Recurring herpes outbreak - every week for 6 months
posted by anonymous to Health & Fitness (6 answers total)
It's been 6 months since I got genital herpes. I have been getting herpes outbreak every week or every two weeks... Between recurring outbreaks, 3 days was the max days in a row that I didn't have herpes... In 6 months!
On top of that, my two outbreaks I had before this one were around my butthole... Now it's in my genital. These three outbreaks were all in three weeks...
I've tried suppressive therapy for 2 months(taking Valtrex everyday for 2 months), that didn't help.
I take Lysine everyday, that doesn't help.
I've been taking b/c pill the whole time, and I got off of it last week on a theory that there's a relation. But I just got another rather painful outbreak, so I don't know what. Maybe it takes time...
Any thoughts on this? I'm planning to go see a doctor in a month or two.
