  1. I've been having bumps appear on my face around my mouth for a couple years now. They usually take several weeks to disappear but these current lesions have been here for months now and don't seem to be healing at all. I've been applying salicylic acid and oil of oregano twice a week but am having no luck and it appears to be getting worst. This has completely destroyed my self esteem and I've given up on trying to date... I've attached an image if anyone could help me out with a diagnosis or some type of regiment to help make them go away i'd be forever indebted! Thanks
  2. Hi everyone it's me again. I am really concerned if this is a canker or herpes sore. I got the sore yesterday and it wasnt too visible and I thought potentially it would go away today. I was wrong, it has gotten worse and more inflamed. Please I just need to know what this is. Is this a canker sore or something else.

  4. 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?
  5. Hi, I am in a state of freaking out currently because around 2 days ago a red cut formed on my gums, randomly. Then the next day it began to become sore. I have been sexually active in the past but I have never had a cold sore. Please can someone help if this is a canker or herpes sore. I'm terrified
  6. Hello everyone, First thankyou so much for taking the time to read/reply. I could use your help so badly. I had sex unprotected one year ago. A week afterwards I had some itching of the foreskin so went to the doctor, and was advised it was Balanitis. I got some cream and it went away within a few days. Since then I had a full STI panel of Chlamydia, Gonhorrea, Syphilis, HIV, and Hepatitis - all negative. Last week I had sex with someone new. She was a virgin, and we used a condom. Now since then, for the last 6 days I have had burning down my urethra - not while peeing, but just in
  7. Had unprotected sex like 2-3 months ago. For a long time nothing came up. The I saw bumps appear between my thighs, thought it was razor bumps. Then my skin started shedding a lot, kinda like when kids cover their hand in glue and peel it off if that makes sense. I scratched/picked at some of them (and those were the only ones that “popped” and they were like open sores. Now they just go through this cycle of scabbing the the scab gets peeled off by my clothes or whatever and it starts all over. They don’t hurt, it tingled here or there, and I wouldn’t say it’s itchy but I’ve had the urge to s
  8. Hey, I have been effective by herpes simplex virus for 21 days. And l still have the pain and lesion. I went to the doctor 2 weeks ago, she said that ”is getting better, there is no lesion in the area. ” and l had sex with my boyfriend while using a condom. After that l got the pain and lesions again. Last night l checked and l didn't see any lesions and didn't feel any pain and we thought it's gone. We had sex and now l have the pain again. My question is when l get rid of this pain and lesions? Is it bad to have sex before lesions still in there even l barely see them? Also, my per
  9. 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

  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. hello, i was here in june with what I thought was maybe an oral ob. 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.

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?

  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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?
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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.
  24. 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
