what testing have you had done so far?

did they give you herpes antivirals? if so , which one , what dose and for how many days?


the herpes handbook at www.westoverheights.com is a free and terrific resource you can read online or print out at home. Lots of good info in there in general that you'll need as well as suggestions for pain control.

My suggestions are epsom salt baths. Comforting as well as helps to dry out lesions somewhat.  also dermoplast spray ( the blue can for the genital area, not the red can ). it's a topical anesthetic you can find at most drugstores for under $10. you spray it on periodically for pain relief. Also take plenty of tylenol and advil as needed.  

are you male or female?

they did one test and it was done in the e.r. i didnt ask to many questions on what type of test it was. (was pretty scared at that time)

they did give me Acyclovie 400 mg to take 3 times a day for 10 days. they do seam to be helping.

im a 18 year old female.

thank you for your help

usually first ob lasts the longest .

average recurrence rate is 4-6/year with hsv2.

follow up on your testing to see which type you have too.
