new toy or herpers?

Recommended Posts


I recently bought a new toy cleaned it very well and used it. and that same weekend i slept with a guy. i went to the er freaking out cause i had 4 little bumps show up that scared me he said they looked like herpes and he gave me medication. I was not tested for it. Once they went away I used the toy again and now they are back again...Im not sure what to really think is going on with my body now, or what to do.

I'd wait about 2 or 3 months and then go and get a blood test to check for anti-bodies, or get the sores swabbed if you get more. It is possibly an allergic reaction or it could be herpes...only a test will be able to tell you that.

I know I have got thrush from certain toys...a particular type of silicon doesn't agree with me...so now I have found that I feel more comfortable using glass toys. I have herpes and often latex, silicon anything different in that area can cause a flare up. Glass it just easier to clean and far less likely to harbour germies.

I'd also say don't use that particular toy...clearly it is not your friend!

im hoping its just an allergic reaction but dont we all. Im tryin to go in and get them swabbed but there are never any appointments open for when i need to go. they never did a blood test either so maybe if they are gone by my appointment date they can do a blood test. and yeah i dont think that toy is my friend either.

      Hi everyone  I have Ghsv1. 3 months I receive frequent outbreaks. There are no lesion redness, burning and itching as just a rash. I know that herpes trigger opportunistic infections. How do I know this mushroom or that herpes ?  Do you have frequent outbreaks is living Ghsv1? I feel alone

      I have been positive for about 8 months and I’ve generally been open to friends and family about my status. I’ve tried a brief stint with dating other H+ folks from Postive Singles and it hasn’t really worked out.  There’s this guy who works security at my gym and he’s been chatting me up a lot recently. I like him and I haven’t made any moves but I get the vibe he’s getting ready to ask me out. It sucks because he’s obviously interested and I would love to go out on a date with him.  I’ve never had to disclose to a new person before and I’m really really really dreading this. I’m dreading it to the point where Im wondering if I should turn him down if he does ask me. I hate this. You know I could handle the symptoms of herpes, the only thing that sucks about this thing is that it’s contagious. I have zero problem taking drugs everyday, but valtrex is so fucking inadequate with providing me any reassurance of reducing transmission.  I’m so frustrated. Just give me some better fucking drugs so I can feel confident again.

      Any advice on on how i can change the way she thinks of her insecurities in the event I ever see her again or hang out with her or do you guys think that it's better too just walk away. The truth is though i never met another girl like her before and she was fine with me having herpes i could tell by the she reacted too it . How do you change the way someone views them self that has low self esteem.

      Note @Asr624 that an IgM result does not confirm a herpes diagnosis. Was the rash swabbed as well?

      Yes it's entirely possible that he didn't know and just now gave it to you. I've been with my husband almost 19 years and he was recently tested and is still negative. It's still possible of course that I could give it to him at any point. Sounds like you have a strong marriage and there is no reason this needs to be an issue other than a minor annoyance. I have 2 healthy children and have had no related medical issues due to HSV.
