Hi Terri. I had a few questions for you now about an outbreak that I had a few weeks ago. I had an outbreak went on Valtrex and was fine for about two weeks. At the time I was under an extreme amount of stress (this was about spreading it to my hands). I have recently started my anxiety medicine again, but I did end up having another outbreak. I was on Valtrex for two weeks, ending last Friday. During this outbreak I had two small sores, but had continued tingling down the back of my legs. The sores healed in about 2 days, but again the tingling has not stopped. I stopped the Valtrex this past Friday, but I am still have tingling. It does not seem to be as bad, but it is definitely still there. This has been going on for about two weeks straight. Could I still be having an outbreak do you think? I wake up fine, but as the day goes on I start to notice it. Also, on Saturday I noticed that I have become a tiny bit swollen on the outside of my vagina. No itching or blisters. Again, I am getting used to my medicine so my stress has been very high. I appreciate any incite that you have on this. Thank you so much.
