I'm 24 and a diabetic on an insulin pump, and just a few months ago found out I have herpes simplex 2, it's the worst thing you could ever go thru, the pain is unbearable even with pain meds, I have tried everything I could and still have yet to find something that actually works. A hot bath is bout the only thing that helps but once I dry off I'm miserable again. All the symptoms drive me absolutely crazy, the itching n tingling n burning omg. I take acyclovir and am on tylonol 3 and even take ultram 50mg, still no relief. I tried baking soda paste and never again will I do that it burned so bad I screamed. I'm to scared to try again, I don't handle pain very well and do not want to make it worse... I just wanted to share my story, it is embarrassing and makes life harder specially relationships, but I'm not alone in this battle and neaither are you. It's hard to deal with but eventually the symptoms go away. I wish u all the best and a speedy recovery.
