The evils of Valtrex?..and other things

I had seen an earlier post about becoming immune to Valtrex. This slightly worries me as I take it daily and it doesn't keep my ob under control, it only eases my symptoms (to which I am extremely grateful for). I know there is a potential for kidney damage and that's a no win situation on either side; I get horrible flu like symptoms and pain or I get kidney damage. I don't know if I'm ready to ween myself off a daily dose of Valtrex for herbal remedies. I haven't been taking the vitamins and exercising long enough to get it under control. I know you guys aren't doctors, but I want to hear what you all have to say about this. I'm curious.

Does anyone get better results taking a multi vitamin or just taking vitamin c and zinc? And if take the vitamin c and the zinc, should I add in the multi vitamin along with it? I was always told "moderation in all things" which is why I ask.

This question is geared more toward women; you know that scented salt scrub stuff that's so popular now? Someone gave me a big container of it that smells like warm vanilla. I was sitting in the bathtub the other day, started to use it and thought to myself "Hmmm...this might not be good on my ob" Anyone used it while sitting in the bathtub WITH an ob? Would it help or hinder if I used it?
