Hello new to the site,how yall doing.I was daignose almost a year ago but i never treated but now about a week ago I feel very itchy which i think is part of shingles. Been to the clinic but the bill was expensive to me. I almost bought a prescription from the medavir website until I saw this and wanted to hear from my fellow members who have been there and are treating the same issue like mine. I want to get some prescription to supress my outbreaks. I have only had cold sore on two outbreaks and that was the early stages.The only symptons I feel is my body is burning always. Please help.

I don't know if a doctor will prescribe antivirals if you have only had two cold sore outbreaks. They typically prescribe them if you have them more frequently.

Examine your diet and try and remove as much food that contains arginine as possible. That is an amino acid that helps the virus replicate. You can take lysine supplements which should help. Lysine is another amino acid that does NOT help the virus. You can also get it in food. This site has a list of food to avoid and what is good.

Good luck!

JB
