  1. Hoping someone can help me understand this. When I was first diagnosed in May, my symptoms were super mild...very small bumps down there that hardly seemed like anything more than a small irritation. Over the last few months, I have been on suppressive therapy and experienced constant podrome symptoms and nerve pain in my legs and butt, but no actual outbreaks. Then, in September, I switched from Valtrex to Acyclovir due to the constant podrome, and experienced the worst outbreak of my life down there with multiple bumps and 2 lesions that looked like canker sores and are still healing (it's been 4+ weeks now). It's just mind-boggling to me that my symptoms are getting worse with each month while on suppressive therapy. Is it possible that the anti-virals are making things worse? Has anyone else experienced this? Not sure what to do. :(
  2. Hi all. If you're on suppressive therapy and get an IGG herpes blood test, can the antiviral medication skew the results, so that it appears you don't have the virus? I was tested in June and received a 1.50 IGM result and negative IGG result...then was tested again in September (only IGG) and received a negative result, but have been on suppressive therapy since July. Any insight here would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
