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
Don't sweat it, lots of people have it, you can take one valtracts a day to keep from spreading it, just never go with anyone during a out break, talk to your Doctor about it, wash your hands often you can spread it, if you start the med's first sign of a break out, it will dry up with in three days most of the time, you'll learn as time goes on, so you'll know when to start taking them, oh and always keep some on hand, because you never know when, hope I have been of some help to you, good luck.
