When do I get a break?!??!?!?!

Recommended Posts


My first OB started on 10/04/12 and my official diagnosis of type 1 GHSV came a few days later. Since then I have had 2 days pain/lesion free. They just keep popping up, I get rid of one and then bam I look and there is a new one! I don't know what to do...:(:(

I have been taking 500mg Valtrex 2x per day and lysine and an immune support complex and I am just not getting an relief. These new lesions are not hurting like the first OB but I don't know if these are seperate OB as when a lesion goes away and new one pops up or if it is just the same OB going on...

I know I should be thankful that I am not in pain this time, but yesterday was a really crappy day and all I really wanted was to cuddle up with my man and be comforted in the best way possible, but no, of course I can't do that. I know it sounds shallow and stupid but I just want this to end.

      Diagnosed a year ago. Tried suppression therapy to no avail. Dr prescribed 500mg Valtrex increased to 1000g no help. Two HIV test negative. The worst experience ever. Tried oil of oregano, olive leaf extract, lysine, Multi vitamin. Just read because I’m peri menopausal it might be hormones. Outbreaks are constant hsv 2.  If anyone can can relate, I’m pleading for insight.

      Hi walkthetalk can you please give us more details about your experience with synergy as for how long you been in it, you mention you didn’t get outbreaks do you still feel the flares etc, are you planing to get retested?

      The medications are mainly based on disrupting replication. I am not aware of medications for herpes with the purpose of reducing antibodies directly. Do you have an example?

      I've been reading up on alot of this and I'm just curious about the meds they offer here. They stop it from replicating and others keep the antibodies down. Just a thought and I'd appreciate any input on this. Wouldn't you much rather have high antibodies for this so the immune system can keep it at bay. Or am I all the way off?
