From my symptoms I think I catched HSV2, it’s located in my tactical and bladder. With days I start to feel pain and tingling in my kidneys. The question is do you guys it is from the HSV or not ?
Valtrex is a great antiviral. It can get into those hard to reach places that the other two can’t. I took 1000mg a day four years and then stopped. Huge mistake. When I had an outbreak I started back up and had to stop because I became allergic to it. I was devastated. It was by far the worst outbreak of my life. Valtrex is very hard on the kidneys. Later I learned I have a kidney disease (not caused by medications) and that basically why my body was rejecting it. If you’re taking it and want to switch I’d get a professional opinion. My doctor said sometimes when you stop a medication like an antiviral your body will sometimes reject it. I’m definitely not switching to fam. Staying on acyclovir as long as I can. Praying that a vaccine will be available in a few years.
I have the Acyclovir ointment. It works okay on the mouth area. I’ve never crushed up pills and made a topical solution. But my experiment with TeeTree oil mixed with a carrier oils like jojoba oil seems to work well, especially on the mouth.
