Okay, so I've been taking lysine almost everyday, as a preventative. So now im reading that you should only take it when you think an outbreak is near/about to come out.

Which is it about Lysine?

Okay, Ive been hearing about Dymaclear and h-Balm.. Anyone tried any of these? How have they worked. I need something in stock just in case or for the next one.

I haven't tried the other things.. I've only taken the lysine in high doses just at the start of an OB...

Other than than it wouldn't hurt to take a lesser amount b/c your body doesn't produce it naturally..

It is to my understanding that for optimal effectiveness the dosage should be 1500 mg.

      Any advice on on how i can change the way she thinks of her insecurities in the event I ever see her again or hang out with her or do you guys think that it's better too just walk away. The truth is though i never met another girl like her before and she was fine with me having herpes i could tell by the she reacted too it . How do you change the way someone views them self that has low self esteem.

      Note @Asr624 that an IgM result does not confirm a herpes diagnosis. Was the rash swabbed as well?

      Yes it's entirely possible that he didn't know and just now gave it to you. I've been with my husband almost 19 years and he was recently tested and is still negative. It's still possible of course that I could give it to him at any point. Sounds like you have a strong marriage and there is no reason this needs to be an issue other than a minor annoyance. I have 2 healthy children and have had no related medical issues due to HSV.

      I have been with him and didn’t tell him and now I can’t tell him because I know it would ruin any chance of reconciliation. I don’t want to live with this and I don’t want to live without him

      I am so sorry that happened to you. No one deserves that. Praying for you.
