“I recently went to the doctor after seeing a small bump on my vagina. I was so freaked out because it hurt and burned when I used the restroom. I was so nervous going in and embarrassed. I looked online and thought the worst. As soon as my doctor seen it she said it was herpes. I thought it was the end of the world I fainted and thought I was going to die. But she explained that about 85 percent of people have it. There are two types. Type 1 and 2. Type 1 being from the waist and above. And type 2 being anything below the waist. Herpes can be treated and it's not HIV or aids so don't freak out.”

“I pop one of these, "Valtrex" 1grm and not long after I notice a change in my cold sores. AND I GET THEM BAD. ....so bad that I can't eat things like chips, salty things, candy, etc. It's miserable. If Valtrex didn't exist, I would be in quite a lot of pain and discomfort. I carry extras in my locker at work in case an outbreak hits again.”

“HSV type 1. Amazing product. I woke up this morning to a small cold sore took two 1 gram Valtrex and also happen to have acyclovir ointment just in case. Just 6 hours later the fluid blister has already gone in beginning to heal. I can't stress enough how important it is to take product right away. I also felt a tingle a few days ago and also took Valtrex then but no cold sore developed until today so I took two more Valtrex and have to take two more at 6 p.m. . But amazes me barely even a cold sore and 6 hours dried up. Well worth it to have some of that zovirax acyclovir ointment on hand as well.”

“This works great, if I catch it in time (I am usually able too) there are no visible symptoms. If I am little late (rarely) outbreaks are small and brief.”
