Aciclovir not working

Recommended Posts

Just existing

I recently post that I have HSV1 on my genitals. I'm done with my viral medication but the lesions are still there. I'm not sure if it's still herpes. The first single sore now looks like a rash on the side of my vulva. Whenever I'm looking at it my vaginal opening has white discharge. I think that since the lesion is on the "moist" part, it's not healing. And aciclovir didn't heal it. I had it three times a day for 10 days. I'm trying to see it using mirror and now it's hurting. I don't know what to do. Any advice? Thank You so much.

Acyclovir usually needs to be taken 5 times a day, not 3, in the case of outbreaks.
" It has poor bioavailability of about 20% and a short half life, which necessitates frequent dosing. "
Have you tried valacyclovir? Or another doctor?

      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
