Scared And Sad

Recommended Posts

Guest LuLu May

So I just found out I have hvs2. I'm really scared about it cuz now I also have herpes whitlow. Hurts like hell. The sore is in my nail bed. I can't seem to get it to heal up. I also had two small bumps show up lower on the same finger. I'm scared of spreading it to other parts of my body. Does anyone else have whitlow?? I need some help understanding it. I can't stop crying. I could live with genital but with the whitlow, will I ever be able to touch my face again? Some advice please. LuLu May:sadfacetoday:

You are not alone!

Hey LuLu,

You are not alone. I can personally relate because, I too, have herpes whitlow.

As far as hsv-2, i got that too, but i will tell you this about herpes, it's only a skin condition like any other non life threatening one.

You are body will build antibodies after several OBs on your fingure and soon you will have less outbreak.

As far Hsv-2, same principle, antibodies will build to lower the frequency rate of OBs and having a healthy diet is your ammo.

You too can fight herpes just like the rest of us.

P.S.

We have a live chatroom for anyone to come in, share their thoughts and have support.

I'm so glad to hear someone else with the same thing!! What do you do about not spreading it to the rest of your body? I've read some web stuff where mom's wear gloves all the time. Can I spread it even if it's not broke out? I'm scared I'm gonna get it in my eye since us girls wear makeup and all. Anything you can tell me that has made it better or heal faster? :wavey:

Just to be on the safe side, i just use my right hand more to wash my face, not really a big deal.

Only time anything can happen is during viral shedding, but it depends. I wouldn't worry too much about it. Is it your right or left finger?

      I have had a monogamous relationship for the last 6 years.  I did not have Herpes before the relationship.  My partner recently had an outbreak on the buttocks and was diagnosed with HSV2 about 2 months ago.  She said it was the first outbreak She had ever had. She has been taking valacyclovir for the last 2 months and we were intimate for the first time in about 4 months about a week ago.  Now I have an outbreak on my upper lip.  I read that this is not impossible, but rare. I wanted to ask others opinions on how HSV2 works, as I cannot help but find the situation really strange.  I totally understand that HSV2 can lie dormant for years, displaying no symptoms.  My partner says She has not been unfaithful, and I decided to believe her.  However, with this outbreak, a new doubt crept in, as I think it's really odd I would get an outbreak a week after being intimate, knowing I didn't have this before our relationship. I would appreciate hearing if this is possible, I love my partner and can't bear the doubt, but also don't want to feel I might be being blind.

      Hello, Im in the UK and have recently been diagnosed with herpes 2.  I am still coming to terms with it but i am keen to consider the stigma surrounding herpes.   If you don't mind.... would you tell me if you have told many people you have it?  What was their reaction?  Thanks guys x

      Hi Guys! I am newly diagnosed with HSV-2 and its the 7th day and my 1st outbreak is over. One week before the diagnosis I was at the prime of my life and the news gave me depression and I wanted to commit suicide knowing that I have a stigmatized NO CURE DISEASE. After a lot of research online I came across the combination herpes cure that I need to try. I have already chatted the support and they are quite informing in their responses about the 4-6 months protocol. Anybody who has tried it kindly share your sentiments and I will appreciate the insights... I feel pity for my life dear God why me please...

      Hi Guy! I am also two weeks into my first outbreak. This has made me do a lot of research for a permanent cure. I have seen Synergy Pharmaceuticals from Australia selling the combination herpes cure. Has anyone come across this? Does it look legit?

      I do pick them and pop them a lot so I think I’m just making it worse! Do they look like herpes to you though ?
