the genital herpes virus can affect the parts of your body that the sacral nerve enervates. your bum, vagina or penis, and even areas on your thigh.

Hello and welcome.

You are most infectious during the first year of having HSV. Since you have genital hsv, it lives in your sacral nerve and can affect the "boxer short" region when you have an OB. So, it could show up near your anus but it doesn't mean it has spread just that it has reached the skin surface via a different nerve path in the boxer short region.

If you have an OB and touch the sore and then another area, like your mouth or eye, you could spread it. Realistically, who would touch a sore and then their eye? My suggestion would be to read up about this topic under the "Prevention" section from the topics on the left of the web site. Common sense will take you a long way here. Good luck to you.

      I think once my bottle of optimal fulic acid is gone. I am going to switch to shilijit or however you spell it. I think humic acid plays an important role in keeping the hsv at bay. I read one natureopath was using only humic acid tablets to help her patients, but it didnt mention a dose or brand. Except that they slowly amounted to 8 tablets over i think it said almost a year to prevent a bad herx reaction. Can anyone trying the shillijiat chime in on how they have been doing on it? How often they take it and what your reactions have been the first few months?

      That’s it. I’m telling you the truth. I really can’t believe you. I have no reason to pretend to be someone else. I came here to learn and feel like people understood what I’m going through. You have me so upset. I don’t know what an IP address is but I know that admin can tell you I’m telling the truth.  Please, please just leave me alone so I don’t have to leave.

      @WilsoInAus well that picture I just posted look very similar to fordyce spots, but who knows...I get tested soon so perhaps that’ll be the verdict
