Hi! I've had ocular herpes for 6 years now. I haven't had any other kind of herpes, so I can't speak to that. YES, it's a difficult thing to consider that blindness is a possibility, but remember it's a LOW possibility. It's much more likely that if you stay on top of it and promptly seek medical care when you need it, the chances are much more likely that you will keep your sight for your lifetime. I've had some vision loss, but have not had a relapse for about 5 years now. I found through trial and error that my success is due to strict adherence to my regimen of prescription drugs, avoiding foods with arginine, and staying out of the sun as much as possible. Too much sun exposure ANYWHERE on my body will trigger a relapse within 24 hours for me. I found this out the hard way, of course. For comfort's sake, I wear sunglasses a lot, and use artificial tears to help combat the dryness in my eyes. I will soon be ordering glasses with a tint to be worn indoor, as sometimes the glare is too much for me, even while inside. I have missed out on a lot of activities with my family and friends, due to the potential of sun exposure. This has been difficult emotionally, but I try to remember that my health and sight are precious and must be prioritized. I may have to miss my daughter's high school graduation due to the fact that it will be outdoor, but I can't let pride get in the way of my health. I wish you great success in treating and dealing with this difficulty.
Hello everyone. I'm new to this whole virus. I'm scared to death. I had herpes around my anus. Went to the hospital cause I was in so much pain. All I had to put on it was triple antibiotic ointment. It helped a little but not much. I don't want my partner to catch it, and I don't want him to leave cause I have it. The blisters or what ever are healed and it don't hurt down there any more.
Is it safe to have unprotected sex, we both think that I got it from my ex boyfriend. I first came down with it about three weeks ago. Two weeks later after using Acyclovir it healed good. I don't want to lose him. Sex is not the same with a condom but I understand he is scared.
Please let me know. Thank you all.
