Can I ask what the “O” shot is?April 20, 2021 at 1:56 pm in reply to: Triggers: laser hair removal & subsequent outbreaks #44193
I am unsure what triggers mine which seem to happen every few days after I get cleared up but I am managing as long as I don’t itch which will really make it flare up and angry. They say stress contributes but I am not stressing.
I would go and get it checked out, please.April 17, 2021 at 6:23 pm in reply to: Herpes…Hep B…and Rape…Starting over….Can anyone relate? #44176
What a beautiful response, Annie! I agree, love yourself and take time for self care. I wish you well, Val, and keep posting to reach out for more insights in caring for YOU. I like to journal and it helps tremendously.
Yes, night time seems to be the worst for me as well and extreme itchiness. I didn’t realize they use different meds for different types. They put me on Valacyclovir. I hope you find relief soon!!
Thank you, herlife21 for sharing your experiences and after reading your other posts, I see you are older as I am. So many young people have struggles with this but I applauded you for helping reach out to people and give advice. I am happily married for 31 years and was diagnosed 2 years ago but had already been notified by hubby while dating he had been diagnosed. I just remain symptom free or negative until then and then I had severe autoimmune issues I was dealing with. Then it presented itself, I was quite surprised!
Wow, thank you for the tip and link to the blog! I would also recommend lysine out to 3000 mg per day.
Hello, jaybae1107, welcome and I am sorry you are through this. Just know that many people have this and it can be managed. I do not know how much it will affect your lupus. I actually don’t know what type I have, myself and think they are both treated the same and have the same symptoms. Are you on meds yet? I have been on valacyclovir but now I am taking lysine over the counter supplement and it seems to help me. I wish you all the best, dear one.April 15, 2021 at 8:00 am in reply to: First outbreak (i think?) no sores but flu like symptoms? #44152
Well that is awesome she is so proactive!
MtnMama, thank you so much for providing this perspective!April 14, 2021 at 8:38 pm in reply to: First outbreak (i think?) no sores but flu like symptoms? #44148
Wow, I am surprised they gave you meds already with no testing being done but I think it may nip it right away for you. I wish all the best!April 14, 2021 at 9:20 am in reply to: First outbreak (i think?) no sores but flu like symptoms? #44144
It is interesting how so many different experiences are manifested with people prior and during outbreaks. I didn’t have flu symptoms at all.
Rong, you are back on antivirals after they weren’t working before? Are they helping you at this point?
Shanice, I cannot see your reply as it is marked private. Only the original poster can see it which is you.
