Hi everyone

I'm AmyAngell :oops:

This is my first time on a forum. I just want to talk to people who are in a similar situation to me sp we can help each other out and feel better about everything - I have HSV1 but in the genital area - I got from an ex's coldsore :( I think it's so easy to slip into being miserable and feeling sorry for myself and I don;t want that. I'm hoping that being on here I can make sense of everything and make some friends who understand how I feel. :-D

Hello and welcome

I am so glad you are taking a positive approach toward all of this. After all, it's really just a cold sore "downstairs," right? And one of these days there will be a vaccine and some better medical management of this stupid little virus.

I've had hsv2GH for 14 years. I am single, was a recluse for years because of herpes, and am completely out of the closet and open about it now. If we stand together, we can face off against the social stigma. And that little virus is nothing when the stigma is ignored.

Glad to have you here.

      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.
