good morning doctor, I am edwin from Australia. I have a concern regarding something. I have being recently diagnosed with herpes simplex (genital) the doctor prescribed valacyclovir 500 mg BD i am also taking medication to boost the immune system. all the blisters that i had around my anus are not as bad as they were two weeks ago when they appeared the first time . the doctor told me to take that antiviral for 10 days, i have already finished it but although the blisters seem to be healing well, I am still feeling the tingling and itchyness around the anal and perineum are. I still also feel it in my penis, scrotum and sometimes in the face, i put zovirax when i feel it around the lips. anyway, should i go back to the doctor for more valacyclovir ? i still have 17 tablets left. do you think i should try another antiviral ? is ti normal to still feel that tingling sensation and itchtyness after 10 days of being on the medication? thank you very much for your help doctor, i really appreciate it

A female friend was recently diagnosed with HSV. She contracted the virus from a man she had been dating for around a year. He did not divulge that he was HSV + until she developed symptoms, went to her ob/gyn & was diagnosed HSV+. When she told the HSV + man of her circumstance, he confessed he was HSV +. She immediately ended the relationship. This happened 10 months ago. Since this time she has had almost constant genital breakouts. She is extremely anxious, which I think increases her chance of breakouts secondary to stress. She is an otherwise healthy 62 y/o widow who takes no other medications than Acyclovir 500 mg 5X Daily. Should her physician consider other antiviral agents (famcyclovir, valacyclovir) and an anxiolytic (mild) for possible stress-related outbreaks. Are there other treatment options (e.g., vaccines) or the possibility of participating a research ongoing research protocol?
