OK so I went for the last 1/2 of my gum cleaning and I broke out with bumps again in my mouth, which I think is Herpes Simplex. This is the second time this has happened after dental work. So I have a question, clearly my immune system is suppressed/messed up. Should I be trying to make it better even though I am taking meds to suppress it, so that I don't get these things, or just let my immune system stay basically like this for my crohns? I was given a valtrex and the bumps are getting better already, but if there are other things I can do so this does not keep happening, if anyone has any suggestions, bring it on! I am just really confused as to whether or not I should be trying to get a better immune system seeing that it's being messed up with my meds on purpose. Has anyone experienced this type of stuff and what do you do?
