Hi, and welcome. I am not sure whether your symptoms are related to a herpes diagnosis or not but I hope I can answer some of your questions, yes you can have hsv1 both orally and on the genitals, but would have to be infected at the same time, is what I was told. So you may have had oral hsv, but it wouldn't then develop into genital hsv later on. I have heard of other woman complain of an increase in bv, Uti's and yeast infections, and yes tailbone pain is possible. Sometimes people think a cold sore is something else (fever blister, pimple), or they just don't recall having one, but may have as a young child. I have not experienced these symptoms. I had a "classic" initial outbreak with obvious herpes lesions. I hope this helps somewhat. I can't say whether you have both oral and genital. Without a lesion, it's hard to say.
I know its just a patent application, but man that would be a dream come true "RNA guided eradication of herpesvirus simplex.." how about eradication of herpes simplex virus in first human patient, now that would be a news headline i would cry if i ever saw.. a man can dream..

AKs don't usually comes up that quickly and are more gritty rather than flaky...almost looks eczematous, you could try a little OTC hydrocortisone cream for a few days and see if it improves. ps i work in derm
