Hi i just signed up, first of all it was such a, i can't say relief, but a help to know that i am not the only one going through this. I feel like i'm surrounded by people from the disney channel who have no problems ,and i haven't told any of my friends; though i can only imagine that i am stressing them out with my temper. I'm not sure who i can tell. I did tell my mom. I couldn't even breath when i was at school and i saw these bumbs and then every day has been like up and down. I seem to be ok when i'm around people but when i'm by myself i'm not.

I've gotten a blood test for hsv and tested neg but i'm still sure i have it. I'm go to see a dermatalogist in two days for hpv and hsv. I find myself hoping i only have one since either one will change my life.

hi 0cool,

well until you get tested, there is still a chance that you do not have it. I fthe blood test came back negative, why are you sure you have it? Does it look like the pictures you see, or blisters? Did the doctor swab the bumps?

If could be HPV, in that case you could get the warts burned and they probably wont come back. there a link at the right called :"what looks similar" you should check it out.

good luck

Frustrated young man

Those blood tests are based on anti bodies and if you do it too soon then they might not show up. I mean that leaves to much of a possibility. I have been getting these sores, but no blisters. I'm frustrated because in order to see the doctor you have to make an apointment, so i'll not likely have the sore by then or at the same time. I'm thinking about going to someplace where they can tell me on the spot like a std clinic or something.

Thankyou Xela for the suggestion. I'm I was prescribed aldara the first time i saw my doctor about my concerns about a month ago. So i guess thats only thing i could see would possibly cause this type of iritation. Ingrown hair or jock itch just doesn't seem so realistic.

      I am fortunate enough to live near one of the most prestigious hospitals in the USA that rates high in infectious disease diagnosis & treatment. I went to a specialist and asked direct questions including about casual sex. Firstly, I have ghsv1. She said: Casual sex is NOT off the table. When someone chooses to have casual sex, they are accepting the risk of contracting an STI. There is no obligation to disclose in this situation unless going without a condom. The risk is extremely low from a one time protected encounter . Don't do it if you are having symptoms. If you have sex with this person repeatedly, especially if you go without protection then you should disclose. If someone rejects you for it she says he's an asshole and a germaphobe. Because it's no big deal

      I wanted to validate your choice. He saying 500mg. Plus he was saying it was his favorite for HSV.

      Immediately after it clears Phase 3, they might price Pritelivir in an exorbitant fashion and only prescribe it to immunodeficient patients (AIDS). I'm also curious how fast HSV is expected to evolve resistance against Pritelivir.

      So I disclosed for the first time last week. I was feeling confident after reading all of the positive disclosure stories out there. I was armed with the stats and presented the information in a calm manner as recommended. I was happy to find out that the guy already had a lot of knowledge about it because had an ex w the same issue. It was nice to have sex without having to worry about harboring a secret, I felt normal for once   I got a text from him in the AM and I was hoping for the usual "had a great time, can't wait to see you again" but instead he was blithering on about being paranoid about the contact. We exchanged one more message that day, and today I sent one, no response..... pretty certain I've been ghosted.  I am back to that dark place where I feel like I'm unlovable / unfuckable dreg of society. I'm a single parent which doesn't help, nobody wants a relationship w someone like me... add the herpes and I might as well be a 400 lb amputee on welfare with an IQ of 70. I feel like I am going to have to eventually "settle" for someone that is willing to be with me, but I don't really like them. I feel that a man that is willing to accept this is probably an unwanted outcast himself.  So ultimately I fear I will have nobody, or settle for a guy that disgusts me

      Maybe I should up my intake of olive leaf?
