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.

      Give it a try and report back to us. It's pretty safe vaccine approved by the FDA.

      Have you tried changing your GP surgery? A decent doctor must surely realise that having back to back outbreaks warrants long term suppressive medication.  Aciclovir is available at very low cost to the NHS. I'd be firm with your doctor in what you'd like to do and make it clear you are educated on the relevant issues.  Don't be ashamed to talk to your GP. It is confidential.  FYI - walk in sexual health clinics (separate health record) are only as allowed to dispense a limited amount on the basis of episodic treatments.

      I agree, herpes doesn’t show up as discrete little dots like your pic.

      @Kurdt01Thank you! Very validating! And yes many doctors are so uninformed and misinformed it's incredibly frustrating.  ur right in multiple forums I've seen commenters invalidate someone's experience with herpes which is so weird. There's a wealth of experiences similar to both of ours but people put their hands to their ears and drill home "herpes is just a minor rash outbreak, nothing more."

      I got the zinc acetate from an pharmacy in my town, they can't sell reagents but I know the pharmacist. I cost me about 10 € a 50 gr bottle, enough for a decade at the current rate of consumtion. Otherwise it is quite easy to get, you can buy it from a laboratory or even in ebay. I apply the treatment on my glans about 2-3 times a week, I've never had any problem or adverse effect so far.
