  1. I have not, but thanks for the advice. That's easy, and I've ordered some. I hope it helps. This was to clear up the tail end of a bad OB. I'm not sure, but it worked. I just took them for a few days.
  2. I was diagnosed with GHVS1 in March. Since then, I've been pretty much having constant outbreaks, even on 4 grams of Valtrex per day. The difference is that on the meds, it's one sore at a time vs. TONS. I'm at a loss of what to do. I just want to feel normal for even a few weeks. Has changing your diet or anything else helped? I'm scared about the dose of meds I'm on even though my doctor says it's fine for now. My last OB off meds was so bad, it took steroids to help clear it up. I know HVS1 isn't supposed to be as bad, but apparently I'm not the norm. I'd love any ideas in addition to changing my diet as well. But seriously, the idea of giving up sunshine, wheat, peanuts, and sugar has me pretty depressed, but I'm SO TIRED of my OBs. Something has to change for my sanity.
  3. I took mine no problem. Just have them in their bottle.
  4. I was diagnosed with GHSV1 in March and have been having almost constant OBs since, so that's not necessarily true.
  5. I'm having this same issue. I have constant OBs unless I'm on a really high dose of Valtrex. This has been happening since I had my first one in March.
  6. I'm on my first OB, and I'll take pills every day to make it not happen again. I'm not sure what the downside is as I haven't had any side effects.
  7. I'm on whatever the generic for Valtrex is. The thing that scares me is that 2 pills a day didn't control it when it first happened or when I tried to lessen.... I got a whole new OB. My doctor told me that is this is the last week I can be on the high dose, so I'm not sure what happens after this.
  8. He has it orally, and I'm guessing I'm insensitive, but 1 cold sore a year seems pretty mild compared to the countless I'm dealing with down there right now. They were almost healed and a whole new batch came, so I'm on week 3 of bleeding and pain.
  9. I've been with my husband for 20 years, and at some point contracted HSV1 on my genitals. I'm currently experiencing my first outbreak which is on week 2 even with an increased dose of Valtrex. I can't get over the feelings of anger and resentment, and he's being less than supportive.... acting like it's no big deal and it's the same as a cold sore (never had one but I can't imagine them being this painful). I can't get comfortable and am basically in constant pain. I know my stress level over this isn't helping, and I just want it to stop. Anyway, I just needed to vent to some people who maybe understand since my husband clearly doesn't. Is there anything else that can help clear this up and manage the discomfort?
