My Best Friend....

Recommended Posts


My ex noticed a pimple on his dick. He popped it, he said. This is the loser I dumped. We weren't taking any precautions. I would feel a lot more helpless if this had happened despite being careful.

The plot thickens. I was seeing my best friend's ex behind her back. It fell through after a month, because I committed an effrontery to his ego and he dumped me. Despite my karmic retribution, I still felt like a sinner. Then she confessed that she had been having sex with the aforementioned loser.

My ex hasn't been tested yet. She doesn't know about his pimple. I am thinking we will wait until he gets tested to tell her. I am terrified. I shouldn't feel guilty, because she knows I have herpes and that he could as well. Despite having a nice boyfriend at the moment, she has only had four partners, and doesn't have much luck with men. If she has herpes, I will blame myself for the rest of my life.

      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.
