prodrome = shedding?

Recommended Posts

Some people experience tingling, aches, itching, etc constantly. Does that mean they are always shedding?

If they are taking valtrex are they okay to have sex without as high of a risk of transmission? Or does prodrome even with valtrex mean they should avoid having sex?

You can never know exactly when you are shedding and just because you are shedding doesn't always mean you are contagious. Taking antivirals does reduce the risk of transmission significantly.

Since there are so many variables to when you might be contagious it is always wise to avoid sex when you have any symptoms.
