Hey all! Can you guys share some tips for symptom management? Is there something you put directly on the sores or around? a bandaid? idk. It seems to mainly hurt when up and walking which is causing me to now call into work. I am a nurse and move a LOT! This is also my first outbreak in which i only had one sore for a few days and have been taking acyclovir but it seems a second one has appeared today. thank you
I was in excruciating pain during my first outbreak. What helped me – neosporin, drinking lots of water and taking the pills for a uti infection that turn your pee bright orange. I think they are called AZT. It was the only thing that took the sting out of peeing. Also icing down there helped. Fi. The outbreak lasted a week and I had to call in sick and couldn’t work for 4 of those days.
