About My Outbreaks ..........."ouch"

Recommended Posts


HI everyone, I have had simplex on my lip for the last 15 years and have understood what brings on an outbreak. For me stress is #1, alcohol, diet, being sick, sun, biting into a hard apple which causes some trauma on the lips brings on an out break every time and any kind of trauma to my lips brings out the blisters. During some of the most stressful times in my life it would not be usual for me to have 3 to 4 outbreaks a month. Valtrex 1000 mg pills is my only help medically. At the first sign of any tingling on my lip I take 2- 1000 mg tablets to slow down the effect of the virus. If I don't take the Valtrex my lip will swell up like someone punched me in the face ! Right now I am in the middle of an outbreak. The first one in allmost 2 years ! I have changed my life......... "No more stress" learn how to manage your stress. No more alcohol, use sun block on your lips. Change your diet, I no longer use salt or sugar I eat fruits and veggies mostly and a little chicken or beef. No sodas or candy, try and eat healthy. I also execise regularly and run a couple of miles per day. I really think the no salt, sugar and alcohol have done wonders. I have tryed Lysine and that really doesnot work ! Hope they find a cure for this soon so I can start drinking again ! :D I just want to thank my ex wife for giving me this nightmare .................... :madd:

Look into kelp extract

Someone told me about this, and from what I have read, it too helps prevent outbreaks.

How much Lysine were you taking? When I am dating someone I take 1000mg of Lysine a day and it seems to work for me.

Good luck!

Lysine ..................

Lysineis is no good for me started with 4000 mg a day and then more ...... no difference. Valtrex is the only noticeable drug that will do anything. :D

      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?
