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?
I cannot tell you if you are shedding virus from your mouth or nose as I don’t know if your infection is oral or genital. If oral, then the answer is, possibly from both, and mostly from inside. People can touch you face and not be infected, correct.
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?
Correct, unless you have an active lesion that could shed
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
It is inaccurate.
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.
I’ve never heard anyone tell me they can taste valtrex, but asymptomatic viral shedding has not taste.
