Just sayin...I stopped taking my Valtex due to the fact that I thought my outbreak was over and woke up to oral,vagina & my whole anal area with a horrible ob....So my doctor said that the meds were surpressing my outbreak and it was not gone...so now that its stage one of this ob will starting my 2 a day 10 day pills stop it? It hurts and I hate it on my face!!!I work as a bartender and people get grossed out by me serving them food& drinks...Has anyone started taking meds when ob first appears does it help? can I take more than 2 a day you think? Thank you !!:mad:

There is a product out "Fast Results" that promises to shorten outbreaks considerably. It is a spray you can get at CVS or Rite Aid for $30. I have heard mixed results about it, but it may be worth a try.

Come to the Chat Room, there you will find many nice fellow Herpsters who can offer you their support.

Good luck!

      Amenamevir has a plasma half-life of 8-9 hours (as opposed to 2-3 hours for acyclovir), which means you're actively suppressing the virus for a much longer part of the day. Add to that the non-linear synergy of different mechanisms, and for many this combination could mean full symptom relief. We don't know yet, but it's not impossible. Can't wait for Amanalief to get approval for HSV and come to the US. It's all up to the FDA really. https://accp1.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/cpdd.630

      I think Dr. Jerome is just being cautious. I've followed what he's done and have 100% confidence in him. Predicting the exact number of years to a cure would be hard, but their last article about HSV makes me think it can't be too far off.

      Did you ever find out if this was herpes or not?

      @GotMeAtLast I doubt the doctor actually told you that, that doesn’t explain why you kept coming here looking for validation.  By your own admission, you have had oral HSV-1 for years. Further you have never swabbed positive from your genital region. Everyone is allowed to form their own conclusions on the basis of that truth. If you wish to conclude you have genital herpes, that’s OK. If I want to conclude you don’t, that’s OK.
