I have had genital herpes for 23 years (not sure what type - waiting for the swab to come back). I have only had my second outbreak now but it is causing all sort of other symptoms other than a sore. Genital burning, itching, feels like I'm sitting on glass, terrible discharge. Was tested for all other STIs and I'm negative. What is this? Its been going on for weeks now.
I was prescribed Valtrex 250mg 3 times per day and it helped with the actual sore but the other symptoms are still moderate to severe. I have read that some people have post herpetic neuralgia with HSV 2. How long does it last?
