What are the stages of the typical outbreak?

Recommended Posts

espricey

This is my first time posting here!

Anyways, I started experiencing some vaginal discomfort a few weeks after I became sexually active with my current serious boyfriend. It was just itching so I took it as nothing. But by about Tuesday, there was pain and we noticed actual bumps down there by Wednesday night. I went to the doctor Thursday morning and she said what I had was very suggestive of a herpes outbreak. I got put on acyclovir for the next five days, three a day. I've also been taking one Lysine a day. My boyfriend is going to get tested on Monday. He's not sure if he may of had mild symptoms in the past or a cold sore. I most likely got it from him through oral is my guess. That would mean HV 1? I will get my test results by Wednesday. What are the stages of an outbreak? I guess I am at the point where the sores are oozing...it hurts to pee although water there really helps.

Also how many pills a day of Lysine is best? Ive taken only one a day for the last two days. Also been taking pain meds. I heard the first outbreak is the worst.

Thank you for the help!! Sorry for all the questions!

OB Standard Progression & Lysine Intake

....It was just itching so I took it as nothing.

Hi espricey! :wavey:

Progression of OBs usually:

  1. Itching & tingling or both.
  2. Blisters
  3. Pain
  4. Blisters burst to raw, wet lesions.
  5. Pain
  6. Lesions begin to dry and heal.
  7. Healed skin with or without marking/scarring.

Not sure if I left out something. I rarely have full-fledged OBs anymore. I'm a 25-yr H-vet, and now I'm learning to alter my diet, and I take more supplements.

I've been taking Lysine for 4 mos and believe it helps reduce OBs and shortens the duration of OBs. My online research revealed that I can safely take 3000 mg of Lysine when needed, but 500 mg - 1000 mg per day is standard. I take 2000 mg every day, and increase to 3000 mg when I feel a tingle.

I've bought 500 mg, of which I take 4 daily, 2 in morning/night, or 4 throughout the day. I've also bought 1000mg, which I take 1 morning/night, or 3 throughout the day when I have a tingle.

If I have an OB, I take 3000 mg per day until it is healed.

Please do your own research though. This is the plan that I chose for myself, based on info I gathered from several sites.

Have a nice day.:flowers:

      Really wasn't sure which topic to put this in! I'm guessing a lot of you will have seen the recent news that Mel B was rushed to hospital thinking she was blind from her eye herpes.  I know she's not as famous as she used to be, but I really don't understand why celebrities with a big presence aren't doing anything about this, such as fundraising for a cure or even just talking about it to raise awareness. Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think she's ever spoken about it before!  She clearly suffers from some bad symptoms. Thinking that you've gone blind must have been one of the most terrifying experiences, and to me, after that ordeal I would try and do everything in my power to raise awareness and find a cure.  Maybe she just doesn't know about all the vaccination research that's currently happening, and how many of these places need the extra funding to keep going?  Not sure where I'm going with this 😂 But does anyone think it's worth getting in contact with her about raising some awareness?

      Hey @Alda whatever is going on for your arm you can rest assured it is not at all likely to be herpes. Could the blister type things be from the massage causing irritation, perhaps even contact dermatitis? If you aren't seeing improvement soon consider seeing the doctor but it doesn't strike me as anything of much concern.

      I need help; i went and got a massage and 2 days later my upper arm feels super sore and is red with 3 blister type things, each about a small pea size the place I got a massage at was  not very sanitary , it was hot in there and the masseuse was sweating I think (i do have the down south H but haven’t had a breakout in about a year and I still don’t.) my arm does not itch just super sore. I wonder what is on my arm. any ideas?

      It did! There are combinations you can take that will not give you this effect, I just didn't want to do medication anymore. What I am doing https://www.amazon.com/MakingCosmetics-BHT-4-4oz-125g/dp/B01DE780OS read Steve Fowkes free book BHT1/8 t in coconut liquid MCT chain oil. Extremely hard to dissolve. I leave it for a day, must read Steve Fowkes free book online, overdose gets people dizzy! More is not better! Oils will also not get Rancid if you put some in your cooking oils! whole food vitamin, glutamine 3x one gram, suggested by case9 love it DHEA,25mg, most people who breakout have low levels lugols iodine worked way to four drops. Fulvic acid minerals. Thyriod granular meds   When I used to have obs I used monolaurin and st.John s wort. I used diaper rash cream for obs I also still spray genitals with zinc sulfate mixed with water. I learned it kills any virus plus summer sweat won't smell at all!  There is one thing I will not be without and that's BHT and zinc sulfate
