Post outbreak itching

Recommended Posts

So I had my very first outbreak Jan 10.

It lasted about 7-10 days....worst pain in my life.

Now a few weeks later I am still itchy down there.

It's itchy inside and outside.

From the time I cleared up until now I've been itchy.

My doctor says it may still be healing, your body is

getting used to it, your nerves are "mad".

I'm taking 500mg Valtrex everyday as suppressive therapy

since I am in a relationship (as per my doctor). Do you think

That's making me itchy? Did anyone else experience this?

Like I said it's been about 3 weeks since my ob. It's driving me nuts!!!!

This is after everything healed. My dr gave me 1% hydrocortisone mixed with clomitrazole which I believe is Canesten cream to apply twice a day for the itching. I have only just started using it once a day and it seems better. But I'm also under a lot of stress dealing with the fact of having herpes and something else going on in my life so I don't know if it's that that could be aggravating the itch. I'm pretty sure I'm not getting another outbreak but who knows. It seems to get very itchy at night too.
