Genital herpes lasting almost 4 weeks

Recommended Posts

@Chelsea514 I am in the same boat as you. I have had nonstop prodrome and sores for the past 6 months. I checked in the mirror with a flashlight, and it almost seems like the sores in my case haven't really healed. I am making an appt with an obgyn soon to check it out. I have tried changing my diet to avoid arginine, sleeping more, taking supplements, but so far nothing has helped. I will say that vaseline provides a good barrier and comfort, but I don't want to keep using a petroleum product down there and am looking at alternatives like olive oil and coconut oil.

Have you tried taking antivirals?

yes I’m on acyclovir. 500mg a day.  I sleep with Benadryl now for the itching and I see small improvements.  I just started vitamin c and am going to get coconut oil cream and L Lysine today.  I don’t have sores tho. I have unbelievable itching and sharp pains


I’m so upset

I hope you get better fast.
I’ll let you know if anything starts really working.  So far I hit a dead end
