Can botox cause herpes outbreaks?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

It’s been a little since I posted. I have a question that I’m not sure if anyone can answer. I have hsv genitally, taking valtrex etc. outbreak control have been good for a few months, I think for me a lot has to do with my hormones. Anyway...I scheduled an appointment for Botox for my crows feet around my eyes. Does anyone know if Botox can cause an outbreak? I was filling out the medical form for the office I’m going to and I did not check off the box that listed “herpes-genitally”. This isn’t my doctor and I’m not comfortable disclosing that to someone who I just met who is giving me some botox, but I do want to know if anyone has had botox and it has caused an outbreak. I thought it was weird on the health form that genital herpes was listed under “auto immune” problems and not under the the “gynecological/std” column. So it got me wondering, shit, could botox in my face cause a genital outbreak.
