Were you officially diagnosed? typically the first outbreak is the worst, not the second.

And yes it is possible for herpes to infect someone who has not slept with anyone else. You can get genital herpes from someone who suffers from cold sores, to you can get it and still be a virgin.

Are you taking meds? Your doctor should have prescribed antiviruals like valtrex or acyclovir.

Unfortunately if you have a bad immune system you may suffer from this because that is key to fighting this virus. If your immune systemm is not strong you should consider taking meds every day.

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

Good luck!

      Hi guy,  Just diagnosed and trying to move on with my life. Understanding to prevent further outbreak, we would be best to stay actively healthy both mentally and physically.  Due to my nature of work, I am always under pressure. Should I plan on quitting and look for another job that is well suitable for my current condition or is manageable?  :,)

      I have no choice, I have tried everything on this planet regarding holistic approach. Nothing work so far. Now I am on Neem, does not work. I just keep trying new things as I go along. I believe some like me actually have a very strong immune system (have not been sick since I can remember, maybe 9-10 years) but my immune system does not recognise my HSV, so it just does what it wants, thats why the continuous OB's.  Don't think about ending life, life is to priceless. This is not cancer. Try to date a guy who have it as well, then there would be something you could fight together.
