Struggling with my first outbreak. I found out today it is herpes and I have been so sick and in so much pain for almost a week now. Any tips to feel better? I'm currently on amoxicillin and aclyvoir(spelling?) just started these today. I have horrible swollen mouth and can't even eat. Not to mention my vagina hurts and has horrible discharge. I never thought I would have this but guess I have to deal with it now. I just need help to get past this outbreak and any suggestions I feel so defeated and down.

I'm really sorry that you are in this situation the only thing I can suggest is keep taking pain medication and even if you gargle with some Betadine antiseptic or something.

It is possible to pass the oral strain on by skin to skin contact while you are having an outbreak and while you are going through something called "viral shedding". So I would refrain from kissing him or putting your face to his face. At the very least while you're having an outbreak. You shouldn't have to worry about the genital part, as long as you have no skin to skin contact in the boxer shorts area. I am not a mother and can't directly feel your concern. Perhaps other mamas will comment.

I think its ensure you dont kiss him on the lips. Its likely that he will contract it at some point in time from someone other than you.
