messed up

Recommended Posts


had a bad rash down below but never went to the doctor I didnt know what it was but I knew it wasnt normal. then a while after that i noticed a itchy rash on my chest I thought they were connected but then thought I was just being paranoid agian never went to the doctor. now i get lumps all over my face but 3 different doctors i went to say its dermatitis, acne and foliculitus. I've had a couple of swabs taken from my face but came back negative probably cause they werent in their active stages. I don't know what to do I know its herpes cause they itch hurt and my whole face tingles. I feel so dumb that i never went to the doctor when I first had my rash down below so I would've known that it can spread to other parts of your body I will regret it for the rest of my life. Im going to a dermatologist this week and hopfully he will take me seriously. I want to know has anyone else spread it to their face and what are some home remedies I can try

What you've described can be MANY things. Just because it itches and tingles doesn't neccesarily mean it's herpes. There are many skin conditions that spread as a result of touching other areas of the body. Moreover, it could have just surfaced in a new area just because.

I wouldn't go trying any remedies until you are certain what your condition is. If this next doc is certain it's not herpes, I would bet your bottom dollar it's not. I'm always self-diagnosing, swear I have everything I read.:rolleyes: Just last week, my eyes were burning, I convinced myself it was occular herpes. There's a whole slew of conditions that can cause eye burning..

Don't stress over something that may not be. Keep us updated!

      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.
