Thanks everyone! That makes me feel better. I think I have just been paranoid because it was the first time I had sex with someone since getting H. I'm sure it's something else. It was just super weird though because he was all about me even after we had sex.. Even when I was gone... And then as soon as I was back, just totally uninterested. But his loss I guess...time to move on.
since i have been recently diagnosed with genital herpes. i have few doubts about my breakouts.
in this early october, i had my first breakouts, and obviously it was very painful time for me. but when my breakouts disappered , i again felt itching and tingling on my genitals,anus and all over the area of buttocks and inner thigh. i tought since it is healing therefore it is itching. but it continued for a week. when i went to the doctor to ask about this condition, with the fact knowing i have herpes, she told me it may be due to fungal infection and prescribed me medicines according to that. after taking medicines 20% itching was gone but still itching continued. yesterday itself i noticed one red bump on my one part of my vaginal lip. and the following day i saw same 2-3 lesions on my vaginal lips and inside of it. it is still itchy but mild than the first breakouts.
now my question arises is it possible to have your second breakout without a gap or 2-3 breakouts in a row. because i have my 2 breakouts that is primary and the second breakout within a month.
I contracted HSV2 about 3 months ago. Ironically I met an amazing guy not too long after and I couldn't be happier with how things are going. We have been intimate but I don't feel like I can't completely be myself because I'm not sure what we can do and what we cant. He doesn't have HSV so I fear that I will give it to him. I know there will always be a risk for him no matter if we use protection or not. I just feel that I could be more confident with that part of our relationship and not hold back as much if I knew exactly what our boundaries were in terms of protecting him. Any suggestions????
i would like to know how to deal with breakouts with simple home remedies. because i dnt want to depend on medicine everytime i have breakout. so please do share your best remedies tried and yourself and worked.
Please don't worry you are among friends. Sometimes things don't come across too well but be assured you are being taken seriously
The good news is that Halford's vaccine is suggesting good results in dealing with nerve pain... so if all goes well with that and you are able to gt the vaccine it should at least clear it up if it is H related. I know it's not just around the corner yet but it is going to happen so should be hope for the future. Maybe apply for a trial as you would be able to give good evidence as to whether it is helpful especially as you have HSV1 and 2
Good luck and don't go away!
Thank you for all your replies, they have been tremendously helpful!
I think I will disclose to the second guy as it is more likely that he might have given it to me. However, it's been nearly 3 months since my first OB, so when I tell him he'll be confused as to why I didn't say sooner.
Obviously it was because I was coming to terms with it, researching and dealing with the effects. But if I explain this to him he'll think of it as a big deal....which I don't want.
And the second thing is, how do I tell him as he lives in a different country. We talked a few days ago and there are talks of meeting again, nothing set in stone (it's a very spontaneous relationship) so this could either be from a few months time to a year.
Would it be terrible if I didn't tell him until we met in person again? I think I would prefer this, but I obviously have no idea how he would react. If he did know he had it (not cool for not telling me), I'm sure he wouldn't care. But if he didn't and his views were distorted about it, he might be upset I didn't inform him sooner. And when asked why I didn't...I really wouldn't know what to say.
So basically I'm looking for a valid reason as to why I hadn't informed him immediately after my OB, but one that doesn't make herpes sound as if it's a big deal!
Thanks in advance, you guys are great!
Genocea's chief scientist Fletcher was too dismissive of prior research in my opinion in her recent article as she was setting out to validate Atlas. Some of that prior research as well as halford's live vaccine results in mice show ICP's targets like icp8 and icp10 are major targets. Genocea got icp4 but they're missing icp0/8/10. Everyone has been focused on glycoproteins and antibodies when cd4/8 after the cells which clear up the OB's. Antibodies help but it's only a fraction of the equation
