endless herpes OB

I contracted herpes virus over 20 yrs ago. Suffered a lot tye first few years. My bf at the time didn't share with me he had it until after we had a child. Thankfully I had to have a c section. I began taking valtrex when the OB just kept flaring up over and over. For mant years though I did continue to suffer w/o meds becuz I couldn't afford them. It wasn't til I had medical coverage tht I could take valtrex. It worked the first year. If I took 1 a day I would still get OBs so the dr begrugingly said I could take two a day. Tht did the trick mostly hut I would.still get obs ocassionally.
I was sick last spring and since then I.have had the worst OBs of my life
My lymph nodes are so painful and swollen it hurts to.walk. I can barely sleep I am in such pain.the sores are beyond any I've ever had. My entire body is in constajt pain and I take advil,aleve but nothing seems to even touch the pain iam in on a daily basis. Iam taking valtrex again but it almost seems my body is ammune to.it. the OB s may not alwaysvbe as severe but the pain is truly dibilitating. I have tried aloe vera,tea tree oil,lavender oil,geranium,lemon oil and they used to help the OB to not be so severe if I used tgem as soon as I felt an OB coming on. Nothing helps now. The essential oils really do help healing sores and the little cuts others have mentioned. They are horrible!! I have severe migraines now
with outbreaks and feel sick to my stomach,exhausted and my back
and legs are so painfulo as well as my neck tht iam at the brink

Re: endless herpes OB

I want to say that I am so sorry that you are suffering like you are. You need to find a dr that can find more effective treatment options. I am not familar with this but I am familar with dr's not looking into things. You may need 3 or 4 opinions and maybe a specialist, but you need to find someone that is willing to help you. It may take some time t figure out what the right trick is but I am pretty sure there has got to be something out there. good luck honey
