After over the past 6 months ive been having tiny outbreaks... but nun serious ..until recently when i was put on kerflex to treat my abcess (abscess) .. i now have the worse herpes out break i have ever had .. i decided to purchase the same medication ..and use it but its been 3 days n it still looks horrible should i conttinue ? also i started dating a guy with herpes .. and we had unprotected the beginning of this month could i have been misdiagnosed since this looks more like the pictures of herpes i see on the internet ... unlike my "first outbreak" which was rather painful but didnt last this long
