Does Valtrex make it worse? Anyone?


Recommended Posts

:?: OK, so I've never been actually diagnosed with herpes. I've been tested (swab) and its been negative, but I know something wrong because these bumps keep coming back. The last time I was tested, the doctor gave me a prescription for Valtrex, and I tried it, but immediately my symptoms got worse! I only had one bump initially, took the Valtrex and got 2 more! Plus now I notice some tiny white pimples on my upper lip that feel hot. Can Valtrex give you herpes? Can it make latent herpes comes out to the surface? Is this one of those drugs where it gets worse first before it gets better. If anyone has had any of these experiences with this drug, please contact me. I don't want to take it anymore, and I don't why a doctor would give me such a crazy drug without a postive diagnosis. I think this a bad drug, or maybe it has bad efects on people who are negative? Anyone had this problem? :?: Thanks.

Valtrex makes it worse!

I have had suspesion that I might have genital herpes for over 7 months now. All blood tests have been negative for HSV-2, but positive for HSV-1. I have only had two times where one tiny bump appeared on the shaft of my penis. The first time being 2 1/2 months ago, and the second time being 16 days ago. The bump was tested 16 days ago with a swab test which came up negative but Valtrex was still perscirbed just in case for a three day period. Once that bump went away another one appeared, then a couples day later another one appeared, and now two days ago another one appeared along with roughly 15 tiny white bumps all over the shaft.

This stuff is suddenly raging inside of me and the only thing that changed was the introduction of Valtrex to by system.

As a side note, I have been in a monogamous relationship over the past year.

      Yes, but every married person who I found out about that has this waited 6-8 months into the relationship to disclose it. But maybe you're right. If I had told her 6-7 months in, she'd still have Googled it and flipped out, and maybe it would have been harder then. I don't know. I don't see myself going through this level of pain and rejection so easily next time. I really don't. I'm taking the meds. I use protection. It's been almost a decade since I've had it so I'm not worried about shedding or passing it on so easily. British studies confirm that the first 2 years are the most contagious and we're passed that. I'm just over this. I've never been in so much emotional pain in my life.

      Is this herpes? I can’t find any pics that match this exactly and my symptoms don’t really match. I don’t have really any of the typical herpes symptoms other than pictured, so I figured it could be friction as I have recently been having a lot of sex with a new partner. Way more than normal. Started having unprotected sex about 3 - 4 weeks ago. These symptoms only started about 3-4 days ago. Felt burning in some areas and only some very few tiny red areas/spots appeared. Almost shiny in appearance. Seems to settle very quickly. They were only present for a day or so. Also had some very mild irritation after I pee but not during. This spot has 2 small red lumps that are now dry around the outside. It’s like it’s been rubbed off and the skin is dry and shiny underneath. It doesn’t seem to be lesion. There was no puss or any leakage, nor was the skin ever red under them. They also got better within a day or so. I still have red spots around but they are very small and not bunched together and some general discomfort but I feel it’s because I’ve touched it so much! Stressing a bit!  my research tells me friction burn/blister , Fungal ,herpes a bit of it all! I have no idea! Please help! Thanks in advance.

      I’m going to force him to get tested ! Thanks for your help !

      @EssenceL25 there really isn't a question mark around the source, it's your latest partner. The median time from infection to an outbreak of lesions upon initial infection is 4 days.  The only thing that isn't certain is the type I suggest.
