Length of Outbreak?

Recommended Posts

coffeeandtv

Hello!

I've had G HSV1 for about a year and a half now... and just now experiencing my second outbreak. I could feel something going on downstairs so I went to the gyno and took the full dose of Famvir.

My outbreak was very mild - it was barely noticeable. It didn't bother me at all but I could see a small cluster of sores. The outbreak was so mild that I thought that I was over my outbreak after about a week (I thought that was a significant amount of time for the Famvir to kick it out of my system) So I made the mistake and had sex with my boyfriend which definitely upset everything down there.

Going on two weeks now... still have an outbreak... is this normal? Was it the sexual intercourse that screwed everything up?

Should I take another prescription of Famvir? Or do you only take one dose of antiviral and just wait?

Thank you!!!

I have GHSV1 also, and still have only had the first outbreak. But I have had this only 4 months....yeah i'm thinking the sex irritated it. and brought it back...ummm I'm not sure about another perscription...do whatever makes you more comfortable. If I were in your shoes I would go for another dose of antivirals...but that's just me.

As far as your outbreak goes, it is unusual for the second outbreak to last 2 weeks, but it can happen. I to have ghsv1 and have only had it 4 months now, and I have not had another outbreak. But i do take suppressive Valtrex daily for my own peace of mind. As far as the antiviral goes I would suggest going on a second round of them and see if it kicks it n the rear. As far as some pain therapy try sitting in a epsom salt bath to comfort and help try the sores out. second as far as you rb/f is concerned do you know his herpes status? reason I ask is if he already has been exposed to the same strain you have hsv1 then it is very unlikely you can give it to him in his genital area, since he already has the antibody for the same type. Hope this helped, take care.:)

Thank you for your advice! My boyfriend already has HSV1 Orally and we use condoms anyway so he is not too worried about it. :)

      OK sir, let me explain so even you can understand. When I speak of inaccessibility, I'm referring to the immune system; i.e. In general, the immune system does not enter cells and kill viruses. Further, because the herpes virus resides in the neuronal cells, the immune system wont kill those cells (for obvious reasons) to clear the virus. The end result is that the virus is inaccessible by the immune system and the virus remains for life. My statement is/was accurate.

      Well guys, i had the talk... and it went even worse than I thought. He refused to talk to me in person, so I had to do it through text. He said “well I’ve never had symptoms, so I’m not getting tested. You work in the medical field, you probably paid someone to fabricate those test results to try to trap me into a relationship. I will have no further contact with you” ... and then he blocked me from everything. And THEN less than 24 hours later, messaged my old room mate asking her to come over for a beer and movie night.  HES DISGUSTING!! I was considering taking legal action against him, because with his total lack of sympathy, and the fact that he tried to sleep with my friend less than 24 hours after I told him, I think he knew he had it and just didn’t care... so I messaged his ex on Facebook to see if She knew he had it. She wasn’t sure but she is definitely going to get tested now... she told me he is an extreme narcissist and emotionally manipulates people. ... after doing my research, it all makes sense.    So since hes not sorry, I decided to do some type of revenge. I reported him for fishing without a license, and having a trailer with no tags. I’m not sure if he got cited or not, but the cops definitely investigated... because about an hour after my complaint I got 4 consecutive calls from a blocked number less than a minute apart.... he was angry and trying to reach me.    Im just devastated that he did this to me and doesn’t even care. He lead me to believe he cared about me

      Well you’re nearly there. As you say you can’t patent a natural substance such as vitamin C. Anyone can use it and develop their own product.  Nothing stopping this with your mushroom then!

      @WilsoInAus Another display of ignorance, here’s an example, vitamin c is found in nature, you cannot patent vitamin c, but you can make your own mixture of compounds where vitamin c is the pertinent substance and patent that mixture,  regardles though, the main ingredient is an extracted compound found in nature, or perhaps they synthesized a very close mimicking compound so yes you can patent naturally occurring compounds if you know how to make it original like the example I gave above
