Herpes and covid vaccine

Recommended Posts

Hi 🙋‍♂️ I just recently find out I have herpes  6 days after I have my  first dosis of the covid 19 vaccine I don’t think they are related but I was reading and article on the New York post that saids in Israel 6 people got  herpes zoster after the vaccine. Is any body experiencing a case similar like me ? I have herpes type 1 . Also Tomorrow I’m getting my second shot of the COVID-19 vaccine and I’m really really scare to get it after what happen the first time . Do you guys think  I should get it ? Algo im taking valacyclovir should I take normally or don’t take it tomorrow ? Thanks

I was completely unaware I had HSV2. I even had multiple IGG test confirming I was negative bc I had been married to a lady with it. So to my knowledge I was negative. I Had first vaccine shot and BAM a huge outbreak.  I am still trying to adjust to the new normal but it is very difficult.  I am absolutely confident that the vaccine brought on the outbreak.   Keep in mind  I’m not saying the vaccine gave me the HSV2   I guess I already had it  but it did bring on my first outbreak and it was horribly bad.   That was in Feb  I have not had a follow up OB break lots of annoying tingling and pain down my leg off and on.  That is my experience.
