The first outbreak is always the worst. I think everyone is different so you can't really compare to someone else because I've talked to people that said they had hardly no pain but like you,my first outbreak was very painful. You ned to see a Dr. and get some medicine asap.

Mine lasted about a week

My first, and so far only (knock on wood) outbreak lasted about 7 days, from the moment I discovered the first bump, to the point where I could sit, walk, and pee without pain. I got to the doctor about 2 days after noticing the first bump, so I started anti-virals early on. The first couple of days, I didn't really have any symptoms other than one or two bumps, but they quickly escalated. Days 4-6 were the worst for me.

There are lots of suggestions on here for dealing with the pain, such as using ice packs, pain relievers, taking baths, urinating in the tub or pouring water over yourself when you pee. Of course you can always take anti-virals and lysine to help reduce the time of the outbreak too.

Good luck! You'll make it through this. Hope you feel better soon!

Today is Christmas but...

tomorrow is Friday and Planned Parenthood should be open. Call them or just go there. Tell the you don't have any money and ask to see a doctor for free. Try to find out if you can see a doctor soon for a swab test and to get some meds for the pain. Meanwhile, use a pitcher of water when you pee, cover the sores with neosporin or other first aid cream or vaseline so that when you pee it won't sting as much. Hang in there, it will get better.

try putting tea bags on the sores, after they've cooled down. that helps to stop the itch.

      The prophylactic vaccine trial by GSK took 8 years and they were still not done with it.  That's because it takes time to see whether it works--it's a matter of many people having sex over time and that just takes a lot of time.   A shedding study is quicker, so therapeutic vaccines are quicker to test.  5-6 years I think.  Note that there was a study conducted last year that showed that there's a high correlation between shedding and outbreaks, suggesting that it might not even be necessary to track outbreaks, measuring shedding may be enough. It's unclear what they would be proving in case of a gene editing technique.  I think shedding would be a part of it.  But what else, if anything, I don't know. Anyway, it doesn't necessarily have to take a long time like the GSK prophylactic trials.

      I certainly hope this research continues. It all seems legit to me, but again, I'm no medical man (although I did play doctor a few times).

      This is good information to know. To go from continuous outbreaks to none all this time is encouraging. I wonder if after you've given it some time and this regimen proves itself, maybe you could title it, and type it for everyone to read. The more suggestions, the better! You mentioned you've suffered with Herpes I outbreaks. I have suffered with the type II, and I recently read that Lysine doesn't help with the type II. I don't know about that, because it really has helped me in years past. Anyway, by mentioning in your article that you have type I will help, because apparently something might work for type I that won't work for type II. I myself will get these products and add them to my daily garlic regimen, and perhaps I will be able to eat whatever I choose without triggering an outbreak. That's my big problem, wanting to eat the foods that trigger the outbreak!

      “..Meanwhile, the present study suggests LDXGFG as an alternative, inexpensive, and lasting-effect medicine for curing HSV2 infection caused genital herpes....” Anyone  seen any further research on this ?
