    Newly Diagnosed & Depressed

    On Feb 10, I slept with somebody new. I specifically asked him if he had been tested for HSV and HIV via blood test. He told me he had just been tested two months ago and everything was negative and he hadn’t slept with anybody in a year. He either lied to me about being tested or lied about his status. I believe he knew he had HSV2, was not taking antivirals, and didn’t care if he infected me. Now he is using it to make me feel like I HAVE to stay with him because we both have this. And he is minimizing it. I am in pain, depressed, having suicidal thoughts (don’t think I’d act on th

    Is this herpes?

    I’ve always had a problem with razor bumps, very bad problem. But this time, I’m not too sure if this is genital herpes or just regular razor bumps. I’m waiting on my swab culture test to get back to me, but it takes a couple of days. I recently used a razor that was super old, so I really hope its just razor bumps and not herpes. Im starting to let the hair grow back in and so far, when I pee it doesn't hurt anymore, so maybe that’s a sign of it healing. I noticed the bumps when I was having intercourse and I had to stop because the pain was bad. Those are the only signs I noticed that these
  4. Does anybody have any suggestions on how you deal with pain at work or when you are out? I have hsv2 I am in the beginning of a break out this one is bad. I can’t really afford to call in so if anybody has any tips I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks.
  5. Hey guys for those who struggle with daily nerves pain with doctor saying its not related to Herpes, please have a look on "Elsberg Syndrom" on Google. It describes exactly what we have, there are few study of it. It's important that doctors are aware of it, changing the vision they have of herpes, which is not just a "skin condition" for some of us
  6. 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
  7. Ive been going through hell, itchy tailbone, clear discharge, difficulty urinating, pain on tip of penis dull back pain and now this rash..Please someone help. I cant take it! Ive been tested but it was negative. Maybe too early idk just please help.
  8. Approximately 5 years ago a girl gave me a peck on the lips, I wiped my lips off. The next morning I woke up with a painful rash all over my top lip that dried up and resulted in chapped lips, where the skin died and regenerated. No pus or obvious cold sore. I have had this same outbreak approximately once a year in the same place except for this year where I have had it almost continuously, I have been very stressed. I went to the doctor who says it isn't cold sores (I have to wait 2 weeks for a blood test), however I have found someone ( To those with oral HSV2 only by Penumb
  9. 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

    Hey everyone. I’ve read a lot of posts and have talked to some people from the forums who suffer in various ways from this virus. I’ve also heard the term ‘neuralgia’ being thrown around in posts, but have yet to figure out what kind of pain and its origin is for all the people that said they experience it. Please do me a favor and comment below about your experience with it and where it causes you problems and what kind of pain is it exactly? This might help some other newer members also understand. Thanks.

    Severe Pain

    Hi, I've recently been diagnosed with herpes. At first, it was a sore, then spread to multiple sores that hurt severely when I'd pee. I haven't been eating much. It has been a week and the sores don't hurt as bad, but the pain from my lower back hurts all the way down to my toes. It is severe nerve pain and my skin feels flu like. It is constant. This is my first outbreak. Has anybody else experienced this. The pain is so excruciating I want to throw up.

    Newly diagnosed and alone

    Hello all, I’m a female and was just diagnosed GHSV 1 and I’m devastated. I really need someone to talk to about their experience. I’m at the end of my rope with general practitioners and their horrible bedside manner. If one more person spits a statistic at me or dismisses the psychological pain I’m going through, I’m going to lose my mind. Cannot see a psychologist for another week. Seems like nothing will ever be the same. Please help me.
  13. Im 19, I don't know how this happened but it did. I have not got my results back but I am 110% positive i have herpes. There are bumps lesions and open wounds everywhere, and i show all symptoms. At first I was very suicidal on the fact that I could be HSV2 positive but my mom calmed me down.she told me, it is what it is, and that I can still manage to have a normal life despite this. Im very scared as of right now. Im over the fact that it is herpes but i am in terrible pain. I can't sit i can't lay down i can't stand, walk or move. I had to sleep sitting up last night. I am scared to go pee

