Question on OBs


Recommended Posts

Hi - I'm new to this forum, and so glad that it is here!

Just a little background on me - I was diagnosed in 2002 with GH and had been taking Valtrex everyday since then. I am not able to take that medication or anything like it as my kidneys and liver started to shut down due to the length of me taking this drug. I can't even take it during an OB and this is per my doctor. Now, onto the question portion

I was wondering if anyone gets extremely nauseous during an OB. I get them quite often now that I'm unable to take the medication and they are in different spots (I get about 2 OB a month now). I'm aware of Lysine and really need to go get some, but is there any alternative that anyone knows about? I also have really chapped lips even though I only have H on my genitals and I get really bad acne on my neck and chin right before and during. Anyone have similar experiences?

The doctors that I've been to seem to know very little about H, so I wonder how everyone copes with that and if anyone knows of a specialist in the New York area, I'd love to know as well.

Oh, last one (for now) does anyone get really emotional/stressed during OB?

I look forward to hearing back!

I was diagnosed w/gh in 1991 and never took medication.

I do not get nausea during an o/b, I do not get emotional or stressed during an o/b, I just got oral herpes in 06.

I got some info. for you on long term effects on Lysine:

Long-term Risks

Extended use of lysine has recently raised some severe health concerns. Although long-term use of lysine supplements may help to reduce the rate of outbreak recurrence, it may not be a safe treatment. At least one person taking 3000mg of Lysine daily for five years developed Fanconi's syndrome, a severe kidney disease that leads to renal failure. Even short-term use over a period of several days can cause abdominal pain and diarrhea. All people, especially those with kidney problems, should be heed lysine supplements with great caution. Further studies on lysine safety are warranted.

Natural approach to Herpes in general

  1. Avoid factors that brought on herpes like stress, infection, fevers, cold and flue, sun exposure, menstruation and sexual conflict or ambivalence.
  2. Avoid food which contain high levels of Arginine (an amino acid) such as chocolate, nuts (peanuts), grains, beans.
  3. Avoid acidic food such as tomatoes.
  4. Avoid direct skin and sexual contact with person actively infected with herpes.
  5. Avoid vitamin deficiency especially vitamin A, B complex, zinc, folic acid, iron, or vitamin B-12. Take potent multiple vitamin and mineral " My favorite multiple Vitamin / Mineral " for adult or AMNI® Kids Multi-Vitamin/mineral for children daily.
  6. Keep your immunity high especially in winter and early spring by taking Resistance Support Formula. Resistance Support Formula provides support for healthy immune function. Resistance Support Formula contains Siberian Ginseng, Echinacea, Elderberry Powder, Goldenseal, Garlic, Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice, Astragalus, Korean Ginseng, Bioflavonoids, Beta- Carotene, Lycopene, Reishi Mushroom, Lutein and optimal amount of multiple vitamins and minerals. These components have been proved clinically to be effective in improving immune function against infections.
  7. Take Selenium daily can reduce the incidence of herpes outbreaks.

a doc with GH

I have been treating GH for a decade and I know MANY unusual symptoms can occur. GH can be a systemic infection. It can have systemic symptoms. It all depends on how your immune system reacts to the infection.

I have not had any side effects in my patients but certainly reactions can occur with any med.

I have had very good luck with resveratrol containing supplements. I dont have any finacial interest in any resveratrol supplement company. The best supplement I have found is called Genesis..it is a herbal juice blend with resveratrol. It can be ordered from www.symmetrydirect.com/sservices If you sign up as a preferred customer its 33 dollars a month, possibly more depending on dose. I suggest one ounce twice a day.

      Hello there @momma267 and welcome. There is no reason to believe that what you have there is other than a pressure sore, something that has emerged from rubbing with clothing or butt cheeks and exacerbated by bacteria or yeast.  Note that the first you’d learn of herpes is unlikely to be on your butt, instead where it enters your body, this is usually within the vaginal lips for females.

      So to begin with, I am 26 and have been with the same partner for 8 years. I have only been with three people ever, one completely protected and the other we were both our firsts. I got this rash on my but while pregnant and my doctor said she was testing for it and I'm so confused. I've had two babies, breastfeed, and never had anything as much as a cold sore. Does this look like something anyone has experienced? I used fragrant soap down there and am hoping it's contact dermatitis or a heat rash from sweating and gaining so much weight.  Advice would be helpful. I'm stressing out a bit as I am pregnant.

      Hi, it is me again, apologies for the recent influx of posts. I've noticed a slightly raised area on the middle of my top lip with what i feel are some bumps. i do have a habit of biting my lips a fair bit and this area is frequented by my teeth. I haven't noticed any unusual/abnormal tingling or burning or pain sensations. the photos are a bit difficult to focus on them but do these seem like the start of cold sores? note: I will be visiting the drs for an std checkup in the coming week. https://imgur.com/gallery/YLVA5us

      To give everyone confidence that it wasn’t herpes related and conclude as the doctor did that it was a dermatitis issue to refer back to the dermatologist to continue with investigations.
