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?

      If your eye was affected by HSV you'd be in intense pain and you'd be in the hospital on an antiviral drip.  It is likely a coincidence of timing, and something that you shouldn't overthink.  Definitely worth getting checked anyway since the eye is a sensitive area.

      I found this website today. You can now pre order Viblok but no potential delivery date is given. The company is in Florida and I called but got a recorded message. https://www.viblok.com/

      Here's something interesting. You can now pre-order Viblok.  However, the website does not indicate when it will be available. https://www.viblok.com/

      Hey all. I had an STD check while pregnant with my now 3 yo and it was perfectly clean, hadn’t had another one until a few months ago   I was sexually assulted about 4 months ago. Because of that I asked for all STD testing. My first HSV 2 IGG score came back at 4.00, I requested another 2 weeks later and it’s now a 3.22 IGG. Should I take this as for sure positive or would it warrant a WB at all? Is it normal for numbers to go down like that?   Ive had NO symptoms whatsoever, at any time     Also, condoms, guys what are the best ones that feel as natural as possible?? Any ideas?
