I was just diagnosed with genital herpes following a rape. It's been a difficult diagnosis to absorb and process.

Having the virus and my first outbreak gave me bell's palsy on both sides of my face. My right side is healed, but not the left.

I've been on 2 courses of Valtrex and 2 courses of acyclovir. My doctor says that I'll likely need a daily dose of an anti viral to calm down the outbreaks. I've been off of acyclovir for about a week, and I discovered a new, very painful blister.

Are there any home remedies or any OTC treatments that help?

    I use abreva topical. It says it’s for the mouth but I use it below & it really works for me.

    That’s crazy yes abreva is the only cream that works no off brand! What about prescription I’ve never tried it before
