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.

      Sorry I don't understand... is there an issue to suggest he might not go with the theravax now?  
    • staypositiv3
      I think everyone (who has replied so far) agrees the symptoms described doesn't seem herpes related but as far as protecting yourself, I don't think there's anything wrong with being careful in terms of sharing personal things regardless.  You can catch any virus from doing that

      Please god let this theravax be available.

      This is how stigma is created though, when 'anecdotal' evidence is treated as clinical evidence. It was the same when HIV first appeared. It creates un-necessary fear and stigma and for no good reason.

      Legend. Thank you. This actually helped me.. at least for the moment.. i do feel gross amd disgusting. I've so far talked to 1 friend which is who I think I got it from and if I did he has no clue he has it and if not.. well he does now.. I just got told last night I had it. I had the first sore pop up a few days or weeks or so after I was with this friend and not too long after that I felt I was maybe getting the flu. I didn't think anything of it but that was back in July and about a week or 2 ago another sore came up so I went to the er  and they said it looked like herpes but it wasn't sore so they didn't think it was but anyways called last night and said I was positive.. I'm having a hard time with it. I been with my boyfriend a year in Oct and he been locked up since December.. he has made comment that he didn't care if I caught anythk g he still wants me.. he knows I cheated... which is why I feel more worse about it cause I got it I think when I cheated.. which I never cheat.. just lonely with him being away so long.. well I haven't been able to talk to my Bf yet but I'm hoping he meant what he said.. also his friend has herpes which is how I met him and they had shared girls before so I'm wondering if maybe I got it from him.. but I don't remember having a sore till this past july.. I just dunno. I'm just so confused and feel like a whore

      There's numerous anecdotal evidence.  I don't understand why you think HSV is so picky about how it's transmitted.  Especially if the medium is favorable for its preservation and passing.

      I just got told earlier tonight that I hard herpes.. type 2.. and i feel gross and worthless.. not at all sure how to handle this or how I will deal with it. I been with my boyfriend a year and he has been gone a few months (locked up) song few months and I don't even know when I got this.. only time I'm thinking was back in July I was spending ti.e with My Friend and cheated then not to long after that I noticed a sore.. it.went away finally and about 2 weeks later another one came up which it's still here so went to the Dr Thursday and called today and told me that.. doesn't hurt or nothing don't bother me at all actually. And when I read about other people they say how painful it is.. so I'm just really confused bout it all

      HPV 1 & 2 is human papilloma virus type 1 and 2. In other words, you tested positive for genital warts, not herpes. She should have explained that to you, but HPV (genital warts) is the most common STD you can get.
    • WilsoInAus
      The only conclusion you can reach is that you have an oral HSV-1 infection just like 70% of the population. This is herpes, but your doctor is probably referring to genital herpes. Only a positive HSV-2 outcome on your test would give rise to concerns that you had genital herpes. The swab looks to have been negative. Your doctor is spot on.
