Just Found out i Have Herpes


Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone! Just had a few questions on herpes, I had to go to the ER tonight because i had very bad discomfort in my privite area and my throat has been sore for about 2 or 3 weeks, and i went in to talk to my doc tonight and told him about my discomfort i had been experencing, well i have them and i know nothing at all about it. I never thought i would live this day, im scared And IN LOADS of Pain, they gave me some pills called Valtrax or something to that nature, i dont know what i should do, if someone would be willing to talk to me on this one on one i would be so grateful, please email me at no1uno_1987@yahoo.com or get back to me on here.


god bless all..

If your doctor didn't give you anything for pain, you can alternate Tylenol with Advil. Try to take two 15 minute bath soaks each day. Use your hair dryer on low to thoroughly dry your lesions. Then, you can spray Dermaplast or Solarcaine (sunburn spray) on the lesions to reduce pain and itching. Wear loose 100% cotton panties (no nylon or synthetic). Expect that it is going to take about three weeks for your lesions to heal from the initial outbreak.

To learn more about how to care for yourself and to protect a sexual partner, go to http://www.westoverheights.com and download or read online the Herpes Handbook - wonderfully informative "must read" for the newly diagnosed. If you have specific medical questions, go to WebMd and click on Terri Warren's Genital Herpes forum where you can ask questions of the nurses. Take things one day at a time, and it will get better emotionally and physically in a little while. If you feel depressed, this is not ususual. Counselling and/or short term antidepressant therapy can help considerably. Keep in mind that you have a VERY common virus that 1 in 4 of us carry. HUGS

      Hey @JS.245 and welcome to the website. The pictures aren’t that suggestive of herpes. Hard to tell from the pics what’s going on, but that could be a number of things. Are the larger bump bubble things persistent? What you have in the pics is hence independent of your herpes status.  The test results are inclusive - most people test over 5 if they are infected.  Do you have a history of oral cold sores?

      Hey, just got a STD test a while ago after noticing these showing up at the base of my penis, but its been about 5 months since I was with someone and now these are showing up. It doesn't hurt nor do I have any other symptom that I know of. I'm trying to see what's up before I go to the doctors because I don't have insurance and I'm very anxious about the situation. the std test was expensive as is.

      Just another set of supporting articles to a potential release date in 2024 giving hope to sufferers whom the standard of care is currently worthless: Promising Progress in clinical trials for Pritelivir (herpescureadvocacy.com) HSV Treatment Readies for Approval — Precision Vaccinations News

      I have not found a cheaper source for Amenalief, and I've searched high and low. I have a thread called "Pritelivir at Last" you may want to follow as I have a strong belief that It may be available to the public in the summer of 2024 and as I find new info, I update the thread immediately. Now, may I suggest a combination of drugs that several others on this forum have found to be very effective over acyclovir alone? Myself and others have found that taking 40mg of omeprazole (Tagamet @dissolvedo2 ) with 1 gram of Valacyclovir in the morning and 1 gram of Valacyclovir in the evening alone for 3 days have had profound effectiveness at stopping outbreaks in their tracks. I'd like to remind you that I am not a doctor and at best I am personal researcher for what works for me. I @lw@ys share my findings with the forum in the hopes to help others alleviate their suffering. There is another drug combo that I have tried myself as well as others on this forum have tried and that I personally feel is a much more effective for myself. This combo is 1 gram of activated charcoal with 1-gram of valacyclovir in the morning followed by 1 gram of valacyclovir in the evening alone, again for 3 days. I have found that this has reduced my outbreaks to almost only once a year and they are mild at worse. Again, just a reminder that this works for me and may not work for you but I always feel that i have to share this with anyone that cannot get this virus under control so I hope my findings can help those of you who cannot achieve relief with the standard treatment alone. The stronger anti-virals come with risks and if I can help anyone avoid those risks then by all means I feel I have done some good in this world. I only ask that you let me know if either of these suggestions work for you so that I can document it in my notes. Good luck my friend!
