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!

      You’re on the right track for sure. Did you get a swab of the lesions? Have you had an IgG blood retest for HSV?

      I would like to hear from those who have genital hsv 1... I’m thinking that I have type 1 because the guy I believe gave it to me had cold sores.. or is this assumption wrong? What’s the chances of having type 2 from his cold sores?

      I am very sorry that you are feeling the way you do at this time.  I went through the full range of feelings and emotions you describe for more than 10X as long as you have (that's right over 30 years) .  I have no idea if what I am going to tell you will be of benefit but I have no doubt what soever that HSV2 has been eliminated from my life.    This happened several months ago.  How?  Through SCALAR ENERGY.  It is still hard for me believe at times that I am now free of it, but it's true. If you want to know more you should go to the website and read it all.  creativestrength.us  I have absolutely no connection to the good people at this site other than I am now totally well from the treatment (not expensive) and am telling my story in the hopes that the same will happen to them.
