I was just diagnosed today with HSV-2. I have had it for about a week, and am in so much pain. I have read a lot of posts here and started the lysine a few days ago as well as using witch hazel and vitamin e oil after i go to the bathroom. Nothing is helping. I started acyclovir today and am hoping it helps since nothing else has yet. I get anxiety every time i have to go to the bathroom because it hurts so much. I am unsure of who i got it from, but am assuming it is the person i am currently seeing because i got the outbreak directly after being with them. Is it possible i could have had it before? How fast does the medication typically start to work? Is there anything i can take for the pain?
