The itching and pain is unbearable

Recommended Posts

Ill be cool

This OB has lasted ONE week so far and is the most painful OB i can EVER remember having (and ive dealt with it for over 7 years).

I hardly ever get depressed about them or let them bother me but this past week has really knocked me:( Its a constant reminder about all those years ago:(:(

The itching lasts for ages whereby i end up needing to sratch although i know it doesnt help. I think its causing to the length of time aswell. I think its speading too, its now on my labia aswell as inside.

Once an OB has started what do you do to help speed up with the OB? Right now all i want to do is cry as i feel it will never end. someone please help with any advice. Thanks.

Hi There,

I find that along with meds a salt bath everyday, two or three if you have the time really eases the pain and speeds recovery..

Hope this helps.

Good luck...

Im starting to believe the itching came from a yeast infection from the antibiotics ive recently been taking.

Its all calmed down now, brought something for the thrush and taking my pills as usual.

Thanks for those who responded.

Take more than 2000mg

I have been, ive been taking acivicyour (sp) and lynsine 2000mg per day.

I would take 2000mg 3 times a day, studies show that increased dosages up to 8000mg a day can decrease the time and severity of OB's. Anything over 8000mg has not shown any significant/positive effects.

Just google L-lysine and herpes. Go on Wikipedia and search herpes lots of helpful stuff on there also.

      Almost certainly that is not herpes. There are a number of diseases that can cause your symptoms, not all of them infectious. If you haven't done so already, go see a doctor as soon as you can.

      Seems likely that you had an asymptomatic infection and now you are having very mild recurrences. Asymptomatic infection is by far the most common case, in particular for HSV1 positive people. It could be a genital reinfection with HSV1, unlikely, or most likely a new HSV2 infection, there is no way to tell without a blood test. It's been long enough for an IGG test but don't bother testing for HSV1, you can already assume you are positive and have been for most of your life. I don't know about how it is where you live, but where I live I don't need to ask any doctor to get tested, I can just go into a clinical lab and order the test for €40. If your test returns negative for HSV2, don't worry about putting her at any risk regarding HSV1, she will have the same risk from anyone else. Acyclovir cream won't do any good, you should stop it (it increases the risk of getting an acyclovir resistant strain). Otherwise, your recurrences are so mild and far apart that it isn't worth it to do any treatment for now, so don't be scared about your health, chances are it'll get better with time. AND ALWAYS WEAR A CONDOM

      Doing a little research, it seems that Amenamevir  and Pritelivir are definitely not chemically identical. How similar are these drugs really?

      I have been working out regularly after being diagnosed in may with ghsv1.  First 3 weeks were awful but haven’t had any OB, symptoms at all since.  I also haven’t been eating as healthy as I should be.  Feel like I never had it. Hope it stays this way.  I think working out helps.  Just my view so far.

      Based on current HIV treatment, I would imagine they will create a one-pill combo of pritelivir and valtrex and sell it as a daily pill. But once a week pritelivir + valtrex might also work in the meantime.
