  1. It was on the 12th of August, 2015 when I realized or had my first out break. Few days before that day (August 12th), I went to a friends birthday party, I had so much alcohol, I was happy then I met this girl, she was kinda alone and me! Feeling like a superstar wanted to cheer her up. So we talked and I gave her some alcohol, she was so much excited and we danced, hugged and even cuddled while dancing. Then she told me she was tired she needed to seat she asked if we could take a walk away from the party. Whom am I to say no, after all she is very pretty and sexy, I took her

    Daily Antivirals Aren't Working

    Hello there. I'm a 24F, who has had HSV 1 for 3 and a half years now. I got my first cold sore December of 2016 out of no where when I was 21. I was in school and working at a job that had me very stressed at all time. I came home one day and saw the bumps. Initially, I'd never thought anything of it as my dad always had them when I was growing up. Of course, you go on Google and after about 20 minutes of searching, you are absolutely devastated and disgusted with yourself. The first year after my 1st outbreak, I'd occasionally experience some shedding, but didn't get another breakout un

    Lemon - good or bad for cold sores?

    Are lemons good or bad for cold sores? I love my water with some juice from fresh lemons but recently came across an article on livestrong.com that actually says lemons are bad for cold sores? Anyone have any feedback on this?
  4. Hi all, Last night @SupermansJustice stood up and fought for all of us, I thought you all should see this chain of tweets (pictures attached - you can also go on Twitter to view the full thread). This is the reason we need more people standing up and helping us fight. A specialist of infectious diseases spoke out against the tweets being posted about routine testing. I will say that again - a specialist of infectious diseases said that there is no need for routine testing. At one point even asking how you would test people who don't show symptoms. @SupermansJustice went into a debate wi
  5. Does anyone have any advice about applying makeup and removing makeup if you have oral herpes? I'm finding it very difficult to not be wasteful with things like face powder, makeup brushes, tooth brushes and toothpastes, acne medications and moisturizers, and other items like that. I have a terrible fear of possibly spreading something all over my face, so any advice is appreciated. Thank you
  6. Is this it

    What is it

    Hey everyone I had dry lips which then turned to a black spot you could say pic attached. It was there for a few days painless but was quite hard. I put some oregano herbs on it as it was getting darker and peeling hard skin and it started to react and get watery I guess you could say. It now looks like this 2 days after applying the herb! The pharmacy said it’s not a cold sore and just reacted to what I put on it On top of a blocked gland or something any ideas?? Please
  7. Looks like there is now a site that's in English selling Amenalief (amenamevir) for the rock bottom price of about $95.43 USD a day. ($668 shipped for 14 x 200mg pills at 400mg/ daily dose). Amenalief is one of the helicase primase-inhibitor class of drugs that has been around for the better part of a couple decades, but has just recently made it to market in Japan. Pritelivir is also a member of this drug class. For those that have less than stellar results from current antivirals, helicase primase-inhibitors are likely to offer a relatively impressive improvement in quality of life assuming
  8. I had sex with a girl and then I started over thinking it. I think it might have been due to irritation but I don’t know. I’m stressing does this look like herpes?

    Advice for GHSV-1

    So I made it to month four without a visible sign of an outbreak. I had a really bad outbreak in the ending of April and was diagnosed with GHSV1. My initial outbreak took about a month to heal and left scars (a lighter pigmentation from my overall complexion on my genitals). Sadly I have been ridiculously paranoid to the point I have taken two 7 day treatments of Valtrex. More than likely it was probably just yeast infections (I get them way more than I should, even before getting hsv). I also take lysine twice a day and three times a day when I feel like an outbreak is coming on. I’ve been a

  13. I haven't had any cold sores or herpes looking blister appear on my mouth. However, Ive been getting better a lot of pimples due to the heat and sweat while I sleep (hot country). the other day I was sitting down and relaxing when I suddenly felt a strong tingling feeling over the left corner on my lip. It wasn't on the lil but in the space over it. The feeling lasted maybe thirty minutes or longer but in that span of time that area went from clear to a singular, pimple. The next day it was a white head with a dark center. It was not in a cluster, but another singular pimple appeared ove

    hsv1 coldsore symptoms

    I have a question to people who suffer from cold sores from hsv1.does anyone experience headaches, ear problems, eye problems, flu like symptoms, coughing, sneezing or neuralgia.
  15. Hi there friends My name is Katie and I have been brutally embarrassed and bullied by the cold sores I get since kindergarten. I used to get them every time the seasons changed like clockwork and they would continue to affect me into my adulthood, restricting me from wanting to go to school/work/out with friends/etc. To help empower me, I made this video parodying "7 Rings" by Ariana Grande to embody embracing your true amazingness despite your cold sore. It includes the tips that I have learned over my 23 years to zap the sore before they get worse and my roommate/bestie designed and cre

