Things that make me have outbreaks

Recommended Posts

In the  past month alone I have gotten an out break from having blood drawn (woke up the next day with a tingling elbow and 2 lesions on that arm) and starting on an SSRI anti depressant (worst OB in years), I also get outbreaks from working out too hard, too much alcohol, caffeine, too much sun. 

Has anyone found an antidepressant that doesn’t increase their outbreaks? I was reading online that SSRIs can decrease immunity. All these outbreaks are making me depressed!!

I'm sorry that you have been experiencing this. On the bright side ☀️ it is good to know outbreak triggers so you can be ready for new outbreaks, and track triggers.

I am on Zoloft (sertraline) currently and I was on it years prior to getting HSV1 on my genitals. Zoloft is awesome and it helps me with my OCD and feeling happier. 

I hope this helps!! ☀️🌈❤️ I'm sending love and blessings your way 🍀🌄☀️
