Possible to not get the itchy feeling during OB?

Recommended Posts

tenderheart22

I thought one of the common signs of herpes was the itchyness. I have never had this. Just burning, and leg pains. Do other people not get the itchyness?

sometimes I do, sometimes I dont. I have hsv 1 and 2, both genitally. when I have an hsv2 ob, no itching, when i have an hsv1 ob, lots of itching. go figure.

How do you even know you are having an HSV 1 outbreak as compared to an HSV 2 outbreak? Do they look different? Because I know that I have HSV 1 and I suspect I might have HSV 2 as well, both genitally.

my hsv2 obs are the visible sores, no itching, severe back pain and leg cramps. my hsv1 obs are lots of itching, redness, swollen, no sores, less severe back pain and leg cramps. Also, the hsv1 obs last longer. UGH.

I have hsv-1 genitally, and sometimes it itches, and sometimes I can just see the tiny cut-like sores. Usually my first cue is what I see, not necessarily any itching.

I am reading The Truth about Herpes and yes, you can have an OB without itching. Leg pain may be your prodhome symptom instead of itching.

      @srinivas thank you for the suggestion. Are you on antivirals? How long have you had HSV? How well do you feel now that you are taking the supplements?

      It doesnt really mean much yet. They still dont know if the herpes is taking advantage of a diseased brain or causing the disease. Furthermore, there is evidence that Alzheimer's might be caused by oral spirochete disease and even Lyme. Many of you could have oral Spirochetes but the Lyme and is less likely. https://globallymealliance.org/pathogen-cause-alzheimers-disease/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5008232/ https://newsblog.drexel.edu/2016/02/10/do-infections-cause-alzheimers-disease/   Of course it could be both! Maybe having hsv-1 and oral spirochetes quadruples the risk.  In my opinion the spirochete theory sounds more likely and its hard to dismiss neurosurgeons and caretakers getting Alzheimers from a disease that was previously thought to be non contagious. I'd worry more about Spirochetes.

      I wonder if people in the military are tested for hsv, because the general public isn’t. You have to specifically ask for it and many doctors don’t even see the point because it’s “so common”. It’s very possible he has it and has no symptoms or very mild random symptoms. Sorry to hear what you’re dealing with. It seems like women’s symptoms are worse than men’s.

      No that’s not the issue at all. The absolute vast majority of nerve pain is not caused by herpes. Hence it cannot be used to reverse engineer a diagnosis of herpes. That is exceptinally dangerous and we must do all we can encourage proper diagnosis.
