Once you had herpes its a life long thing, a vires that lives in the nerves, things can trigger it such as your feeling run down, a illness or stress, don't give up, try another Doctor he might know a better treatment plan, I know people that has to take a higher dose of acyclovir to get the infection under control, then stay on one day to help keep it in tack, but there will always be outbreaks, work on building your body up making it stronger, watch your stress meaning don't let things get you up set, start on a search for a specialist in this field you can get more help by finding someone that is better educated with this, I'm praying for you, I know your living a nightmare, let us know how your doing .
hi, my name is felicia
i can't believe your story. This exactly what I am experiencing. i am having a hard time functioning and I look sooooo tired and anxiety level is extreme!! i feel know one else is experiencing what I have and what has kept me from a normal life - working, dating, etc... listening to your story is what I needed to hear - especially what you are taking for this condition. You mention you are taking acyclovir. Interesting. thank you for this
As already stated, herpes is forever it's the breakout of infection however that causes issues -like the terrible ones you're going through. I would recommend seeking treatment from different doctors, maybe even search for a specialist in your type of case and travel to see them if need be.
I'm so sorry for what you are going through. Have you ever tried Valtrex? I just found out I have GH from a breakout but I wouldn't compare my situation to yours. It cleared up my outbreak and I take it daily to hopefully prevent more although it's only been a few weeks since it cleared up so I don't know how effective it is as a preventative. You mentioned coming on here for people who understand... I may not understand the lengths of your struggle but I definitely get the stress, and emotional part. I don't know if you have any kind of support system or not but myself, I do not. If you are interested in having someone you can talk to openly with about your situation please respond, I could definitely use someone to talk to as well! In the meantime I wish you the best of luck! I hope to hear from you!
