When do the OB stop!!!

Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed in April, and I swear I get 1-2 outbreaks a month, if I don’t get a full outbreak I still get the symptoms as if one was coming on. I’m on suppressive therapy as well. I’m so over this!

I take 500mg daily. Not sure if that’s too low or not

I'm going through the same emotions. I was contracted on July 9 and my first recurrent OB has been ongoing since August 9. The 4th spot just appeared yesterday, while the first two have already scarred. The active lesions are itchy and not very painful, but it feels like a constant torture. -_- An interesting note is that the locations of the lesions are almost exactly the same as during the initial OB.

On the first OB the doctor prescribed me 800mg acyclovir twice a day and I got some joint pain during the treatment so I decided not to get on it again. Hard to tell if that treatment worked for me or not, but if it did, very slowly so. I'm now taking only natural supplements, so that may have triggered this second OB as well. Just hoping that as the months go by, it will get easier.

Which antiviral are you taking? CDC has the recommended suppressive treatment doses listed here: https://www.cdc.gov/std/tg2015/herpes.htm

Wishing you strength.

You have to boost your immune system, and start eating lysine rich foods, no arginine foods at all. If you can get your hands on ozone olive oil drosolutions sells for good price and it’s good quality.

I wouldn’t go the structured silver long term but overall your strategy is good. Your immunity is key.

      And yes i have never done a hsv1 and i think i prefer not to do it cause if i have also the antibodies i would make myself more crazy about the topic that i am already... i have that in mind always of 2016 when i had the discomfort tmdown there and then i saw blisters on ex boyfriend WEIRD @WilsoInAus

      @WilsoInAus it means a lot that u answered to me! Yes you are right i have been months like this.  Cause at first how does my gyn prescribe me a topica aciclovir when she told me she did not saw anything and then the second time she saws “blisters” which i dont and she prescribes valtrex oral.  Then i do the exams and are really onfusing. the dermatologist told me he did not see anything of herpes and also another gyn I went after the two times of going to my gyn of all life who told me and gave me the meds and he told me that i did not have blisters lor sores maybe they were varicose veins there. But id weird cause no one can tell me what is was. Why would it be red and itchy and ti gling on the same part as 2016? Right. And that many different exams wow

      When was your exposure though? Wasn’t it three years ago? Any symptoms outside of the genital area are not symptoms of genital herpes. Whether that’s on your hands or back etc. What are you talking to your doctor about, seems they aren’t doing their job if they keep testing you for something that you probably don’t have that doesn’t cause the symptoms you suggest.

      I was exposed to it I truly believe that I was! My body still doesn't feel completely right! Now I have a lot of new sypmtoms like nerve pain, plus I had all the symptoms minus the sores because I had hsv1 already kinda spared me (at least I think) Body had pain on one side of the body, burning tingling, on hands and buttocks and swollen underarms. I also had a low grade fever. (which are all known sypmtoms). I'm so tired of testing at this might be next week

      Hey @Samantha1997 this is all a bit confusing for you. I’m afraid that the best interpretation I can give right now is that you have a childhood HSV-1 oral infection that is producing erratic combined IgG test results. It would seem likely that you do not have a HSV-2 infection. And likely that you do not have genital herpes. However your suspicions need investigating. clarity could be achieved with the following: - a swab of a freshly emerging lesion - IgG testing that is type specific for HSV-1 and HSV-2.
