Recently had my first big outbreak (I had a scare of what I thought could have been one last month but even though I got swabbed asap tested it came back negative). After about a week into the outbreak on my genitals I then had an oral outbreak (never had a cold sore before at least to my awareness). While I am on antivirals (taken the day the cold sore showed and the genitals have started clearing this oral one just seems to be getting worse. The nurse said it was likely HSV-2 but I am still waiting for my results. Does anyone have any recommendations on how to cope with this oral outbreak? I am currently staying at my boyfriends' house and am worried it will travel from inner lip/mouth to be more visible, the idea of his parents seeing it fills me with dread.
Also, any good websites/blogs/youtubers to follow to give me a little more hope to this all.
Does anybody have any suggestions on how you deal with pain at work or when you are out? I have hsv2 I am in the beginning of a break out this one is bad. I can’t really afford to call in so if anybody has any tips I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks.
I'm losing more hair than usual and not on any suppressive meds.
Was wondering if anyone else experienced this hsv2 diagnosis or even hsv1 diagnoses
If so how did you solve the problem?
I have had HSV2 since I was 18 nearly 29 now for the first 7 years I didn’t have any obs no prodomes basically forgot I had this virus near enough. I turned 25 and I started getting out breaks almost monthly.
i started suppression in May 2016 acyclovir twice a day it seemed to work I haven’t had a single blister since starting however I started to get constant prodomes in my legs I’ve read up on the nerve pain and it doesn’t sound like the typical herpes nerve pain it’s just shooting pains and often goes to other areas apart from my legs. I also started getting a constant itch but I examined with a strong light and I couldn’t see anything no cuts no sores notning.
Anyway I live in the UK but wanted to try vavyclvior it is very expensive they won’t prescribe it’s cost me £97 for a months worth but I couldn’t deal with the itch and shooting pains so I thought let me give it a ago.
i have been taken 1 gram for the last week and nearly all my symptoms have completely gone and I was on my period which usually makes it worse. I am happy about this but im worried about keeping up the cost but more so the side effects. Is this dose safe ? I have googled a lot of things and read about physcosis from Valtrex depression etc I am very worried about this. I didn’t have any side effects from being on Aycivlior for nearly 2 years..
any advice is appreciated
