Valtrex

I was diagnosed about 2 years ago and never really had a bad OB bit always little pimples and sometimes burning. It never goes away and I always aware I don’t feel normal. Has anyone ever switched drugs from Valtrex and noticed a difference with something else?

How was the diagnosis made? Did you have a swab of the pimples you describe or another type of lesion. Maybe you had a blood test?

They just swapped a cut that was inside to detect. Never took a culture of the pimples because didn’t have at the time. I just can never really tell when I am having an OB and the pimple seems to get red then almost go away but never a blister.. I just want to find an antiviral that clears me up, so was thinking maybe Valtrex didn’t work for me

I think you may need to consider that these pimples may not be related to your herpes infection. The fact that Valtrex seems ineffective in this regard at least lends a little further weight in that direction. Might be best to consult your doctor when you have a set of these pimples maybe for a swab and examination in case another cause is at play.

      (For my case: i am not diagnosed herpes. I had genital warts. 
      I can tell her a sex partner was diagnosed with HPV, and i pretty surely have it and that's why i do it with boxer short the next months. Hm.)   https://herpesopportunity.com/downloads/herpes-opportunity-disclosure-handout.pdf https://www.cdc.gov/std/herpes/stdfact-herpes-detailed.htm

      How long after diagnosis did you start to have sex again? How did he get it on the lips?

      Hi,  I was wondering if you could describe your outbreaks or how much time it passed before you where correctly diagnosed. Or your overall experience. I am freaking out and just wearing my underwear feels uncomfortable.  How did they diagnosed you? Thank you in advanced

      I THINK this will benefit us. If the FDA allows more aggressive research in the deadliest virus programs, such as HIV gene editing, then off-targeting and other safety issues might already be solved before Dr. Jerome  starts editing hsv in humans.
