I am experiencing a primary outbreak from suspected HSV1 genital. A swab was taken (results due next week) and Dr. prescribed Valtrex. Blisters on my labia, perineal area began popping and oozing 24 hours ago, and still weeping like crazy. I have been cleaning every hour or 2 with cotton pads dipped in salt water or an epsom soak followed by blow dry. Wondering 1) how long does this stage usually last? 2) is there any more I can be doing to expedite healing/drying up?
