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???

:confused:

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,

Thanks
