unless she has a medical reason not to, she can alternate tylenol with advil - ie 1000mg tylenol
at 6 a.m, 600mg advil at 9 a.m., tylenol
at noon, advil at 3pm etc. It gives better pain control than just taking one or the other.
Hsv1 genitally tends to not reoccur as often and it doesn't shed as much. Even though right now this first ob won't heal soon enough to make her comfortable quickly, recurrences will be most likely few and far between and not near as bad.
