Thread: Herpes Simplex large sore on buttock

    It might not be the pre-gabalin, but rather the result of stopping the drug. Any stresser on the body can cause an outbreak anywhere. Once you have the virus, you have it. It can lie dormant for years or you can have outbreak after outbreak. I would not sit until it is totally cleared up. No FES bike - nothing. It shouldn't take too long now that you are on the oral medication.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad (or not great) news!

    Sorry I should have been clearer the sores did start after I weaned off the pre-gabalin. Even with me up from 10am-7pm they are improving steadily, the new one seems to have exploded and is getting a little less red, older one definitely healing. They are slightly to the side of my buttocks so no real pressure on them and I am sleeping on the other side to give them every chance to heal.

    The biggest concern is another one appearing on a pressure area but GP understands my fear and will prescribe long term medication. I don't want to go back to pre-gabalin if I can avoid it.
