Common Questions and Answers about Valtrex dosage for fever blisters

valtrex

I'm trying to find out if there is a fundamental element to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>valtrex</span> that I don't know. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> example. within so many days/hours after taking it, the virus will likely be pressed back onto the nerve and remaining sores will behave as normal cuts etc. If these are blisters, I just want to know if I'm still contagious. I'm sorry for my lack of clarity. Thanks!
The doctors have said that she is too young to take valtrex, but it seems to me that the risks couldn't be worse than pumping her body full of acyclovir every day. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fever</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blister</span>s seem to rule her life. She gets about 12-13 hours of sleep at night and has a 20-30 min rest time at school, but I don't think that she ever falls asleep. She could definitely use more sleep.
I tracked my IBS symptoms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a year and a half and found that it was linked to my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fever</span> blisters on my lip that would break out each month I started my period. I also found a GI surgeon that wrote a paper stating that he too found a link between HS1 and IBS and that patients that took valtrex for the HS1 had a significant decrease in nausea, bloating, constipation, and diarreha. I knew that each time this blister on my lip popped out I would have all those symptoms.
There are several of us on here who have a similar eye complaint: seeing a bright flash, like the afterimage of a flash bulb, when we blink, and sometimes, on upgaze. This is transient symptom for most of us, lasting anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. When the "spot" in our visual field passes over a dark background, the spot appears light. When the spot passes over a light background, it appears dark.
Changed valtrex to more of an outbreak dosage. 1 mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 2/day yesterday and the same <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> today. Do you know if too much valtrex or Lysine can cause any of these symptoms I'm feeling? Do antibiotics cause valtrex to be ineffective? Can you get herpes on your ear and/or head? On the bottom of my right ear at the part where my ear joins my head I'll get an occasional hard bump like it swells. Popped it and it formed a flaky scab. Do symptoms cause back and neck to feels like they are burning?
I say this because I have been having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fever</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blister</span>s in my mouth <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a very long time and without explanation. My I remember being checked by the dermatologists and a specialist with b swabbing a sore/blister a couple of years ago and they told me that there was no sign of the virus...(which is odd) though when I got checked for allergies, the virus was apparent. Now...
The normal dose for treating recurrent genital herpes is 500 mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>valtrex</span> twice per day <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> three days or you can do 2 grams of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>valtrex</span> twice a day <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a day or two. I don't feel you are having outbreaks all over your body, but a provider that you would see in person could best assess that. If you only have genital herpes, you will not spread this orally. Did you give oral sex to this person as well? Garlic and lysine will not help you, I would pass on these.
5)Primary Dr also gave valtrex just in case my tingeling did not disappear by 1 week after the encounter. It did not, so I took <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>valtrex</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 10 days 2 pills a day (forget the dosage, but it was what you mention many times here) 6)That didn't help much either, and I also began to feel a slight burning in my urethra (maybe from over inspection inside my penis), but I never had ANY burning while urinating.
, sunburn, local surgery) and other illnesses, hence the names <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fever</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blister</span>s and cold sores. No triggers have ever been proved <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> genital herpes due to HSV-2. To my knowledge there are no good data either way for genital HSV-1, however.
Thank God I had a follow up with a dermatologist. She prescribed valtrex, which is very expensive and did not help me at all. A physician I recently saw prescribed Famciclovir, which is much less expensive and works much better. Knowing that I would have to take this for the rest of my life, I was worried that it would be dangerous with long term used and searched for something other than medication. On the Web, I discovered L-Lysine.
I TOO HAVE THIS PROBLEM IT STARTED AROUND MY BELLY BUTTON AND NOW ITS ON MY LEFT ARM MY DAD ALSO FELT THIS ALONG TIME AGO WHEN HE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH BRUCELLOSIS BUT HIS DISCOMforT WAS ACOMPANIED WITH <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fever</span> SOMETHING I HAVENT HAD MY WIFE AND I WERE BOTH TESTED <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> THIS IN MEXICO AND TESTED POSITIVE <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> SMALL AMOUNTS OF BRUCELLOSIS.
On initial infection severly itchy sore and swollen outer vagina lips (vulva?) won't be herpes if no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blister</span>s appear on it. 3. On initial infection a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fever</span> and chills/sweats come only after lesions appear and does not happen before lesions are present. 4. Can do a swab culture on a blister but best to have a pcr swab on an area that is raw/blistered/cut. Have a got all this right? Don't want to go in to my doc with wrong info? One last clarification thanks if poss.
My dental hygenist suggested taking lysine(?). It's a vitamin suppliment <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> better general mouth health. This works very well <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> me, I used to get alot of mouth sores anyway, and after taking lysine for a day or two the sores clear up.
