I understand that once you have an established hsv2 genital infection, you are immuned to acquiring an hsv2 oral infection, but lets just say that it did happen.
1. If I already had hsv2 genitally and later aquired hsv2 orally, would that new oral hsv2 infection, since it is at a new site be considered a first episode? Or if I already had hsv2 gentially, would the newly acquired oral hsv2 infection be considered an outbreak, as far as treatment goes?
2. Is valtrex better than acyclovir? If so, can you please explain?
3. I know what the recommended dose is for acyclovir, but what is the recommended dose for valtrex in the treatment of hsv2 infections?
4. If a person has hsv2 orally and genitally, would an oral outbreak trigger a genital outbreak, and will a genital outbreak trigger an oral outbreak, since they are both hsv2?
This is my last post in this subscription. Hopefully this concludes all of my questions….but probably not.
