Hey, I'm new here and haven;t really had much support since I found out a week ago. I called up a local support group in Richmond that was listed and tried to get info, but the person on the phone actually said that he had no idea what "HSV" was. Since I really can't seem to find much support, here I am.

I had called a local number listed on the internet for a support group that used to be in my area. When a girl answered and I asked if this was the Herpes support group I got a ..... "Excuse Me...." and I apologized for dialing the wrong number and hung up. She is going to get a lot more calls like mine and will be wondering if some friends are setting her up for jokes or something :)

Welcome to the 'club'

Was this the number you dialed (804) 358-6343?

There are also some national help lines:

National Herpes Hotline

(Counseling Line)

Tel: 1-919-361-8488

CDC National STD Hotline

Tel: 1-800-227-8922

And do a search in Yahoo groups. There are over 1500 groups with the word 'herpes' in their name.

And come to the Live Chat room, plenty of nice people have been coming there for support.

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.
