Constant Redness

Recommended Posts


I'm getting really frustrated and somewhat concerned. I had my first GHSV-1 OB in April. From then until now I have had 3-4 mild OBs but constant redness in between. I have a red line that goes from the underside base of my penis all the way to the start of the head. It looks kind of like a cut sore but its a long red line. My Obs seem to go away but this line won't. I get no itchiness or swollen nodes or anything in between OBs just this line. Anyone have any symptoms like this? Or any idea as to what it could be? Iv'e been meaning to get into a dermatologist but I just havn't.

      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.
