Outbreaks without Sores

Recommended Posts

NYC10017

I've had Herpes for about 15 years. My first outbreak had all the typical symptoms, including visible ones. Since then, I average a recurrent outbreak about every year or two which I treat episodically with Famvir. One curious thing - I've never had sores after the first outbreak. Maybe they're microscopic? Now, I just get the pain which always longer than I think it should. It always amazes me how long it lasts.

Have you tried taking lysine? That can help shorten or prevent outbreaks too.

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

Good luck!

Hello! I am the same way. Was diagnosed in Oct. 1999 and typical symptoms as well. I currently have an outbreak right now but I don't see anything. Just feels like a pinching sensation. I also have shooting pains that run along the top of my butt down to my thigh. This pain usually starts it for me and then the pinching sensation. I now recognize these symptoms but unfortunatly I believe I gave it to my husband thinking since I can't see it, it's not there.
