Unhappy How to stop Outbreaks on my face?

I got herpes when I was 17 in 2007, you couldn't notice it on my face, I only had maybe one or two bumps on the skin between my nose and mouth, a year later, it started on the other side of my face, then in april of this year my chin was looking very red, and bumpy, and in May I noticed I had bumps in my mouth, then in August, my skin on both sides of my nose and between my mouth, got very, very red and now theres usually 10-20 bumps, and my chin is a disaster. It's under neath both my eyes, the redness has died down a bit, but that doesn't happen too often. Every day I hope when I wake up that my face looks better, but it doesn't. I'm constantly trying new face washes to see if it helps, and sometimes the redness is gone, but I still have bumps. I wear coverup on the spots around my mouth. I feel hopeless, and I cry all the time. I haven't even spoken to a doctor or to anyone about it. I just want a good list of things to try that I CAN buy over the counter or on the store shelves. I hate talking to people, or being in bright light, because you can get a good look at my skin. I'm becoming very anti-social, and even more depressed. I still live with my parents and I don't want them knowing. What kind of vitamins could I buy too? The bumps never hurt either, I just want them to be gone from my face, and I want my face to be back to normal again. I just feel like giving up, I hate it. I wish I could go back 2 years and say no like how I wanted to :'(

Re: How to stop Outbreaks on my face?

I have almost the same problem and i take valtrex daily and use zovirax creme when they appear on my mouth. I also have hsv 2 genital and the valtrex helps with both hsv1 and hsv2. You should look in to getting it from the doctor also i use lysine tablets 1000mg daily for herpes. It helps the skin heal and you can also try aloe gel. Good luck and be well.

Re: How to stop Outbreaks on my face?

first off, i am so sorry you are going through this, and going through it all alone, it sounds like.

go talk to a doctor; find a good family doctor if u can. try getting valtrex, that may help. try l-lysine vitamins daily - go to drugstore for those. there is a cold sore lip cream called super lysine that i actually use on my genitals, and it works. cuts recovery time in half.

if i think of anything more, i'll let u know. please take care, and don't cut yourself off from the rest of the world.
