Second outbreak


Recommended Posts

Hey guys thought I would give you a insight into how I have been coping, my first ob was a nightmare I was pissing razorblades, haha when I first pulled back my foreskin I was wtf those look like mouth ulcers? right that's it down the docs I go :D

This was a month ago, I was given a course of Aciclovir 400MG 3x times a day for 5 days the sores eventually cleared and I was back to my normal self,

Ok So before my second outbreak decided to come up I experienced a tingling sensation in my balls, and presto had a peak downstairs the next few days and was like ok I'm flared up but this doesn't look to bad, I have had the 2nd outbreak now for just under a week, Ive got no pain whatsoever, no pain when I pee, just 1 sore has shown up and the odour has changed downstairs,

I'm taking the Aciclovir again and ive got a daily ritual of dipping the soldier in a cup of warm salted water which actually feels really good lol.

I'm eating Fruit and Veg like it's going out of fashion and giving my immune system a boost by intaking pure pomegranate juice. feeling ok no discomfort, no pain it just looks a bit unsightly.

In the new year I am going to be seeing my docotr and will be looking at treatment to help me when I am shedding the virus.

The only fear I have is passing this virus on to loved ones :(

Most people get it from someone who does not know they have it, not from someone who does know. Taking meds daily can cut the risk of transmission by 50%.

I have dated many non h women and have never passed it along.

Good luck!

If you take the acyclovir daily, and practice safe sex you should be ok as far as passing it along. for family members, you dont have to worry unless they touch your genitals.

      Okay.... makes sense.... I hope it is helping.  Again, I would ask about a Rx for valacyclovir instead of acyclovir.... valacyclovir gets more acyclovir into your system than taking straight acyclovir.

      Hi @Throwaway765 yes that all makes sense and you’ve pretty well reached the right conclusions except for a very significant fact!! You are right, receiving genital HSV-2 from oral sex is unheard of, just not feasible given how people have it and whether it actually sheds in infectious quantities or not. Safely rule this out. Now HSV-1; once you have this as you do orally, you have immunity against infection anywhere else on the body, it is also not feasible.  The symptoms you describe are also not related to herpes in the absence of lesions.

      Thanks for your response! I received unprotected oral 10 weeks ago and immediately after had stinging in my glans and weird nerve pain. I am positive for HSV1 due to cold sores I got as a child, but as recent as 9 weeks after this exposure have tested negative for HSV2.    im nervous that I may have acquired hsv1 again on my genitals since HSV2 is rarely acquired from oral sex and doesn’t shed hardly at all, but haven’t seen any sores yet. Just weird symptoms and this started recently in my buttcrack when I was taking antibiotics.   Any advice or perspective would be greatly appreciated. @WilsoInAus

      Hi @Throwaway765 and welcome. There is absolutely no concern over this being related to herpes. Something must be concerning you as to the possibility of herpes… what is it?
