I have been bitchin' and complainin' of late about all the outbreaks I have suddenly had in the past few months. Almost every month I would have one, then...as soon as it cleared up, I would have another one. It was making me INSANE (since in the past I NEVER had em!) I am not keen on suppressive therapy, I only take Valtrex when in the midst of an OB. I don't want my body to depend on them, our immune systems are SO amazing and sometimes just need a little teeny help along the way, rather than a suppresion DRUG.

For me...it is Lysine. I stopped taking Lysine while pregnant (just took my prenatal vitamins) because I had read that it is not always good for the fetus. after I had the baby, I just never went to the store and refilled my stock on lysine. So a month and a half ago ...maybe longer...I got some lysine. I had been feeling that familiar tingle "down there' and sure enough, I saw some blisters forming. Well, I took about 1000 mgs of lysine, and the next day, the blisters had gone away, there was just the slightest hint of "itchiness" as well as some red spots, but then those went away a day or so later! !!!! :D I was ecstatic. I continued with the 1000 milligrams a day along with a b complex vitamin, and now I just take 500 mgs of Lysine. If I sense an OB, I will up the ante with a double dose of Lysine. It is now obvious to me that my body does not have enough of this lovely vitamin in it, so I HAVE to take it to help alleviate OB's and hasten the healing process should I have an OB.

I have been so much more at ease of late. (I am sure THIS has helped with my frequent OB's as well...I am not stressing on them!) The vitamin regiment is working for me. And I eat things with nuts in them and whatnot. So I would say for everyone here to at least give this stuff a shot (if they haven't already) and to experiment a bit with it. Try different dosages (within reason, don't go crazy! I wouldn't go over 2000 mikes a day!) and just see what happens! You have nothing to lose and Lysine is a fairly cheap vitamin. I will NEVER let myself run out of it again!

but try that along with a bcomplex (good for your central nervous system!) and along with Vitamin c (immune system booster....it is the one vitamin our body can not store, so it is good to take a supplement of it!)

Good luck you all! I hope this helps someone else like it has me! Don't be afraid to use yourself as your own guinea pig. YOU know what is best for YOU...more than any doctor, nurse, family member or friend. I think there are very few doctors out there who truly understand this disease. My OB/GYN told me so many things that were totally conflicting with what I have read elsewhere....which makes me go...hmmmm......

      Hi @Anxious 1234 Did you get diagnosis for this?

      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.
