my private part
Dec 27, 2010

Response from Mr. Vergel

It could be herpes. If it is, ask your doctor for a prescription for Acyclovir, Famvir, or Valtrex. Take it forever if you can as a prophylaxis with your HIV medications.

It could also be syphilis, but I am assuming that you got tested for sexually transmitted diseases and you do not have it. They would not had given you an ointment if it had been syphilis.


with food or not?
