I have a question! Please help

Recommended Posts


So I have GHsv-1 I had my first outbreak the last week of October and was diagnosed the first week of November and the pain and symptoms r gone as of the nov 12.. I'm noticing now tho I'm pretty much all cleared up Except for a few battle wounds left behind but the creases on my thighs r itchy and have some pimple like lessions but also diaper rash like.. It's no painful than a heat rash.. Could this still be the end of my initial outbreak or a second one starting? It's only on my inner thigh area no where else. Maybe just a rash from itching? Anyone else experience itching afterward? My doc gave me valtrex and said to get the prescription filled when I had symptoms the next time and not to worry about my first ob cuz it was almost gone. Now I don't know what to do... What r symptoms of a second outbreak?

It is probably the ending of your first. However if it is not, it would not be a bad thing to get the Valtrex and start taking it. If it is not an outbreak taking valtrex will do no damage.

Good luck!

      I am taking the same medication, and I have noticed that on occasion, it does come back, not as horrible as when it first began happening, but like little patches, small areas. I'd just refill my prescription, take as directed, and it'd go away. I took my last pill today, and I have been talking vitamins every day. Did not know about elderberry, I've been taking tumeric, B12, echinacea, vitamin C, lysine, cranberry and anything else that helps promote immune health as well as skin.
