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.

      I wish you luck my friend! It’d be nice to find something! The only two things I’ve ever tested positive for during this whole mess was a fungal infection in the groin creases, found by biopsy, and the nerve biopsy found nerve damage. I just hate thinking I’m unluncky enough to have HSV1 which is suppose to be the most tame where supposedly people have few if any problems with it, and mine have been endless! Do you have extremely sweaty scrotum and inner thighs when you wake up and periodically throughout the day? That’s been driving me nuts!

      This was about 10 mins ago I tried squeezing it to see if anything came out of it, it also didn’t hurt sorry for the pics I am also on my period so it isn’t going to be nice, I’m sorry for this !:(

      Sorry to bombard your post hun but I’ve got a cut too on my vagina (labia) I shaved the night previous and the next day I had an itch so I itched with but I didn’t put my hand down their I used my knickers and all of a sudden I felt an irratation so I went to go have a look and I found this, it doesn’t hurt when touched and doesn’t hurt when I pee I can sit around and stuff, is this the same thing as yours? I’m going insane right now I’ve got health anxiety I want to cry thinking I have herpes 1st pic is what it was like when I looked first  2nd pic is when I got out the shower  3rd pic is now  and 4th pic is when I tried squeezing it to see if anything came out of it ( it never hurt either)  After shower pic

      That is exactly what mine look like (on one side of labia anyway) and the rest are kind of dark red flat pimple bumps
