I am 17 about to turn 18 and a college student. I'm a freshman and the whole college life is a stress fest. I am in a relationship with an older guy and he gets cold sores. We had oral sex but he wasn't having an outbreak so we didn't think anything was harmful about it.WRONG!!! Over the previous weekend I shaved and immediately after I felt alot of irritation which I thought came from me shaving then I noticed what looked like a little cut a day later. By this Monday I was ignorantly having my first outbreak. I have previously been hospitalized for major over stressing(asthmatic so dangerous to stress). I went to the doctor Tuesday and he told me that it was probably Herpes II. Naturally as a teenager dealing with stress and hormones I cried which might I add made my outbreak jump to an all time hell!!!! At first wen I noticed the sores I put peroxide and Triple Antibiotics on it and peroxide which didn't do anything for me except make everything look horrible. I kept using the Triple Antibiotics and petroleum jelly to help stop burning when I urinated but it barely worked. I started doing research and learned that I helped my outbreak spread and get worse. So I ended up coming across this site and I feel way better. I have been crying my eyes out(learned to stop that one). I feel alone sometimes and I feel disgusting. I try to clean the puss out as much as possible but lately the pain is becoming to intense!!! I haven't drunken anything in the past 2 days because I'm terrified of urinating. But all this isn't the worse of my problems besides this virus my dr called me yesterday morning and told me I had a bacterial and yeast infection. Now I'm taking Valtrex and some other medicines. Pain pills don't help. I have cream for the yeast infection that I have to use at night time only and that shit burns like the deepest pits of hell. I couldn't move for 3 hours. I am now taking Vitamin E pills;I busted them and applied it but it only worked until I had to use that cream. SO now I'm back on here looking for some help. I see that the Tylenol PM thing is a hit so I'm bout to try it. Everybody on this page has made me feel like I can do this.I feel like this thing has control over my life right now but I hope to soon flip it. Thank Everybody on here for their wonderful advice. Also the guy that I got it from is 100% behind me and is very helpful with the situation. He said if he has it then it changes nothing about us and that really shows me that even with this there is still a life for me. So to anybody that is having their first outbreak and you feel all hope is lost remember that with support, faith, prayer, and this website your life won't be hell all the time. I hope this Tylenol helps because I haven't shut my eyes in a full 24 hrs and I'm so tired.
