Mild HSV2?

Recommended Posts


Hello everyone,

I am new here and just found out that I have HSV2 last month. My first symtoms included the following: itching at he lower part of my vaginal opening (Not crazy itching but some itching), around day 4 of this itching I placed a mirror to take a better look and noticed two very small fine cuts in that area (the cuts did'nt hurt with contact of soap or urine). The cuts were so small they were not easy to look at. I immediately began researching online and to my surprise, herpies can present itself in tiny lessions. I immediately went to my doc and she swabbed the lessions since I read this is where its easiest to diagnose. I had some blood work done as well. My doc gave me some HSV2 medicine and I took some of the pills but the lessions went away very soon about 4 days after they appeared and so did the itching in about a total of 2 weeks. The symptoms were never out of control, it was apparent something was wrong since I really pay attention to my health. I live a healthy life, I work out and take supplements (I'm big on aminoacid intake), so ofcourse I just started Lysine.

I know who infected me, my husband did. We were separated about 3 yrs. and decided to work out our marriage about a year ago. We have been together since and are only sexually active with eachother. He has an idea how he became infected (Drugs, alcohol, party party). Anyways, the same time I had these signs he had symptoms too. His symptoms were the same but more irritating from what he has shared with me. It seems it has cleared up and then comes back. I dont know if its related to him working 20 hrs. a day and not resting, being stressed out, drinks alcohol on the weekends and smokes cigarettes all day long. I don't know.

Well I just wanted to share my story and I'm at least happy that its not as severe and that I don't have anything else.

      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.
