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.

      Hi, I have the exact same thing and have been to a gp and sexual health clinic and it hasn’t been resolved. Did you get any answers?

      a week ago, I went to lab and get my test done for STD. everything is clear on the test except HSV 1.   Ranges are  <0.90 - Negative 0.90-1.09 - Equivocal >1.09 - Positive   And My result for HSV 1 seems to be too high    it is HSV 1 IGG, TYPE SPECIFIC AB 56.90 H ( OUT OF RANGE ) I was paid for this test (full std) everything came back negative except hsv 1, after I seen the result, I called my doctor to made an appointment to discuss this matter. I will most likely request a test from my doctor and have him to check this out.  It's been 3 years I was in USA and had sex just a couple times.   I never had unprotected sex since like 10 years. I was in USA for 3 years now and like i said never had sex unprotected almost for 10 years. Received oral for 5-6 times.   Here is the picture :  The purple marks on my legs are stretch marks due of doing weight lifting. I do have so many of them on my body. As you see in the picture, they are FLAT. not like a bump or pimple. I checked so many pictures on internet but I think mines don't look like herpes but I just want to know your thoughts about this.
