Not sure what to do now that my prescription has run out.

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have had a few different prescriptions for Valtrax since my diagnosis 2 years ago. The most recent was with a Dermetologist after I made an appointment for an outbreak I had on my thigh and I was unsure at the time if this was HSV. This prescription has just expired and I now have to make another appointment with the Dermatology clinic to have it refilled. However I am currently not insured and the visit is going to cost me $200. I had an earlier prescription with planned parenthood but this also expired long ago. Now I am wondering what will be the cheapest way to get a new prescription. Unfortunately the planned Parenthood in my area has a huge waiting list for check ups and I want to have my prescription fillled over the coming days. Just wondering if anybody could offer any advice or suggestions here? 

 

Many thanks!

I got HSV tested through stdcheck.com and paid around $55 for the single test. When I got my results they also offered a free doctors consultation as well as prescription services. So that could be an option for you. Before you try it, ask if they provide ongoing RX refills.

When you order your test you choose a labcorp or quest lab near you and you just go there for them to draw your blood. They do IGG type testing, you can purchase HSV1, HSV2 or both. You can just use your first name initial and last name. Then when they email you your positive results, they offer you the consultation and the prescription.

Ok cool, thank you. I will do this. Did you have to wait long for results of blood test?

Powder or pills?

Is quality reliable? Did you run any lab tests to check purity?

      Your symptoms and photos match exactly what I've been dealing with on and off since October 2018 after I had a a really bad flu that brought about tingling on my lips. It felt like a cold sore was going to develop, but a bunch of tiny white bumps showed up that doctors have yet to fully explain what it is. I also have a constant feeling of a dry, chapped upper lip. A few weeks later the white tongue showed up. I'm also currently dealing with a change in taste in my mouth. I eventually tested positive fro HSV1 months later, but I don't know where on my body it is. I also have discoloration on my the tip of my penis. One dentist told me I had bacteria covering my tongue, and another dentist said nothing looked suspicious. I also get the cut on my tongue.  Prepare yourself for a journey of doctors telling you that you look normal when, in fact, you do not.

      @CheekyMunkey there is absolutely no way you, me or anyone has any chance of diagnosing what issues inside the mouth might be. There are simply too many issues that create similar looking outcomes. All I can say is that issues inside the mouth are way, way less likely to be related to herpes compared to if you were having issues on the lips.

      Hi mate.  Thank you for responding. I do feel better but I think the oral might be the issue. I was looking at my tongue and it looks white. Well whiter than normal. Also about 3 days ago I had a really sharp pain in my tongue which lasted like seconds. Later in the day when I saw it it had like a line cut into it. Is it a lesion? I have no pain in my tongue at all, no fluid filled sores but I noticed that Its shape isn't right. Like a bits missing on the tip of the right hand side. I've added two pics. It looks whiter in the pics then it actually is but I noticed red dots all down near the tip. Could that be something? Herpes? Also, where the tongue goes out of shape there is nothing on that side. I did burn my mouth on some pizza on the day I felt that sharp pain so not sure if that's got something to do with it.  https://ibb.co/zhphnMD https://ibb.co/G0pPRLh Thanks in advance.

      Personally, I'm still wondering how likely is it China will cure HSV before the States does ?...
