Acyclovor after an outbreak starts

Recommended Posts

Vectad

So I was diagnosed in July with type 2.  I had one mild outbreak after the initial one a week later.  Since then I have stopped taking acyclovor and have been treating in natural ways.  Now 4 months later I am having another outbreak.  I waited a week to see if it would get better on It's own but instead it spread.  I just started taking 3 acyclovor a day and I am planning on continuing for a week.  My question is am I prolonging the outbreak somehow by taking it now instead of when the first signs appeared a week ago?  I have read I should have taken it from the beginning signs.  

 

Thanks.

The horse may have bolted and the virus has caused the lesion and has probably itself gone now leaving behind a healing sore; however there is no issue talking antivirals now, but it will not aid the healing process.

Your body is all you need to repair the lesion. The only thing that has been shown to help is to keep the body's repair cells focused on the area by covering it with a small amount of silicon gel such as used for scar treatment.

Thanks for the tip.  The meds haven't had an effect so I think your right.  Afraid to put anything on it since I hear you should let the air get to it.  Tried some pure aloe when it started and wondered if that made it worse but for sure it didn't help.

Usually the meds are more effective taking them as soon as you get symptoms.  I never took meds for my first ob as it was minor but also after 3 days from first symptom and dr said no point

      No Western Blot. High positives with both IgG & IgM tests plus symptoms .

      I doubt it is HSV. I agree with them. If anything I would look at other STDs for throat symptoms. Make sure you are clear from everything

      I went to see clinic and she said they only take a swab if I have blisters. She was very dismissive of everything I said - I heard somewhere that GPS don’t do blood tests anymore for herpes cause it was causing significant mental health problems due to being incurable  I’m ambivalent about blood tests as they don’t seem accurate and whatever answer I get there’s still a part of me that will be unsure and will fuel anxiety   i thought it was difficult to get genital herpes in throat?But the flu like symptoms afterwards was nothing I’ve experienced before and happened the day after. Would this be as serious as genital herpes ?    I just find it hard to sit and wait for any bump on my vagina and it’s all I can think about
