It’s for HSV1. I believe I was negative prior to june interaction due to only experiencing symptoms after that. I never had a cold sore prior.
This started as a burning and redness in perineum area with no sores, then eventually Irritation in the nose and above the lips. (Never on the lips).
To help me process this, could you answer by line each of my questions?
Regarding shedding, so I only Shed from my nose? Like inside or exterior as well. And for mouth, if I have no sores? So people can kiss my cheek or touch my face and not be infected asystematicly from touching me and themselves?
And to be clear for a male, I can only shed on shaft of penis and anus? So not from pubic area, inner thighs or but?
My PCP told me that valtrax is not good to take for longer then a few months and wants me to get off of it. Is this accurate? Seems conflicting to what I’ve learned
Also, since taking supressive therapy for 6 straight months I’ve become familiar with the taste of my prescription pill. I’ve noticed that sometimes when I like my lips or around my mouth, I can taste it on my skin. Is this an undocumented sign of shedding? I know that sounds odd.
