Wait it out or....

After being visually diagnosed 2 years ago, I decided to finally get the IGG test done to find out which type I have. When my results came in, HSV 1 was 0.7 and HSV 2 was 0.08. Both are negative however I wasn't thinking about the fact that I am on suppressive therapy so I know that I have HSV 1 just for the simple fact that valtrex causes false negatives and the HSV 1 was so close to being positive. My doctor suggested that I stop the valtrex and I agreed. Its been almost a week and I haven't taken that or my probiotic which I use to keep yeast infections away. Today I noticed that I'm getting itchy and irritated. Would you suggest that I get back on daily meds or ride it out and let my body fight it off?

I would ride it out and see how manageable it is. If you are able to deal with it, then your immune system gets a chance to step up and fight it without help.


One question though, did you wean yourself off or quit cold turkey? Because they suggest weaning yourself off the antivirals.
