2nd ALREADY?!?!?

Recommended Posts

VanillaShake

I am so upset right now! it hasn't even been two weeks and ALREADY i'm getting my 2nd OB! I'm not taking Valtrex daily, my doc had just recommended I take it when I sense one coming on. I missed an entire week 2 weeks ago due to havng both Strep and the flu-like symptoms associated with my 1st OB. NOw I need to get to the dr to get another prescription for Valtrex, but I can't miss anymore time :( I can't believe two weeks and another one is coming. I can not live LIKE THIS!!

Hi Vanillashake, I'm sorry you are having another ob. Your body needs some time to build antibodies to help fight off outbreaks. The virus stays active in the begining and if this is in the same location as the first ob..it could be a continuation of the 1st.

It sounds like you got pretty sick. I would recommend taking immune boosting supplements and getting plenty of rest. Your body will fight this much better when it's as strong as possible.

I hope you feel better soon!

prescription

I would reccommend asking your doctor for a years script for the meds that way you have them if you need them. I agree you want to boost your immune system but I also believe the meds could be an outbreak shortner until you build up antibodies.....

I am all for 'all natural' but there is a time and place for modern medicine and the first year of outbreaks is THE TIME ...should you choose to go that route.

Wishing you well! You are not alone.

What kinds of symptoms are you having? I have had tingling and itching, but no sores, and I was diagnosed over 4 weeks ago. I am assuming this is just a continuation of the first OB and it is my body just trying to adjust to having this virus. It isn't nearly as bad as the first OB, so it is manageable. If you are having similar issues, it may be the same thing. I take lots of vitamins and Lysine and try to get plenty of sleep to keep my immune system healthy.

Thanks, all of you, for the support. Well all day yesterday I was really itchy in both of those spots, so I was checking it out last night and sure enough, 2 bumps started to appear. I'm calling the doc today to get a prescription. I'm trying to take an active approach in getting more rest, being healthier, etc. OH, and drinking less beer, just in case. It's hard for me to keep stress out of my life with some of the things I deal with at home, on a daily, but I am trying. Thanks, again, for all of your support. where can I get the Lysine and what exactly is it? I'm told Vitamin b1 and b12 also, is that true?

Hi, I got my 2nd ob 7 weeks after my 1st, I was so disappointed:mad:

The panel on the right gives information on Lysine, I take it, and I get it from either my local supermarket or health food shop. I also take Bvits to help with my immune system.

Hope you get some relief soon

You can get Lysine at a TON of places, like a local drug store, like CVS, Walgreens, or a vitamin store like GNC, or even places like Target or Wal-Mart.

I was diagnosed about 6 weeks ago and got the 2nd OB a month after the first. Thankfully, my doctor had given me a year's prescription for acycolvir just a few days before. I couldn't believe the 2nd came so fast and find myself dreading the next couple of weeks hoping I'm not going to have an OB once a month. Ugh!

I started taking Lysine in hopes of staving it off, but had to have surgery last week & got terribly sick from the pain meds so I had to quit taking the Lysine as I couldn't keep it down anyway. I'm even more concerned after the surgery because I know that trauma to the body in and of itself can trigger an OB.

I definitely recommend getting a year's prescription for your meds & to start taking the Lysine. My stomach has finally settled enough that I'm going to start mine again today.

I'm sorry you're already having another outbreak. If they continue this frequently you could consider taking valtrex every day for suppressive therapy.

      Who said it was hard to believe? It's possible that it causes some Alzheimer's but its also possible that herpes merely takes advantage of a brain weakened by Alzheimer's rather than being the causative agent. This theory is a well-documented by experts. The fact is that they have no proof either way. Links do not prove anything and are often proven incorrect as causative agents. To further complicate things, they fully expect that Alzheimer's may have several causes. Therefore, the best way to handle it at the moment may be to reverse the damage with a cure which would likely work for all causes or at least most. It may be easier to fix for now and then prevent later as they learn more about the various causes. They may be on the brink of that now.

      I have to agree. Only American companies are under the jurisdiction of the FDA but why do they extend their influence over all treatments and medicines globally cos they are corrupt yeah. Makes sense

      Dear Mike, I have access to academic resources. If you would like to have a look at the original report, you can tell me your email. Note that it's only for personal use of HSV cure research survey.

      In my opinion the FDA are the biggest scammers out there. From my side as a mother who had to see my Daughter be infected because of the terrible misrepresentation of Pharmaceutical medications (Valtrex) I think that the FDA has a lot to answer for.  They take their funding and bonus's to approve dangerous medications which have later turned out to be deadly.  They approve and endorse sugar with no limitation or regulation although it's the biggest cause of heart disease, diabetes and obesity.  All because they are part of the bigger business scams out there to keep the population dependent on antivirals for life.  I know I would much rather a natural solution for my Daughter than the toxic medications the FDA endorse.
