Help! Constant Oral HSV-2 Outbreaks

Recommended Posts

MissPandora

Hey guys,

I have had this virus since the end of August, and I have had constant oral outbreaks all over my face since then. Talk about a nightmare!! I get about 4-6 coldsores at a time, and even when they clear up, the scars are still there. And then a week or 2 later, I break out again. It usually flares up most right before my period. Genitally, this virus has been so mild for me, even though those outbreaks are still about once a month. I need help, y'all. I need to get on Valtrex daily, but I don't have health insurance or a GP. Here are my questions:

Will Planned Parenthood prescribe Valtrex?

How much does Valtrex cost without health insurance?

What alternative treatments am I missing besides Lysine?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Planned Parenthood will prescribe acyclovir for GH, not oral. But, if you have GH as well then they should prescribe for free. If you have oral Herpes only the cost is about $30 a month at Planned Parenthood.

Walmart has Acyclovir for $4 per prescription

Find a doctor who will prescribe that for you. Others including Kroger and Costco I believe have it really cheap too.

I take Lysine daily and highly recommend it. Someone also told me about kelp extract and from what I have read it too would help prevent outbreaks.

Good luck!

I feel you pain! I've had this crap for over a year now and have constant outbreaks ever week down below and on my face. I usually get hit with a dozen or more blisters around my nose, face and forehead & in the groin area! Don't waste your money on Valtrex, it worthless!! I take 3000 or more milligrams a day plus 3-4000 mg of Lysine and still constant breakouts. I've tried almost everything on here listed by others and still no luck! Life sucks:madd:

I have constant OBs as well. Like you, riptide969, I've tried just about everything, including all three antivirals, and I'm not kicking this thing to the curb. I'm a pretty strong person, but even I have my limit of what I can deal with after a while. Persevere we must, I guess.

      Hi! I was diagnosed one year and four months ago. Not a major first outbreak. Than 2,5 months later my second. Then faster a Little ob. Then is was without for almost 7 months. I really felt that was how i could handle things. Then in June i started having ob after ob. It was a very hot summer here in Holland. Also started a new relationship so more frequent sexual Activity. Not sure what coused it but those things i did feel like could trigger it.  Started acyclivir two months ago. That helps a great deal. But really dont want to Stay on Anti virals. Willing to try natural stuff but also right now feeling very happy not worrying all the time. Need to discuss again with my doctor soon.

      Oh wow that sounds mind boggling,, maybe your diet is your problem as well. Dang I thought guys had it a little easier seeing as tho you could keep your ob's dry better than a woman for it to heal..  I've never heard of Neem what's is that

      Yea I believe it may have to do with my diet i just recently cut out beef, chocolate & nuts & started eating more fish & fruits & smoothies and my symtoms are going away suprisingly. I think it was more so the chocolate for me lol smh im gonna miss it. And NO WAY your stomach!?? Like how does that happen lol that's so weird
