Getting worse over time

Recommended Posts

notagain909

One of the few things that kept me from completely giving up was that so many people here say that herpes outbreaks get better over time. Although my ob's have become less painful to touch, they're more frequent and last a lot longer than they did in my first year. I'm also experiencing new shooting pains in my leg and genitals.

I'm almost 2 years in and this second year is much worse. My ob's now last from 2-8 weeks. They were lasing 1-2 weeks during the first year. Over the last 3 months I've been experiencing an ob 90% of the time (and I'm not exaggerating).

I refuse to take daily pharmaceuticals for the rest of my life. I sometimes take Lysine, Kelp, Vitamin C and Zinc but after 5-6 weeks of an ob I feel like it's pointless

I guess the point of this thread is to let people know that outbreaks sometimes get worse over time.

This 'minor skin condition' is kicking my immune system's ass.

Hi, you said you "refuse to take daily pharmaceuticals for the rest of my life" but would you consider using them in the short term?

I suppose I would but I don't really see the point. The second you stop taking them the herpes dominates you again.

I got a week supply of valtrex for my first ob and I got a new ob 2 months later.

Why cure the problem when you can treat the symptoms and have them buying drugs for life? Sorry, I'll save that talk for my conspiracy theory meetings.

I'm also currently unemployed, and even when I was covered valtrex was extremely pricey.

There are some members that have found taking daily suppressants during the first two years has helped and that once they have come off them they have had very few small breakouts.

The "copy" Valtrex is available under several schemes in the US; Walgreens, Walmart; on their $4 programme.

It might be worth a go and see how your body reacts, unfortunately there are no cut and dried answers to if it will work or not.

Hope you get some relief soon

i think suppressive therapy would work for you. maybe look into acyclovir its cheaper than valtrex. you should also take those vitamins on a daily basis, not just when you have an outbreak . these meds can build up in ur system while getting a stronger immune system.. which could be another problem. i had outbreaks frequently the first year and then i started lysine along with my other supplements and noticed big changes. i would just try it and see if it works for you thats all.

      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
