Alcohol & Herpes

Hi,

I am waiting back for my test results to confirm I have herpes and what type although by a visual inspection my doctor is pretty sure I have it in the genitals and I have already started antiviral medication.

Last night I drank a good amount. I have heard that alcohol might trigger an OB. Would I know if alcohol is a trigger for me if I am on the antiviral? Would I have developed symptoms as my body processed the alcohol or would they appear in a few days?

Hi, forget about alcohol triggering outbreaks, its can cause sever dizzyness and potentially dangerours to mix the 2.

I didn't even think about that. I didn't have any medication side effects while sober or while drinking.
