  1. Hi everyone. Yesterday during the afternoon this sore popped up in the back of my throat/tonsil. I was hoping maybe today it would be gone, but it is still there and I have a worry it may be herpes. It is improving, but it hurts when I swallow. Also it is really red and irritated. Does anyone have an idea if this is a canker sore or something else?

    Prodrome or something else

    I was diagnosed 5 years ago hsv2+ by blood test. I requested the test because of constant vulvar and hip pain. I was prescribed 1g valacyclovir daily for suppression, no relief. I have prodrome symptoms that last for weeks even months at a time, burning, itching, tingling in my labia and perineum area as well as joint pain in my right hip. I have to date, never had any kind of visible outbreak. I'm currently on day 6 of another "flare up" and went to my NP for a visual check, positive for yeast and bacteria in urine, being treated with antibiotic and diflucan. Still no visible signs o

    I need help again :(

    Hi! Me again, I wanted to ask a few more questions and hope you take the time to read and help me. So Ive been sleeping with the same boy since September. He’s the only boy I’ve ever had unprotected sex with, I went to get checked and I’m clear for everything but herpes as it is not in the regular check. Once I found this out I then developed this obsession, I would spend at least four hours a day looking at photos online and my vagina, comparing my vagina to anything, with any spot I had, any piece of dry skin, any itch, I immediately thought it was down to that. I’ve had a doctor
  4. So basic every morning I wake up with a bunch of smegma on my tip it’s white. Like I’ll take a shower wash my meat and everything the next day it’s there. Also the side of my thighs have a white patch ashy it itchy sometimes but not big deal. Like shii annoying my doctor gave me balanitis cream but look like my glans still dry like wtf is going on mind you I’m a teen going through all them shii. I just want to be done w life🤦🏾‍♂️😡😔
  5. I have been trying to figure out if this is gHSV. I get really sensitive especially after shaving, I get the occasional tingling in my vagina but I've never had a sore or at least known of one. Last night my vagina was hurting after shaving and then I poured aloe on it and it nearly all cleared up. I have gotten 2 swabs and am waiting on a blood test, but both other blood tests and swabs came out negative for gHSV. Also I get cold sores.... -Does this look like herpes? -I am having trouble knowing the signs and symptoms because I'm always tired from college so its hard to tell -
  6. Stressed the fuck out

    Please tell me what you think. (Losing my sanity fast)

    Please tell me what you think this little red spot on my penile glans is. I had unprotected vaginal and oral sex on Saturday. Noticed this little spot on Wednesday. Haven’t had any actual symptoms physically. Also i can’t tell if the red bumps are inflamed PPP or not as I have PPP and am uncircumcised. Please for the love of god help me, tell me what you think this could be. I’m prone to anxiety and have been stressed out so bad that it’s affecting my work and personal life. It’s the only thing I have thought about since seeing it. It’s not inflamed itchy or painful in any way
  7. I got my HSV diagnosis yesterday and coped spectacularly...for about 24 hours. Now I’m freaking out, alternating between moderate anxiety and despair. I don’t currently have health insurance, my right eye feels weird, and it seems possible, maybe even likely, I autoinnoculated. Does anyone have any experience with this and/or advice for me? I’m assuming I should suck up the cost and see an ophthalmologist pronto because there must be some advantage to starting treatment sooner rather than later. (Of course, I could also just be making myself crazy....) All words of wisdom welcome, and thank yo
  8. Lately I've been in this depressive state and it's mainly because of having herpes. I was diagnosed almost five years ago. I take Valtrex almost everyday. I use to take 500mg twice a day. Now I take it once mainly towards the evenings and I honestly feel like it does nothing. I have not been able to suppress this virus. It has been active in my system since I contracted it and I've tried everything in the books to fight/ get it to go dormant. I feel like I have one of the strongest strains of herpes and it's spread to other parts of my body. The reason I say this is because, for the past year

    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

    What is this? :( PICTURE

    https://ibb.co/svZ63Cn hi veterans I have ghsv1. Outbreaks are usually occur in my anus. I saw this in my groin today. It's bleeding. Do you have any idea what it is? Is this a herpes? Is herpes spreading up? I am so afraid
  16. I met this guy out at the bar one night. I got drunk with my friends and we all went back to these guys' apartment. One thing lead to the next and I had sex with him. I'm still talking to this guy after a month and we've been hanging out along with intimate relations, with condoms. I am planning on telling him soon about my herpes but I am so scared on how he is going to react. I know I am completely in the wrong and I feel absolutely horrible about not disclosing with him sooner. I've cried almost everyday since knowing him, due to the guilt and disgust of myself. I like him a lot and don't

    Traveling with initial outbreak. HELP!!

    So I have recently been diagnosed with ghsv-1. I am traveling to Mexico soon tomorrow and my outbreak hasn’t completely healed as of yet. It’s been a week since taking the medicine and about a week and a half before noticing the outbreak. Even though it’s not painful to pass urine anymore but I’ve been pooping a lot and feel like I’m getting another outbreak inside of my anus. Are there any essentials that I should pack in order to subside the pain? Whilst home I’ve been taking epsom salt baths and adding tea tree oil to my sores.
  20. Hey folks. I posted here last week, I didn't include a picture so here it is. Also my previous post if no one saw it. Does it look like herpes to you? ----- Hey guys and girls. Anyone any advice for me? I feel at a loss. I haven't been properly diagnosed, only a visual diagnosis. On Friday night I was with my fella, we've been seeing each other for 5 months and always used a condom. Everything was fine, then Saturday I felt a little nippy down below. Sunday came and I decided to have a look down there. I was horrified at what I saw. In the entrance of my vagina was a ra
  21. shitshow


    I just got diagnosed yesterday 2/25/2019. I've almost been on meds a full 24 hours. It's been an actual shit show of a week. This week has been insane. At first symptoms didn't show up until four days after having unprotected sex. I have had chlamydia before (May 2018) and the symptoms looked the same. Wasn't painful until the fifth day. I kept asking my doctor for tests. "You have to set up an appt to get your lab paperwork (they don't do actual testing at my office, you have to go to the local hospital to do them)." So I get in there on the fourth day and nothing had even showed up yet.
