Recurrent Outbreak has lasted for 4 weeks

Recommended Posts

I don’t know what to do. Prior to having this recurrent outbreak I’ve been on valtrex as a daily suppressant for a year and a half and have had only one outbreak that was gone in a few days. This hasn’t gone away. Even my initial outbreak was gone after 2 weeks. I finally went to my doctor and got it cauterized with silver nitrate and that hasn’t seemed to help. I had valtrex, lysine, vitamins c, zinc, and e. I have also started applying tea free oil on the areas for the last 2 days. Any other suggestions. It scans over and then won’t heal underneath. Scabs fall off then they are back. This doesn’t seem normal!

Check you don't have any unrelated bacterial infection (i.e. urine infection), that would "distract" your immune system from fighting hsv.

How much valtrex are you taking daily and what pattern of intake do you have?
