Recommended Posts


Hi I recently diagnosed with hsv2 via swab test and taking acyclovir for a month and still feel some pain in inside my penis don't know if it is due to hsv 2 because initially I got pain during my urination and went to doctor and doctor took a swab test and confirmed it is hsv2 I got one small blister on top of my penis and inflammation and red swelling when I open my penis and see inside(urethra- where urine comes out) after taking MEDICATION the blister disappeared in few days but initially doctor suggested 7 days treatment with acyclovir which I completed though I felt loss of appetite, leg pains and thought it is due to the hsv and after completing the first dose after 1 or 2 days the swelling inside my penis started again and doctor suggested me start the MEDICATION again and now I completed my 2nd dose too but the swelling didn't gone and itching not gone doctor suggesting me to take valtrex for another 30 days as suppressive therapy but I didn't know the swelling and itching inside the penis is due to hsv. I also took doxycycline parallel with my first dose. Can anybody please help me?

      hello all, update... so the white ulcer inside started around january 4... and today it is still there... no burning while i pee, just a constant mild irritation feel, no other symptoms i went back to get retested 2/12 so 2.5 months after exposure... including HSV, HIV, gon, chlam, everything came back negative... the doctor thinks it's some form of chlamydia, he gave my doxy for 10 days is it too soon to tell if i have HSV? is it possible to have an ulcer inside the urethra and be fungal or bacterial?

      Probably not many.  I'm going to change my twitter symbol to the copper ribbon at least.

      okay! I guess I will just start at the basic dosage of vitamin C and go up every week little ? I take 1500 mg of super lysine like the bottle says and it still gives me gas and diarrhea. hoping it will pass if not I'll drop down to 2 a day! I really appreciate the advice! i know we would all.do ANYTNING to not have OB  at the moment idc about stigmas od boyfriends or dating or sex....I just care about FEELING healthy in my own skin. this is my one and only life

      That sounds like a good place to begin.  The lysine worked really well for me for about a year and a half.  Then things got steadily worse for me and nothing worked until vitamin C.  My immune system is not that great even tho i take care of myself, so u may have good luck if u have a decent one.  With the vitamin c, u must 1) take it at intervals throughout the day, not all at once 2) dont increase the amount u r taking too fast 3) it will give u gas at higher doses and even diarrhea if u go crazy with it. These r signs to lower your dose!  If u can just control your OB's with vitamin c and lysine or anything else, maybe a cure will finally become available.
