Friends, Its been almost more than 25 days since my sympt


Its been almost more than 25 days since my symptoms started like itching, tingling and all stuff...just yesterday night, I had a night out with friends and I had a few drinks,,,,today morning suddenly I feel like a radiation passing through my muscle towards one particular point or place, where the radiation travels and then hits that place,,,it is very painful or nagging,,,, has anyone experienced this kind of things happening to you....does something happen to a person with herpes if you consume alcohol..... or is this just part of my first breakout,,,,,and will the breakout be there for so long like 25 days or more.....

I am just worried,,,,should I just start taking antiviral medications ......I am concerned about the fact that, whether I have to be on antivirals everyday for the rest of my life or just when breakouts occur,,,

Please help me out with this situation.............

Well, you have to remember it's a virus and can cause all kinds of feeling bad. You should take the antivirals and get it under control.....may help minimize future OB's, etc. You shouldn't have to take antivirals after your OB.
