    Had Shingles at age 28.

    I got my fist Cold sore at age 27. I have only had two Outbreaks since then. (I'm 29 now). I did however, got a Shingles outbreak at age 28 (About a month or two, after my second Cold sore outbreak). I know its rare to get a second Outbreak of Shingles. Since getting the Shingle outbreak. I havent gotten a cold sore outbreak. Is it possible that my body developed a stronger immune system cause of the Shingle Virus? I also heard that some people get two Cold sore Outbreaks their whole lives. Just wondering if anyone here have dealt with these two different Outbreaks. Thanks J
  3. Hey All, I have recently tested positive for HSV2 (IgG @ 3.63) Trying to figure some things out... I believe I am experience what is my second outbreak at the moment. I am wondering if my symptoms are typical, or if maybe there's something else going on other than an outbreak, like PHN (Postherpetic Neuralgia), or maybe shingles. Days before any symptoms on my genitals appeared, the skin on the back of my right leg hurt. It felt like a moderate sunburn, but the skin looked fine. Over a few days this 'sunburn' pain moved up my leg towards my butt, then to my scrotum and groin

    Whitlow and Shingles Vaccine

    HI -I experience whitlow outbreaks in my right arm, (pinky finger) and stupidly allowed the shingles vaccine to be injected in that arm last week. I wanted to let people know that I am experiencing a *huge* amount of pain and am getting small raised bumps on my middle finger, outside of palm of hand, armpit, and maybe elbow and wrist. The bumps are not becoming classic blisters, but they are seriously painful (as is my whole arm). I have had herpes since I was 23, and only transferred it to my hand after accidentally getting zovirax into my cuticle while spreading medicine on a cold-sore 20
