herpes whitlow question

Recommended Posts

whyme11

i have developed a few small white bumps on one of my fingers. they are near my fingernail and i am pretty sure that it is whitlow. however, everything i read says whitlow is very painful with swelling and tingles etc. i have none of those symptoms, basically my bumps are clear and fluid filled sacs very similar to what one might get after a burn. just curious if anyone has any insight on this?

I have one white bump that's also filled with clear stuff and it doesn't hurt at all-- I wouldn't even know it was there if I didn't see it. I got it a day or so after I touched one of my herpes blisters (when I was just discovering them).

Maybe we're lucky and don't have pain?

i am virtually certain it is whitlow. i guess i am lucky in regards to having no pain etc.

anongirl just out of curiosity do you have ghsv? and are your ghsv symptoms pretty minor as well? i get no pain, tingling, burning, itching, nothing. just a little redness and i think that will eventually subside as i got it about 2 and half months ago.

I sometimes get little bumps with clear fluid inside on fingers in spring. Sometimes' a little itchy. I had those since elementary school. It would be more(5) in the years if I exercise a lot in the winter and wear not-so-thick clothes. I have GH, and I feel that is not the same.

      What was the comment? I don't see it on their official Facebook Given the recent news that Crispr can result in all sorts of erroneous cuts when double strand breaks are involved, I'm surprised to hear they still believe they will run trials in a few months. The FDA recently blocked ex vivo crispr trials, I can't imagine them letting in vivo trials move forward given the recent reports

      How do you get in touch with a Moderator for this site? I am being bullied, unbelievably, on a support site.  I can't just let it go because it is happening to other people too.

      For the last time, my name is not Jay.  My name is Amy.  I am not telling you my last name.  I am a woman, not a man.  I've reported all of your rude comments to me and asked an Admin to prove to you that I am not Jay.  You are really pissing me off.  I'm pretty sure Spinky is in the same group on FB for meningitis and he can vouch for me.  Now get a life and leave me alone!!!!

      Ronald, could you please stop with the capital letters; it's annoying to read.
