  1. Hi! Thanks for your reply. My Dr has very little knowledge. She actually doesn't believe my current outbreak is herpes as I've just had 4 outbreaks back to back. Thankfully I've managed to get a hospital appointment on Monday so I'll quiz them.
  2. Just a thought. I've had herpes for a long time. Since 6th April I've had non stop outbreaks after nothing for ages. I went back on the contraceptive pill near the end of march. Could this be contributing to these horrid outbreaks? Is there any evidence to suggest this?

  4. Hi I'm new to this too. I've had a non stop outbreak since 6th April. Everyday there is pain or discomfort of some sort. It seems to go in cycles. I've had around 6 outbreaks so far this year. I don't have answers but didn't want the read and not say anything. I have type 1 as well. I'm at the end of my tether 😞
  5. Thank you for your reply, Ash. I went to the Dr today. She's given me more of the same medication. I asked about other meds but she said she wasn't sure if this was herpes as it's not "typical" of the infection to have so many outbreaks in a row after years of nothing. This contradicts what I've read on here? So she's referred me to the hospital. She also tested for other sti's as she thinks it could be something else. But apart from the itching and soreness, I have no other symptoms. Feel at a loss now. 😔
  6. I was diagnosed with herpes in march. I knew very little about it. But looking back I had an undiagnosed infection down there almost ten years ago which came with flu like symptoms. I had to be signed off work for 2 weeks. I now think this could have been the initial outbreak. Fast forward to this year, I saw the Dr for what I thought were reoccurring yeast infections. It was herpes type 1. This was mid march and it lasted about a week. It was very painful. I didn't get any medication as by the time I saw the Dr, the outbreak was clearing up. On the 6th April I had the intense itching and the next day the outbreak started. It was better for a day before the cycle started all over again. It cleared up late into last week and then yesterday the itching came back. Today it's painful again. I'm sure it feels like there's a blister or a sore but haven't looked as of yet. Is this normal? I got aclivor to take, 800mg three times a day for 3 days. I have just finished the course yesterday so it clearly hasn't worked. Feeling a bit down as I'm usually super active and this has made even walking sore. New to this so any tips on helping relieve the symptoms much appreciated. Thanks 🙂
