Recurrent intraoral herpes (gums)

I've been having HSV1 outbreaks in my gums (all over them) every single month, sometimes more than once, for over 5 years now..
I have been to general doctors, dentists, viral doctors, dermatologists and nobody has ever seen herpes on the gums so it always feels like I know more about the subject than the doctors themselves..
So I've already tried all sorts of approach: valacyclovir daily, L-lysine 500 daily, shots of iron (as i have iron deficiency and some doctors thought this could strengthen the virus..), ...
I honestly don't know what else to do.
Anyone fighting the same problem?
