I've read that megevitamin use can trigger outbreaks.Do you know whether getting cortisone injections in the spine can also do this?

yes steroid injections do sometimes trigger recurrences in folks. if you are on suppressive therapy, up your dose to the ob dose when you get the infection. If you aren't on suppressive therapy, consider a round of episodic therapy when you get the injection to help ward one off.
