Symptoms and Management
When herpes surfaces, symptoms can include blisters, tingling, burning, itching, and pain. These episodes are undoubtedly uncomfortable, but the sores typically heal on their own. Early intervention with antiviral medicines, such as acyclovir and valacyclovir, can alleviate these symptoms and potentially reduce the duration of an outbreak. For best results, it’s advised to start these medications as symptoms first emerge, even during the preliminary phase before lesions appear.
Luckily, Phenix Health is available 24/7, and you don’t have to worry about long wait times or leaving home. When symptoms arise, you can get the help you need fast.
Boosting your immune system through diet can help in managing herpes. Incorporate foods rich in antioxidants like cauliflower, spinach, and kale. Additionally, foods containing omega-3 fatty acids such as salmon and flax seeds can help suppress inflammation.
Safe Intimacy and Precautions
Though having herpes requires some adaptations in intimacy, fulfilling relationships are entirely achievable. Key precautions include using protection like condoms, and open communication with partners about the condition. For expecting mothers, it’s crucial to be aware that there’s a minimal risk of transmitting herpes during childbirth.
