I've had a painful genital prodrome for over 14 days continuously. It's been off and on for the past 5 months, I had an actual outbreak 5 months ago, have had genital herpes for 11 years and it's never been this bad. I take 1GM of Valtrex daily and in desperation I bought Viralprin as a supplement. I have been under quite a bit of stress lately, however this does not seem right. Nothing's helping. My doc told me there's nothing he can do. Is this true and could this be indicative of another problem?
Just pain and not any obvious lesions isn't likely to be herpes going on this long. I'd seek out the opinion of another provider if yours isn't helpful to figure out what is going on. Just because you have herpes, doesn't mean that everything that goes on is herpes down yonder.
