ob..typically how long?


Recommended Posts

I've read how depending on type HSV1/HSV2 that outbreaks can vary.

what is the typical duration of a type 2 ob? Also ,what are some shortest to longest durations? I'm just trying to get an idea where i might be. Also...when a ob is ending...what is typical scenario?...When the sores completley dissapear(PLEASE tell me they do :shock: ) and everthing feels completley normal? Or does it not feel ever completley normal again?

Right now..I'm really feeling there's nothing really to look forward too...

I feel very empty right now

This ob is consuming me physically and emotionally...and this is only the first one

I had my 1st OB a few weeks ago and was put on Acyclovir. Within 6 days the sores were healed. I didn't notice any scabs tho. It was like they healed and were gone, but they didn't all heal at the same time it took a few days after I stared the meds. As of today I feel fine down there. I get worried over the slightest itch tho and it send me into a panic. Are you taking anything for your OB?

Thanx for reply Zab. No,I'm not on and meds...damn doctor said there was no point since by the time I first noticed symptoms to the time I finally got results(he could have put me on them when I was examined??) it was too long,that Valtrex must be taken within 48 hrs to make any diffrence?? I think he was a callous high on horse ass.I've been doing all the vitimins/ll-lisgn etc... I even tried the colgate toothpaste on the sores thingy..helped painwise a little..but the sores did not go away. I had ordered some chorofor and it just finally arrived...I tried that last night...so far so good...seems to be drying them up pretty good...no new ones so far...burned a little putting it on,not too big a deal..but got pretty itchy..your not supposed to scratch :roll: Also not supposed to get the sores wet...they mentioned to be creative..lol

I was trying to figure how I was going to have a shower and not get wet there...ended up using a sandwich bag and rubberbands...LOL :lol:

That did not work too well...found some waterproof bandages..we'll see how that turns out. So far I'm in a little better frame of mind and if this chorofor works for me I'll be very happy :D Though I know i'm going to be so paranoid in the worry of triggering another ob...I've read that the friction during sex can sometimes cause this...GOD..please don't do that to me..I'll have to seriously think of the priesthooh :lol:

      Hey @JS.245 and welcome to the website. The pictures aren’t that suggestive of herpes. Hard to tell from the pics what’s going on, but that could be a number of things. Are the larger bump bubble things persistent? What you have in the pics is hence independent of your herpes status.  The test results are inclusive - most people test over 5 if they are infected.  Do you have a history of oral cold sores?

      Hey, just got a STD test a while ago after noticing these showing up at the base of my penis, but its been about 5 months since I was with someone and now these are showing up. It doesn't hurt nor do I have any other symptom that I know of. I'm trying to see what's up before I go to the doctors because I don't have insurance and I'm very anxious about the situation. the std test was expensive as is.

      Just another set of supporting articles to a potential release date in 2024 giving hope to sufferers whom the standard of care is currently worthless: Promising Progress in clinical trials for Pritelivir (herpescureadvocacy.com) HSV Treatment Readies for Approval — Precision Vaccinations News

      I have not found a cheaper source for Amenalief, and I've searched high and low. I have a thread called "Pritelivir at Last" you may want to follow as I have a strong belief that It may be available to the public in the summer of 2024 and as I find new info, I update the thread immediately. Now, may I suggest a combination of drugs that several others on this forum have found to be very effective over acyclovir alone? Myself and others have found that taking 40mg of omeprazole (Tagamet @dissolvedo2 ) with 1 gram of Valacyclovir in the morning and 1 gram of Valacyclovir in the evening alone for 3 days have had profound effectiveness at stopping outbreaks in their tracks. I'd like to remind you that I am not a doctor and at best I am personal researcher for what works for me. I @lw@ys share my findings with the forum in the hopes to help others alleviate their suffering. There is another drug combo that I have tried myself as well as others on this forum have tried and that I personally feel is a much more effective for myself. This combo is 1 gram of activated charcoal with 1-gram of valacyclovir in the morning followed by 1 gram of valacyclovir in the evening alone, again for 3 days. I have found that this has reduced my outbreaks to almost only once a year and they are mild at worse. Again, just a reminder that this works for me and may not work for you but I always feel that i have to share this with anyone that cannot get this virus under control so I hope my findings can help those of you who cannot achieve relief with the standard treatment alone. The stronger anti-virals come with risks and if I can help anyone avoid those risks then by all means I feel I have done some good in this world. I only ask that you let me know if either of these suggestions work for you so that I can document it in my notes. Good luck my friend!
