      Hello, 
      I was diagnosed with hsv1&2 earlier this year. I was prescribed 1g of valtrex (valacyclovir) a day for suppressive therapy.  Valtrex helps greatly with my symtoms, but I recently had to leave my job for health reasons and will no longer have health insurance to get prescribed valtrex. 
      Does anyone know where I can purchase valtrex (valacyclovir) online without a prescription?

      I've had HSV2 for 4 years now. Recently had an unrelated minor spinal injury that caused some severe neuropathy. So instead of taking narcotics for months, my doctor just had me try my first round of Immunoglobulin IVIG treatments (4 days getting the intravenous blood infusion) labeling my symptoms as something called CIPD (google it). (IVIG treatments give you a boost to your immune system).  Also note, I can't take steroids long term also because it spikes my sugar and I have Type 2 diabetes. 
      I wonder if anyone else here has tried IVIG? I have read that some people have taken it to suppress HSV. Love to hear from others. It's too early for me to know if this works - I'll report back in several months. Just so you know my background - I had OBs in the first year about every 8 weeks, which consisted of neuropathy and maybe some small bumps. Then the second year I only got those same symptoms every 4 months or so, then i only get these now about once or twice a year, and it's mostly just some tingling and nerve pain. So we'll see how this works out. There are articles out there too.

      I contracted the virus anally 2 years ago without a primary outbreak, just the fever like symtpoms. Only had my first visible outbreak 4 months later and took valtrex for a few days. Only afyerni was done with the meds, that's when the nerve pain started. Ever since then, I never used any meds again and only have a small red dot outbreaks in my inner left and right thighs near my dick. 
      However, the nerve pain is constant on my left inner thigh in the crease and it sometimes moves to the head and shaft (nerve tingly pain). This pain has been constant for 2 years. Just wondering if I'm the only one with this problem, but are there any guys who have constant nerve pain from hsv2?

      @CHT I am not sure what country you are in but I am in the U.K. and they don’t do blood tests for HSV at the standard sexual health clinics maybe at private ones where you have pay they do.   What would checking my anti bodies confirm ? And she didn’t swab the area as she said there was nothing to swab and no lesions but I am sure there was. She seemed quite inexperienced.  I have had an lesion swabbed years  ago  to confirm HSV2 but no swabs  since.  I would like  to know if they are HSV or my excema as I never know which is which so I just don’t have sex when I get these feelings as I don’t know if I’m having a Outbreak.  I will have a look at the link thanks. I wouldn’t want to go on the implant again as I don’t want 3 years of birth  control in my arm. I may consider the mini pill which is the same hormone as the implant as I can easily stop this it I have a bad reaction. I have an appointment with a specialist at the sexual health clinic next week

      Hey @PlainJane what a thoroughly nasty piece of work! Im afraid it is the waiting game for you, having said that, there seems very little reason for you to suspect herpes.
    • PlainJane
      @WilsoInAus Thank you so much for the reply! You did before I even asked lol. I really didn’t want to talk to her about it. The last time we had spoken she was really mean and nasty to me. Threatening to beat me up because she was drunk. I don’t want her going around telling people I asked her if she has herpes because I have it. Which she absolutely will. Or she does and then I will be her scape goat for her to tell people I’m the one who gave it to her. I guess it’ll be a waiting game to get blood work to confirm or deny the presence of HSV2 antibodies.

      Hello @PlainJane I think I recall your partner's post and would suggest that what he had as revealed in the photos was almost certainly not herpes - and reaffirmed above! The first thing to note is that you cannot be infected with HSV-1 and then test at a level 43.5 a total of 9 days after the incident. That's not how your body works. It would takes several weeks and possibly months to reach that level. Undoubtedly the HSV-1 infection is old and highly likely an oral infection from your childhood. The next thing to note is that toys or any object are not a great way of transferring herpes. Typically the rubbing of the skin area that is shedding the virus against the recipient's skin is needed. Transfer any other way is somewhere between infeasible to impossible. Your pictures do not look like herpes to me in favour of folliculitis - your partner's thigh shots are almost certainly folliculitis. Also note that this female friend must have HSV-2 for this to even warrant the vaguest notion of herpes being a cause. Can you ask her? If she does have HSV-2, then you will need a 12-16 week IgG test in order to have a conclusive answer (with a strong expectation of negative).

      @WilsoInAus Could you review this? You replied previously on my boyfriends post of his butt rash. I guess all I can really do is find a facility who will swab when I have a suspecting bump, since my doctor won’t for some reason and then redo the blood test for HSV2 since it’s now been 4 weeks since possible exposure.
