Constant Itching!!! Does it ever end.

Recommended Posts


Ive been HSV + for over 5 years now, mostly i've been lucky hardly any outbreaks and when I do its usually one little spot, no blister just itching. Now since November ive had CONSTANT itching. It never stops, well i should say its a daily itching, better in the morning and during the day but at night OMG just terrible! Usually localized to one spot, but sometimes more. At first it started out hive like, would itch and then swell and act like a large hive, but lately its just an itch for awhile, and once you scratch it, it almost feels raw and then feels better. Its an agonizing cycle! I've talked to my doctor, i started l-lysine tablets. and been taking valacyclovir (valtrex generic), but no luck!! I called back and Dr. said try a hydrocortisone cream....anyone have any experience with this? I've heard there not only bad to use in the vaginal area but bad for HSV virus??

Any suggestions, thoughts, or anyone going through the same thing???

      Just read how Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez helped raise $340,000 for transgender youth. https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-casually-joins-171241889.html It sure would help if we had some celebrity or public person champion our cause. Maybe that should be our focus, to reach out to public persons and try to enlist them.  All it takes is a tweet from the right person.

      Dr. Iwasaki is definitely deserving of funding. I'd love it if we could do a fund raiser for her. I guess at the moment we are already doing the Fred Hutch Center.

      Hi, I’ve had HSV1g for 4 years and only ever had my first and only breakout. I’m super thankful for that. I still hate disclosing as it sets off alarms. Finally met a guy I really really like and disclosed last night to be clear about why I’ve been hesitant to be intimate.  We have for sure kissed and after telling he was in a panick about us having kissed. I’ve never ever had cold sores and have never passed it to anyone. Again in 4 years only my first and only genital HsV1 breakout. I’ve always been told kissing for me was fine....Can anyone help clarify? I’m resllt struggling as I like this guy a lot and hoping he can look past it.
