I have what I believe is an outbreak. I have a bump that looks like a pimple and 3 others under it(in a row) the first one has a white top but the other 3 are just red looks like irritation dots I’ve been take valtrex 1g since Friday.... how long before the meds work? Should it be going away by now? I don’t or haven’t had any other symptoms aside from that. No irritation no burning no itching ..... nothing

Not for me that’s all I have. I have no pain or irritation so it wasn’t for the actual bumps I would t even k ow anything was going on but bc I’m paranoid I look down there everyday. I’m not In pain, no irritation, nothing I e been taking valtrex since Friday and it still looks the same not better not worse

I am getting over my first outbreak (OB) and I started Valtrex on a Saturday. I believe I started noticing relief on either the Tuesday or Wednesday after. It is a slow process, but with time you will get relief. At this point I’ve been on 2 grams for 8 days and I still dont believe im completely over this OB. FYI I have HSV1 still in disbelief but I am coping. I hope this information helps.
