herpes on fingers


Recommended Posts

hey just thought id ask if anyone has had outbreaks on their fingers... ive been researching and think that what i have is herpes but my only breakout has been on my fingers over the last few years... i went to the doctor years ago and he said it was poison ivy and gave me medication, now when the lesions come back i always think its just the poison ivy... i have an appointment today so ill hopefully set things straight

yeah..i researched it and figured thats what i probably had..went to the doctors and turns out it is that... so all is good. i have to live with the outbreaks but so far they are far apart and dont last too long... i have medication and im not too worried..its something that isnt life altering and really isnt a huge problem

I will tell, recently, I thought I MIGHT have transmitted herpes somehow to my hands (still not sure, doesn't look like it, but who knows....I also have eczema, so it could be that as well...sigh) but when I would go online to try and find information....NADA...other than what it is, what is might look like (and they always have pictures of the WORST case scenarios....)

So then I was trying to find out what I can do to prevent spreading this shit onto myself in case it WAS Herpes Whitlow as well as onto my infant son. NO WHERE ON LINE WAS THERE ANY PREVENTIVE INFORMATION.

How is THAT for a kicker. Pissed me off. I have been grousing and angry for the past two days. I just took initiative and wore latex gloves around the house and anytime holding the baby. Might sound crazy, but I would rather do that and be safe. I even called a nurse advisory line that my local hospital gave me and THEY could give me NO sound advice. Poor lady was as confused as I was. She did mention she using lysine for her cold sores if she ever gets them. (I am big on lysine.)

I am still unsure of that is going on with my hands. I am hoping it is just the old eczema acting up....I am just watching and being careful. SO frustrating. 3 years ago, I wouldn't even have thought twice about it. Now...every darn dot on my skin and I am like "AAAHHHHH herpes!"

So gem, I would say, keep up with your kick ass positive attitude and do NOT let this stuff freak you out as it does to me. Freaking out isn't going to help matter much. I think I do enough freaking out for everyone on this board and then some! HAHAHA! :lol:

      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!
