Outbreak prevention

Recommended Posts

I have a doctors appointment to receive a prescription for antiviral medication. But I'm just wondering if anyone has any tips and/or success stories about diminishing their amount of outbreaks or preventing them for long periods of time?? I think the less outbreaks I have the less stress I will be. (Which we all know contributes to outbreak occurrence) I just get really stressed when I see those little blisters. It's like oh here we go again. I was doing good for awhile. Maybe even convincing myself that I wouldn't have another outbreak...until I do.

@MB28 I am having my first OB so I just started on Valtrex 2000 a day for 10 days. I plan to go on 500 a day for supressive therapy as studies show it really does help with future OB as well as shedding to pass onto partners. I myself, hate taking pills but I have done a ton of research on the drug and it seems to have little to no side affects long term. Good luck!
