Genital Herpes and immunosuppressive conditions

Posted by @distressed in Infectious Diseases, Jul 10, 2011

I had a kidney transplant about one year ago. I was recently diagnosed with genital herpes and wondering if it could cause my kidney to reject. The gynecologist said no, but I'm not sure how knowledge she is with this topic.

Make sure it is your kidney doctor that writes you the script, so they can follow up with you. Drink plenty of water because when taking acyclovir you need to drink a crapload of water. I have had to have several rounds of treatments and it has never caused a problem for me. Good luck, and let me know if you have any other questions
