  1. Since having my 2 doses of the Pfizer Biontec Vaccine I have gone from 2 outbreaks a year treated with acyclovir to 2 outbreaks a month. 800mg of Acyclovir 4 times a day for a week doesn’t work. A therapeutic does of 800mg a day hasn’t reduced the outbreaks and this has been since April 2021. I have read some hypothesis that the vaccine may interfere with immune receptors and want to see if there is a trend. It’s hard to gather data about this because us Herpes sufferers are private. But wondered if any of you have had the same experience? If so did you report this as an adverse reaction and have you found a way to cope? My relationship is suffering and I am in frequent pain… I want to make sure others don’t suffer.. finally have you caught covid? So far I haven’t ..wondered if there was a link there too? I want to understand what is going on and would love to hear from you 🙏
  2. Hi guys, Not sure if this belongs here but here goes! 4 years ago I had an outbreak of what was diagnosed clinically as herpes but tests came back negative. I had a horrendous fever for two week with huge painful ulcerated craters in my vagina, a weird grey discharge and swollen glands in my armpits.The first doctor told me I had syphilis! Then I went to a sexual health clinic where she said it was incredibly bad herpes. I was given Zovirax and lidocaine for the pain, after two days the whole of my vagina swelled up and I could hardly see the sores! I could hardly walk. It took about 2 weeks for the fever and illness to subside and the ulcers to calm down, it didn’t completely clear up for about 4 weeks. As I said the tests (swabs and blood test) came back negative. Now four years later, almost exactly to the day weirdly enough I’ve noticed a white head looking lump (like a pea) inside my labia. This is how it appeared before but there were more of them and then they turned into huge craters.  Basically I just want to know is a four year gap between outbreaks typical and do the symptoms sound like herpes? Thanks!
