First Herpes Outbreak

Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed with herpes yesterday after discovering sores. I was put on Acyclovir 200mg 6 doses a day. This morning I woke up and immediately sat in a warm bath as adviced to me and noticed the area was already looking better (after taking a full days dose). However, I spent the day running general errands and when I returned home I was utterly exhausted and the area had swollen back up and seemed to have gotten worse again. I was wondering if that was normal and if I should try to avoid being up on my feet running around until the outbreak has healed.

Hey. I just got over my first outbreak and I found some days were better than others depending on what I was doing! If I was lazy, my sores didn't feel as swollen. I tried to go out one day and after a couple hours of walking, I felt sore and had to go home. Took me about a 10 days before i noticed the sores were going away and I could pee normally again. But everyone is different! What I find helped me most was putting on some penaten cream. It's super thick and acts as a barrier between the sores and the good non infected skin. It helped me to pee and feel comfortable. Hope this helps!
