I found out a couple of months ago that I have GH. I do not have insurance, so I had gone to the emergency room after the pain and sores got so bad I couldn't take it. It only took a week. I was lucky enough on my SECOND emergency room visit to get a doctor that included refills on my prescription of Acyclovir. My issue is that every time I finish a ten day course, I have an outbreak again! I do everything I'm supposed to do, I haven't had any sex of any kind since I first presented with symptoms. I wear loose fitting cotton clothing, I have always been very particular about feminine hygiene, I don't smoke, I stopped drinking completely, I take Echinacea every day, but it never fails a few days after I finish a course of pills, I'm in agony. I started another ten day course today and I have ONE refill left and then I have no idea what I'm going to do. Going to the emergency room every time I run out is just putting me another $400 in debt per visit. I never thought this would happen to me, but now I need to figure out how to deal with it. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you, in advance.
