Hello, I started having my first genital ob about two months ago. Since then, the first spot has completely resolved, but others have cropped up. I've not had a break since they started - I get a new one almost every week. I'm not taking any prescriptions, since I can't afford it; just vitC & zinc. Basically, I want to know if all of this is still a "primary" ob, or if they're just continuing back to back. I'm worried still about auto-inoculation, like to my face or eyes, though I try to be careful about washing my hands a lot. Also, once I get past the primary, can I move this around on my body, like during sex or to my fingers during my period? Thanks.
Outbreaks tend to be rather frequent in the beginning. Read up about known triggers and learn to avoid them. Herpes is a virus of opportunity. When it senses a weakened immune system, it pounces. It may help to avoid over exposure to the sun, avoid exhaustion, eat healthy and regularly... don't miss meals, and of course, avoid stress.
