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

      Any advice on on how i can change the way she thinks of her insecurities in the event I ever see her again or hang out with her or do you guys think that it's better too just walk away. The truth is though i never met another girl like her before and she was fine with me having herpes i could tell by the she reacted too it . How do you change the way someone views them self that has low self esteem.

      Note @Asr624 that an IgM result does not confirm a herpes diagnosis. Was the rash swabbed as well?

      Yes it's entirely possible that he didn't know and just now gave it to you. I've been with my husband almost 19 years and he was recently tested and is still negative. It's still possible of course that I could give it to him at any point. Sounds like you have a strong marriage and there is no reason this needs to be an issue other than a minor annoyance. I have 2 healthy children and have had no related medical issues due to HSV.

      I have been with him and didn’t tell him and now I can’t tell him because I know it would ruin any chance of reconciliation. I don’t want to live with this and I don’t want to live without him

      I am so sorry that happened to you. No one deserves that. Praying for you.
