    Unhappy 2nd genital hsv1 outbreak

    I got diagnosed with genital hsv1 two years ago, had a little ob (I honestly don't even remember how bad it was), got tested and that's how I knew what it was. The doctor didn't give me any meds or cream and told me if I got another ob to go back for some valtrex.

    I got a second outbreak about 2 days ago , I was itching about a week before but having another ob didn't even cross my mind because I only had one 2 years prior, just thought I was irritated from shaving. Yesterday it got substantially worse, fever, swollen glands, itching and burning terribly and more blisters/ulcers (I have about 10 down there now, but theyre really tiny, not red, just small little pimple like bumps).

    I've been keeping the area clean and dry, taking Lysine, and advil/painkillers and just ordered some h-balm,zinc, echinacea and cornstarch. I don't have health insurance anymore and buying rx drugs on the internet is so pricey, any advice as to over the counter or home remedies to help heal faster?

    Any advice would help : )

    The L-lysine will help tremendously. If you can handle the stinging, dabbing hydrogen peroxide on the sores with a q-tip also cuts down on how long the outbreak will last. But..it STINGS! Only for a couple of seconds, but it is very effective. Also, once the peroxide dries I dab some aloe vera gel on the sore. I also take garlic pills and acidophilus supplements. Doing all of this has cut down my latest outbreak to less than a week.

    You can also take epsom salt sitz baths. They help as well.

    Re: 2nd genital hsv1 outbreak

    Herpes is one of the most misunderstood std's out there. The simple truth is that 90% of the adult population has it but doesn't realize it. If you ever get a fever blister you have herpes. The only difference between mouth herpes and the other kind is simply where it's located. It's the same virus, resting at the back of your brain untill something triggers it and you get an outbreak. There is no difference in oral herpes and the other kind, just the location, and there is no cure for herpes, though drugs such as Valtrax can stop an ourbreak once you get one. Odds are these wrestlers already had the virus and why the big to do here is beyond me.

    Good luck to you all!

    Thanks everyone. I'm not sure what positiveguy is trying to say (that valtrex doesnt work?) but yea, I've done enough research (i think we all have) to know there obviously no cure, but there are many over the counter remedies for ORAL hsv-1 but not many for genital, which was why I was asking for your help, and thanks again!
