Living in a hot sunshine state (Arizona)

Recommended Posts

My family and I are considering moving to Arizona. We live in the Midwest right now with 4 seasons. I’m concerned that living in a state with more sunshine and heat will trigger more outbreaks as doctors say that is a trigger. Can anyone who lives in a hot sunshine state give me some insight? Do you have a lot of issues with it? Thank you

I have lived in AZ for many years. Have not had a single outbreak. Matter of fact, for almost the entire time I've been HSV+, I've lived in hot states. I've never had an OB.

But please take my experience with a grain of salt as I've never had an OB that I am aware of. I was diagnosed by blood test alone and none of the usual 'triggers', trigger me. Not alcohol, waxing, heat, stress, etc...

But I will also say that you will love AZ. Another option if you don't want the extreme heat is to move up toward Flagstaff. They have all 4 seasons there and the summers are not nearly as intense as in the desert.
