Question about Blister- First Outbreak

Recommended Posts


Can someone help me understand whether this seems "normal" or not - understanding that normal is relative and there really is no such thing. I've had this genital ulcer since about 12/18 - the one that the doctor said didn't even look like herpes (which was why I was so surprised when the culture came back positive). It has stayed exactly the same this whole time - has never progressed to any kind of a blister or opened up. It doesn't seem to be changing in any way, and it certainly doesn't seem to be going away. It's been about 2 1/2 weeks now that I've had this. Does this seem right? Should I expect this thing to ever blister or will it just go away? Or is everyone just so different there is no one right answer to this question? Thanks for any help anyone can give on this.

I have heard of people's initial outbreak lasting over a month. You are right, there is no normal with this, but what you should find is that this initial outbreak will be your worst. As you get older and your body takes over, you should find your outbreaks coming farther apart and shorter in duration.

Good luck! I hope to see you in chat again soon.

      You’re on the right track for sure. Did you get a swab of the lesions? Have you had an IgG blood retest for HSV?

      I would like to hear from those who have genital hsv 1... I’m thinking that I have type 1 because the guy I believe gave it to me had cold sores.. or is this assumption wrong? What’s the chances of having type 2 from his cold sores?

      I am very sorry that you are feeling the way you do at this time.  I went through the full range of feelings and emotions you describe for more than 10X as long as you have (that's right over 30 years) .  I have no idea if what I am going to tell you will be of benefit but I have no doubt what soever that HSV2 has been eliminated from my life.    This happened several months ago.  How?  Through SCALAR ENERGY.  It is still hard for me believe at times that I am now free of it, but it's true. If you want to know more you should go to the website and read it all.  creativestrength.us  I have absolutely no connection to the good people at this site other than I am now totally well from the treatment (not expensive) and am telling my story in the hopes that the same will happen to them.
