Do Not Break Herpes Sores!

Dear Dr. Tom:

I have contract herpes from my wife. We
were married about two years ago and have not had a problem. She has
cold sores about 4 times a year. We tried oral sex and guess what?
Yep, I got it now. They have appeared in two places, on the shaft and
at the base of it. The problem is that it will go away for about 3
days to a week and then be back for a week. This has been going on
for about two months now. Going to a doctor is OUT. I live in a small
town and everyone would know. I tend to break them open and then put
anti-bacterial cream on them. I have become so depressed that I am
worried about our marriage. My wife tells me she has no burning or
itching in the genital area. Mine always stays in the same place. She
wants to have sex alot but using a condom for me is like nothing at
all. No feeling. I am in my 50’s and my wife is in her 30’s. We love
each other dearly but I am about at the end of my rope. Is there something
I can do to help without taking drugs. We have no insurance, so it
is hard for us. Does L-Lysine work? I have read on some sites that
it seems to help the virus stay dormant….PLEASE can you help us?

Dr. Tom’s Response:

Dear Poster Who Has Contracted Genital

Seemingly, you wish to find something without ?drugs?;
I mean that you pertain to the prescribed drugs necessary from a physician.
A good bit of information is available from the Internet about L-lysine.
Also, your public library may have several volumes that deal with herbal
medicines, including lysine. Many people with herpes have taken lysine
and other herbal remedies with much relief. You can purchase these
products on the Internet safely, using a secure server, or you might
drive to a larger city where malls may include a shop selling natural
vitamins and herbs, etc. These clerks have been quite informative,
and herpes is an actively requested armamentarium. Sometimes a friendly
pharmacist may also offer alternative compounds.

Do not break the vesicles. The fluid contained
within is infectious.

Please refer to Dr. Amy for further suggestions
to enhance your sexual experiences. I hope you will seek relief from
your extreme discomfort.
