New Diagnosis, Natural Remedies, and Valtrex Side Effects

Recommended Posts

JTHoney

Hi everyone! I'm new here, and just got through my initial outbreak (it was horrible!). My biggest question is who uses Valtrex (or its sister drugs) and has anyone experienced some of the worse side effects? It decreased my urination greatly, to the point where I don't want to take it ever again if I don't have to. Does anyone have any experience with this side effect and how to help it? Does anyone successfully get through flare-ups without meds? I have googled numerous natural remedies, but I would love to hear someone's first-hand experience. Thanks in advance!

I didnt have the side effect of not being able to urinate, but i did read where someone on this forum had that problem.  I dont remember what she did, sorry.  Mostly, all of us have different things we do to try and get relief. Taking L-lysine helped me for about a year before it quit working, so i felt that was worthwhile.  I am not on the "cyclovirs".  They dont seem to work for me.  I am trying hi dose vitamin C right now.  It hasnt been long enough to say anything about it yet, but i am staying with it and keeping track.

      literally cold sores just make my whole mouth area numb and in pain, especially when i eat food or take a shower. it's super hard too when you are trying not to break open the scab but daily activities tend to make it worse. luckily, i don't get headaches or anything so bless your souls, just a lil runny nose and lots of pain.   i have found some natural remedies/OTCs ease the pain. ice for example always makes it feel more numb, but i have to wait until the scab isn't super delicate.   i made a parody to 7rings by ariana grande destigmatizing cold sores-- give it a chance:) and if you like it, repost with the hashtag #realslimsorechallenge with your own tips to shorten coldsores everywhere! they friggin suck!!!!! we gotta be here for eachother:)
