Every outbreak is worse than the last

shouldn't it be the other way around?

I'm beginning to think there might be something terribly wrong here...

Hi there, trying!

This may sound like a pin in the rear, but you may want to keep a diary of everything you eat, how much sleep you are getting, exercise, how much water you drink daily, and what supplements you are taking daily.

This would likely give you an idea of where you may need to make some changes. It wouldn't hurt to talk to your dr. about it as well. If you could work with a naturopath that could help a lot but I know it's expensive. There are many things you can do naturally that can help a lot!!

I hope you feel better soon!!!

I'm very careful about what I eat.

Always drink lots of water.

I tend to drink a lot of alcohol as well, which doesn't seem to be a trigger for me either, considering I drink almost every day but these bad outbreaks come about once every couple months or so.

I am on anti-virals, I've tried all different kinds currently on famvir.

I also take lysine and red marine algae and olive leaf.

And I use releev topically.

Basically, I'm doing everything that I could be doing to combat this virus, and I continue to lose lose lose.

edit: this outbreak is horrible, all over my toplip and (for the first time) also on my bottom lip. really oozy and nasty and spread out. AND it just so happens I have two people coming to visit for the next 14 days. the timing could not be worse.

Stress

Over and above all the dietary things, alcohol, etc. --- the main trigger for most folks seems to come down to stress.

So perhaps a hard look at the stressors in your life, and what you are doing to manage them, could be helpful...

so...

I had a culture and blood test taken, and.........

both were NEGATIVE!

so the dr. is completely stumped as to what these outbreaks are on my lips, since all tests thus far have been negative for hsv.

I'm worried that it could be cancer/an immune issue/rheumatoid issue, although all of this is still very unclear to me.

ack!

Wow. That must be horribly frustrating and scary. No idea what to suggest to you.

Hang in there!

Great news that your test results are negative! Maybe it's a bad case of acne? Have you seen a dermatologist? That's what I would do if I were you.

      So ur saying the herbalife was the key?? Olive leaf extract and pro biotic are good? How many mgs of Lysine did you take a day?

      hello all, update... so the white ulcer inside started around january 4... and today it is still there... no burning while i pee, just a constant mild irritation feel, no other symptoms i went back to get retested 2/12 so 2.5 months after exposure... including HSV, HIV, gon, chlam, everything came back negative... the doctor thinks it's some form of chlamydia, he gave my doxy for 10 days is it too soon to tell if i have HSV? is it possible to have an ulcer inside the urethra and be fungal or bacterial?

      Probably not many.  I'm going to change my twitter symbol to the copper ribbon at least.

      okay! I guess I will just start at the basic dosage of vitamin C and go up every week little ? I take 1500 mg of super lysine like the bottle says and it still gives me gas and diarrhea. hoping it will pass if not I'll drop down to 2 a day! I really appreciate the advice! i know we would all.do ANYTNING to not have OB  at the moment idc about stigmas od boyfriends or dating or sex....I just care about FEELING healthy in my own skin. this is my one and only life

      That sounds like a good place to begin.  The lysine worked really well for me for about a year and a half.  Then things got steadily worse for me and nothing worked until vitamin C.  My immune system is not that great even tho i take care of myself, so u may have good luck if u have a decent one.  With the vitamin c, u must 1) take it at intervals throughout the day, not all at once 2) dont increase the amount u r taking too fast 3) it will give u gas at higher doses and even diarrhea if u go crazy with it. These r signs to lower your dose!  If u can just control your OB's with vitamin c and lysine or anything else, maybe a cure will finally become available.
