I had my first outbreak within the last week. I tried to avoid it and put hydrogen peroxide and neosporin per webmd and other forums. The pain and discomfort got unbearable so I went to my doctor, she prescribed acyclovir (Zovirax) It's 400MG it says take 1, 3 times a day. I just picked up my Rx about 30 minutes ago and took it about 15 minutes ago and it might be in my head but I do feel a little relief. I know the common percentage of Americans who have hsv 2 but i can't help but feel depressed about it and scared I'm not going to find a partner that will accept me now with this package
