Its the outbreaks in other areas that are bothering me...


Recommended Posts

Has anyone else out there gotten outbreaks in places other than mouth or genitals? I have HSV1 and my initial OB was on genitals but that was 4 months ago. Recently I had a barely noticable sore on my inner lip which went away with ointment, 2 sores show up on either side of my neck and one on hip and one on back of my thigh. Whats up with that???? I have come to terms with the oral/genital OB possibilities...but i cant seem to get over the other areas....I literally feel like a leper. Granted these "outbreaks" are mild and only noticable to me but its still unnerving. Is it safe to think that once I develop many antibodies that the outbreaks will diminish?? I only recently contracted this 4 months ago. I know I didnt have it before because my blood tests were negative but the swabs were positive. I just really want this to go dormant so that I can relax awhile.

Hello Sassyass...

I'm so sorry you are having such a difficult time with your OB's! I had pretty regular OB's in the past in my extreme low back next to my sacrum (upper buttocks).... it's the pits for sure... there isn't a good place to have an OB!!!

Are you taking suppressive therapy?

Make absolutely positive if it you touch those areas that you wash your hands and clean your fingernails properly.

I use 3M waterproof bandaids on my OB's on my upper buttocks that can be covered. It helps to feel better because it's not getting rubbed by clothing, etc. and it keeps to prevent accidental touch and spread.

Hope that helps and hope you feel better soon!

      Okay.... makes sense.... I hope it is helping.  Again, I would ask about a Rx for valacyclovir instead of acyclovir.... valacyclovir gets more acyclovir into your system than taking straight acyclovir.

      Hi @Throwaway765 yes that all makes sense and you’ve pretty well reached the right conclusions except for a very significant fact!! You are right, receiving genital HSV-2 from oral sex is unheard of, just not feasible given how people have it and whether it actually sheds in infectious quantities or not. Safely rule this out. Now HSV-1; once you have this as you do orally, you have immunity against infection anywhere else on the body, it is also not feasible.  The symptoms you describe are also not related to herpes in the absence of lesions.

      Thanks for your response! I received unprotected oral 10 weeks ago and immediately after had stinging in my glans and weird nerve pain. I am positive for HSV1 due to cold sores I got as a child, but as recent as 9 weeks after this exposure have tested negative for HSV2.    im nervous that I may have acquired hsv1 again on my genitals since HSV2 is rarely acquired from oral sex and doesn’t shed hardly at all, but haven’t seen any sores yet. Just weird symptoms and this started recently in my buttcrack when I was taking antibiotics.   Any advice or perspective would be greatly appreciated. @WilsoInAus

      Hi @Throwaway765 and welcome. There is absolutely no concern over this being related to herpes. Something must be concerning you as to the possibility of herpes… what is it?
