Hi Folks

Recommended Posts

bobmck

Just found your site so I thought I'd drop-in and say Hi and get to know you all a little better. I don't really need any support as I've had H for many years, I just feel a bit isolated so I'm looking forward to chatting with you soon and making some new H-mates.

Bob:p

Welcome,

I didn't know this site existed until recently. I have had herpes for 24 years and didn't think much of it since I caught if from my husband. However, we are getting a divorce and I needed some advice about how to approach the big wide world.

It's a great place and the more you participate the less isolated you will feel.

Keep in touch

Thanks for the welcome

Hi to Wholesome and Miss Hope

Don't laugh but I'm still trying to figure out how to use this site and what the difference is between a thread and a post!! LOL I guess it's an age thing.

Thanks for the welcome

Bob:D

      More confusion! So the results have come back for both of the partners that I've been with over the last 3-4 years and they are both negative for type 1 and type 2. Where do I go next? Any advice?

      please look through the forum in exact and careful detail and inform yourself of less than usual circumstances to cover yourself.

      auto inoculation is rare and it can happen. off objects is debated but some people claim it happens. some people have experienced it happens easily.

      so you know practice good hygiene. i personal think use a heated towel rail and make sure your towels are fully hot and dry. there were studies in the 80's showing it can live on towels for 75 hours. The herpes association say most experts agree it cannot be caught off a towel. That is most experts not all. Some people end up with it on their body and one has to wonder how? Towels I would guess.

      Things that tend to stay kinda wet or so on. cups are another one that fit that i think.

      I remember being at university once and being in the bathroom while a girl was on the phone to her friend.She thought she had a bite on her face but clear to me someone with herpes had kissed her on the cheek recently, it didnt look typical just her skin peeling. 

      I am not an expert though or a doctor so do your own research.

      Update: The creme that contains the tetrapodal zinc oxide still isn't available at Gorch Fock Apotheke Kiel. I called them today: same status as last year and they have no further information on when and if it will be available again.

      Lilian, the zinc acetate we are talking about here is different from the tetrapodal zinc oxide that you are mentioning. But thanks for the reminder. The ointment that contains the tetrapodal zinc oxide still isn't available at Gorch Fock Apotheke Kiel. I called them today: same status as last year and they have no further information on when and if it will be available again.

      I've had neg swabs but I am sure you'll get it. Follow the process. I haven't read the thread in exact detail, but if you have documentation of doctors mishandling your case when you get/ if you get a poss inform them in writing as well as the medical board I think.  Under diagnosis is as problematic as false pos and reducing transmission is good.
