herpes sore on inside of vagina

Recommended Posts

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.

      So the hsv2 did not show up on the blood test, only the hsv 1, I never get cold sores so I would imagine I have been a carrier for a while. I saw two Doctors and both thought it was a yeast infection but the meds did not work so I asked about the blood work and swab culture for herpes. I never had blisters, just painful concave sores and lots of swelling and pain. What is PCR? I think it was a swab culture but I have not seen my lab results yet.  I have been in a relationship for the last  14 weeks, we used condoms at first but stopped awhile ago.  I did have unprotected sex accidentally with someone the week before that so 15 weeks ago. It was casual and I'm not really sure how to even get a hold of him.  So it is possible the exposure could have come from him. My current boyfriend has only had one other sexual partner in the last year. I have no idea where this came from. Thank you for your response. I will deffinitely check out the forums on natural things I can do.

      I wouldn't jump to conclusions but herpes is a posibility. Herpes cannot be positively diagnosed visually. There are othwr condition that produce similar symptoms. Go to the Doctor and have tje blisters swabbws within 48 hrs. If they dry up and you swab you may get a false negative. Take a  blood test in 12 weeks

      Wow, sorry this sounds pretty crappy. I too have been recently seen because of an outbreak. I wouldn't care abo It having this but, my love of my life was gone for 6 months and  now wants me back. What do i do?? Don't know what to say to tell him. Will go on supporessincd therapy.  To be honest. Sounds like he has something anyway. The o.b doesn't have to present. Some may not have an o.b because they have a good immune system. I am proud of you for getting tested to begin with. He may be positive and  may never test for fear of the knowing he has it. The tingling in the face is yes shedding. I get that and then get one on my nose. It sucks. Sorry to hear about your problem with all this. I am here to listen. I am deeply depressed and at a major low but, talking to many here will help.

      No, no oral. I kissed him,gave him oral and grinded on his part. The Dr swabbed my cervix, not the sores. I had a bad burning sensation, red area, and then i got red pimple like sores That popped up on the 11th the pain and itch are finally going away. I have been on acyclovir 400 mg 3 times a day since the 11th.  I had my rectal Area a few days ago pop up with a bunch of white pustukes that hurt like hell. He had a cut on his lip which I  now think he was having an outbreak.

      The positive hsv1 blood test means you probably have oral hsv1 from childhood. Do you know what the value was for the blood test for hsv2? The positive swab may mean you recently got infected with hsv2. What kind of swab was it? culture or PCR? What symptoms did you have that was swabbed? Do you have any estimate of when you would have been exposed with the virus? any days when you had a new partner or unprotected sex? You might want to wait at least 12 weeks, ideally 16 weeks (and in rare cases up to 24 weeks) to get another IgG blood test done for confirmation about hsv2. In the meanwhile, if it is definitely hsv2, you're right, valtrex is most effective if taken as soon as symptoms start, no more than a day after symptoms start. Your body will adjust with time and you will likely not need to take it all your life, although that are people who take valtrex daily and do just fine. It all depends on how well your immune system can keep the virus in check. Do you ever get cold sores on your lips? If you don't, inspite of having oral hsv1, your immune system has learnt to keep hsv1 in check, and will eventually learn to do the same for hsv2. There are many natural alternatives, please read through the natural remedies section on this forum, it's a good place to start. No 2 people are same when it comes to natural remedies (or even valtrex for that matter) so you'll need to experiment and see what works best for you. By the way, the fist outbreak is the worst, so it's possible you may not even have another outbreak or may have outbreaks very rarely. The first year is usually the most outbreaks. Good luck, and let us know if you have more questions.
