I'm not sure if I'm having an outbreak...

Recommended Posts

Stephaniehatesthis

This sounds dumb but I don't know if I'm having an outbreak. My area has been feeling drier than normal, and especially in my butt crack (sorry, but it's true). Since my initial diagnosis and outbreak in October of 08 I have not had an outbreak so I'm not totally sure what to expect. *By the way I have GSV-1*

So, am I having one? I expect to see bumps, but I don't have any. Just tenderness and redness, and what appears to be some sort of rash. Just to be safe I just took a 1 G Valtrex anyway, and will continue to do so. But I just want to know for my own sake what is going on.

Any help is appreciated!!

Sorry to hear that you are going through this.

I'm assuming you have ruled out all the - different soap, different underwear, showers instead of baths, different soap powder, shaved / waxed, etc

My second ob was the same but much smaller, but from reading on here people have very different obs.

Can you see your doctor to rule out anything else?

I guess I just don't know what to expect. The only thing that I can relate to was the initial outbreak, which was bumps, blisters, and severe pain. Nothing like what I am going through now, which is blistering almost.

I took a 1 G Valtrex last night and I'm doing better. I guess that would be the answer to my question huh? Was that an outbreak? I can't even tell. It's hard to pinpoint it and be like "Oh! That's an outbreak!" because I have no clue.

The "unkowing" is horrible. I hope you feel better soon.

PS if you want a laugh I didn't know I was going to give birth the SECOND time, it was totally different - blonde or what !:o

      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!

      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
