Hello all. I was just diagnosed earlier this week with genital herpes. I'm still awaiting the swap culture results to come back, but my gyn was certain it was. I've been married for 7 years and neither my husband or I have had any symptoms in the past. Shortly after we were married, my husband's ex contacted him and told him he should get tested because she had an outbreak. Neither of us really thought much of it because we were in a committed relationship and had never had any symptoms in the 2 years since he'd been with her.

I'd had visible bumps for 3 days when I went into the doctor because I had no reason to suspect genital herpes and had been treating my "yeast infection" and "razor burn". I'm now on day 3 of valtrex and have been using a topical lidocaine as well. When will it get better??? I am in so much pain! The lidocaine seems to help for about 30 minutes before wearing off, but even with the addition of 600mg of ibuprofen the pain is unbearable! I've been taking warm baths to ease the burn and to help me urinate...but as soon as I get out the lesions start to puss and burn again! Is there anything I can do or take to find relief?

I've heard the first outbreak is the worst and it won't be this severe in the future...but this is worse than childbirth, and I've birthed an 8lb baby without medication!

I test positive for 1 and 2 but my outbreaks are either non-existent or they are so mild do not notice them. I have spoken to many people who tell me that the first year is really tough, that eventually your immune system learns how to suppress the outbreaks. Diet is also very important, I think certain foods are know to cause OB, peanuts, chocolate, and coconut are a few. When you urinate have a glass of warm water and pour it on your privates and then start peeing, I think this may help.

Wishing you relief and all my best.

with my initial outbreak it was sooo painful. I had only been sexual active twice and because of that my immune system must have wondered what had happened as I couldn't sit, peeing was just terrible, it was one of the worst outbreaks the clinic had seen! I found having a bath with salt in it was great and if you have to squat and pee in the bath. Hope things get better for you fast.

      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?
