i am on 2 pills per day and they are 250mg pills and i have been taking them for a week but the lesions havnt gone but i have had a very stressful wk and i have not been looking after myself so maybe thats why.
what other medicines are there that i can take to help and is there creams for down below too?
actually famvir is now a one day dose for ob's - 1gm 2x/day for 1 day. You will still have lesions but it does all it's going to do as far as speeding healing.
I'd just try things at this point like tub baths with epsom salts thrown in and if you still have lesions after 2 weeks, be seen for a proper exam to see if it's more than just your herpes going on at the moment. You'd need tested for bacterial and fungal infections vaginally when seen too since both can be an issue.
thanx grace so its not goin to get rid of the lesions then?i thought the pills would help keep them away and i am taking them every day too.how do they go away?i am super stressed and since all this stress has started i have been gettin weird bumpy things on my lips too which has never happened before so why is it that im not the medication that is meant to get rid of them and now im gettin more :( im more sad bout the fact that i am inlove with some1 and i cant be with them cos of this herpes crap....sooooo depressed rit now.i hate my life cos of this,i feel like it ruined my life.i wish there was a cure.i know they dont hurt us but who is goin to want me now??im sorry for being so negative but im just being real and honest and saying what i feel.
so the epsom salts will help them go then?cool il give it ago,i might try and have some dettol and teatree baths too.
thanx grace i dont know wht i would do without this site and your advice,im going crazy and worrying myself sick over this.
ohh yeh is there creams i can get from the doc that will help me for down below,i never had them down below til recently n its cos of all the stress and drinking cos i have been going out drinking a fair bit lately and my job is exetremely stressful so i think its not helping my lesions.is there any company in the world trying to find a cure cos its like they dont worry about finding a cure for herpes as much as other viruses or diseases.
i hope to god they find a cure or vaccine so then no1 can catch this thing.its very contagious i have read and people can even catch it from sharing drinks etc.
how common is type 2?is it just as common or is it just type 1 that is common?
sorry for all the questions im just sooo down and out and need to know as much as possible.
