Found out less than a week ago

I have had blisters for several years but only when I have masturbated or worn panty liners especially the short ones so I only wear extra long ones. The masturbation has stopped because of it. That is what I thought it was.

I have been divorced for four years but have been having sex with my ex and noone else. He got a sore a few weeks after I had a small blister but his was huge and it broke open in less that 24 hours; he thought it was irritation from his pants. I told him to go to the doctor because it was huge and nasty looking well he had a type specific blood test and it came back positive for both 1 and 2 and has never had a cold sore his whole life.

When he told me I almost fainted, couldnt sleep, have not been able to study and have been feeling "symptoms" ever since. He looked down there yesterday and nothing. I figure since he has it I must have it. We think we must have had if for years because it has only been us for years but when we were younger we slept with other people when we broke up so I am not even mad at him. He thought I would have lost my temper but I am too worn to argue. I feel like it is over and we should remarry since I would never want anyone else to know about this. I have never been diagnosed but I must have it because of the blisters and it is always only 1 and it hurts but neosporin always makes it heal quickly. I feel like my life is over no man is going to want to ever touch me and the sad part is I have tried so hard to live my life right. I cant wait for this year to be over it was really a tough one from Jan 1st.

I am so sorry you are feelingthis way.....

Do NOT remarry this man for the sole reason that you have Herpes....(If you do indeed have it) You really need to get tested, to make certain! Go to a different city, if you are embarressed......

I don't think that it is true, as far as what you are saying that noone will want you......Reading up and researching is a MUST for this virus....As I have learned that 80% of Americans have this virus, but most do not know because they are never tested for it, as they have no symptoms......

If you and him truly love each other, then by all means...re-marry,,,,,But PLEASE do NOT do it just because of the virus......

If you need someone to talk to, I am here....I was also recently diagnosed and I have never had symptoms and have been married to the same man and have not had sex with another person in over 9 years....I also thought, it couldn't happen to me.....but unfortunatly, it did.....and that is why I am here....

      It doesnt really mean much yet. They still dont know if the herpes is taking advantage of a diseased brain or causing the disease. Furthermore, there is evidence that Alzheimer's might be caused by oral spirochete disease and even Lyme. Many of you could have oral Spirochetes but the Lyme and is less likely. https://globallymealliance.org/pathogen-cause-alzheimers-disease/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5008232/ https://newsblog.drexel.edu/2016/02/10/do-infections-cause-alzheimers-disease/   Of course it could be both! Maybe having hsv-1 and oral spirochetes quadruples the risk.  In my opinion the spirochete theory sounds more likely and its hard to dismiss neurosurgeons and caretakers getting Alzheimers from a disease that was previously thought to be non contagious. I'd worry more about Spirochetes.

      I wonder if people in the military are tested for hsv, because the general public isn’t. You have to specifically ask for it and many doctors don’t even see the point because it’s “so common”. It’s very possible he has it and has no symptoms or very mild random symptoms. Sorry to hear what you’re dealing with. It seems like women’s symptoms are worse than men’s.

      No that’s not the issue at all. The absolute vast majority of nerve pain is not caused by herpes. Hence it cannot be used to reverse engineer a diagnosis of herpes. That is exceptinally dangerous and we must do all we can encourage proper diagnosis.

      Do you have an APOE4 gene? I do. I also have HSV-2, which so far hasn't been linked to dementia. Itzhaki previously found that cold sores occur more frequently in those who carry a gene variant that confers increased risk of Alzheimer’s called APOE-ε4. "Our theory is that in APOE-ε4 carriers, reactivation is more frequent or more harmful in HSV1-infected brain cells, which as a result accumulate damage that culminates in development of Alzheimer's," she said.

      So basically, if you carry the APOE4 gene and have oral HSV-1, you chances of dementia could be quite high. But if you have APOE4, your chances of dementia were higher already. Look, 80% of the population has HSV-1. 80% of the population does not get dementia. You also seem to skip over the fact that antiviral treatment can reduce the increased chances of dementia to almost nothing. "The striking results include evidence that the risk of senile dementia is much greater in those who are infected with HSV, and that anti-herpes antiviral treatment causes a dramatic decrease in number of those subjects severely affected by HSV1 who later develop dementia," Itzhaki said. The data from Taiwan only applies to the rare severe HSV1 or VZV infections. The next step will be to study dementia rates amongst people with mild HSV1 infections, including herpes labialis or mild genital herpes. "Considering that over 150 publications strongly support an HSV1 role in Alzheimer's, these Taiwan findings greatly justify usage of antiherpes antivirals - which are safe and well-tolerated - to treat Alzheimer's disease,” Itzhaki said."They also incentivize development of an HSV1 vaccine, which would likely be the most effective treatment." I think it behooves you to do your research and actually read the articles you are posting before pulling the alarm and trying to scare people.
