Hi Kg87, and welcome to the forum!

No worries here about telling anyone...we ALL have it. ;)

Please feel free to ask as many questions as you like! The more you learn about the virus and how to manage it, the better you will feel. Read all the info links on this site, too. That will help you really begin to understand hsv. You also might enjoy talking to people on the live chat here. There's a link to that on the blue tool bar above.

Take care!

Shayna

Don't worry about telling anyone

It is no one else's business except those you might be intimate with. I have had this 'gift' several years and have never told a friend or family member. I only tell those women I have dated.

I have given the 'talk' many times and have never been rejected.

My advice to you is to seek out a support group in your area. Google "herpes support groups" or search yahoo groups since there are over 1500 groups with the name 'herpes' in them.

And join us in the live chat room if you wish. We could probably answer most or your questions.

Good luck!

JB

      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.
