Continuous nonstop breakout

Recommended Posts

New here! So ive been dealing with this since 2019. initially i only had the first OB n then one a few months later that year. Then did not have any up until this yr 2021. I started antivirals in february. I was prescribed valtrex 1g a day n it ddnt work after 3 months then switched to Acyclovir 400 mg 2x a day. The outbreak always in same spot right at the crevice of my thigh n genital area it always swells then burst then “heals” but then never goes away. I dnt get other symptoms just the boil like lesion that wont go away. ive gone to the drs n theres nothing wrong with me besides working overnights n being tired occasionally, i eat good get exercise. My dr said to give the pills a couple months but Im really frustrated and its ruining my relationship because we cnt be intimate at all. My partner is super understanding but i just feel bad.. im wondering if anyone has suggestions. Are there other medicines that can possibly help because i just feel like im resistant to the Acyclovir n valtrex

I am so sorry you've been suffering. You don't deserve this at all!! Please know that you aren't alone. We are here for you ❤️.

From what you explained, it doesn't sound like you may be experiencing resistance to the antivirals. Have you had any other health issues since the beginning of this year? Perhaps something happened that affected your immune response to healing the virus. Otherwise, it could viral resistance. In this case, you may need a stronger and/or more direct dose of antivirals to the spot, typically given intravenously. 

It is possible to have an IV dose of antivirals to help heal the outbreak completely. It isn't good that the spot never fully heals. I'm sure that is not only physically painful, but emotionally painful as you mentioned. 

It is great that your partner is understanding and kind, that is what you need during this hard time. 

I reccomend reaching out to a virologist or getting a referral from your doctor for a dermatologist and/or virologist so they can provide better treatment and examine the issue from a different perspective that the regular doctor perhaps didn't think of. 

I am sending prayers of healing and hope your way ❤️ Stay strong!! 🌄🌻

Hi @Hopeless95

Sorry for what you are going through.

Interesting comment about the vaccine because there is quite a lot on the internet (government sites) the vaccines causing ‘virus reactivation’ in a small percentage of people. Shingles for example seems to common and I have seen this mentioned in videos on treatment of king Covid . This information is available on lots of government websites (France, USA, UK) exert here from  Agence nationale de sécurité du médicament - the French National Medicines Safety Agency: 


Among the long side effects monitored in Pfizer stand:

  • Shingles
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Thrombocytopenia / Immunologically-mediated thrombocytopenia / Spontaneous bruises
  • Diabetic imbalace in contexts of reactogenicity
  • Guillain Barré syndrome
  • Macrophage activation syndrome
  • Reaction to Epstein Barr virus
  • Zoster meningoencephalitis
  • Etc etc.

FYI I am pro vaccine and have had both myself but I know this information because I had a reaction so have been dealing with medical system in France and had to report it here. In addition to ongoing outbreaks prior to getting the vaccines 🤨

Anyways it could we be related but it could also be coincidence too -  I am definitely no doctor! Dosent necessarily help you right now  but @Flowerteacher55 Advice is really good. 

I hope you get in under control but you are not alone.
