i'm not on meds. its been there for three months (at least) but is just now starting to get bothersome. i was holding out on getting tested becausei was hoping it was something else. now i feel like there is no denying it. is there anything i could do to make it calm down without getting put on meds. my outbreak has not been bad enough to need to go to the doctor for emergency help.

Its possible - but it is probably not in one place all the time - right? it moves around - different places? if so then its likely to be a serial of OB's - maybe you have 3-4 OB's going - from one to another....get meds and cream to fight it.....if you take and use meds it should stop quicker than 3 months....did you take meds?

the majority of the bumps have stayed in the same area. like two new ones came up maybe a week ago. i'm in college so i don't have the best diet but nothing too strange. i hate this crap i just want it to go away so i can feel normal. i'm embarrassed to go to the doctor. also how much does the cheapest medicine cost? i don't want to tell my parents about this but they pay for the insurance... i just don't really know what to do.

i actually take lysine supplements (8 dollars a bottle at cvs) and red marine algea supplements (13 dollars at vitamin shoppe), seems to help..i graduated college and now have no insurance..plus valtrex is like 130 dollars, thats insane

Not true in my personal experience. I have had OB's for 3 months. Once it heals I get one again 1-4 days later in the exact same spot. Sucks, def stress related. I have HSV/1 AND 2. For about 6 years now and was almost asymptomatic for 4 of them (only getting a small outbreak once a year).So yes is it possible and it sucksssss

My first OB was like this; - it started on two places on the balls and worked its way around my complete genitals - I reckon it was OB on OB - it took 3 months to stop and heal - just talking my own experience.....

Longest would of been about 2 weeks with my initial OB. I just take 400mg of acyclovir morning, lunchtime & night time as I do like to have a beer or two some nights. If i feel an OB coming on, I just up the dosage to 2 more pills during the day and apply some acyclovir cream to the spot where my OB's are.

I do admit, the moving around of OB's has happened to me as you said HitbyHSV. The past OB has changed from underneath the forskin to the top part of the peep. But has not spread outside thank god!

      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.

      I got it from my ex-girlfriend from India. Break up after that. Now moving to canada.

      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.
