2nd OB in 3 weeks

Recommended Posts

soashamed30

I had an OB about 2 weeks ago and it was horrible. I got a cold sore on my lip that made me look and feel awful. Finally that cleared up after a freaking week. Then Friday just passed I felt the tingling and yep, my lip started swelling, I was having another OB. How can this be possible?

I have been dealing with this disease for 9 years now. I would usually get 1 OB a year, and I never had any cold sore's or anything. Then out the blue I get an OB, a bad looking cold sore on my lip, and now another OB. My right hand below my thumb I feel some bumps, tingling and itching and I am wondering is that associated with my OB? Has anyone had anything like their hands to break out, if so how did they treat it? My cousin said I had shingles and she was making a joke about it, but now I'm starting to wonder.

Hello soashamed

I have genital herpes and i get OBs on the fingers of my right hand, they usually appear close to the knuckle and can spread downward or upwards.

Is it possible that you could have touched the coldsore and infected your finger? Im not really up on coldsores.

Good luck anyways...

You probably just been under a lot of stress lately. Acyclovir works fine if you use as soon as first sore appears. Don't touch. Just let it be and it goes away within few days. There is nothing ugly about it. It's all in your mind. Sometimes people have them, and I don't even notice the sore. You just think that people will be noticing and that makes you feel nervous and stressed more, therefore more sores. Take care.

      Almost certainly that is not herpes. There are a number of diseases that can cause your symptoms, not all of them infectious. If you haven't done so already, go see a doctor as soon as you can.

      Seems likely that you had an asymptomatic infection and now you are having very mild recurrences. Asymptomatic infection is by far the most common case, in particular for HSV1 positive people. It could be a genital reinfection with HSV1, unlikely, or most likely a new HSV2 infection, there is no way to tell without a blood test. It's been long enough for an IGG test but don't bother testing for HSV1, you can already assume you are positive and have been for most of your life. I don't know about how it is where you live, but where I live I don't need to ask any doctor to get tested, I can just go into a clinical lab and order the test for €40. If your test returns negative for HSV2, don't worry about putting her at any risk regarding HSV1, she will have the same risk from anyone else. Acyclovir cream won't do any good, you should stop it (it increases the risk of getting an acyclovir resistant strain). Otherwise, your recurrences are so mild and far apart that it isn't worth it to do any treatment for now, so don't be scared about your health, chances are it'll get better with time. AND ALWAYS WEAR A CONDOM

      Doing a little research, it seems that Amenamevir  and Pritelivir are definitely not chemically identical. How similar are these drugs really?

      I have been working out regularly after being diagnosed in may with ghsv1.  First 3 weeks were awful but haven’t had any OB, symptoms at all since.  I also haven’t been eating as healthy as I should be.  Feel like I never had it. Hope it stays this way.  I think working out helps.  Just my view so far.

      Based on current HIV treatment, I would imagine they will create a one-pill combo of pritelivir and valtrex and sell it as a daily pill. But once a week pritelivir + valtrex might also work in the meantime.
