The blister that won't go away

Recommended Posts


I have had genital herpes for 4 years now and am experiencing the most stubborn OB since my first one. I have had one blister now for over a week and have been taking 1500 mg of Valtrex and it is refusing to disappear. It is not really painful, just annoying. My lymph node is swollen on the same side as the OB. Any suggestions? I have read something in the past about applying acetone (nail polish remover) topically may help??? Seems dangerous? Any input would be helpful.

I'm not sure about nail polish remover, but I have heard a lot about Oil of Oregano helping. It burns though, so I've seen it recommended to mix it with a little aloe and apply it, unless you're prepared for the burn. :) Also, Lysine supplements are supposed to help it heal. :) Good luck!

      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.
