herpes 2 oral and sun

just was diagnosed two mos ago, had first outbreak when I was skiing with my kid and went out today in the sun and park,(not used to restrictions) feels like another ob coming-- does that make sense? In other words, have you had experience with sun provoking outbreaks --should I try to stay out of the sun entirely? AND
if recurrences are rarewith herpes 2 oral--this seems awfully soon NO?
a month later to have a reccurrencargh
I really hated valtrex and dont want to go back on

Yes, exposure to the sun can trigger an outbreak (at least in people with oral herpes). Try sunscreen, it should help.

You don't have to stay out of the sun... try a lip balm or makeup with sunscreen in it, make sure to reapply with every couple hours of exposure.
