Hi! It's different for everyone. Maintain a healthy diet (no chocolate or nuts), exercise, no/little alcohol, and please find a way to settle your mind! The meds may need adjusting, or you may have a strain resistant to anti-virals.
I've been diagnosed with hsv2 for a little over a month now and I've had two to three outbreaks so far. Does it get better after a few weeks or months on the medication?? I always feel like I'm a mess down there and I'm trying so badly to be positive and let it pass. Also my lymph nodes on that region always flare up and at least one is flared at all times even when the outbreak subsides , is that normal or is my medication not working?
