I have herpes and have been prescribed anti viral medication to take everyday, however at the moment I have an aggressive flare up will these work?
Increase the dose: Assuming acyclovir or valacyclovir for suppression, during an outbreak you should increase the dose for a few days. Check with the doctor or clinic who prescribed it for the exact dose and duration. You can also ask if you should take a higher dose for ongoing treatment.

Likely: Genital herpes can and often does infect the oral region in the form of classic cold sores.

I masturbate at least 13-15 times a day but will i get like penis herpes or something will it not work anymore?
I just read something about a product called "Herpes Cleanse" it breaks down the ICP47 barrier and the virus itself. But would it actually work?
It's a scam: ICP47 is an HSV gene; inhibiting it in theory could be the basis of herpes treatment. But Herpes Cleanse is a quack product that has no effect on ICP47 or the virus.

I had a needle stick at work and needle stick after giving insulin Person has history of Herpes simlex ?
Was event reported?: First, your place of employment should have a standard needlestick protocol. Any place that provides healthcare and utilizes needles should have a guideline or procedure for event response.

You should be safe with that regard. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi i am 24 and a herpes patient i have had a few outbreaks but never this bad i work 8-10 hr shifts how can I hel while being on foot all day?
Stick with legit Rx.: Imulux is a light treatment, which lectroject is a scary-looking electrical contraption. I know of no credible evidence that either one works. Stick with with fda-approved drugs like valacyclovir and famciclovir, both of which kill the herpes virus and control the disease in most cases. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
