IT WON'T GO AWAY!!!!!! Is there a Doc out there?

Recommended Posts

taurus5348

What the hell is going on here? I have genital HSV1. I got it 3 months ago from a girl that gave me oral sex with a developing cold sore. My first OB I got 4 cold sores in the pubic area and then some rashes on the penis that never hurt or itched. I never developed flu like symptoms either. I considered my first OB to be somewhat minor. Since the initial OB the cold sores went away but the rashes on the penis have not. Now I have this purple discoloration on my penis. More graphically, it's red in the foreskin area, there are shinny areas on the shaft where there was the initial OB and the head has these dark red/ purple areas. This hasn't changes in three months. Sometimes it looks like it is going away then back it comes. Nothing hurts it just looks like hell. Everything is scabbed over but it never goes to the next stage of completely disappearing. I'm becoming really discouraged. I even started taking Valacyclovir again and I'm putting on this spray I got at CVS called Fast Results CAN ANYONE HELP ME? I will post pictures if it helps someone help me.

Unfortunately I have never seen a doctor post on this board. I believe there are other sites where you can pay to ask questions of doctors.

Don't rely on strangers you meet on a website for medical diagnosis.

Good luck!

go to your doctor ask if you can up the dose on your valtrex, you can also ask him about Famvir(which is stronger and works slightly differently). Look for an oral product with Benzocaine in it(available over-the-counter), it will help numb it. Also you can take Ibuprofin; but if its not going away, you should probably see the doctor.

Let us know how it turns out for you.

Hey buddy.... just want to let you know you're not alone. It's taken me almost 4 months to almost completely get rid of the initial sore on my penis. I am still not 100% clear. I think masturbation irritates it and keeps bringing it back and can spread it on my penis. I will say it has gotten better but I have yet to be completely clear in almost 4 months. I continue to try to build up my immune system by eating healthy and exercising and trying to keep the stress levels down. Try to hang in there and try not to stress out..... Herpes LOVES stress.

      Lol, a thousand guinea pigs.  I think you raise a good question (though it's a bit sad that a 1000 guinea pigs might have to die). But every every preclinical study I know, also uses a fairly small number of lab animals.  It's rarely more than a few dozen.  For example, the EDITAS proof of concept ocular herpes solution tested in 36 animals, of which some got placebo, and some got AAV with no editors.  So testing in only a handful of animals seems to be the norm.  So I wouldn't read into that caveat too much, if I were you.  But whether that vaccine can ever enter human trials, that I don't know.   Some things I've read seemed to suggest that ppl are kind of down on the idea of testing vaccines, on account of the failures.  I hope that's not the case.

      Yeah @Lukeherpwalker I agree. Many people just see the igg tests and listen to random internet strangers about their results being from a childhood infection and on their mouth.  The fact is I got genital herpes because someone didn’t want to believe their HSV1 was genital when it was. Blood tests never can tell you location. Fact. Let’s deal with facts instead of highly unsupported opinions in the name of a life long virus shall we?

      hi Imsu, No problem about the questions.  Sangamo is a research stage stem cell and gene editing company.  They currently are not researching HSV.  But they have a gene editing and stem cell stage 1/2 trials going on regarding HIV.  The gene editing solution they are using is zinc fingers. https://www.sangamo.com/pipeline/partnered-programs And no problem about your questions.  Feel free to also inbox me if you like and want to continue the conversation.  I'm not an expert, but I've done my research.  Cheers.

      I’m more than sure you got it from your current boyfriend. 5 days later and you have an outbreak in the anal where you did it for the first time. I had a vaginal outbreak 5 days after unprotected sex with my ex. I knew I was from him because of the negative tests I had during my outbreak. Unfortunately he was i denial about the situation and didn’t support me at all. Your boyfriend may not have been aware that he had it. And he may also lie about it if he finds out he actually does carry the virus. Hopefully he gets tested and things get sorted out for the both of you.

      If you are having genital symptoms. . and test positive for hsv1 its very relevant. Op may indeed have ghsv1
