Same here,With few ?

Recommended Posts


I move to Az 6 Months ago in hopes of starting a new life and finding a partner to live the rest of my life with,and I will admit yesterday win I realized I probably have H I thought my life was over,Today is a little better with the feelings but all the pain is still there,

Some questions I have are,

with all the reading I have been doing no one ever says how long the OB s last?

Like I said I am new to the area and don't have a Doctor yet I am temted to go to the emergency room at the locale Hospital,Or should I find a doc or clinic of some kind?

and do any of these creams really work?

And help would be appreciated

I'll try to answer and tell you what I can

I went straight to my dr. THere is probably a minor emergency clinic you could go to and they might put you on a medication like valtrex to help the ob go away quicker. I would definitely suggest going to a doctor whether it is the emergency room or a minor emergency clinic. You need to be tested to be sure and once the doctor knows whats wrong he/she will help you. You need to do what you are most comfortable with and in time it will get better. The outbreaks vary in how long they last, but mine was about 5 days. Good luck and I am so sorry to hear.

You may also want to try a planned parenthood type clinic. They can usually do the HSV tests for fairly cheap or even for free, and will most likely have better info than a clinic or ER doctor.

I cant comment on treatment because I'm from UK but typical initial OB is 5-21 days.

      Ok so here’s my background.  I hade my first outbreak genitially about 2 months ago.  I got swabed positive for GHSV1. My blood tests were neg so I am assuming a new infection but who knows if I had it or not.  I been reading on here and other research. So I got oregano oil and started to use it on my lower back with coconut oil to dilute it.  I was putting the combo on and would use a couple large bandaids to apply it and keep it in place overnight.  Did it for about 5 days.  I peeled off my bandaids two days ago and had two sores where the sticky part is about an inch apart.  Does the oregano oil attract the virus to cause an outbreak like this in the spot on lower back or are the sores from irritation of possibly too much oregano oil?  Anyone have a clue if this is an outbreak and caused by putting the oil there?
