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

Recommended Posts

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.

      Like alot of jobs people keep going even if they are against what they have to do.its money for them and if they don't have an ob or positive blood results they will carry on

      Hi guy,  Just diagnosed and trying to move on with my life. Understanding to prevent further outbreak, we would be best to stay actively healthy both mentally and physically.  Due to my nature of work, I am always under pressure. Should I plan on quitting and look for another job that is well suitable for my current condition or is manageable?  :,)

      I have no choice, I have tried everything on this planet regarding holistic approach. Nothing work so far. Now I am on Neem, does not work. I just keep trying new things as I go along. I believe some like me actually have a very strong immune system (have not been sick since I can remember, maybe 9-10 years) but my immune system does not recognise my HSV, so it just does what it wants, thats why the continuous OB's.  Don't think about ending life, life is to priceless. This is not cancer. Try to date a guy who have it as well, then there would be something you could fight together.
