This is Dr. David

herpes manifest when a patients immune system is down

everyone's immune system is different and no set of vitamins will guarantee that genital herpes will manifest.

he needs to see a doctor and get antiviral therapy such as valcyclovir or acyclovir to help suppress his herpes.

he needs a full physical and blood test to see what may be affecting his immune system.

he may not be sleeping enough at night time. he needs blood testing to check his thyroid hormone levels which can affect his sleep which can thus affect his immune system.

is he willing to see a doctor to get a full physical and evaluation of his herpes?

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
