I only had H for almost a month, and I have outbreak after outbreak. Is this normal? I have had two already, and now I'm on my third one. As soon as one finishes, I'm fine for a day or two, and then it starts all over again. I still have the initial symptoms as the first outbreak (flu-like symptoms, swollen glands, discharge). Has anyone had it this severe?

Also, is it true that if you go on suppressive therapy, there's more of a chance that the virus will become resistent to the medicine? After you stop taking it, is it true that your outbreaks will come back worse than before?

I would appreciate any input. Thanks so much!

The severity of the OB varies with each person,so normal for you might be something totally diferent for others.Did the doc give you any Valtrex or anything to help clear it up at all?If so then it should have eased up a bit.maybe go back to the doc and ask a few more questions.

I'm not sure if our bodies can become resistent to any meds like Valtrex.You may want to visit the valtrex site,sorry I don't have a link,but you can do a google search.

I've been told by my doc that the first OB is quite bad,but they become less and less the more you have them.Has something to do with anti-bodies or something.Sorry,I know it but can't explain it well :?

In the meantime drink lots of water!!If you have pain use an ice-pack coverd in a towel and apply it gently to the area.Keep the sores clean and dry.Don't use any soap,have a bath in baking soda instead and use the blowdryer set on low to dry that area.Always wash your hands well after you touch any sores as you can spread it to yourself or others.Don't use tampons or do anything that involves penetration either during an OB.

      Hi @WhatDidIDo2023, hopefully all is well with you and your significant other and are still together.   Did she develop any other symptoms after you mentioned her getting itchiness? Was it determined what you had was contagious? Most likely developed a fungal disease and caused her a yeast or uti

      Hi @Luna 01 I really feel it is worthwhile obtaining a proper Herpeselect test given the outcomes of the home panel test. Regardless, your current symptoms are almost certainly not related to herpes. Hopefully, your doctor can assist in resolving these.
