How long does primary outbreak last? I’m coming up on 3 weeks and while it’s getting better, I still have symptoms (irritation mostly where I saw blister/sore)
Usually not that long
Moving forward, how do I distinguish between a regular vaginal itch Vs potential outbreak? Should I automatically get an antiviral?
I think you should try to visualize any break in the skin – that would be the best indicator
Regarding shedding, I thought I read somewhere that it lessens as time goes on? Meaning 3 mo out, 6 mo etc
Yes, at both of those times and more over the next few years.
Any long term issues for being on anti viral for extended length of time?
Does having GHSV1 offer any protection to catching HSV 2?
Probably not much, if any
Do antiviral offer any protection for catching HSV2?
Probably not, no
Is it a blood test to test for knowing is someone has HSV2? I’m not engaging in anything with anyone moving forward without a full Check for STDs
Yes, that would work
Is there any research on cannabis as being an effective treatment for symptoms for herpes?
