My sympathies. I'm a "carrier" of those things, meaning I've never shown symptoms, even though I have been very well exposed to them. I took care of my brother when he had chicken pox, and my kids too - then my husband when he had Shingles.
I know that L-lysine in high doses (up to 9,000 mgs a day) can be safely used for 6 months - but that's when the study ended, so there were no further documentations on what might happen if it was used longer. Whenever I have a flare up of my herpes viruses, I just jump back on the lysine and it brings it under control, so I keep a bottle of it around all the time.
Interesting side note on this - I tried taking L-arginine and my EBV flared horribly, so now I avoid it as much as I can.
