Stopping a outbreak fast? Prodrome symptoms

Recommended Posts

GSXR 1000

Guys and girls what are the best things to do to stop a outbreak?  For the past week or so I have been eating a lot of wheat pasta, peanut butter and coffee now its my time to pay I guess.  Having bad prodrome symptoms since last night. My left ass cheek hurts, and down behind my leg, prostate inflammed, and penis where I've had outbreaks before is burning but no marks yet.  I am starting 3 grams lysine today and also taking bht. Anything else?

Sorry to say there's no magic to stop the OB. Prevention in the first place is your best bet and  lysine/BHT or antiviral med only shorten its recovery time.

I know when I have a pretty bad ob I use baby diaper rash ointment with zinc. It at least soothes the pain away. How long have you had herpes? Because as the years pass the less I get them. The only thing that triggers it is too much stress. I hope the ointment helps if you choose to get it.

I've had it like 7 years now, and the ob's come just as much as they did when I first got it. I've probably had around 100 outbreaks

Have you asked your doctor about suppression therapy? At first I was doing that for..... maybe six months or more before I decided to stop when the frequency of my ob stopped. So I think it's all about time. I know my trigger is stress, but you can't always control that, can you? How are you sure all of that is causing your ob? Besides the things you eat what else do you think is bringing this on? How long have you had herpes? Just curious. Maybe as the years pass you won't have it so much.

      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.
