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.

      If your eye was affected by HSV you'd be in intense pain and you'd be in the hospital on an antiviral drip.  It is likely a coincidence of timing, and something that you shouldn't overthink.  Definitely worth getting checked anyway since the eye is a sensitive area.

      I found this website today. You can now pre order Viblok but no potential delivery date is given. The company is in Florida and I called but got a recorded message. https://www.viblok.com/

      Here's something interesting. You can now pre-order Viblok.  However, the website does not indicate when it will be available. https://www.viblok.com/

      Hey all. I had an STD check while pregnant with my now 3 yo and it was perfectly clean, hadn’t had another one until a few months ago   I was sexually assulted about 4 months ago. Because of that I asked for all STD testing. My first HSV 2 IGG score came back at 4.00, I requested another 2 weeks later and it’s now a 3.22 IGG. Should I take this as for sure positive or would it warrant a WB at all? Is it normal for numbers to go down like that?   Ive had NO symptoms whatsoever, at any time     Also, condoms, guys what are the best ones that feel as natural as possible?? Any ideas?
