herpes sore on inside of vagina

7 posts in this topic

What I thought to be an allergic reaction to soap turned out to be a herpes sore. It is right on the inside of my vagina and it does not burn nor is there an itchy feeling or burning feeling, it just hurts a little somtimes, on a scale of 1-10 it is a 1 and if I take asprin it goes away and it feels a tiny bit swollen down there ( well I think so anyways) .

I thought that if you had a herpes sore it caused itching, burning and soreness?

How long do these usually last? Also is it normal to cause flu like symptoms?

Sorry if this is a little to much info :p

No to people have the same feelings with the sores. Thats one thing that drive me nuts about herpes. There is no rhyme or reason to it, no consistency, no two ob's are the same. there are no time frames either, everyone is different. As for the symptoms, I call it "flu lite"--all the achy shit, but no vomiting or runs. Hope this helps

Hey I'm from VA too! yes its usually normal to have flu-like symptoms initially. I suggest taking something for the pain like ibuprofen and make sure you are eating even if its just soup because you need to build up your immune system. I think the feeling lasts about 10 days maybe. I know it all depends on the person. I wish you the best and hope you get better soon.

ETA: Try soaking in epsom salts that should help with the sores.

Hi ChrissyLynn87...I can't speak for inner-vaginal OB's but the premise should be the same. I take 2000mg Lysine daily, Vit C and Orgeanol Oil, multivitamin. My OBs are not bad anymore, I still get all the symptoms but I have typically 1 day of warning symptoms, 1 day of developing blisters, 1 day of open blister and 2 days of healing.

Also, your little cold and period has reduced your immune system enough to trigger your OB (most likely). Anyway, food for thought.

      You are talking about science, and we don't need believers in science. The skepticism is healthy. Whoever you are, we want you to succeed. When you start your campaign, I will donate, and I also volunteer my services as a software developer pro bono, though I'm not sure how much use you have for that. Understand that most members of this forum are medical laymen — myself included — and although your posts sound convincing, it'd be unwise for any of us to inject mystery fluid into our spines because an anonymous Internet user told us to.

      I'M THINKING THE HYDROCORTISOL IS YOUR MAIN ISSUE. Just my opinion.

      Thanks Free73!

      Agreed! So, how do we go from anonymity to working as a group? Maybe we can contact those we are friends with outside of the hive. Or, divide those interested by location. Or create another website.

      I agree with both replies. I too had a mini break down, and cried all day for days. But I started to research like crazy and it really did help me come to terms with my diagnosis. Not only that but it made me feel like I had some control over it. You will get there.  Give yourself time and keep coming back to this site, it is full of great advice and support. I'm sorry you are going through this.

      @JBnATL, thanks for the clarification. That's great to know. I'll almost certainly reach out to her. @Sanguine108, I have been tracking my food intake carefully for a couple of months in MyFitnessPal.  Though my nutrition isn't optimized for my current goals, I don't think there are any smoking guns in there wrt to this.. @Free73, thank you!  Great information. I think you've hit on several major points.  The hydrocortisone, in combination with the major change and 'shock' to the system, as well as general 'stress', has compromised my immune system, or at least pissed-off the HSV..  I guess it's not uncommon to see an increase in outbreaks during periods of stress and change to the body such as these.. My exercise routine is evolving as I'm still a beginner. I started in July and have been averaging ~4 workouts a week, ~100x10 sets,reps/wk.. I've been hampered lately by a strained pec minor a week or so ago which has impacted most of my upper-body work. Also, my body probably sees the additional energy demand as even more stressful due to my adrenal/RT3 issues and reduced caloric intake.  I set my levels in MFP and Garmin Connect about as low as they would let me and I'm still almost always way under.. Since you've been working out all along, what do you think has caused you increased outbreaks?

      Well someone's gotta get this train rolling... we can talk all we want but if the money isn't collected then nothing gets done. As it stands, no one is even working on what we need specifically. Everyone is trying to cure eye diseases, which are important, but I think a more pertinent concern is genital hsv. So, unless we get moving with this, we're gonna be stuck with it for life. Even the groups that ARE working on it, have other priorities and you can see it on their pipelines.

      We all go through storms in life. Some more difficult than others, I have been through quite a few them including H.  During these storms don't focus on the darkness but focus on the light guiding our path. While painful I believe we come out better at the end. And yes I am overwhelmed by the power of the light. not the darkness.

      I think an initial breakdown is normal to an extent I think most of us go through a mini version. I know I did, but I'm a curious person by nature I like to investigate and research things that I know little about. I became slightly obsessed with HSV 2 and spent hours a day on my phone researching then clearing my browser history for added security lol. But I quickly learned how common it is and what it really is and that helped me accept it and begin to move forward. I suggest you do as much research as possible on this virus to ease your mind and help you better understand it.
