First Outbreak Symptoms...do I wait it out?

Recommended Posts

So after my initial breakdown on this site, I now can formulate more questions. There are several so please bear with me...

1) Did anyone else experience flu like symptoms and swollen glands as part of their first outbreak? My throat hurts so badly I can barely swallow. Which sucks because I am drinking tons of liquids to keep my urine diluted. I was wondering how long those symptoms lasted for you. Like do they go away when the outbreak does or should I be taking something for it?

2) I can't tell which is causing me more pain right now. The bumps themselves or the areas that have become raw where I was previously treated for HPV. Whatever the case, I've been having crazy amounts of discharge (this is all so disgusting..sorry) and it burns like hell. Since my doctor never called me back I am guessing it's not candida and is just associated with the herpes. But how am I supposed to treat it? Will that just go away too?

3) I don't really know who infected me..but if it's who I'm thinking it was, I also gave him oral sex. Is it possible to get infected with oral and genital herpes at the same time? And if so, would they manifest at the same time as well? I really would hate to have cold sores on top of what's going on "downtown".

Thanks so much for any insight. I suppose I should be asking my doctor this but she's worthless. I really need to find a new one that has some experience with this (I think I must be her most problem patient :rolleyes:).

      Do you shop at Amazon.com? Next time you shop, you can also automatically donate a portion of the proceeds to the Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society.  This Society organizes the symposium on latency of herpes viruses.  It was here that Keith Jerome announced that he had edited almost 20%-30% of latent HSV in mice last year. (http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/medicalschool/departments/neurology/CALS/Documents/2018 CALS abstracts.pdf) You have to go through smile.amazon.com to set up ongoing donations whenever you shop through smile.amazon.com. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Yes, I understand that I must always start at smile.amazon.com to support Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society. Why is there a separate URL? The AmazonSmile program offers customers a new benefit, making a donation to your favorite charity. We're able to provide this benefit to you when you choose to start your shopping at smile.amazon.com in part because we expect AmazonSmile to grow primarily through word of mouth instead of paid advertising—and this enables us to fund donations to our customers’ favorite organizations.

      WOW, it's true.  So cool!  Thanks for sharing. In my view, for the time being, we can just help support the Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society, rather than asking Fred Hutch to set something up through Amazon.   Here is an important message though, you have to go through smile.amazon.com to do the donation. According to them:     Yes, I understand that I must always start at smile.amazon.com to support Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society. Why is there a separate URL?
