I was prescribed Valtrex 250mg 3 times per day and it helped with the actual sore but the other symptoms are still moderate to severe. I have read that some people have post herpetic neuralgia with HSV 2. How long does it last?
i only get outbreaks once in a while and they are very mild. maybe 10 in the last thirty years. i don't take anything in the way of medicine. i have been with virus free women and not worn a condom... i was told i was only infectious when i had a sore.... but non of them have gotten herpes... to my knowledge
I had the impression from a blood test in 2007 that I had "Had" the virus but that it could be a false test. Never had any kind of symptom, and now that I have had an uncomfortable outbreak I am very sure were I definitely have it now, as the blood test said so this time as well. Now I definitely have it and there are obvious symptoms though mostly internal it's painful so I think I'd know if I had it before?
