I was diagnosed with GH on Feb 2011. It was the most painful experience of my life, I thought my life was over. I refused to believe what it was although I had all the symptoms until I tested positive. I was given valtrex and in two days I felt so much better. Since then I have had two outbreaks and I have to say thank God they werent as painful. I got an ob less than a month after my first. This devastated me and I looked for alternative methods to avoid having an outbreak every month. Lysine and olive leaf extract work wonders!!! 1000mg a day and if you feel a tingle double the intake. Take as many vitamins as you can, they help in one way or another. I didnt have an ob again until a few weeks ago tgat I went on vacation and stopped taking my vitamins, Im sure the ob had everything to do with that. The itch is intense, thanks to this website I made a paste with water tylenol pm and vagisol satin and the itch immediaty stopped it was like I was normal again. I was so happy I cried. I love this website. Its so hard to believe that this disease afflicts so many good people, I was ignorant to believe it only happened to promiscuos people. Therw is help out there, find something that works for you and stick to it. Dont let this disease take control of your life. Good luck everyone. You are not alone.
