utterly dumbfounded

I am very nervous right now, after having unprotected sex a couple weeks ago with a girl I barely knew, I honestly dont even know her name, I have a bump on the shaft of my penis. I also feel as though I have been sweating a lot more than normal at night, and my crotch has been itchy. I noticed a day or two after shaving, three or four red bumps which i passed off as ingrown hairs, because they were only around my upper pubic area. They were spread out, so I thought nothing of it. I just noticed this small bump. I feel as though these symptoms pretty much cover herpes, but I am also a definite hypochondriac. I can't get the thought/devastation out of my mind. I desperately need the help of this forum.

I think there are a lot of other things that could explain you symptoms too...if 25% of people have genital herpes you have a 75% chance of not having got it from this person. But those are just percentages...and they won't mean s**t if you actually do have herpes...it doesn't distinguish: there are virgins with it and whores without it. The best thing you can do is get a dr to look at this bumps and sores, maybe take a swab and do a blood test. That is the absolute best way to get a sure answer that will relieve your anxiety. We all make mistakes and do silly things we may regret...it is human...but there is no point worrying yourself to death because of those mistakes. Be brave and go and get a reliable medical opinion it will make you feel better...once you have that sorted you can deal properly with the any emotions you may still have as a result of the situation.

Be strong...stop worrying and good luck :-)

Hi boston, I think tiny has pretty much covered it all so I am not going to over ride her good work but I will just add that what you could be dealing with here is something as small as a reaction to you shaving, or perhaps upset skin from vigorous sex or too dryer oral sex performed on you. There are many scenarios here but there is only one way to find out. Don't be afraid..we only fear what we don't know. You will have plenty of support here should the test result come back unfavourably.

      That's some new info for me you mentioned about talking valtrex during the first month of infection. When I got mine, it was after heavy nights of partying (that I don't normally do) in the southern islands so my immunity was definitely dead. I was still a student back then.. I didn't start Acyclovir until a month after or so.  For mixing BHT with coconut oil, I just added them together into a glass pipette bottle and put the jar in a bowl of almost boiling water. It worked very easily to create a 250mg/ml solution.  I might give BHT another try, I quit if after 2 weeks because I didn't get any effects from it. Might give it another go at 1g/day.  Root canalled tooth.. is this because you get the outbreaks in your mouth? I also have a root canalled tooth but the OBs are genital.

      Yes, it was affecting my thyroid, I can feel it swell when the infection comes on.  It is known as hashimoto's.  The immune system inadvertently attacks the thyroid tissue in a collateral damage type effect.  It can be caused by any of the 8 types of herpes virus.  I believe that my infection is in my vagus nerve.  Anyways, it has been hell, but I have it to a manageable level now.  Steven also said that the recurring infection could be due to a root canalled tooth.  I had a root canal job done on a molar but never got around to putting a crown on it, so that could be causing some reactivation as well.  I am planning to pull it out soon.

      Thanks Quest, so I just googled this and it appears that heating does break it down.  I have been heating at the lowest heat that my gas burner will burn at, and just to the point where I can get it to dissolve, but it appears I have been inactivating a percentage of the bht.  Will have to figure out a better way.   I think heating to 100 degrees celsius likely will not inactivate too much.  According to this study, heating it to 175 degrees for 2 hours only inactivated 15-30% of the bht.  I think I read the way to heat it was inside a jar placed into a pot of boiling or simmering water.  Will try making a batch that way.  https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s11746-000-0147-9

      Valtrex is worthless against my strain anyways, it does next to nothing, and it irritates my kidneys, so for some strains it will do nothing period.  It is criminal that there are vaccines that have been developed that can't get funding from big pharma.  Seriously hate big pharma.

      To save everyone time in translating, the article is about Trivalent and contains nothing “new” to share.  However, fingers crossed on this one :-)
