    HSV1 and Valtrex
    dumbluck posted:
    Hi all,
    Confirmed last night that I have HSV1 genital. Have been on Valtrex since Tuesday night. Very mild ob, one visible bump, no itching, no burning, just pain during sex. Which is why I ended up at the doctor. Had a tear and became infected orally. However there is pain on the inside the vagina, left side to be exact. Could this be a bump inside as well? This is the only pain I have and am curious to know when will the pain go away?

    Thanks in advance.

    If the hear is inside the vagina that is most likely why you are feling pain. I would lay off the sex for about a week and then try slowly to see if it has hraled.

    To learn more read the Herpes Handbook etc as per my signature line.

    I tried Valtrex but it was ineffective, and gave me side effects. I hope you have a better experience with it.

    If it doesn't work or if you are interested in a natural approach, check out Viradux-AU. I've been using it for 7 months and have not had an outbreak since. The pain and weird tingly feeling is gone too. I will keep you guys posted, don't mind being a guinnea pig. It's from some australian company called viradux.

    I tested positive for HSV2 3 yrs ago so I've been around the track a few times on these meds... Reply if you have any questions.

    This stuff sounds like a money making company that will take your money and will not heal you.
