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.

      @_Garden_girl You got to do what you need to do! It does sound like he knew he had it and took no precautions at all to protect you and that's very very fucked up! You have every right to be mad as hell..If he knew that he had it then it really is nothing short of sexual abuse to lie and not wear a condom. In my opinion, what he did is worse than stealthing as you did not consent to the risk of hsv (again, if he knew he had it). You do sound very level-headed and I would certainly encourage you to be composed. As you said, confronting him isn't going to change your diagnosis, but it may prevent it from happening to someone else...and more importantly, people who do bad things need to be held accountable and he should know what he did was wrong.  I rambled a bit...but say what you need to in order to move-on.  I'm sorry you're in this situation. You'll be fine

      Yeah, we're about to kill ourselves as our physical and emotional pain torture us every day while solution could be close... It's all about money after all and our governments don't care. Frustrating! http://aurx.com/2016/10/05/hello-world/

      The igG used to be very suspect and still seems to get it wrong many times. Certainly the survey parts are almost completely unreliable. Never said 1% prevalence...I'm not going to guess.. My point on this thread is only that it's silly to think that prevalence can be so high (on this thread some suggest everyone has genital hsv) and yet transmission so low (it's suggested transmission can be as low as 1% a year above).  They don't want to misestimate. Welcome to humanity where much is uncertain and many errors are made! We all can.

      My quality of life has been demolished. We now have to bear through the rest of our life with no prospect of escaping it. Every morning the first thing I think about is HSV, as I feel burning aching pain. It robs you of laughter, love, motivation,and any hope for a better future to work towards. Everything I do now, I'm teased of what I could have enjoyed if I didn't have this.

      Extremely unlikely that he would become infected from the activity you describe. Essentially zero chance. 
    • WilsoInAus
      Makes no sense. The studies are as the studies do. What flawed test are you talking about? What point are you making. The statistics are reliable and interpretable. If you want to believe that only 1% of people have HSV or whatever it is you're trying to say, fine, say it and move on. Why on god's earth would anyone want to misestimate the prevalence of any disease? Schoolboy ignoramus stuff mate - you can do better.
