i have been having my first outbreak for a week already. There are alot of sores, that are red and open still but dont seem to be weeping too much, and a couple of them have already scabbed over, quite a few of them have scabbed over and fallen off but the sore is still there underneath, so those ones seem to be healing very slowly..is that normal? i also have very swollen labia, like swollen shut pretty much, to pee i ahve to hold them apart. I have been taking lysine since last friday so for 4 days now, i dont know if they have been helping because i cant compare them to an outbreak when i have not used them. anyways this is turning into a novel, i was just wondering if anyone knows if these symptoms sound like they will heal soon? my birthday is in ten days and i really dont wanna be all sore and uncomfortable for it :cry: if anyone has any suggestions on how to speed up the healing, i am also going to the doctors tomorrow, so maybe they will give me a prescription? will that help speed it up?

It might take a good 2 weeks for your sores to heal up completely. I wish you the best.

I used dynamiclear and after a day put tea tree oil and took loads of lysine. But I don't have much experience as I just got over my first bad ob and it lasted about 2 weeks until it was completely healed.

      In my case, the symptoms of keratitis appeared suddenly, while I was waiting for the bus on a bus stop. I had a feeling like something burst in my left eye. The eye immediately became red, very watery, painful and I couldn't look at the light. There was a hospital nearby, so in half an hour I had an appointment with an ophthalmologist who diagnosed keratitis and gave me a prescription for some eye drops. The instruction for the eye drops mentioned that this medicine was used against keratitis caused  the herpes virus. That's how I found out that my keratitis was a viral one. For the next 15 years I had relapses of the keratitis. I was lucky that the corneal clouding was far enough away from the pupils and didn't affect my vision. Since I started using the garlic solution 18 years ago, I've successfully been preventing any keratitis relapses which sometimes try to come back. In case of viral keratitis there's no discharge from the eyes. If you have some discharge, it may possibly mean that you have a bacterial infection which should be treated with antibiotics. The problem is in finding the right drug for your particular case, the particular antibiotics that can kill the infection in your eyes. Garlic has both anti-viral and antibacterial properties, so you can try this method, it won't do you any harm anyway. Make the garlic solution with water as described in my post above. Apply it to the closed eyelids every hour during the day and every 2 hours during the night. Two days will be enough to see if garlic has any affect in your case, whether it makes their condition any better. Try this and let me know how it goes, write to me at  vasilenko.igor@inbox.ru Kind regards, Igor Vasilenko

      Man, I think you need to meet people before you disclose to them. Having said that, I've disclosed via text and that worked for me with my ex girlfriend. We were together almost two years. Gotta get out there and take a few hits, to iron out your approach.

      Shit now I'm worried.   My partner had no symptoms, and never has and does not know status.   Has gone to be tested too.  Recently cleared of other std's but honestly we never discussed HSV.

      Good question- someone here maybe Wilso will be able to elaborate on this, but I do believe there needs to be a certain amount of copies detected before it can be infectious.
