Red face Could chronic illness be hormonal issue?

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone can help me.

I've been infected with HSV1- herpes cold sore virus- my whole life. For the past YEAR, however, I've been getting CONSTANT, SEVERE cold sores, all over BOTH lips - and they just don't stop. I've been to an infectious disease doctor who ran tests on my blood and said that they only thing he found was that my herpes levels were SKY HIGH.

I'm wondering if my situation is exasperated by a possible hormonal imbalance. I'm 28, and on YASMIN for about 7 months, now. I was on Alesse before that. I've been on some form of BC pill for 8 years now. I am proned to react poorly to stress and get mentally and physically exhausted often. I have high adrenaline issues as well.

I'm healthy, otherwise, and take good care of myself . No caffeine, no drinking or smoking.

I just went to a hormone specialist who told me to get some blood work done, then it's off to an Allergist/immunologist.

Does anyone have any input? Does anyone suffer from chronic illness due to hormones?

I have been having a lot of problems in the last year or so, my doc is suspecting hormones are to blame for a lot of it, so yes, imbalanced hormones can cause a lot of problems, don't know if that is your problem but it is possible.
