I have hsv-1 and have VERY uncomfortable sensations at my inguinal reg

Customer Question

I have hsv-1 and have VERY uncomfortable sensations at my inguinal region. Intense heat that is also at my testicles... It is alarmingly hot and I'm scared.
I've read that there's the Lupidon H vaccine in Italy for HSV-1 that may be ordered by a physician here in the states. Is that possible?

Once you have the virus it is too late for a vaccine.
I'm sorry
Are you on valtrex or another suppressive medication?
Expert:  DocPhilMD replied 1 year ago.
what meds do you take?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I don't take any Rx meds. I've been on an herbal formula from my Oriental medicine practitioner and I take St.John's Wort. As the last 4 days, since I've been taking St. John's Wort, I haven't had any symptoms.

why are you not on an anti viral agent?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I fear that the damage of the antiviral is worse than having hsv.
Expert:  DocPhilMD replied 1 year ago.
I disagree with that. the anti viral is needed
