yes that pain. and the burning swelling hot pain you get when you pee.
dont bother with supressive treatment. your body will learn to fight it on its own.
medications for comfort only cover up symptoms without letting your body naturally find its way to fight it. plus it taxes all the other organs that you need for health.
its a lot more mild in guys than girls too. i treated my first outbreak. and that was the only one. i felt like you do though. i was given it. thats why i think that maybe because your outbreaks is so severe that she gave it to you.
since your fever is gone you will notice you will start healing pretty quickly now.
hope you are well soon.
