Pills for the HSV or pills for the depression? Either way, you need to see a doctor and get a prescription. Valtrex takes some time to work, especially on a first outbreak, it will only make it heal faster (say two weeks instead of three, for example)

The symptoms for HIV and HSV are very different but obviously it can't hurt to get it checked but know that the relative infection rate for HIV is fairly small.

You need to convey all these concerns to a doctor about the blood and see what he or she says.

It gets better!!!

I was diagnosed before christmas and omg it hurt so bad I could barely sit. When found out that I had HSV-1 I was so upset and hurt I didn't know what to do. I cried for a really long time and then it just turned into anger..and then I realized I couldn't change anything about the fact that I had it, all you can do is learn about it and see what you can do to deal with issue. In time you will feel better again...it just takes time...and you can always find someone to talk to. This a good place..and I found support that I thought would never happen. I hope you feel better...and don't give up your better then the virus.

I also had to go on antidepressants after being diagnosed with HSV2. And i have always been very upbeat and positive individual.

Even though im not to keen on the idea, many people suggested to just take them for a lil bit, just to take the edge off and help the anxiety i was feeling. And i must admit it has helped, and now i am also going to therapy, so hopefully, i will be off the meds soon.

So if you feel you are feeling really down and need a lil help dont feel ashamed to speak to your dr about it.

I was there. its not a big deal just a skin condition and a minor irritation. after that first outbreak it will get a lot better. As well you may consider avoiding the antivirals after you get over this OB and let your body build up antibodies. Also be active, if you work out it will both keep your immune system in check and help with the depression. I may also suggest takeing Lysine its a amino acid that helps your body heal.

if you have anymore questions feel free to ask away.

      Do you shop at Amazon.com? Next time you shop, you can also automatically donate a portion of the proceeds to the Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society.  This Society organizes the symposium on latency of herpes viruses.  It was here that Keith Jerome announced that he had edited almost 20%-30% of latent HSV in mice last year. (http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/medicalschool/departments/neurology/CALS/Documents/2018 CALS abstracts.pdf) You have to go through smile.amazon.com to set up ongoing donations whenever you shop through smile.amazon.com. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Yes, I understand that I must always start at smile.amazon.com to support Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society.

      WOW, it's true.  So cool!  Thanks for sharing. In my view, for the time being, we can just help support the Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society, rather than asking Fred Hutch to set something up through Amazon.   Here is an important message though, you have to go through smile.amazon.com to do the donation.
