Is it possible???

Recommended Posts


Is it possible that an allergic reaction to a caneston pessary could be confused with Herpes?

I only ask.. as its after I used one of these that the itching got really bad and settled down a bit after I took antihystemine????

Or am i in denial???

Anything is possible... Did you get an hsv-1 or 2 test and test positive?

Because if you tested positive its highly unlikely that its an allergy because allergy's shouldnt be showing up positive...

Antihystemines will bring down itchyness and swelling on herpes as well i take them and it works wonders for mine...

Thanks for your response.

I havent had a blood test and I am awaiting results from having a lesion swabbed.

Can they tell if I have it...how long I have had it?

I ask about the allergic reaction as a few years ago I ended up in hospital from something that started off very similar, they thought it was Stevens Johnson syndrome.

I'm wondering if I could have contracted the herpes then and they mistook it for stevens johnson...???

I am a bit confused and trying to piece this together,

      The ashwagandha is good for thyroid health. I am not familiar with the rest. That is not a list I would put together!

      Hey @moonperson it is not likely that you have given a genital HSV-2 infection to 3 of your friends or your boyfriend from any of the activities that you describe. I'm sure this is all fine. How did your new diagnosis come about?

      Me too, me too, I hope you can reach you desired level of health... I just think it isn't fully fair in a way to imply that your unfortunate issues are caused by herpes when there is virtually no chance that they are.

      Hello y’all, im newly diagnosed with herpes simplex 2 and I’ve given it to 3 of my friends and boyfriend. It migrated from my genitals to my mouth and I smoked weed with my friends via pipe without understanding my infection fully. Then my boyfriend told me it’s okay to kiss and give him head cuz he loves me anyway. He’s not a big chaser or nothing, he’s just dumb. I’m living in constant anxiety and a tumultuous emotional state—just seeing if anyone has similar experiences and tips/tricks you may have picked up on the way leaving with herpes, either strain. Honestly, I’m just needing some support, even if herpes is “common” and “manageable”, it has been a heavy heavy weight on my mind.
