I’m supposed to take one gram a day, but I found that when I did that I still got them frequently.
So I only take it when I feel a tingle , I take about 4 and it never comes out. ""I'm 48 and I was diagnosed with genital herpes when I was 35.
What sucks is when I don’t get the tingle and I just wake up with a full blow on sore/sores. I started dating a new guy and within 2 weeks I felt horrible burning when I urinated.
I went to my midwives and sure enough I had herpes.
it then got very uncomfortable and burned while I urinated. Tuesday I went to the dr and she said it looked like Herpes. I find this drug debilitating and will go to see an optician about my virus.""I had a sudden onset of cold sores and a new one was appearing each day. I had my initial outbreak last year and thankfully had no pain, just itchiness.
Finally, I took my camera down there and wanted to look... It's only been a day and it doesn't feel like it's working. But I still feel like I'm on fire, I'm itchy, and it still burns like crazy. ""This is the only thing that works for myself stress induced break outs (college). I believe when I first started using acyclovir it was more effective and now it can take a good 4-5 days to fully heal. I am on immunosuppressants so my body just can't fight this virus on its own. This medication was amazing- within 24-48 hrs the blisters were crusting over. Got the sores and went to the doc- 800mg 3 times a day for 10 days. I always keep it on me and I am to take 200mg 5x daily if I start to have another breakout.""I suddenly keep getn these horrible cold sores like I was slit with a razor outside in like half inch splits that sting so bad n a couple times I've gotten a single sore down unda that hurts n is red.
He was a creep all the way around but that's the only person I've could've got it from and I'm positive about that.Abreva only works if u use it at the 1st sign of a cold sore, once the sores there it will not work n that's a big waist of money""Ive been diagnosed with this about 2 maybe 3 weeks ago ..boyfriend gave it to me i found out when he had a breakout...night before we had sex so we both went to the er to find out whats wrong .... Then I took 6,000 mg of Lysine, that did not help at all. I felt that white vinegar helped a bit and cornstarch was soothing.I have not had a break out was on the 5 pill a day thing but my body couldnt handle it so the doctor put me on the pill i time a day ...whats going on but now I cant pee ive been trying to pee for 14 hours..feels like I have to go then when I sit on the toilet nothing but a few drops come out""I was diagnosed with HSV-2 five years ago. I was not in a sexual relationship but this week I had sex after my menstrual cycle. I took 2 Epsom salt baths a day and that was soothing also.The only thing that helped was Acyclovir all symptoms went away right away.""I have been taking generic (cheap) acyclovir for 52 years.I am 67 and contracted the herpes simplex while out in the sun at age 15.
