Hey I was just wondering if it's just me, but everytime I have any sort of slight irritation I think I'm getting an outbreak. Lately my outbreaks have moved to the anal area (sorry to get into detail) anyway I freak out when anything hurts but I think other factors can cause irritation in that area. I've looked at see no sores, so I'm thinking it's not an outbreak. Anyway I just wonder if anyone else freaks out like I do. I'm sure it's just my own paranoia. I'm pretty sure I would have thought nothing of it if there was any irritation there before I had H. Please let me know and feel less crazy!

Could be


I go throughtthe same thing. I am on the Never An Outbreak.com type diet.

It's a tought adjustment but I think I'm doing ok. Since me and ex split, I got it from her, sometimes I feel sensations but that's it.

As I said, I also on a program of sorts and using DMSO on suspect area if I feel strong sensations. Or 1x month otherwise.

But once your on your own you start thinking all kinds of stuff. I never got outbreaks unless she had them, and it was only a few times over 5 years. I have tested positive for it however. But now I'm on my own for last 2 months and so far it's been quiet.

I have cheated a bit with Vodka and Cranberry, and seem to feel sensations, but it's on the list of things to avoid.

The mind can be terrible thing. Here is some info from that site.

Also if you type in foods to avoid. Primarily

It's white flour products, all sugars, and fructose etc. alcohol, chocolate, nuts ( all kinds and nut butters ). Much info on this site. It's for you to decide what triggers to watch out for.

If you follow the directions properly this program will end all your outbreaks. Insure you follow the directions on the "Additional Instruction" sheet carefully. It takes precedent over the book.

To prevent potential problems read our current newsletter entitled "When Things Go Wrong--" located on the lower left of our home page at www.neveranoutbreak.com.

There is little references to diet in the first edition of the book. The second edition will be out in December. It covers diet in great detail along with much more information. The second edition will be sold to those who purchased the first book at a 50% discount. The second edition is a must read. if you follow the dictates of the second book you will never be bothered with this virus again.

For diet- very briefly: do not consume carbonated soft drinks (diet or regular), nothing hydrogenated or partial hydrogenated, no artificial sweeteners of any kind and as little refined (white) sugar and flour as possible. Use Stevia as a sweetener. It is plant based and has a zero Glycemic Index. Stevia is 20 times sweeter than sugar so use just a little at first and increase to taste.

Mostly consume foods that are below 55 on the Glycemic Scale. Occasionally consume foods that are from 55 to 65. Rarely consume foods that are above 65. Information on Glycemic Scale can be found through one of the search engines.

Best regards,

Customer Support

hey jh555, you are definitely not on your own, i had my first ob in november, then was clear all over xmas even tho every slight itch i had, every burning feelling i was convinced i was going to have another ob to the point i kept checking myself quite obbsessively....it was 4 days after new year i got my 2nd ob!!!!! i almost think that i worried myself to another ob, that and the few late nights with alcohol over xmas. Im determined after this one heals that im gonna try and put it to the back of my mind, because like you say, before i was diagnosed i never thought about any slight itches!!! so your not own your own nor crazy......

I'm obsessed

Somehow I know when I have a certain kind of itch, I know it's an outbreak. I get a nerve twitch in my right ear like no other. And the runs with a general sick feeling. Then within 24 hours an outbreak. Get Acyclovir from the doctor and take it. L-Lysine seems to work too and is available at health food stores like Mothers Market. I don't like testing fate when it comes to passing a thing like this to someone else. It's a hard thing to come to terms with being an alcoholic as I am. But drinking definetly has an effect on triggering outbreaks.

Also I've read that men have less outbreaks than women, that may also be a factor. Take care of your immune system as much as possible and be careful. Herpes is a life long disease. And just because you're not having symptoms of an outbreak,doesn't mean it isn't sheading or replicating inside your body.

If I have an itch or a sign, sex isn't happening for me.

I get cold sores a few times a year and in between the outbreaks I am paranoid about any little itch or bump or tingle on my lip. When I know I'm stressed out I take extra lysine and my diet doesn't include many of the foods that are "triggers" and yet I still get seemingly random outbreaks not related to the triggers. However not a day goes by that I am not constantly checking my lips in the mirror and praying an outbreak isn't on the horizon. I carry my zovirax cream with me EVERYWHERE, but I don't think it's quite as effective anymore.

      Hi guys, My name is Shelly. I'm 25 years old! I've had Herpes for 5 going on 6 years now. I'm just here hoping to learn more ways to deal with the situation and meet new people who actually know what I'm going through!  Thank you for reading! 💕

      Hey @Zrozpaczona9 that looks like folliculitis to me, that’s independent of the question of herpes. The doctor is wrong in the sense that a negative IgG test is beyond reasonable doubt that you do not have herpes. It is a small percentage of people for which a false negative occurs. The doctor is right to take a swab to increase your confidence that there’s no herpes present. I’m sure you’ll have your result soon.

      Hey @WilsoInAus miałam dzisiaj wizytę u dermatologa, gdyż dostałam zmian w pachwinie, w trakcie wakacji nad morzem. Udałam sie tam ze zmianami w postaci strupów. Powiedział ze nie można wykluczyć opryszczki mimo negatywnego wyniku Hsv igg i zalecił wymaz z pochwy na Hsv i inne choroby. Wytłumaczyłam mu że zmiany zamieniają się w strup, ale nie ma w nich płynu, więc zalecił badanie śluzu pochwy na hsv PCR, zastanawiam się czy ma to sens, i czy wirusa można wykryć na podstawie tego badania w wydzielin z szyjki macicy. Z góry dziekuje za pomoc

      In this forum we will discuss does lume work Lume is paraben-free and uses several natural ingredients like Aloe barbadensis leaf juice, tapioca starch, and Maranta arundinacea root powder (also known as arrowroot powder) to control odor and sweat. One of the key Lume deodorant ingredients is mandelic acid, an AHA found in skin care products, which also has an antibacterial effect.

      Ibuprofen medicine is a painkiller. Can you take ibuprofen on an empty stomach  Some people take medicine empty stomach which is not good for our health. Because painkiller kind of medicine is very strong and can harm your liver. Medicine makes many strong ingredients. like Lactose, corn starch, hypromellose, sodium starch glycolate, colloidal anhydrous silica, magnesium stearate, sucrose, talc, titanium dioxide (E171), and carnauba wax.