    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 co
  17. I think I might have Genital HSV (yet to be confirmed by a test, I have to wait couple more months for a definitive WB). Has anyone experienced burning like pain in different parts of the body, which quickly moves from one spot to another ? I feel pain in front of my knee of my left leg for a few seconds or a minute which they moves to my left leg thigh or calf and then moves to my hand fingers or arms. I also feel pain behind my shoulders, and lower and upper back pain. I am also observing almost constant Tinnitus, which seems to have gotten worse tonight. I am seeing an ENT tomorrow fo
  18. Hello, I am currently have an ulcer that has caused excruciating pain. This is the first time I have have an ulcer like this. I was late with my lemon balm this time and i think its only making it worse. Its flesh colored and i need help healing this one and riding of the pain. (Im already on episodic valtrex 1g for this ob but it's not helping with healing process or pain). Suggestions???
  19. Well, it's been one week since I was diagnosed with HSV 2, genital herpes. I'm a 26 year old female and I've only had sex with five men in my entire life. None of them have ever shown symptoms, as far as I know. I originally started feeling like I had a yeast infection (I get them semi-frequently) and I started to get sick. It felt like I had the flu, or something similar. Because of what I know about my past sexual partners, I'm pretty sure that I've had herpes for a very long time without having an outbreak, and never knew I carried the virus. Then I got really sick with a flu-like viru
  20. Does this look normal or does it look like a penis with herpes? Never paid attention to my penis till I had sex and then started to worry about stds. Seems to wrinkly/cracked , doesn't hurt.

    hsv2 symptoms... Normal???

    I got my first ob about 8/1/17, and my last one was cleared about 9/10/17. For the last 4 weeks I've had groin lymph tenderness (bothersome), hamstring and butt slightly sore like I've worked out. My question is is this normal? Will it go away? I'm on suppressive antiviral drugs. I also take some mild supplements- vita B, C, D, garlic, lysine, sjw, selenium, echinacea, and zinc. I'm glad to be ob free for the last 3 weeks, I would eventually like to get off of antiviral meds and go with a natural suppressor. Im really wanting to start with the Olive Leaf Extract, but id like to feel 100

    Looking For Ways to Ease the Pain

    Hello! I have just been diagnosed with Herpes and I am currently experiencing my first outbreak. I have used an ice compress as needed and that really helps with the pain. However, I am a college student and I am forced to walk about campus which causes me great pain. I can't carry an ice pack with me everywhere so I am looking for any advice on how to keep my pain levels down. I have just taken some Tylenol extra strength and I hope it helps but nothing yet. Thank you in advance :-)
  23. Hello!! I recently just joined this forum today. I'm writing this for all my fellows whom are going through the same thing as me. It's crazy, I could barely find anything on a site that honestly helped except from hours on googling and trying everything. Before I start, here's some facts about me. I was diagnosed 2 years ago, within the 2 years I had 4 outbreaks. I'm on my 4th one as I type. ***NOTE EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT, AND YOU SHOULD ALWAYS TALK TO A DOCTOR, THESE REMEDIES HELPED FOR ME AND MAY DIFFER FROM EACH PERSON*** I've googled and googled, what some people's triggers
  24. A friend of mine suggested I try glutathione cream, because of its immune boosting health benefits. After a full weekend of sun and drinking, I felt the early signs of an OB. I had pain along my outer thigh (my usual OB site) and sacral area, the pain includes shooting electric pain and burning. I applied the cream all along my outer thigh, and the back of my thigh, as well as my sacral area (where the dermatomes are located, as well as the nerve root). I applied the cream three times that day, and the next morning the pain and sensations were gone! I kept applying the cream 3x day for th
  25. I am riding out my first OB of ghsv2. Most of the twenty or so ulcers have scabbed over and are healing after a week, but a few of them that are on the inner lip of my labia are not healing at all. Still swollen, red, open sores. Because of their location it seems like I can't keep them dry unless I'm laying around with my legs open all day long, which is impossible, I have two small children to care for. What can I do to speed this up? I am on Valtrex, I've tried essential oils, a beeswax based lysine cream, even antibiotic spray with an anelgesic in it which burned like a motherfucker before
