Why Does my Outbreaks Keep spreading, and never get better?

Hi, I Was told by the STD clinic that I have herpes Sept. 21 of 2011. I had one outbreak that lasted for about 9 days On my Lower area. It went away, than now on the 5 of this month Ive had signs on Blisters In my Throat, my gums, under my tongue. And Underneath My penis, above my test. And it keeps getting worse. Ive been taking 1ooomg lysine tablets 3 times a day, since the outbreaks ive up'd it to 6 a day. Allso Vit, D3 10,000 IU Tablets one a day, and vit. C once a day allso. Ive put tea tree oil on the lower sores, than baby powder to keep them dry. It works, but not realy. But nothing is helping my throte at all.. Idk what to do, and Im realy starting to feel like S**t. Can anyone help me please. I just Olive leaf suplament, zinc Lozenges , and oil of oregano.. and Idea If this Will work? I hope it does.

lysine isn't really effective for herpes. No reason to be using it. same as all the other supplements you are using. you should stop using them at this point in case they are adding to your issues. same as no more TTO at this point either since that can cause skin reactions in some folks.

what testing was done originally to diagnose you as having genital herpes? Do you know if you have hsv1 or hsv2 genitally?

you need to be seen every single time you have symptoms orally or genitally for a proper exam to better find out what is going on. It's doubtful that this is all herpes related.

thanks grace, umm ... they did a cotton swab on my lower area, and said it had come back posative for HSV. Im just confused because there are many things than can be miss taken for HSV. I know what the original outbreak had looked like when it happend and these dont seem to be the same.

Also my Ganital area, my testicals and lower part of the shaft had started peeling a few days ago... I thought it was an outbreak at first because it was red and puffy, but I used the TTO and now all the skin has dried and flaked off.. and it never turned into a sore. any ideas?

My dr, said i mite have dyshidrosis.. could this have cause the problem? because the flaking is on my hands, stomach, and chest?

really, stop using the TTO. I love the stuff myself for many things but it is a skin irritant as well as dries out the skin and you should stop using it at this point.  


see a dermatologist regularly to get to the bottom of this all. Usually dyshidrosis only causes symptoms on the hands and feet. it wouldn't cause you genital and oral symptoms.  

keep in mind that just because you know you have herpes, doesn't mean everything that goes on is due to herpes. it's a bad trap to fall into!
