Hello everyone

i just recently turned 20 and was 19 when I was diagnosed with "H" at the beginning of August. It is now January and it still has not gone away. During August/September i had brown spots on my hands and feet, and i have this mysterious rash that keeps appearing on the inside of my leg that comes and goes. I keep reading online and the symptoms ive had make me think i have Syphilis. My doctor told me that it was very rare and its not possible id have it. When i left the office they told me if there were any problems with my bloodtest they would call me, so i have not seen the bloodtest because i figured i have "H" and i jus got too deal with it and if i didnt have it they would have called me. Do you think i should go back in and maybe get reevaluated? Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Thank you

Yes, and call and ask for your results, it is your health, syphilis can take a while to show up in tests, also, the fact that you have herpes doesn't mean that the rash isn't something els, Syphilis is cureable, quit suffering and go back tot he Dr. or see a different Dr. please keep us informed and come join in the chat, we are a friendly group. we help eachother.

"Brown spots on your hands and feet" doesn't sound much like herpes to me!!!

And the "mysterious rash" on the inside of your leg could be anything.

The worst thing you can do is self-diagnose on the Internet. That and making the kind of assumptions that you're making here. See a doctor again and ask to be given the results of any tests, whatever those results may be. That's the only way you'll get a reliable diagnosis.

Thank you both. I know i shouldnt self diagnose myself but some symptoms ive had just dont match with the the usually happening of the "H". I know neither of you are doctors but if i first brokeout in augest shouldnt it have gone away by now?

No, I'm not a doctor - just an interested (and I like to think reasonably well-informed) layman.

If you've had whatever it is constantly since August, then it's definitely not herpes. Even without meds, a herpes OB is self-limiting and will clear up in 2 to 3 weeks (usually much faster if you take meds).

As I said before, the brown spots you describe above sound very untypical for herpes. I've never heard of any herpes symptoms like that before, or in those locations.

The "mysterious rash" on your leg may be herpes. Or it may not be. There's really no way to tell unless you have a proper medical check-up. Constantly speculating over the Internet is pointless - get yourself off to see a doctor.

      Yes and I have received quite a number of complaints about you too... people wondering why you haven’t been banned for such flagrant lying. Anyways, it matters not. Readers can see what is the truth, and truth is all that matters.

      @WilsoInAus talking to you is like talking to the wall, follow your path and do not give importance to my comments and received complaints from other users of how you judge who has problems with the community of hsv are you, doctors are too wrong do not know everything and you who have no medical and academic training will judge a doctor who with a blood test and a culture diagnosed me with hsv-1 (I'll tell you a phrase that a doctor told me you're not going to judge my diagnoses that's why I I left the mother 8 years studying) _______________________ hablar contigo es como hablar con la pared siga su camino y no le dé importancia a mis comentarios e recibido quejas tuyas de otros usuarios de como los juzgas el que tiene problemas con la comunidad de hsv eres tú, los médicos se equivocan demasiado no lo saben todo y tu que no tienes ninguna formación médica y académica va a juzgar un médico que con un examen de sangre y un cultivo me diagnostico hsv-1 ( te diré una frase que un médico me dijo tu no vas a juzgar mis diagnósticos por eso me partí la madre 8 años estudiando)

      No I’m sorry that is not the case. You have lied and deceived to feed your own paranoia. That is unacceptable behaviour anywhere, particularly this behaviour. Our readers understand perfectly. It’s time to reflect upon this atrocious behaviour. Please comeback when you’re prepared to be mature. I’m sorry no one has been able to help you overcome your psychological problems regarding herpes.

      lo que tú no entiendes es que no todos tienen los mismos síntomas y los mismos brotes hay gente que no tiene síntomas y sabe brotes recurrentes mucha gente tiene síntomas sin brotes visibles heno asintomáticos y sintomáticos muchos doctores confunden un brote de hsv a una espinilla (acné ) y viceversa _______________________ @WilsoInAus what you do not understand is that not everyone has the same symptoms or the same outbreaks there are people who do not have symptoms and get recurring outbreaks many people have symptoms without visible outbreaks there are asymptomatic and symptomatic many doctors confuse an outbreak of hsv to a pimple (acne) ) and vice versa

      @WilsoInAus estas muy mal, mi  diagnostico de hsv fue sólo por escuchar mis síntomas sin pruebas de sangre eso fue a los 20 días la prueba de sangre fue casi al cumplir un mes además todos las personas son diferentes el hsv no dura mucho en infectar células epiteliales en muchos casos a los 15 días de la infección ya puedes obtener anticuerpos hay gente que dura meses hay gente que dura menos de un mes porque tiene que ser igual para todos? _____________________ you are very bad, my diagnosis of hsv was just by hearing my symptoms without blood tests that was 20 days after the blood test was almost one month later all the people are different the hsv does not last long in infecting epithelial cells in many cases after 15 days of infection and you can get antibodies there are people who last for months there are people who last less than a month because it has to be the same for everyone?
