Has anyone with cancer felt that you had more outbreaks while on IV chemo or oral chemo? How about after being cancer free? Diagnosed with HSV2 in 2014 with only a few outbreaks until having cancer/chemo 2016-2018. My oral chemo will last another 4 years.

Now it’s constant outbreaks BTW: I’m a surviv

Chemo pretty much destroys your immune system so I wouldnt be surprised by the increase

Two time survivor, yes your immune system is compromised by the chemo, I guess I was fortunate with no outbreaks but diagnosed is 2005, cancer in 2009 and again 2016, stress plays a big role as well.
