after meds bump unchanged

Recommended Posts

mandy

I noticed a bump and so started my Valtrex- I have completed the meds and the bump is completely unchanged. I have one large bump- doesn't look like a blister, or a pimple, really only hurts when I touch it- I am a little itchy but it just doesn't feel like this is an outbreak but I always play it VERY safe as my husband of 21 years has never comtracted it. I know I should go to the doctor but that eats up most of the day. I'm going to try hot compressed to see if that helps. ANy ideas?:confused:

it takes a few days if you are not taking the medicine on a daily basis for it to kick in and you to start noticing a difference. how long did you take the meds for so far?

you can always add lysine to your routine to help you out.

the script is five days. Usually it helps right away. This time nothing, no change at all.

How do you take lysine?

Wow, we share deeply personal stuff here...so the hot compresses made it look like a really big pimple which burst, there was a tiny bit of pus and a bit of blood. Maybe it WAS an ingrown hair.

      It should be noted that the Gates foundation was part of a venture capital group that gave Genocea $30 million in support of their vaccine development efforts in the period when their lead candidate was an HSV-2 therapeutic vaccine (GEN-003): https://xconomy.com/boston/2012/10/10/genocea-snags-30m-from-gates-foundation-vcs-for-new-vaccines/ They have also provided 30 million dollars to the University of Washington's HSV efforts.  This time specifically on research into whether suppressing HSV results in a reduction in HIV transmission: https://honeycomb.click/topic/77503-donations-to-fred-hutch-center/page/21/?tab=comments#comment-493474  Far from inactive in HSV research they provide significant funding in the context of reducing HIV transmission.  It's a well established fact that genital HSV greatly increases the probably contracting HIV from an infected partner.

      Human trials starting next year?  Not even close. It will be several years.

      Sounds like X-vaxs' biggest concern is prevention and erradication secondary..... 🤦🏻‍♂️

      It may be small scale but at least it shows me that I'm by far not the only one who isn't willing to disclose to casual partners anymore. The damage for oneself is too high to make it worth it imho: - seduction becomes difficult as guy if they know in advance - you're very likely to become a gossip object if it happens within your social circle - you get abandoned before it even starts to get intense - you end up lonely and depressed after being abandoned for such a reason Still, that doesn't answer the question if it's better to disclose properly out of nowhere during the relationship or wait for the symptoms to appear and pretend to be surprised and fake the doctor diagnosis afterwards. At the moment I think the true disclosure would be less likely to be accepted by the partner, but in case it works it would feel better in the end because there's less of a secret kept in the long run... and of course there's lower moral burden when disclosing earlier because you're handing over responsibility of risk exposure to the partner.
