I was diagnosed with genital herpes april 2007. it was devistating news, but i picked myself up and got on with my life. I didnt have an OB till the begining of March this year which was great , but since then i have had an OB one after another.the blisters seem to heal fast and go then the following day i have them back. I have been to my doctor and she prescribed Aciclovir tablets everyday to help ,but nothing so far. Has anyone else had this problem and if so what did you do

Can't say I have had this problem. I have genital HSV type 1 which tends to have less outbreaks. Maybe switch to Valtrex? Some people experience side effects, others none. Your insurance might cover it, even though there is no generic.

Was there something in your diet that changed around onset time and has been maintained through now? Are you experiencing more stress day to day or getting less good sleep? Basically, I'd suggest trying to figure out if there was anything to your routines and diet that changed in March, that you have been maintaining, that could be contributing to this problem.

      @srinivas thank you for the suggestion. Are you on antivirals? How long have you had HSV? How well do you feel now that you are taking the supplements?

      It doesnt really mean much yet. They still dont know if the herpes is taking advantage of a diseased brain or causing the disease. Furthermore, there is evidence that Alzheimer's might be caused by oral spirochete disease and even Lyme. Many of you could have oral Spirochetes but the Lyme and is less likely. https://globallymealliance.org/pathogen-cause-alzheimers-disease/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5008232/ https://newsblog.drexel.edu/2016/02/10/do-infections-cause-alzheimers-disease/   Of course it could be both! Maybe having hsv-1 and oral spirochetes quadruples the risk.  In my opinion the spirochete theory sounds more likely and its hard to dismiss neurosurgeons and caretakers getting Alzheimers from a disease that was previously thought to be non contagious. I'd worry more about Spirochetes.

      I wonder if people in the military are tested for hsv, because the general public isn’t. You have to specifically ask for it and many doctors don’t even see the point because it’s “so common”. It’s very possible he has it and has no symptoms or very mild random symptoms. Sorry to hear what you’re dealing with. It seems like women’s symptoms are worse than men’s.

      No that’s not the issue at all. The absolute vast majority of nerve pain is not caused by herpes. Hence it cannot be used to reverse engineer a diagnosis of herpes. That is exceptinally dangerous and we must do all we can encourage proper diagnosis.
