Hi so I am 20 & I have been having break outs since I was 18. I found out I had GH after I had Hodgkins' Lymphoma which weakened my immune system, allowing the GH to present itself. If being bald and going through chemo wasn't enough I went through weeks of awful pain at which I still had to go in for treatment and I had no idea what was going on. Once my doctor told me I had Herpes I cried hysterically because I have only been with and still am only with this one man and I thought he had cheated on me and given it to me. But I told him what I had but when he went and got tested he was clean so then he thought I had cheated on him (like my tiny shrivelled self was a boy magnet). So Now I have HV-2 and no idea how I got it. My mom is getting herself tested because she thinks I might have been born with it because my dad dated a girl that had herpes and then maybe my mom got it and then gave it to me but it only presented itself in me because I have no immune system to fight it off. Well, now it's been 3 years since my first outbreak and I get them almost every month and I don't know what to trust as to how to fix it! I know there is no cure but I need help. My doctor gives me these big blue pills that I take for a week and I take em and the break out kinda goes away then comes straight back! And when I use baking soda it burns so bad that I just have to wash it off again. Any remedies for the burning and to make it go away faster! Please! I'm terrified to even have my boyfriend touch me bc we'll start to do it and then I feel them inside me and I just cry because I thought I had finally gotten rid of the soars and there they are back again and it's another moment that I could have given it to the love of my life. It never goes away and i just feel so dirty. I don't even know why he stayed with me after this. Just someone tell how to fix this?!
