Anti-viral medication not working

Recommended Posts

I was put on acyclovir for my original herpes outbreak which helped clear it up. Towards the beginning of February I started having the pre-outbreak tingling sensation/pain (not sure if people understand what I mean by that). I took two full dose series of my acyclovir and nothing seemed to change. My doctor put me on valacyclovir and I have been taking that twice a day for over 10 days and the pain has just gotten worse. I went into my doctor again today and I still don’t have any full blown sores, but the discomfort is still there. I don’t mind the discomfort, but I am just frustrated that I am constantly feeling like my sores are about to emerge. Has anyone else experienced something similar? My doctor was honestly shook as well and didn’t really give me any solutions other than the ones he has already given. I am pretty scarred from the insane pain I went through during my original outbreak and  am terrified to have that happen again. But I also don’t want to have to be constantly taking my anti-viral medication.
