I just wanted to say thanks for your support, Catharine! I appreciate your kind words...even though you have no real insight into my question regarding recurrent herpes and a link to recurrent yeast infections.
When I had my first OB of herpes I also had a yeast infection going on. So maybe one can activate the other. I'm thinking the yeast infection when it goes untreated may activate a herpes OB, but I wish I had some real info on this. I've done some reading online, but haven't found anything that useful yet.
