what is a secondary outbreak?

Recommended Posts

devastatedbythis

I keep hearing this term but do not understand it. I have never had an initial OB like other people have just only 1 blister that goes away in less than a week. Right now I am having all kinds of symptoms but I think it is because I keep thinking about this there are no blisters just itching and burning no leaking or anything like that. It actually feels like a yeast infection but I have never had one of those outside of babies and antibiotics. By the way can anyone tell me if herpes testing is part of obsterics when you are pregnant? Thanks in advance

Have you seen a doctor?

From what you describe, it does not sound like herpes.

thank you so much for responding to my post takes a while to get responses here. My ex husband came back Positive for HSV1 and 2 and he is the only one I have slept with since our divorce. I have had blisters before but only one and thought it was rubbing from my pantyliners where is horrible but you may be right there are no blisters and I have been using monistat 3 and it is feeling better. I should get tested but I figure if my ex came back positive then I must be also.

Hi devestatedbythis,

The forum tends to slow way down over the weekend. Try not to get discouraged ...it usually picks up the begining of the week. ;)

      I to have one outbreak after another. Never been tested but I know I have it . I would love advice on how to help with lesions on my labia.  Those hurt the worst and last the longest .  I have found if I take a pin and pop the ones on the regular skin and cover them with coconut oil salt scrub ,it drys them up and almost gone immediately and dont spread near as bad .  As I said I have lesions now and I cant seem to make them better . They hurt so bad .   I am new to this and have no idea how I got it. Been with the same person for years .

      I jus recently found out I have hsv. The first test came back negative they said it was jock itch but I had another lil spot pop up in the crease of my leg an that came back positive. I was so broken at that moment. That someone couldn’t have told me so we could have took actions to prevent me from getting it. I understand well all have it but some people’s is active an some people’s aren’t. I have some questions tho. Ever since I have been diagnosed I have been getting these lil spots poppin up on my legs knuckles an other places that itch tremendously bad idk if it’s bc I’m overly paranoid bc I’ve found out I have this or if there is something else wrong w me   I’m embarrassed to go to the doc about it this has really put me into a deep depression an I found this site hoping to get answers an support on how to deal with this I was praying that maybe this was all a bad dream but unfortunately I was wrong. Please help

      Same thing happened to me not long after having unprotected sex.  I have not tested positive for HSV, but I experience what you are in that area

      Diagnosed a year ago. Tried suppression therapy to no avail. Dr prescribed 500mg Valtrex increased to 1000g no help. Two HIV test negative. The worst experience ever. Tried oil of oregano, olive leaf extract, lysine, Multi vitamin. Just read because I’m peri menopausal it might be hormones. Outbreaks are constant hsv 2.  If anyone can can relate, I’m pleading for insight.
