Herpes outbreaks: When will the physical pain stop?!

Recommended Posts

I have just had my first outbreak, I am 22 years old and absolutely terrified. I know the psychological hurdles will be the next things to conquer but right now I would settle for a little relief. My pharmacy was out of Lidocaine (spell?) gel and I am skeptical of how well it works? Also when the sores begin to scab over does some of the pain go away?

Ah, I'm sorry you're in pain. And yes, the pain subsides as the herpes sores heal. And after the first 6 months to a year, the amount of outbreaks tend to lessen in frequency and severity as your body builds up immunity to herpes. In the meantime, here are a few blog articles that will help you with the pain!
