Frequency of outbreaks changing.

Recommended Posts

Have any of you noticed the frequency of outbreaks changing? 

I would have an OB about every 9 months for the first 3 years. Now this year I have had several all in a row. 

I am trying to workout out why, and am leaning towards possible dietary changes being the cause. I.e if I allow too much rubbish/processed food into my diet, maybe this is triggering an OB. 

Thinking about my diet over this last year, I have eaten a lot of oats, chocolate, and other high arginine foods. So am going to experiment with eating a high lysine diet to see the OB subside. 

I think I generally manage my stress well, but having these outbreaks has stressed me out, and then it becomes a vicious circle. 

Thanks for reading, and I hope you aren't letting this little bitch of a virus cause you too much pain.

I'm experiencing this as well. I feel I manage stress well but I've been on a constant outbreak for the last month and a half. I've had this virus for 10 years and I feel like I'm back in year one. My doc is going to put me on the generic for valtrex so I'm hoping that my body will respond to that. I was able to not take anything and just take acyclovir I felt something coming on. I'm so frustrated and just want this to go back in remission.

How are you doing now JackDaniels & everyone else that responded? Has the outbreaks subsided? I’m currently going through a crazy amount of back to back outbreaks since I gave birth to my first child. I have had HSV-2 for 6 years with barely any outbreaks at all. But since I’ve given birth 8 months ago, I’ve had 7 outbreaks back to back. I’m freaking out.