    Two outbreaks

    Recently had my first big outbreak (I had a scare of what I thought could have been one last month but even though I got swabbed asap tested it came back negative). After about a week into the outbreak on my genitals I then had an oral outbreak (never had a cold sore before at least to my awareness). While I am on antivirals (taken the day the cold sore showed and the genitals have started clearing this oral one just seems to be getting worse. The nurse said it was likely HSV-2 but I am still waiting for my results. Does anyone have any recommendations on how to cope with this oral outbreak? I

    HSV 1 positive

    I was just diagnosed with HSV 1 and this was the first time I had been tested for it. I am not sure how long I’ve had it and now I’m feeling a lot of stress and anxiety. A lot of my friends have had cold sores before and I know they’re super common but I am so afraid of passing it to someone else with an unknown outbreak. I know that HSV 1 can be oral or genital but is most commonly oral. I don’t think I’ve had an outbreak yet because I figured it would be easy to recall. I’ve had a small fluid filled bump above my lip for a month or so that at one point I picked off and it grew back. It hasn’
  18. Hi everyone! Earlier this week I saw my doctor as I was experiencing some discomfort in my genital area... long story short I had unprotected sex, my doctor or did a physical examination and believed it is herpes. I received a call today advising that my blood came back negative for all STD’s and the sexual contact was made over 10 days ago. Rash is sores are still fresh. From what I’ve read false negatives do occur but that’s usually if the rash isn’t active... He put me on Valaciclovir on Monday (it’s now Thursday) and it appears to be getting worse. I am sceptical that

    Redness after outbreak?

    I've recently had a cold sore outbreak and used abreva to treat it. After the blisters drain 4-5 days later I usually apply vaseline to prevent dryness. It seemed to make the scab fall fast but now my lip is pink/red and has some residual swelling. Is this ok? How to I fix the color and slight swelling?
  20. Hi everyone, I just joined, and I've been feeling incredibly hopeless. I don't know where else to post to talk about my herpes/ cold sores, but I really need help. I feel so lonely and depressed about this. I've had herpes for 4 years, and the first two years, I was able to sort of "tame" it. I would get the usual herpes on the lips, twice a year, and then I would wait for it to scab and fall off. But two years ago, I had an incredibly stressful argument with my mom. We were full blown screaming at each other, and she wouldn't leave me alone even after the argument was over, it was so, so bad.
  21. Okay so im gonna go in depth about everything because the last time i posted i guess i wasn't as specific as i could've been. Okay so. September 8th, i was down in the dumps. I'm not asking for sympathy but i did sleep with a guy that I knew id never see again for the whatevers of it, using sex as an escape, which was pretty stupid but we can't all make bright choices, anyway in early october i got an almost zit like bump on my lip. And i popped it. After freaking out of course. And it oozed a little pus but shortly after there was some clear fluids, they kinda slowly oozed until it healed. It

    I NEED SOMEONE TO TALK TO

    Can I please get someone to talk to here?????? I think I'm drowning in pains
  23. Hi. First of all, let me explain... I have been in a relationship with my partner for 28 years. For the past three years, I have been living in Spain and working. - still contibuting to the house, and my youngest son is enjoying a free private education because of my benefits at school. In the past my partner has used sex as a weapon - meaning that he refuses me - for the last 15 years as a kind of punishment for me getting pregnant with our youngest who is nearly 17. He loves my kids to bits, but I went through major depression as a result of emotional blackmail and pressures at work. Howeve
  24. I gave my partner oral herpes but I haven’t told him yet. I was just diagnosed 2 days ago. A little background, I’m a normal 20 something year old. I have been having sex with my partner for about 7 months now. When we first started messing around it was more so of a thing that “just happened” (protection was used) around this time he was also talking to another girl as well. We eventually just started hanging out more and we got closer. We’re together all the time, even though we never actually said we were boyfriend and girlfriend. Back in june I was raped by my boss ( he didn’t use protecti
  25. Dear all, first of, i’m thankful I found this website. I’ve been diagnosed with genital warts a few months back since April and it hasn’t been pleasant. As I was doing my treatment for genital warts, immediately as I went home I realised some small bumps which then immediately turned into huge yellow ulcers that really hurts like shit. Hence I went back to my doctor the next day and she was surprised as well, 1. Is there a chance of contacting genital herpes from oral sex? 2. I do not have any blisters Nor rashes but these sores does hurts and pee-ing is just terr
