First outbreak - pain relief help

Hi vanillamist,

I am sorry that you haven't received a reply yet and that you are having to go through this. We are all here to help you, so don't feel alone.

To start with, you can find a good collection of tips and information here:

:arrow:Typical cycle of an outbreak

:arrow:Pain Relief Remedies

:arrow:Herpes Treatments that can help

The good news is that the first outbreak is normally always the worst, it WILL heal and it is likely to be far less severe if you ever have a recurrence.

During a first episode, the immune system develops antibodies and other weapons against the virus. During a recurrence, then, this "immune memory" can help to fight off infection more quickly.

As a result, as time goes on there are usually fewer sores, they heal faster, and the outbreak is less painful. Some people never experience another recurrence.

You can find more useful info by clicking on the links to the right and our members have some great advice to share too.

Stay strong, we are here if you need us!

Hey, I'm suffering my first OB too. I'm on week 3. The first week it seemed to get better, then I got a whole new and different crop week 2 that has been itching and swollen like hell. I'm on my 3rd bottle of Acyclovir, as well as starting Lysine (3000mg a day) I used an entire bottle of H-Balm even though it seemed to help the pain and itching, in my case, my symptoms seemed to worsen while using it.

I got some Aveeno Baby Diaper Rash ointment to get me through the worst days of itching. It has 13% zinc and oatmeal. It seemed to get better after day 2 of using it. Now I am taking Epsom baths twice a day and using Purell after the baths. Almost all my swelling is gone and the Purell stop the itching almost instantly. I put just a little on with a cotton ball in the worst itchy areas.

Hope this helps.

It seems like there is so little that is actually known about how to handle this virus.

I had a very small and symptom free first outbreak- the symptoms healed and it went away with very little angst. My physician said I could expect my first outbreak to be my worst- but today- I felt symptoms returning- and I am having multiple blisters.

      @Talx2520 based on what you say, Im not sure the odds exceed 50/50 that you have genital herpes. If you take a random genital infection from vaginal sex then about 95% of the time it’s HSV-2. How long after the episode was the blood test?

      Thanks for the response! My first suspected outbreak was definitely painful. Started with what felt like a UTI, then noticed what looked like ulcers starting 1.5 days after unprotected sex. Never scabbed over, but I had a horrible itch that lasted 2  weeks (didn't feel like yeast). Given my symptoms, I've pretty sure its genital herpes, but I mean it could have been some allergy (I had extremely rough intercourse in the middle of the wilderness, sorry if that is tmi lol and maybe naive of me to think it was a weird plant). Both my mom, sister, and grandma get coldsores and I feel like i've totally shared drinks with them even during their outbreaks. Can't remember if I ever had one though. I am not totally sure how I should go about disclosing in general. Should I mention I had a full panel and hsv-1 came up positive and that I am not sure where it is? I really wish I had just gotten it swabbed, but couldn't afford it without insurance at the time. I was under the impression that if it was herpes, it would come back and I could get it swabbed, but I realize now that with HSV-1 that isnt always the case.

      @viralfrog given your symptoms do not react to any known antiviral doesn thatvsuggest these are not herpes lesion?  Lets apply Occam’s razor here.

      @Lulupazoola I have tried with a straw but it's difficult to create enough suction if the straw is deep enough in your throat  After drinking 6g from a shotglass I immediately drink a glass of water to dilute it down the throat.  Little update: blisters, redness and lethargy are back today. I'm still off the antivirals completely and my outbreaks are not any worse than usual for now. That's interesting, it seems I don't react at all to Acyclovir.

      Technically speaking, someone with a strong immune system could have a mild initial outbreak. Normally, they would remain mild and decrease over time. However, if you put yourself in a situation later that gives a big hit to your immune system (e.g. binge drinking, other illness, no sleep etc.) you could have a bigger outbreak as a result.
