Month long outbreak! Is this normal?


Recommended Posts

Hello all, I have had many outbreaks since getting the bad news last year but this one is terrible; It just won't seem to go away. Has anyone out there experienced this? My life is fairly stressful right now and I think that has something to do with it but still this is by far the worst OB I have had to date. Anybody have any idea how to make this stop? I am on Valtrex (or generic version) no luck. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Hello @Emil65,


The stress is probably a big culprit. You might talk to your doctor about switching to a new antiviral such as Famvir or Acyclovir. Some folks have found that that helps to break these bad cycles. You might also get a check up and try to find out if something else may be going on health wise.


If you haven't already check out WCSDancer2010"s blog http://supporttruthanddialog.com/, it has lots of information you might find useful right now.
