Going back to October I was sick with a sore throat,swollen glands, fever, body aches and was put on antibiotics( thinking it could be strep-came back negative) about 2 weeks later had the same symptoms arise, but a new one this time- vaginal sores, i went straight to the obgyn and they pretty much said just from looking at me it was HSV and did a vaginal swab and prescribed me Valtrez, the pain lasted a couple days and all my symptoms went away but my test results came back negative.
Fast foward to February ( 3months later) and the same thing reccurred and I was in alot more pain than the first time, but this time they also said I have a bacterial infection. So same thing happened subscribed me valtrex and flagyl( for the infection), but it seemed like this one was more painful this time. They also did another vaginal swab and that came back negative again, so they said to go get the blood test done but that came back negative too.
Fast forward again to now (3months later) about a month ago i had the same symptoms but no vaginal sores so my Dr. thought it might be strep, cultured came back negative but was put on penicillan for 10days, by that 10th day I was sick again with the same symptoms but still no sores, so I was tested for mono and strep again but obviously that came back negative, but was still put on Z-pac which I end about a week and a half ago. Now just two days ago the same symptoms came back and I noticed to little red dots on my vagina so I went back to the obgyn and the Dr. thinks I have a yeast infection from the antibiotics, in which the results came back negative. I started today Valtrex 500mg 2x/day for 5 days. The sores have finally turned into ulcers and pretty much look like craters. I haven't had another culture/blood test done yet, but from what I read it might be too late.
My question are:
1) Does it sound to you like this is HSV?
2) Do I need to have something else going on to start suppressive therapy w/ Valtrex?
