Okay so I recently went to the gyno and had a full std panel. To my surprise it came back positive for hsv 1 and hsv 2. Its been about a month since I got that news and I guess I'm having my primary outbreak currently(I'm going on day 3) and this is seriously the most painful thing I've ever felt. I started my valtrex yesterday. I think the worst thing is when I have to pee it is excruciating. I also have been having to pee quite frequently so was wondering if that was normal. I've been drinking normal amounts of fluids. I have found that aloe Vera gel with lidocaine relieves it a good bit. Also warm Epsom salt baths as well. I really only don't hurt when I'm sitting down or laying down, and with my work I stand all day. Does anyone know of anything to make it not so painful to pee? I'm seriously in tears every time I go. I've also started taking a daily combination of vitamins to hopefully help my immune system. I really hope after this initial OB that it won't be this bad because this is ridiculous.
