You mean like one continuous outbreak for 4 months? Are you sure thats herpes because its not supposed to do that...

Anyway, yes I get tons and tons of outbreaks. I don't get sores so its hard to tell how many days the outbreaks themselves last, but I usually get a few days of burning/pain/tingling in my lower back and then some really severe itching and about a day or day and a half of severe stinging pain. So at least the symptoms I'm aware of last for about 3 or 4 days total, followed by maybe 3-5 days of feeling "normal" and then right back to the back pain and another OB. The longest I've had inbetween OB's is a week and a half or maybe 2 weeks since I got the virus in March.

Yeah.. I was having constant outbreaks also.. and needed supressive therapy and it really really helped.. It does suck taking 2 pills a day.. but it's way way better than the Obs

i have tried lots of lysine and it never worked. i also tried acivlovir once doc gave me and it didnt work. did you never get any sort of break from it without the pills liz? i heard valtrex is the same as aciclovyir so that wouldnt work either? have i got a resistant strain?

i just wanna be able to let my willy hang out one day ya know!

at times it looks like its just about to go away then BANG. i wake up and theres even more new sores.

mine is the same way. i had the bumps in the same place for over four months now. i have all the correct symptoms of herpes so i don't believe its anything else. i don't know what to tell you. i've asked this question a lot too and never really got a clear answer.

What type of lysine are you taking? When I was first diagnosed (June 09) I tried a regular lysine from walmart but it didn't work. Now I take Super Lysine by Quatum (i think that's the spelling) health from the health food store and I also take Solary Olive leaf. Those two supplements every couple of days in addition to a lot of herbal, usually green tea, (replaced coffee with tea) and I never get outbreaks. I do however, experience the lower back pains but it's manageable. There are many things you can do to stop the outbreaks. Organic sulfur is excellent as well, just do your research! We'll all be fine, try to relax as much as possible and surround yourself with positive things and positive people and stay strong in faith!! You'll be fine!!:)

I have experienced what your talking about, im so sorry. My advice is take high doses of an antiviral, OR switch your antiviral. Valtrex stopped working for me, but somehow acyclovir does work for me. Then there are more you could take as well. If you are suffering dont be afraid of talking to your doctor about it and taking MORE antivirals. most of my suffering from outbreaks is caused by me not taking the pills all the way through, or taking not enough or just not taking them at all. I would see what your doctor has to say, im sorry :(

jackpot

I thought I had hit the jackpot after continuously getting OBs every week and stopped getting them for 2 months (after sustained doses of Valtrex 1000 mgs a day).

Then I got one last week and still feeling crummy about it. And I can't tell if it went away, after 10 days and the valtrex again. I think I get sores around my anus and can never tell if i'm just having "problems" or it's still an OB. Could it be? Does anybody know?

      I to have one outbreak after another. Never been tested but I know I have it . I would love advice on how to help with lesions on my labia.  Those hurt the worst and last the longest .  I have found if I take a pin and pop the ones on the regular skin and cover them with coconut oil salt scrub ,it drys them up and almost gone immediately and dont spread near as bad .  As I said I have lesions now and I cant seem to make them better . They hurt so bad .   I am new to this and have no idea how I got it. Been with the same person for years .

      I jus recently found out I have hsv. The first test came back negative they said it was jock itch but I had another lil spot pop up in the crease of my leg an that came back positive. I was so broken at that moment. That someone couldn’t have told me so we could have took actions to prevent me from getting it. I understand well all have it but some people’s is active an some people’s aren’t. I have some questions tho. Ever since I have been diagnosed I have been getting these lil spots poppin up on my legs knuckles an other places that itch tremendously bad idk if it’s bc I’m overly paranoid bc I’ve found out I have this or if there is something else wrong w me   I’m embarrassed to go to the doc about it this has really put me into a deep depression an I found this site hoping to get answers an support on how to deal with this I was praying that maybe this was all a bad dream but unfortunately I was wrong. Please help

      Same thing happened to me not long after having unprotected sex.  I have not tested positive for HSV, but I experience what you are in that area

      Diagnosed a year ago. Tried suppression therapy to no avail. Dr prescribed 500mg Valtrex increased to 1000g no help. Two HIV test negative. The worst experience ever. Tried oil of oregano, olive leaf extract, lysine, Multi vitamin. Just read because I’m peri menopausal it might be hormones. Outbreaks are constant hsv 2.  If anyone can can relate, I’m pleading for insight.
