Can't say: Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health, but steroids are given to prevent long term chronic pain (use brief; data not great that it works). Valtrex gets rid of virus; use is 1-2wk Might be reasons NOT to use a lot of Prednisone (diabetes for example). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Everytime I have sex my symptoms act up and it is painful and sore so I stop and double my Valtrex then have sex and it happens again- advice?
Not herpes: Sex doesn't trigger herpes outbreaks. Something else probably is causing these symptoms, especially if you only have vaginal irritation without visible herpes blisters/sores. Taking extra Valtrex won't help. A yeast infection would be a good bet; or maybe allergy to latex if your partner is wearing a condom. See your gynecologist or whatever doctor is managing your herpes. Good luck. ...Read more

Cold sores: The cold sores are caused by one of the herpes viruses, either type i or type ii. The second was considered just genital but you can be infected in any location by either.
