  1. Hi, After getting tested for hsv2, my results were “indeterminate” and I was negative for all other diseases. I had protected sex ~20 days ago. Just a few days ago, these bumps appeared on my chin and over the course of 2 days have disappeared. Are these herpes? thank you in advance

    Not sure if rectal herpes

    Hey everyone, Hopefully someone can give me advice. I’m a gay bottom (receptive) and hooked up on the 22nd of February (currently the 5th of March.) during sex, no condom was used, and the guy swore that he got tested regularly, and never had any STI’s. Thursday night (March 1st) I started noticing some pain when I was walking, around my rectal area. The area was really moist, and I had started going to the gym a lot that previous week and doing a lot of stair-stepper workouts, so I thought it was chafing or a rash associated with that. But the more I looked at pictures of rashes, I’m convinced it’s herpes.. I had the Chickenpox when I was a little kid, I’m not sure if that’s relevant. But I’ve been walking around with toilet paper wedges between my butt cheeks because that’s the only thing that helps reduce pain and keeps the area dry, which I read is what you’re supposed to do. The one picture is after the shower, and the other is after a day at work with no toilet paper, so you can see how much discharge is present. Please help!
  3. Trying a poll to see if any corollaries exist and if any difference by type.
  4. PLEASE READ!! NEED ADVICE!!! I think I have herpes but the doctor says I have nothing to worry about!! I dated a guy for 2 years, we broke up and he had sex with a girl, who had sex with a guy, who has sex with a girl that 100% has herpes. Although I'm not sure, I believe the virus had been transmitted to all of the people involved. After my ex had sex with the girl who potentially has herpes, I slept with him (this may have been close to a month after they had sex). When I had sex with him after he slept with her, it was unprotected and I had noticed a small sore on his penis that was bleeding after we had sex. He insisted it was nothing to worry about that he thought it was a pimple... He had also lied to me (which I found out later) and said he got tested after her and that his results came back clean so i thought I had nothing to worry about. A couple months passed and I had no symptoms and I even got checked for herpes and my blood test came back negative for both types of herpes. I was so relieved. I assumed he was clean so a couple months after my test I had sex with him again, this time we used a condom. 4 days after we had sex (with the condom) I noticed an intense burning sensation and a tear on my labia above my clitoris (clitoris hood). The sore itself wasn't painful to touch but the burning sensation continued. I have been emotionally exhausted having anxiety over if I have it or if I don't, eventually I went to my gyno and they did a full exam and a culture on a swab from the sore above my clitoris, all the results came back NEGATIVE! I thought I'd be relieved but the doctor couldn't give any explanation for the burning that was always there... Still paranoid, I was trying to find the source to my pain and took a flash video of my vagina trying to see if there's anything that they could've missed. After watching the video I noticed a red patch with fluid filled "bubbles"/pimple looking-blisters right before my vagina hole that hurt to the touch. The doctor is making me feel like I'm crazy- she's telling me I don't need to come back in. But part of me feels like she didn't take a deep enough look and that the sore she did swab-had nothing to do with my outbreak. I'm so suicidal and my self esteem is at an ALL TIME LOW, I just want to know if I didn't get herpes the first time we had unprotected sex is a good indicator that he's clean or if I still have a good chance of having it even after all the tests and the use of a condom? I physically feel sick from my anxiety and I simply can't focus on anything else but the possibility of me having herpes. I don't know what to do or what to think. Please help me, I don't know how much longer I can deal with the pain.
  5. Hi, ive posted here before about this strange spaced out rash that I have on my groin. It’s now been about 16 days since I first noticed one red spot. Then a few days later I noticed this blistery/pimple thing that popped up nearby and for two weeks they just kept popping up individually. On my last post I had comments from people saying it most likely looked like something bacterial. I’ve been trying to do some research on outbreaks with no prodrome but I can’t find anything! I had no tingling, burning, itching sensations in that area before I noticed the first spot. I literally just noticed it and was like what the hell is that? also, can Herpes be that spaced out? From what I’ve learnt is that the lesions appear all bunched up together. I’ve also heard that initial outbreaks hurt A LOT. however these spots haven’t been very sore at all. But my main question is can you have no prodrome symptoms?
  6. Hi, about two and a half weeks ago I had sex (protected) with a woman I slept with about a month and a half ago. This was on Saturday (14 oct). Fast forward to Thursday 17 oct I was on the toilet and noticed kind of a red circular mark with a crust around it (not on it) on my inner thigh in the groin area. I thought nothing of it as I sweat a lot and usually get itchy rashes around my Groin. Fast forward a few more days I noticed a large pimple that looked more like a blister a couple of cm from the original suspected sore. Up until now I have had these pimple/blistery things popping up for the last two weeks in this Groin area whilst others have been healing. Some are a little itchy but some are not. I’ve had no flu like symptoms and I didn’t have any tingling or itching of the area before I noticed the first spot or anything like that. I noticed redness/ spots on the tip of my penis the other day also and thought what I’m having is 100% Herpes however the penis spots have subsided after about two days so I’m wondering if I’m having some sort of fungal/balanitis outbreak or jock itch or if it is actually Herpes. I’m terrified. Can Herpes blisters pop up gradually over the weeks? I thought Herpes lesions kind of come at you at once and heal all together. I consulted the girl whom I slept with and she said she hasn’t had any symptoms but went to get checked right away so I’m waiting for her to get back to me with her results before I really start worrying. But yes I’m terrified, I’m only 21 and not too keen on having Genital Herpes. I’ve attached a bit of an unflattering photo to give you an idea of what I’m dealing with. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

    Slide over, I need to sit down

    Hello everyone, I was recently diagnosed with ocular herpes. If you have it I feel your pain, if you don't I pray you never do. While I haven't experienced vision loss yet I know this is a possibility and devastating emotionally. I have kids, I can't go blind. I refuse to accept this disease and will fight it daily. I had many emotions as I endured the pain and light sensitivity but we must keep in mind that our diet is our greatest tool to defend against this virus. Currently I am on Acyclovir and healing from swelling and very tender eyes with a maint regiment prescribed. I must say that this has been an emotional time but reading through the forums I have gained hope and encouragement.

    Herpetic Whitlow?

    Hey all! Newbie here. I've yet to see a derma about this (smart huh?), but upon doing EXTENSIVE research, I've come to the conclusion that what I've been suffering from as a young child (9-10 y/o) is Herpetic Whitlow. Readings claim that people most prone to whitlow are dental assistants and children. Basically, every month or few months, I get a blister-LIKE bump on the sides of my fingers, or the pads of my fingers, or around my nail beds. Starts off as a painful bump, which then forms a small white almost center to it, under the skin. At this point of the outbreak, if I squeeze them, they just freakin hurt and clear liquid comes out (minuscule amount). Then they become bulbous, red, irritated, AND ITCHY and painful at the same time. Normally when they come around it ends up on both hands. Now, a new event, are wicked sores that pop up in between my toes/around nail bed, with the same characteristics of my fingers/hands only worse because I must wear sneakers and socks to work, standing and moving for long hours. I've had long term relationships my entire life, and have obviously held their hands a ton of times (during an outbreak), and no one has ever contracted what I seem to have. Photos of my toes (most recent outbreak) were deleted accidentally. Most of what I find on Google images are extreme and only resemble my problem 6/10 of the time. Can anyone shed light on this for me? THANK YOU!
