Outbreaks & Pain

Recommended Posts



1. I am wondering how many of us are getting painful outbreaks.

2. Are they painful all the time or only in the beginning?

3. Are painful outbreaks usually bigger outbreaks (that is , more that 1-2 pimples/sores) or- it has nothing to do with size /area of OBs.

4. Is urination usually painful during OBs? Is it also ever accompanied by fever or other typical symptoms?


My OBs have never been painful, only if the sore gets stuck to my underwear.. I have solved it by using pantiliners - it turns out my sore doesn't get stuck to a pantiliner. I do not associate any fever or tingling with outbreaks, either.

Nevertheless, I always feel something is not right in that area. Recently I have been paying more attention to it hoping to find out if I ever feel right. Well, I do not know if this is the result of my paranoia, but this area hardly ever feels right.

Sometimes I wish I had more typical viral outbreaks I've read about here: with tingling, ob, oozing, crusting and it's all over. It seems like this kind of OB is easier to predict and control and it's over sooner. My painless sore seems to stay there forever, I don't notice exactly when it comes and it fades away very, very slowly over a long period of time.

It seems like I have low immunity and my virus is not in the best shape, either.:D

      hello all, update... so the white ulcer inside started around january 4... and today it is still there... no burning while i pee, just a constant mild irritation feel, no other symptoms i went back to get retested 2/12 so 2.5 months after exposure... including HSV, HIV, gon, chlam, everything came back negative... the doctor thinks it's some form of chlamydia, he gave my doxy for 10 days is it too soon to tell if i have HSV? is it possible to have an ulcer inside the urethra and be fungal or bacterial?

      Probably not many.  I'm going to change my twitter symbol to the copper ribbon at least.

      okay! I guess I will just start at the basic dosage of vitamin C and go up every week little ? I take 1500 mg of super lysine like the bottle says and it still gives me gas and diarrhea. hoping it will pass if not I'll drop down to 2 a day! I really appreciate the advice! i know we would all.do ANYTNING to not have OB  at the moment idc about stigmas od boyfriends or dating or sex....I just care about FEELING healthy in my own skin. this is my one and only life

      That sounds like a good place to begin.  The lysine worked really well for me for about a year and a half.  Then things got steadily worse for me and nothing worked until vitamin C.  My immune system is not that great even tho i take care of myself, so u may have good luck if u have a decent one.  With the vitamin c, u must 1) take it at intervals throughout the day, not all at once 2) dont increase the amount u r taking too fast 3) it will give u gas at higher doses and even diarrhea if u go crazy with it. These r signs to lower your dose!  If u can just control your OB's with vitamin c and lysine or anything else, maybe a cure will finally become available.
