Just try to remember that dating was a little nerve-wracking before, too. People without herpes get rejected, get dumped for stupid reasons, and have bad relationships. It's just the way things go - and herpes is really just another part of it. Many people have this virus, and many more are understanding. I hope that you meet good people and have a positive dating experience! Good luck!

Hey Jenkins. . . . I have had to tell 2 people thus far. One took it very well, didn't mind at all and even reassured me multiple times that it is okay! The other guy wasn't educated at all on herpes and therefore reacted a bit differently. At first he was okay but then told me that he still wasn't comfortable with it. That was fine with me! All I asked is that he be honest. I read (I think on this site a while back) that having herpes can be a positive. . . as it forces you to get to know a person before moving your relationship to the next step. This is so true and I view it as a pro!!!

The pictures were amazing. @Divon I found her and you can get her exact instructions if you wish. Up to you. I can add you as a friend put you in the group and lead you to the exact post.

      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.
