can do is the valtex and live with it :( but as you can imagine, this is putting a huge strain on my marriage. My husband is not infected.

Any other suggestions? Also, should I look for a new doctor?

I'm sorry to hear this. Geez, you'd like to believe that after years of gradually dissipating outbreaks, that you're doing ok. And then this happens. Well let's see...when was the last time you've had a full physical exam and been checked for all STD's including HIV? I would do so if I were you. There may be something that is suppressing your immune system which usually kicks in the keep your outbreaks at a minimum. I would also get another type blood test done because maybe you've gotten a second strain of HSV (dunno which you already have between HSV1 or 2). Let us know how all this goes.

I have been checked for ghonerrea and clamydia recently. HIV is very unlikely. I have been pretty stressed lately. But my life has ALWAYS been. I would say that I am a lot better now so that's why this is so frustrating.

I have been very tired lately though. I have had to take daily naps recently but that could just be from feeling depressed over this.

Sorry to hear that. My outbreaks decreased over time. Recently I have had an increase, but I know stress is a trigger for me.

      It's not clear.  The experiments in which they inactivated 2-4% latent HSV in mice, was definitely in living mice. The research paper is very clear about that.  It appears that in May 2018, they also reported nearly 20-30% inactivation of latent HSV in living mice. It's not clear what the 90% is referring to, whether in living mice or some artificial latency model using mice sells in vitro.  I really hope that it was in living mice.  That would make sense, since the earlier experiments were in living mice.  But in any case, as you mentioned, this research is progressing very well. Let's continue to try to raise money for it.
