User name does not check out.Don’t be too down about it. I’ve had both 1 and 2 for nearly a decade. I don’t take Valtrex regularly and only have about one mild outbreak a year. It’s very difficult to transmit the virus without an active outbreak. Luckily you can actually feel the blister beginning to form and at that point you can take a megadose of Valtrex over two days which prevents the virus from bubbling up to the surface. I keep this megadose on hand so it’s available in a pinch, whether at home or on vacation. The doctor will know the amount to prescribe. If you’re still on the dating market there are websites specifically for HSV positive singles. This infection has existed since at least antiquity (the name herpes comes ancient Greek) and was not a big deal at all until Valtrex was invented and the stigma manufactured by big pharma to create a market for the drug. There are also more natural remedies you can research online, including certain amino acids and foods like beets. I’ve used tea tree oil and Desitin to speed healing, but since using the megadose these have become superfluous. Good luck, and keep your head up.
