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?

      More confusion! So the results have come back for both of the partners that I've been with over the last 3-4 years and they are both negative for type 1 and type 2. Where do I go next? Any advice?

      please look through the forum in exact and careful detail and inform yourself of less than usual circumstances to cover yourself.

      auto inoculation is rare and it can happen. off objects is debated but some people claim it happens. some people have experienced it happens easily.

      so you know practice good hygiene. i personal think use a heated towel rail and make sure your towels are fully hot and dry. there were studies in the 80's showing it can live on towels for 75 hours. The herpes association say most experts agree it cannot be caught off a towel. That is most experts not all. Some people end up with it on their body and one has to wonder how? Towels I would guess.

      Things that tend to stay kinda wet or so on. cups are another one that fit that i think.

      I remember being at university once and being in the bathroom while a girl was on the phone to her friend.She thought she had a bite on her face but clear to me someone with herpes had kissed her on the cheek recently, it didnt look typical just her skin peeling. 

      I am not an expert though or a doctor so do your own research.

      Update: The creme that contains the tetrapodal zinc oxide still isn't available at Gorch Fock Apotheke Kiel. I called them today: same status as last year and they have no further information on when and if it will be available again.

      Lilian, the zinc acetate we are talking about here is different from the tetrapodal zinc oxide that you are mentioning. But thanks for the reminder. The ointment that contains the tetrapodal zinc oxide still isn't available at Gorch Fock Apotheke Kiel. I called them today: same status as last year and they have no further information on when and if it will be available again.

      I've had neg swabs but I am sure you'll get it. Follow the process. I haven't read the thread in exact detail, but if you have documentation of doctors mishandling your case when you get/ if you get a poss inform them in writing as well as the medical board I think.  Under diagnosis is as problematic as false pos and reducing transmission is good.
