  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

  3. Hi All, Me and my wife positive for hsv1 igg with value 2.1(wife) and 3.9(husband) tested four times in a year range not changed. We both do not have any symptoms of hsv1. We do not have hsv2 which is always negative. We are trying for baby, and had two miscarriage in the time spawn of 1.4 yr. Is there any relationship between hsv1 positive igg leading to miscarriage?? Anyone faced same issue with hsv1 and miscarriage.

At that point it had been post exposure by 4 months and i ended up testing neg 1&2 igg. i just tested again and was neg for both, no new contact. Monday night my nose all of a sudden became EXTREMELY itchy in just one nostril. the next morning and day all of these white bumps popped up all over it. I put abreva all in my nose. this morning i woke up and it was irritated but all the white bumps were gone. I calmed down but then i just looked and it looks like there's little erosions inside my nose now. The

    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?

  7. 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
  8. Hello. I've already been diagnosed with genital herpes. But now I'm nervous I may also have oral herpes. I've been getting what I believe to be pimples around my mouth (not clusters, one little dot at a time), but I got nervous it might be oral herpes so I went to get tested. Hopefully they can find out. For now, I'm preparing myself for this new normal and trying to treat it like it is, without taking the medication. I'm nervous about washing my face and putting on makeup and transferring it to other parts of my face. I do wash my hands obsessively, but I know that won't always
  9. So I went for a culture swab for HSV2and it took 2 weeks for me to get my results back. I got a call from the nurse practitioner who took the test for me and she told me it was negative. They were just razor burns, I should stop shaving, etc. as I previously mentioned in a post weeks before. A week later I get a call from a doctor who’ve I havent met or who didn’t take my test saying my results were positive. Im so confused, so I went down there to get my results and it says isolated, which he explained meant Iam positive for HSV2. I asked for a retest since I was told two different results, b
  10. Hi All, As we know or read everywhere that 90% of people don't know about they have herpes because they don't get symptoms. If only IgG test getting positive and no symptoms then can we do the PCR test on blood sample?? As symptomless person can not be swabed specially male patient. How accurate PCR test on blood. If someone took treatment by considering IgG positive, if he want to confirm if treatment working or not can be confirmed by PCR on blood?? After treatment as well IgG may take time to go negative but can we check virus DNA particles in blood using PCR?? I have re

    Herpes and Constipation

    I have noticed that I now have chronic constipation after my primary outbreak. Scientists have found a link to it. Has anyone else had this issue? Treatments?
  12. 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
  13. To speak off my title it is no different than any relationship. Normally I chat with others, chat is down and I wanted to open this up to anyone with questions. I chat with so many people that tell me that they fear dating, disclosing and giving HSV to someone else. I don't know where to begin, I lay here unable to sleep with this wonderful man next to me sleeping so peaceful and I am so thankful for him and the love he gives me. I wondered through the kitchen checked the fridge to make sure our leftover dinner was sealed proper so he will have a good lunch tomorrow at work. I noticed he ch
  14. I had unprotected sex November 16th 2019. I tested positive for HSV2 on December 10th >5 (igg) , retested December 14 and now stated >13.80 (igg quest). Today is December 16th and I have yet to have any symptoms or lesions anywhere. HOWEVER, a Week later after exposure I had a sore throat to where drinking and swallowing was very painful for about a week. I know she Has HSV2 because she told me (deceivingly too late) and I understand HSV2 is rare in the throat but could this be my case? I hope so. No initial OB on my genitals in 30 days since exposure with no medications.
  15. 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
  16. Hey all-- So last week I was diagnosed with genital HSV-1. My doctor did a swab test. I really was not expecting the results to be positive for herpes, I'm still in shock, scared, and confused. What is really confusing to me is that my doctor while he was doing the swab test said he "didn't see any blister". What I have is very tiny and it feels like a tiny ingrown hair. It is very hard to see even with a flashlight. I went back to visit with my doctor to discuss the results and again he said what he swabbed did not look like a normal herpes blister, but it could have popped or broken, an
  17. https://ibb.co/hVc7NVs https://ibb.co/NSQGtFB Hi the above pics are of my tongue and bottom lip. I'm concerned that I may have some sort of allergy or virus happening. The tongue feels quite irritated at times and you can see the red dots visible on the front of it. Also my lip (bottom) is always dry and cracks if I open my mouth quickly without thinking about it. It has been like this for some time now and seems to be getting worse. Is this a sign of something bad or could my constant stress and terrible diet be causing this. I will be seeing my doctor really soon so I just w
  18. Hi, I have been suffering from a sort of burning tip of my tongue and a little uncomfortable sensation in my mouth. Sometimes, depending on what i have eaten or drunk i get a blackish/deep red spot on the side of my tongue and lots of little dots near the tip of my tongue. These do not ooze, scab or ache but just appear. I also have white dots on my lip (top) which look like Fordyce and my bottom lip also seems to be constantly chapped and peeling in places. My nose had also become itchy and greasy and sometimes red patches appear on my face, near my eyebrows. Has anyone had
  19. Has anyone had a better experience with Valcyclrovir rather than Acyclovir?? Have been wondering which seems to suppress the virus more effectively and have been thinking about switching to Valcyclrovir as I’ve read that it combats the virus better since it had a better bioavailability? Which seems to work for y’all??

    Help?

    *photo included* I don’t know what these are but I’ve had them as long as I can remember, they’ve never been itchy or sore, but my girlfriend wants to take things to the next level and I’m kinda worried
  21. 6 days ago when shaving the base of my penis I found a small 2-3mm hard flesh coloured lump, I assumed it was an ingrown hair and squeezed but seeing nothing obvious happening I stopped and assumed it would clear up shortly. The following day it was slightly larger and red looking, this remained for 3 days and on the 4th day I thought I could see a hair, picked at it and almost like a small scab came away with a hair in it. It’s reduced in size but 2 days later it’s still there. Starting to really worry, I had protected sex with two new partners, one about 6-7 weeks ago and one
  22. Hi, Suppose both husband and wife are positive for HSV 2 and symptoms are not present. No treatment going on. Can try for children and have healthy baby without any risk of passing infection to baby?? For sure we will go for C-section delivery but still want to know any risk after this?? I have read in recent studies that baby may get herpes virus DNA from parents in the uterus like other DNA. Is that DNA cause severe symptoms in baby for herpes? Can this virus passes to baby via placenta in mother's uterus?? Please advise.
