It's official....I'm going crazy....My OB finally healed as of about two days ago, bam! Two more bumps in another place today and I'm supposed to go see my out of state bf next weekend...I'm desperate for any advice here....I have GSV-1, I thought this was supposed to go away and not be as bad! WHAT THE HELL????

The same thing happened to me with my first reoccurence. Although with my first outbreak, when I was first infected, it went completed away within days. When I mean completely away, I mean nothing, no irritation and I was able to sex a week later.

Unfortunately, when it came back 7 months later, it lingered. It would heal and then come back over and over for almost 2 months. As soon as I was able to get it under control anbd have sedx, it would creep up on me, even if just redness and irritation. Twice during those 2 months it reached the stage os forming a "pimple" or lesion. Anyway, I found that ice works if you ice it forever and very frequently. It takes a lot of time. Also, I would take lots of lysine. And if you are in a real bind, take 2,000 mg of valtrex in the morning and at anight for one or two days. I think hsv1 responds better to a higher dose.

I'm so sorry your time with your honey may not turn out the way you wanted. I know with me, as soon as I got this, I end up giving oral sex all the time and getting nothing in return. Thanks ghsv1! Now my jaw is sore and I never get orgasms. I am afraid to even give myself one.

BUT almost evveryone I talked to online who has this has turned out ok many years later. I think our bods just need to get it in check. The journal articles I read, even foriegn ones in korean!, all said that hsv1 rarely reoccurs on the genitals. I hope that is true in the future.

I'm going to try that, I have been taking 1000 mg each day for three days. It has gotten better. I'm gonna try 2000 for the next two days and see if that helps. I'm so angry all the time about this. If I could just get it under control I think I would be ok or at least able to deal with it. Today a bunch of my friends are going to the lake and I don't want to go because I don't want to be out in the sun and make this worse, I'm trying to get it to heal before next friday....that pisses me off even more. I'm an adventurous person always going going going. This stupid virus is taking over my life.

      So to begin with, I am 26 and have been with the same partner for 8 years. I have only been with three people ever, one completely protected and the other we were both our firsts. I got this rash on my but while pregnant and my doctor said she was testing for it and I'm so confused. I've had two babies, breastfeed, and never had anything as much as a cold sore. Does this look like something anyone has experienced? I used fragrant soap down there and am hoping it's contact dermatitis or a heat rash from sweating and gaining so much weight.  Advice would be helpful. I'm stressing out a bit as I am pregnant.

      Hi, it is me again, apologies for the recent influx of posts. I've noticed a slightly raised area on the middle of my top lip with what i feel are some bumps. i do have a habit of biting my lips a fair bit and this area is frequented by my teeth. I haven't noticed any unusual/abnormal tingling or burning or pain sensations. the photos are a bit difficult to focus on them but do these seem like the start of cold sores? note: I will be visiting the drs for an std checkup in the coming week. https://imgur.com/gallery/YLVA5us

      To give everyone confidence that it wasn’t herpes related and conclude as the doctor did that it was a dermatitis issue to refer back to the dermatologist to continue with investigations.

      Both a dermatologist and infectious disease doctor prescribed him HSV medicine. Why would they do that if this isnt "what herpes really does"?
