Question and answer
How can i stop the outbreak of herpes before it gets worst?
1. Visit your doctor in order to confirm the diagnosis of herpes; symptoms include a red rash over which appear blisters as well as a painful, burning or tingling feeling in the area before the rash appears. [ Your doctor can most easily diagnose the condition during an outbreak, but, according to the Mayo Clinic, blood testing can be used to check for the presence of HSV. If your doctor diagnoses you with genital herpes, she will likely prescribe you an antiviral medication like acyclovir, valacyclovir or famciclovir which you can have on hand when an outbreak occurs. 2 Take antiviral
medications as prescribed by your doctor. It is important, in order for the medications to have their greatest impact on limiting the effects of an outbreak, to begin the medication as soon as you recognize the symptoms of an outbreak. 3. Use in-home care to help speed the healing of your herpes outbreak. GlaxoSmithKline, which makes the antiviral medication Valtrex, recommends steps like keeping sores clean and dry and wearing loose undergarments in order to avoid irritating the sores. 4 Manage the pain of herpes outbreaks with over-the-counter pain relievers, following manufacturer's instructions and your doctor's advice. Ice packs may also provide relief, according to GSK. Read more: How to Deal With a Herpes Outbreak | eHow.com ]