This eventually crusted over and healed up, but the blister was very painful. I went to an emergency treatment center who took a swab sample from the blister and sent away <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> STD tests. The results were all negative for STDs. I had a burning sensation at the tip of my penis the night before the lesion appeared, but no fever or other discomfort. I was prescribed a 7 day course of amoxicillin.
At this time he perscribed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>valtrex</span> at high dose (1G three times a day <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 14 days). This worked and things stayed clear <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a couple of months. During this time I researched VZV a great deal. I became concerned that there might be some underlying problem that was causing this. After a couple of months, increased stress started to cause problems again.
Did the bumps look like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blister</span>s of boils? Well it's good that your dr did a Swab test, altho the thing that sux is that if you dint get it swabbed early enough you might get a false negative. Did you get a herpes blood test anyway? Just to see that you were atleast negative before the encounter. I have heard that some people cld be positive witg out symptoms, and then years later get symptoms.
hey man. no i dont have a name <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> it, but all you really need to know is that it is a bacterial infection. therefore, try to create inhospitable conditions for the bacteria. keep it dry (within comfort level). maybe dab it with a little alcohol. surely there must be a name, but i'd just chalk it up to a bacterial rash... all i know is it didnt last very long...
I went to the doctor today and was tested <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> Herpes and given a prescription <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>valtrex</span> (which I can't afford). She said she thought there was a 40% chance it was herpes (my boyfriend gets mouth cold sores, but neither of us has any other history of HSV) and a 60% chance it was "just tears" and said I should just make sure I use KY, which I already do. Also, I'm supposed to be on my period this week, but I haven't really been having them since I started ortho-novum.
Still have some unanswered questions, but if that's what it is and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>valtrex</span> will keep it at bay, then all is good. I'm not sure what the rates are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> false positives when using the Herpes Select Blood Test. I just know that if you are positive for one and your results for two are between 1.1 and under 3.
I'll have to get tested again just to be sure). The spot has been tested twice <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> herpes and is not herpes. I was on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>valtrex</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> at least a year and it was still there. I have a reoccuring "paper cut" in the same spot and it seems to be there more than not! I've had this problem for at least 3 years or so. I work out on a regular.....and it's not sex related for me because even when I wasn't having sex for a long time it seemed to still be there.
No fever here, KG. But vasculitis is supposedly an immune response, so a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fever</span> doesn't surprise me. I go in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> my post-testing consult with the doctor on Tuesday. They did a pelvic unltrasound, leg ultrasound and checked out my aorta and iliac arteries looking for anything that might cause the unexplained swelling I've had in legs on two occasions in the past year. I'll try to remember to ask about the fever.
I went to see my doctor and he told me I had shingles. Which explains the red spots and the lump. He put me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>valtrex</span> (sp?) and I've been taking it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> the past 4 days. I noticed the overall itch has gotten much much worse and still have no clue why it's so bad!!
I told him about the numberous posts I had read online about women who had experienced joint pain soon after getting the Mirena. He did several tests to see if he could find a cause <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fever</span> ( UTI, vaginal infection etc,,,) but they all came back negative. He said I could have a virus, but there were no other indicators for that such as a cough, chest congestion etc... so after consulting with the oncall ob/gyn he removed the Mirena.
My husband has been having skin rashes around his eyes, raised small red bumps, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> several months and just won
I have had the internal shakes on and off <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> years, sometimes daily <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a month at a time. I also get visible shake but only slight and only once where other people could see it going on. I don't know if my shakes are due to meds or just part of the disease. So many effects of the disease and so little knowledge about it. I hope someone can advise you a little better, I feel for you, 24/7 must be wearing for you. All the best.
My arms, and only my arms, have itched <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 10 years. no rashes, no psiorias, excema etc. The creams, allergery pills..my list is extensive as to what I have tried but nothing worked. ---------------The only thing that helps are ice packs. ----------------------- Recently,I had an x-ray to check if I had any nerve impingement in my cervical spine - one of the possible causes but nothing showed so I continue to search for answers.
here i go....so <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> the last 6 months i have had itchy eyelids...my eye doctor told me it was due to mild allergies and prescribed eye drops which didnt help in the least so i turned to over the counter allergy medicine which hasn't helped either (so i dont think it's allergies) and in the last 3 weeks not only are my eyelids itchy but when i wake up in the morning my upper eye lids are bright red and swelled up so bad that its embarassing!!!!
I found a person on the MSN body odor support forum who had a bad odor <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a long time and then the odor went away after being treated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> H. Pylori, but then the coughing and sneezing started after that. Interesting. Another person on the MSN board said he was also treated for H. Pylori and then the coughing/sneezing started! Question: Do any of you burp a lot? Here is a thread that should be read: http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=561071#i Read the replies to that link also.
