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.

      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.
