Constant Burning: Please Help!

9 posts in this topic

I was correctly diagnosed with "H" 4/2009. I had several bad outbreaks during the months after being diagnosed. In September I went to a different doctor and was put on suppressive therapy. I have not had any oubreaks since then.

The problem I'm having now is a constant burn. It feels like it is right inside the opening of my penis. It does not burn when I urinate, but afterwards and all during the day. I have gone to my doctor with this complaint. They take a urine sample and there is no virus showing in the results. I have even gone to a urologist and had a camera insereted and nothing showed up.

If anybody can give me some advice. I would really appreciate it. I would really like to feel normal again(if that is possible).

hmmm I wonder if this is similar to what I've been experiencing??

I was diagnosed with HSV-1 genitally last summer; haven't had an outbreak since then (that I'm aware of) but regularly feel pain around the area of the initial outbreak.

The pain isn't that bad, it's more of a general ache of sorts - I generally notice it after a lot of intense sex so I tend to dismiss it as a well-deserved 'muscle' ache but DO notice that it is right in the area of my initial outbreak...

Wish I had more of a scientific reply for you but thought you might appreciate any kind of input...

You can try aloe.

When I get really bad itching or burning down there, a dab of aloe gel (like for after you've been sunburned, but make sure the only ingredient is the aloe) helps. It might sting, but more often than not it just feels cold and relieving.

I've read somewhere that aloe helps with herpes outbreaks too, here's a link to a research study:

heyy, i get that too, for the last almost 5 months since i contracted the virus i've have this tingling feeling every day and its the most uncomfortable feeling in the world :( and hurts as well, but no sores since the primary outbreak. I took the valtrex to get rid of the sores and tried the suppressive therapy for a month and nothing helped :( If you find anything out or anything that helps you keep us updated pleaassee:)

I experienced the same kind of symptoms and a naturalist told me to try super lysiene cream (I have ghsv1). Seems to work and get rid of the burning symptoms - it's good for itching around the area as well. It worked for me - hopefully it will work for others too! I haven't tried the aloe - think I'll pick up some of that and try it too!

I'm in the same boat. Visually diagnosed last July after unprocted oral (so GHSV1) and can't shake the pain and burning, tingling, and stabbing pains at site of initial 'outbreak'. Seen the urologist 4 times, numerous GP visits, trips to the GUM clinic, and enough pills to last me a lifetime. Absolutely no joy! Had 2 negative Igg blood tests, so not a clue what next step is.

I've also had the camera thing. Not nice, but not as bad as it sounds!

The burn is the worst

I was diagnosed yesterday with HS2. I got from my bf who has HS1 & gave me via oral sex. I'm no pain wimp, having autoimmune disorders and extensive back probs. But this burn is the absolute worst pain. Lukewarm baths help along with lidocaine cream. My doc called in RX so hope they work.

If boyfriend has only HSV1...

There is no way you could have got HSV2 from him.

HSV1 does not turn into HSV2 and vice versa.

      My Igg results for HSV 1 were >5.0  H (H meaning high) I dont understand yours:     IgG < 1:230 What were you tested for HSV 1 or 2...What was the range?  
    • WilsoInAus
      It is the other way around: IgG is the long term antibody and permanent for life (mostly) whereas IgM is short term (but can appear at times throughout your life as well). This the best interpretations are as follows: positive swab but negative IgG, IgM result irrelevant may be positive or negative... recent infection negative IgG, IgM result irrelevant may be positive or negative followed weeks later by a positive IgG... recent infection positive IgG, IgM irrelevant maybe positive or negative... most likely a longer term infection
    • WilsoInAus
      If there were multiple sores on 9 July and this is unlike anything you have had before, then there is little doubt that you were infected most likely on 2 July or a couple of days before that. March is simply too long prior to 9 July for that to be a realistic possibility. Now think back, was there oral sex involved on 2 July or the few days prior? If so, you will need to check that your swab was properly typed. Most cultures are not typed and just assumed to be HSV-2. Oral sex can result in the transmission of a partner's oral HSV-1 (cold sore) infection to your genitals. Does your partner have oral cold sores?
    • WilsoInAus
      It is a shame the culprit has not been identified, your doctor was pretty thorough in testing for micoplasma of which there are numerous that can cause these symptoms. The ongoing treatment of antibiotics is also therefore leaning toward this not being bacterial. Now the complicated part, is HSV-1 at play here? Now the complication is that the odds of having HSV-1 orally already from childhood exceed (by a factor of hundreds) the chances of experiencing just an outbreak of herpes inside your urethra from oral sex (as opposed to on your shaft for example). Hence the conclusion you need to reach just at this time is that you have had an oral HSV-1 for most of your life and do not recall any cold sores. If either of your parents have oral cold sores, your odds of having it given this information are nearing 100%. The added implication of this conclusion is that you, especially as a male, are immune from a genital HSV-1 infection! Thus the odds really remain strongly with another cause. It may be time to look more closely at kidney, bladder or prostate issues.

      All this constant talk about research. Give us something already

      I understand it's just crazy...I came clean and neither of them want me anymore like I am damaged goods. They both act like it's all my fault. And everything I read about it it either says that you have an outbreak 2 to 20 days after exposure or that it lays dormant and then you have an outbreak... I read the stress. And all this other stuff can cause you to have an outbreak. But I had a baby in July 2015 and my son's father was my only sexual contact for about 1.5 years. If one of them didn't give it to me then I don't understand why the stress of being pregnant being a single mom and having so many other life crisis not cause an outbreak until now.... I have really bad anxiety and I was taking medication for it and stress and all these issues that worried me why did not have an outbreak until now....just upset

      I dont know who gave it to me. My suspect says hes clean.  At the end of the day you cant change whats happened.  If the ex gets no symptoms he may believe hes clean.  You need to just focus on trying to accept it now. Its hard at first but in time it gets easier for most.  
    • Lisajd
      How long has it been since the infection and blood tests.  Usually it takes 12 weeks. Someone else will tell you re your igg.
