What triggers outbreaks for you?


Recommended Posts

I’m just getting over my first outbreak. I’ve been reading so many things about what triggers outbreaks and am terrified I’m going to have to give up everything I love. I even saw someone say sex triggered outbreaks for them 😭 I know I can’t compare my body to anyone else’s but I’m curious as to what the most common triggers are?

I have had HSV 1 for 5 years 


Aside from the first set of sores I had, didnt have another sore appear until this year in february (4 and a half years later) - trigger was immense stress but I was arguably under the biggest stress I have ever had in my life which had lasted 2/3 months and I was even put on antidepressants for - to show the magnitude of the stress. 

Since then, nothing! 

Try not to worry too much as its likely you may never have another outbreak again. If you do - usually its MUCH better than the first time. 

Do you have HSV 1 or 2 and what location?
