i'm with slacker 101. A single herpes on your forehead or any part of the body is an outbreak.
I can only speak of my experience with HSV 1 as I get outbreaks more than the common person out there:( I have experiemented with a lot of remedies and found that what works best for me is vygone and prescription drugs. I am kind of against prescription drugs because I don't like paying for them every time I have an outbreak so that leaves me with vygone which I would say works as good or better.
I have been diagnosed with genital herpes, but also get a recurring 'thing' on my forehead, initially blistery, but then just a scab that often moves down toward my nose on the left side of my head always. Right now I am dealing with pretty excruciating back pain, and have entered this site seeking info on that. The pain happens to be during one of these forehead outbreaks, but also related to physical work I think. So confusing to figure out what is causing the back pain. If it is herpes then I am glad since there is not necessarily anything major wrong with my back.
