Currently in an OB I just had a minor one about 3 weeks ago now again! I've been so stressed lately. I'll be seeing the dr later today and I have to do other things to prevent or help OBs. Does anyone have anything else I can do besides just taking acyclovir everytime I OB?
usually, the beginning of the diagnosis is the worst. you will have more frequent OBs and frequent shedding.
some people take acyclovir or Valtrex daily (suppressive therapy); I don't know if that's something you'd like to consider.
others take supplements to help build the immune system.
you also have to keep yourself healthy.
avoid overuse of alcohol. avoid ALL stress as much as possible. avoiding certain foods and drinks.
exercise, meditate, yoga.
Everyone's body is different, so you have to do a little bit of trial and error to see what works for you.
Talk to your doctor about other options...like supplements to take.
and @dark_phoenix has a great list of natural supplements and links to help with OBs.
