Thank you for the reply. I plan to contact my doctor and start some kind of suppressive medication. I know from the pictures I have genital herpes. I do also know that I will be tested by my doctor to be sure. Maybe 3 times over the last 15 years I have had an outbreak and usually it lasted only a few days and since that time I have not had unprotected sex. This outbreak has been different. It has spread more and has lasted longer. (thus my planned doctor visit) I just want to get over this outbreak and then go in to see him. Yes I do need something just to soothe the symptoms until I can do something long term. Again thank you for all your help..
