medications for herpes 1?

I just answered this where you asked on another thread:


I guessing what they meant is they don't give Valtrex for HSV1 when its oral ... because "cold sores" are "acceptable". This is the messed up thing - they are ignoring that half of all genital cases now are from Oral sex.


Your best defense is to get well educated (print out the handouts and memorize the facts) then go back in and tell them the stats for HSV1 transmission to genitals via Oral Sex and ask them what you are supposed to do about that? I'd love to hear their answer.


If anyone has a better reason (@Adrial ?) then I'd love to learn why they would not give meds or HSV1 oral.


I for one actually never took anything because it's only relatively recently that it became such a big deal as far as the numbers of people getting HSV1 genital through Oral Sex. What I would do was to put Ammonium Alum on the sores (I think you can only get it online now... but it lasts forever!) but now they have Abreva and such so you may want to get him to try that first.
