Question about outbreaks and UTIs

3 posts in this topic

I am having my first outbreak in many months. I am glad it has been so long since my last one....

However, I am also having a urinary tract infection, a very painful one. I have seen a number of people who have posted here say they had a UTI at the same time as their herpes outbreak.

What is the relationship between herpes and UTIs? I asked the doctor I saw yesterday for the UTI and she just nodded her head and said that the UTI was because the herpes lowered my immune system and so the UTI happened. But...I have had many outbreaks without a UTI, most of them in fact. And I have had a number of UTIs that were not associated with a herpes outbreak.

There does seem to be a strong association between the two, though. It's a real bad combination, UTI and GH outbreak.

Anyone know anything about this?

Did you get tested for a UTI? I know from my first OB I thought I had a UTI and really it was an outbreak in my UT. Maybe that is what is causing your discomfort?

Feel better soon! :)

How did you find out it was an outbreak in the urinary tract? Tests? I wondered if it could be that. Is that common? What is the treatment for that?
