I Assume I have Herpes 1 Genitally

Dear Dr. Tom:

I just had my first outbreak of genital herpes. I am a lesbian in a 15 year monogamous relationship with a partner who has oral herpes, so it is likely, I assume that I have Herpes 1. To what extent should I begin to do preventative things such as change my diet and take nutritional supplements? My doctor said to wait and see, as I may not have other recurrences, but I’m not sure if this is good advice. On the other hand, I don’t want to give up foods I like and take expensive supplements if it’s not necessary. Thanks very much for your advice.
Sincerely, Ellen

Dr. Tom’s Response:

Dear Ellen:

HSV1 infections tend to be less frequent, less painful and to have fewer painful recurrences than HSV2. Your doctor has probably given you sound advice about waiting to see. If your doctor did not recommend a specific controlled diet why not give his counsel a chance to become reality? You might be wise to discuss further the dietary part of your life with him on another visit.
