Is this ok?

Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed with genital herpes last Monday and was given valacyclorvir for 7 days. I finish my pills tomorrow and have also been taking L-lysine and drinking tons of water. I’m  starting to feel myself again and the pain is gone! I look completely normal down there again, is this ok? Am I supposed to be this ok?

I also just got diagnosed recently and I felt the same way, it went away quickly with valtrex and my symptoms were gone within two weeks. Seems typical for a primary outbreak, though I am in the midst of a second fairly painful outbreak after a week being off meds, so just continue to care for yourself and hope for the best

Thank you so much for the advice I will continue to hope for the best. My doctor just called me my lab work came back. I have type 1 which is the most common one. He says stress and weak immune system can be a trigger I just need to find out which one it is. In some people being out in the sun to much can be a trigger, I work out in the sun for 8hrs so i will have to be more careful. If it comes back often then I will have to start taking the meds every day but for now it’s a wait and see. So I have to work on strengthening my immune system and learn to relax more.
