Virus LITERALLY taking over my body

Recommended Posts

I thought I had the virus on 06/22 and called doc. They ignored me. Call back on 07/02 and say I think I have herpes. Get in and get a 7 day treatment of valacyclovir twice a day. Finish that on a Monday morning and call back following Friday since I don’t see any improvement and the flat blisters are spreading. They put me on 2x a day for 10 days, 1x a day for 14 days, then call for suppressive prescription. I’m on Day 7 of the 2x a day. I notice it in my throat and possibly the corners of my eyes. I’ve been VERY careful with hand washing and sanitizing. Constantly. The bumps are getting worse. Here’s my question, do I need to chill out and let the medication get a chance or call doc? I don’t have any pain other than a mild sore throat and itchy eyes. Help!

I would recommend both actually. Relaxation and decrease stress goes a long way in halting the spread and calming down your symptoms needless to say how stress can diminish your immune system and your ability to fight this infection.

I would also recommend getting in touch with an interested physician. Somebody who actually care! You could start by contacting the last position you've been in touch with and the one who prescribed your medication. But at the same time try to get in touch with a physician who is willing to back you up during this recovery. Do not wait for long.
