Please help. Continuous outbreak for 5 months


Recommended Posts

I have had Genital HSV for 5 years. It was always easily controlled with Valtrex. I had the odd outbreak, maybe once every year. It really hadnt affected my life at all. Suddenly in April, I started getting constant outbreaks. I mean literally constant. I think the longest I've gone without one, since April is a week. Usually there are new sores occurring every 3 days. I haven't changed my life in any way. Like I can't identify anything that could have triggered it. I don't understand how this disease got so much more severe after 5 years with it. My doctor put me on a higher dose of Valtrex. I take it every day but still get outbreaks constantly. I also noticed when this started happening, I started getting a burning feeling in my back. Like a tingling sensation, almost a vibrating feeling. On the left side of my back. I've been wondering if it's the virus causing this symptom. Other than that, my health has been the same. Please help me. Has anyone experienced this?! I'm getting so depressed. I honestly would be happy if I could even decrease my outbreaks to ONE a month. I can't handle having them every damn week!

Hi Yycgirl, welcome to the site.  Stress is usually a trigger for most people and for others it can be poor diet, lack of sleep, illness, or even a new medication.  If you don't believe it's any of those, there may be some hormonal fluctuations going on inside.  When is the last time you had a physical?  Maybe get a complete check up to see if there is anything going on.  Hope this helps.

      Hey @Zrozpaczona9 that looks like folliculitis to me, that’s independent of the question of herpes. The doctor is wrong in the sense that a negative IgG test is beyond reasonable doubt that you do not have herpes. It is a small percentage of people for which a false negative occurs. The doctor is right to take a swab to increase your confidence that there’s no herpes present. I’m sure you’ll have your result soon.

      Hey @WilsoInAus miałam dzisiaj wizytę u dermatologa, gdyż dostałam zmian w pachwinie, w trakcie wakacji nad morzem. Udałam sie tam ze zmianami w postaci strupów. Powiedział ze nie można wykluczyć opryszczki mimo negatywnego wyniku Hsv igg i zalecił wymaz z pochwy na Hsv i inne choroby. Wytłumaczyłam mu że zmiany zamieniają się w strup, ale nie ma w nich płynu, więc zalecił badanie śluzu pochwy na hsv PCR, zastanawiam się czy ma to sens, i czy wirusa można wykryć na podstawie tego badania w wydzielin z szyjki macicy. Z góry dziekuje za pomoc

      In this forum we will discuss does lume work Lume is paraben-free and uses several natural ingredients like Aloe barbadensis leaf juice, tapioca starch, and Maranta arundinacea root powder (also known as arrowroot powder) to control odor and sweat. One of the key Lume deodorant ingredients is mandelic acid, an AHA found in skin care products, which also has an antibacterial effect.

      Ibuprofen medicine is a painkiller. Can you take ibuprofen on an empty stomach  Some people take medicine empty stomach which is not good for our health. Because painkiller kind of medicine is very strong and can harm your liver. Medicine makes many strong ingredients. like Lactose, corn starch, hypromellose, sodium starch glycolate, colloidal anhydrous silica, magnesium stearate, sucrose, talc, titanium dioxide (E171), and carnauba wax.
