Words of encouragement please? will this get better

Bring me Hope

Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed via culture and blood test 5 months ago and have continual outbreaks meaning that I have 5-6 days from the time an outbreak heals to seeing new pimples.  The worst symptom is aching legs and lower back.  I am on valocyclovir 1 gram /day suppressively and 2x/day during an outbreak...which is OFTEN.  I have a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise.  single mom to 4 so that is stressful.  Take 4g Vit C, l-lysine, per day, and  a mushroom blend for immune system.  While the first outbreak was the worst,  i'm still getting continual outbreaks and it's so hard to imagine living like this forever.  I need encouragement.  I would do anything in the world to have a couple months between outbreaks.  How can I protect future partner/loved one when my outbreaks are continual?   Seems like a lot of peopple are on valocyclovir instead of acylovir...wonder what the difference is or if I should switch....

I had back to back BO's too.  Ive had a week free now.  Yay!  Oregano oil worked so well on my last BO.  I already had a lesion and was getting the tingling for a new one.  I immediately put oil of oregano diluted with fractionated coconut oil all over my ass and the tingling stopped immediately.  No further progression.  I had a little BO after that which i treated with more oregano oil and it was done in 2 days.  Fractionated coconut oil goes into your skin really fast and is not a greasy mess.  I also gave up my homemade granola. Nuts, seeds, coconut, oats, all bad.  I am taking vit c and lysine, olive leaf and neem 2 x day, a multi, vit D.  I had been taking some supplements before, but not the OL and neem.  Thats my story so far.  Really recommend the OOO, avoiding high arginine foods, trying to lower your sugar consumption.  Im also avoiding wheat.  Keep trying things.  Antivirals dont work 4 me, so im glad to learn of other things to try.  If u read around this forum, u will see some people have had really good luck with certain things.  Its an ongoing battle, thats for sure, but if u get on the right track with something that helps, it really is gratifying.  Good luck with the fight.  Im so sorry u have to carry this.

      Good morning. My name is Marlena and I come from Poland. Sorry, my English is average. For two years I have been in a relationship with a man, for a year and a half I have been struggling with intimate problems. On average, my intimate condition is getting worse every month. Then I feel itching, redness, swelling around the entrance to the vagina, small blisters (not always). Most often it is only red and swollen, itches and then disappears. This state lasts 3-4 days. I come from a small town, doctors don't know what it is. They say it's 'skin irritation'. They prescribe moisturizing creams with lactic acid, probiotics. It doesn't help. I did a blood test for HSV on my own, which is very expensive in Poland, but it does not separate HSV1 from HSV2. The doctor, when he shows these results, says that it's not herpes, but irritation. I would like to add that in the past I suffered from herpes on the lips, then it was a 'scab'. There has never been a scab in an intimate area. Sometimes there are blisters that last 1-2 days, but not always. So what do high blood test results mean? I would like to add that in Poland people do not talk about the HSV virus. It's just that sometimes someone has it on their lips and that's it. Results translation: IgM HSV 1/2: questionable IgG HSV 1/2: result above the measuring range https://files.fm/f/4cpu7uee4

      This is my first time posting here. Im generally pretty anxious when it comes to anything to do with health conditions etc. For context I have had jock itch and fungal infections previously on my buttcrack. I have had 0 new sexual partners and I am not concerned about my girlfriend cheating at all. 4 days ago my balls began itching and red pretty much all over, as you can see some general flakeyness and what looks to be a lesion I noticed on Monday when I checked them out. My partner and I do get cold sores from time to time so the anxious part of me is concerned this could be herpes, but at the same time could be some sort of fungal infection. My doctor cant see me until tomorrow so I just have to worry until then. There is no pain and nothing on the penis or anywhere else, just general itchiness. Any ideas if this is herpes or not?

      Yes, but every married person who I found out about that has this waited 6-8 months into the relationship to disclose it. But maybe you're right. If I had told her 6-7 months in, she'd still have Googled it and flipped out, and maybe it would have been harder then. I don't know. I don't see myself going through this level of pain and rejection so easily next time. I really don't. I'm taking the meds. I use protection. It's been almost a decade since I've had it so I'm not worried about shedding or passing it on so easily. British studies confirm that the first 2 years are the most contagious and we're passed that. I'm just over this. I've never been in so much emotional pain in my life.
