Tingling and weird sensations down there... any one feel like this??? Please help!!

Recommended Posts

I was just confirmed to have GHSV2 last Wednesday. I had symptoms the week before, but had to wait to get my test results. I have started taking Valtrex and have four more days until I am done. Currently I do not have a visible outbreak, but for some reason I am getting weird sensations in my genital area. I guess I could call it "tingling", but it feels more like something is crawling under my skin down there. It's a little itchy at times, but I also shave, so now I can't remember if I felt these sensations before, or if they are due to the HSV. Does anyone have similar feelings down there? I am scared that once I stop the Valtrex I am going to get another outbreak... (because isn't tingling a sign the vrius is active??). Also, I am still involved with someone (he knows I have it), but I am not sure where the relationship is now going because I just told him. However, if we do stay together and decide to have sex, should I hold off until the tingling completely stops?? I've been feeling like this for about a week with no other symptoms and have been taking Valtrex for the same amount of time. Please any help would be greatly appreciated, I am completely new to this and trying to manage as best as I can (which is difficult seeing as I've only officially known for about a week). Thanks :)

I'm a guy taking no meds so i feel itching and tingling all the time. I'm pretty sure that your right about all that you have said. All you can do is take all the precautions when having sex. Condoms, vitamins, and medication. Have you tried kelp? or lysine? Have you cahnged your diet?

Currently I am taking a combination lysine, vitamin C, zinc and astragulus pill and today I started to take olive leaf extract. However, I am vegan and am finding it hard to balance my diet and make sure I am not eating too much rich arginine foods. This is really hard for me, but I don't think I could consider adding any animal products back into my diet.. the diet part is definitely the most frustrating for me...

I have had this almost 10 months now and I still get this daily. I also got it 6 months before my first outbreak and I didn't know what it was.

All I can say is that I've felt the same symptoms as you, but I've noticed its becoming less and less. Not as bad as I used to feel, so that means that it DOES get better.

Unfortunately I can only assume that since we have this we may from time to time get a 'warning' that something is lurking...I assume over time it will become less and less - but in the end we will all be ok.

Just TAKE CARE OF YOUR HEALTH AND YOUR BODY. Treat it like a sanctuary.

      @WilsoInAus thanks for the clarification. I am currently taking into account all possibilities that i might encounter, since my fiance is positive HSV-1. I am preparing myself for the future, if I however eventually get infected from him. Im on the brink . We will have an appointment with a Doctor on friday, to justify more about this and I am so anxious of knowing what the Dr will say. I am scare it might effect my decision of marrying him. How I wish this virus could be kill, how I wish life hasn't be this cruel to us. The day for us to tie the knot is just around the corner, everything had been prepared and we are tested with this news. Im showing my support to him right now but deep down, Im sooo scared. It's truly an adventure

      Note that it’s not an infection as we know it the eye, these are caused by bacteria. Sometimes though the virus will attack the cornea and cause issues. It is estimated about 1 in 50,000 people per year will suffer some vision impairment from HSV-1. However these people are almost always not treated with antivirals where success appears to be over 90% for preventing permanent damage.

      Hi @patpat I encountered same situation like yours. I really want to know what is your next step. Did you finally get married? How is your life now? Any advice?  I know this is an old thread but this is related to me. Would be so much relieve to be able to talk to someone in the same shoe. Hope you still buzzing around honeycomb

      BHT has helped me soooo much! When I first got infected my outbreaks were constant .. one would heal up and there comes another ... it was terrible . I was so fuxking depressed and miserable. I cut out the “trigger foods” took vitamin c and lysine .. drank apple cider vinegar .. nothing worked until BHT!!! Now that I take BHT i rarely have Outbreaks. If I do it’s because I sometimes forget and skip taking it .. or I eat some trigger food + forget the Bht .. but even then my outbreaks are SOOOO a mild compared to before . I’ve had outbreaks that have disappeared in a day . Sometimes I up my dosage on BHT when I do have a mild outbreak , and apply topically. It really has been such a blessing to find out about BHT
