My OB looked like a rash...my Dr. told me to use this prescription steroid cream.... I thought I read somewhere not to use this. Any one have any experience?

Hi ddrt,

You can read more about that here: http://www.herpes-coldsores.com/herpes_treatments.htm

Steroid creams are contra-indicative for viral conditions such as herpes. Although it can sometimes give relief initially, it then usually inflames the outbreak and makes it worse.

Hope this helps,

Shenda

Thanks...I think that is exactly what happened. I used the cream for a week and it seemed to help....as soon as I stopped it flared up. Is there something I can use or just let it run its course?

Be mindful not to irritate the area with too many things. Perhaps helping to soothe the area may be the best option at this stage. I would suggest a bath with Epsom Salts to beign with and dosing up on your Lysine and supplements.

I will NEVER use the cream again. I was reading about Dynamiclear. Any one have any experience with that?
