  • You should not let anyone there or have sex during an outbreak. I heard Valtrex keeps in under control.

  • My MIL takes Valtrex and that keeps her herpes under control. She has had it for a few years and she hasn't had an outbreak in 18 months she takes Valtrex daily.

  • Why don't you ask your Doctor about this stuff? We aren't professionals. And I think it IS TMI and in bad taste. Sorry, it just is .
