tears dispite Aclyclovir


Recommended Posts

I have been taken Aclyclovir 2x a day for at least a month now, and I just noticed today I have another small tear below my vaginal opening :(

I think I have had HSV-2 for a few years now but never noticed because ALL I get are these tiny small tears that are barely visable to the naked eye. I literally have to take a picture with my camera and zoom in to be able to really see them.

What is up with this? Anyone else have this problem? I am afraid one day I will have a tear and not know it and go to have sex when I shouldn't. Any advice?

I suffered with vaginal and rectal fissures (tears) for over a year prior to my first OB. They can be miserable. My herpes didn't get under control until I went on generic Valtrex. I started with 500mg twice per day but still could not kill the OB from Hell until I went on a 1gram twice per day for several weeks. That was about 8 months ago. Since that time I have been taking Acyclovir 400 mg twice per day. I have had a few milder OBs but no more fissures (tears) once I got that major OB under control with large doses of generic Valtrex (valacyclovir). It was expensive but worth it.

      Thanks for your response! I received unprotected oral 10 weeks ago and immediately after had stinging in my glans and weird nerve pain. I am positive for HSV1 due to cold sores I got as a child, but as recent as 9 weeks after this exposure have tested negative for HSV2.    im nervous that I may have acquired hsv1 again on my genitals since HSV2 is rarely acquired from oral sex and doesn’t shed hardly at all, but haven’t seen any sores yet. Just weird symptoms and this started recently in my buttcrack when I was taking antibiotics.   Any advice or perspective would be greatly appreciated. @WilsoInAus

      Hi @Throwaway765 and welcome. There is absolutely no concern over this being related to herpes. Something must be concerning you as to the possibility of herpes… what is it?
