"Question about Valtrex"|
I have GHSV1. I've only ever had two outbreaks: the initial one, which was rather painful with about 7 or so sores, and one years later that was barely noticeable. Both times, I took Valtrex as prescribed by my doctor.
The thing is, I don't really think it worked. It didn't seem to make the sores clear up faster at all (they lasted about a week to a week and a half) and it certainly didn't help with pain or healing or anything.
So I'm wondering, how quickly does valtrex work for you? Do you have success with it? I'm thinking maybe I should ask for another med the next time I have an OB, but they are very few and far between, so that might not be for a while.
Anyways, any advice is much appreciated
