The blister that won't go away

Recommended Posts


I have had genital herpes for 4 years now and am experiencing the most stubborn OB since my first one. I have had one blister now for over a week and have been taking 1500 mg of Valtrex and it is refusing to disappear. It is not really painful, just annoying. My lymph node is swollen on the same side as the OB. Any suggestions? I have read something in the past about applying acetone (nail polish remover) topically may help??? Seems dangerous? Any input would be helpful.

I'm not sure about nail polish remover, but I have heard a lot about Oil of Oregano helping. It burns though, so I've seen it recommended to mix it with a little aloe and apply it, unless you're prepared for the burn. :) Also, Lysine supplements are supposed to help it heal. :) Good luck!

      What was the comment? I don't see it on their official Facebook Given the recent news that Crispr can result in all sorts of erroneous cuts when double strand breaks are involved, I'm surprised to hear they still believe they will run trials in a few months. The FDA recently blocked ex vivo crispr trials, I can't imagine them letting in vivo trials move forward given the recent reports

      How do you get in touch with a Moderator for this site? I am being bullied, unbelievably, on a support site.  I can't just let it go because it is happening to other people too.

      For the last time, my name is not Jay.  My name is Amy.  I am not telling you my last name.  I am a woman, not a man.  I've reported all of your rude comments to me and asked an Admin to prove to you that I am not Jay.  You are really pissing me off.  I'm pretty sure Spinky is in the same group on FB for meningitis and he can vouch for me.  Now get a life and leave me alone!!!!

      Ronald, could you please stop with the capital letters; it's annoying to read.
