How to ward off an outbreak while on Prednisone?

Recommended Posts

I’m an asthmatic and recently contracted COVID. I believe my husband brought it home from work unfortunately. I’m on day 8 and my breathing is getting real bad. My doctor gave me azithromycin and prednisone if I feel like I need it. We all know prednisone and any immunosuppressant don't mix well with herpes. Years ago I would have zero issues being on prednisone for my asthma but starting two years ago I’ve had bad herpes symptoms even while on antivirals ehich I’ve had to tweak my dosing etc. The passed several months I’ve felt great “down there” so I’m worried starting prednisone for my breathing is going to cause a downward spiral of outbreaks. Has anyone been on prednisone and done anything to keep outbreaks from happening? Do you think increasing my antiviral dose would help? Its bad enough battling covid I really can’t handle the mental and physical pain of an outbreak right now 😕
