Hi.

I just got some test results from my Doc, and it was a positive to herpes- on my lower back/ upper buttocks.

This is so weird.

Is this called "genital" herpes?

How did I get it, especially on the location of my body.

Any answers would be great.

"Genital" herpes can appear anywhere covered by boxer shorts. Herpes does usually prefer to shed and OB in the same spot, though.

Keep hanging around here for support, Ok?

Could be Herpes Gladiatorum

Which is another form of herpes most commonly associated with wrestlers. It is usually caused by the HSV1 virus which is the more milder form of herpes.

Read as much as you can about the virus. You will see that for the most part, this is a pretty harmless virus.

Good luck!

JB

      It’s really scary and depressing to find out you have this virus. When I found out, last Wednesday, I went through the emotions and the pain of a severe breakout (8 in total, all in separate spots). Today, almost a week later, I can finally move without wanting to scream. My best friends, during this time, were my detachable shower head, Naproxen, and Lidocaine 5% cream. (If you do not have a detachable shower head I recommend one or get a Peri Bottle. They help for keeping clean and for pain relief) Just as everyone here, we want this to be over with. The pain to go away. To feel “normal” again. I’ve researched and read everything I could get ahold of. Then I read about Monolaurin. It's a substance that's derived from lauric acid that is found in coconut oil and human breast milk. It supposedly helps immensely with our virus from hell!  I read that this woman started using it and she hasn’t had a break out in 2 years AND when she does feel one coming on she doubles up on her dose and BOOM, it’s gone! I ordered some off of Amazon and can’t wait for it to get here! What can it hurt, right? Seriously, what do we have to lose (besides a breakout, hopefully!) Here’s some info if you have never heard of it and want to know more. Good luck and keep your head up!   https://www.verywellhealth.com/the-benefits-of-monolaurin-89482

      To be fair it would be hard to prove, you could have an oral infection for years before

      No they will stay anonymous due to not wanting them to be outed no doubt. That's if anything goes further cause it will be hard to prove damages hsv wise surely.

      I am doing this, but also taking other supplements at the same time. I drink a ton of water so it's easy to have lemon water on hand. I am on week 2 now.
