Supression Therapy
I commonly get cold sores from HSV1 6-8 times a year, and I've decided to go on supression therapy with antiviral medication.

First, I've heard that outbreaks get easier/lesser later on in life, is this true? Will my immune system build up resistance?

Secondly, can the virus build resistance to the antiviral drugs?

Is the best mode of taking these antiviral medications to take them continuously, once a day for the rest of my life, or should I only take them during outbreaks?

I also take T-supplements (testosterone), is there any link between T levels and outbreaks? I've read online that low-T can cause outbreaks, while taking supplements may trigger them also (a post read on this forum).

Help!

Thanks
