Hello, any1 out there?!

Recommended Posts



I've bn diagnosed about 7 months ago and have frequent outbreaks. I get them atleast once a month. I have been using Famvir and it works but up until I have another 1. I ordered myself the Lysine, Combined Formula supplements. But I've tryed other types of Lysine and they did n't work. I've only bn using this 1 for 2 days.Does it work coz even though I'm using it, it's really itchy down there but I don't see any outbreak. Please advise. I need something that works coz my husband and I are trying to have a baby and this herpes is not helping!:mad:

I have heard many people say Lysine helps

Also look into Acyclovir. Walmart has it for $4 for a 90 day prescription.

Whenever I am dating someone I take 1000mg of Lysine and 400mg of Acyclovir. I have dated many non h women without passing it along

Good luck!

thanx 4 yo response it meant a lot

:pThanx 4 yo response. Can u blieve I had another outbreak but the Lysine actually does work coz it stopped it be4 it got far. I just felt the symptoms coming then I increased my intake and it worked even better than fimvir coz it just stopped. Unfortunately I leave in South Africa and u only get Acyclovir with a prescription so there is that embarassment of standing behind the counter or going to the dr and asking for a prescription & asked my Gynaecologist and Dr they just told me there is no cure then I did my own research thats when I found this site and other ways of treating this deseases. Have a greatday!

      Give it a try and report back to us. It's pretty safe vaccine approved by the FDA.

      Have you tried changing your GP surgery? A decent doctor must surely realise that having back to back outbreaks warrants long term suppressive medication.  Aciclovir is available at very low cost to the NHS. I'd be firm with your doctor in what you'd like to do and make it clear you are educated on the relevant issues.  Don't be ashamed to talk to your GP. It is confidential.  FYI - walk in sexual health clinics (separate health record) are only as allowed to dispense a limited amount on the basis of episodic treatments.

      I agree, herpes doesn’t show up as discrete little dots like your pic.

      @Kurdt01Thank you! Very validating! And yes many doctors are so uninformed and misinformed it's incredibly frustrating.  ur right in multiple forums I've seen commenters invalidate someone's experience with herpes which is so weird. There's a wealth of experiences similar to both of ours but people put their hands to their ears and drill home "herpes is just a minor rash outbreak, nothing more."

      I got the zinc acetate from an pharmacy in my town, they can't sell reagents but I know the pharmacist. I cost me about 10 € a 50 gr bottle, enough for a decade at the current rate of consumtion. Otherwise it is quite easy to get, you can buy it from a laboratory or even in ebay. I apply the treatment on my glans about 2-3 times a week, I've never had any problem or adverse effect so far.
