does anyone itch towards the end of an outbreak? I am having aloooot of itching right now and i thought my outbreak was practically over... it was my first. Just wondering if im having another, if its the same one or if its normal to itch like crazy at the end. So far i dont see any rashes of new blisters and im hoping i dont. Will an antihistamine help?

I had my first OB about three weeks ago. My 1st OB lasted about 5 days. It calmed for a few days with slight on and off itching then after that I was itching everyday for almost the whole day. I used vagisil coz there was no blisters or anything, just itchy. So after about two weeks of my last OB, i had my second OB but i only had two tiny blisters so i took my med valtrex as per my doctor's instruction and it disappeared in three days as well as the itching. I still itch but very seldom now compared to after my first OB that i was itching the whole day. I tried tea tree oil, and it helped temporarily and now i am using purell. Im not sure if the itchiness will come back once im done taking my med tomorrow.

      I think once my bottle of optimal fulic acid is gone. I am going to switch to shilijit or however you spell it. I think humic acid plays an important role in keeping the hsv at bay. I read one natureopath was using only humic acid tablets to help her patients, but it didnt mention a dose or brand. Except that they slowly amounted to 8 tablets over i think it said almost a year to prevent a bad herx reaction. Can anyone trying the shillijiat chime in on how they have been doing on it? How often they take it and what your reactions have been the first few months?

      That’s it. I’m telling you the truth. I really can’t believe you. I have no reason to pretend to be someone else. I came here to learn and feel like people understood what I’m going through. You have me so upset. I don’t know what an IP address is but I know that admin can tell you I’m telling the truth.  Please, please just leave me alone so I don’t have to leave.

      @WilsoInAus well that picture I just posted look very similar to fordyce spots, but who knows...I get tested soon so perhaps that’ll be the verdict
