Hi inky, welcome to the 'club'.

Read all you can about this and you won't be devastated. You will learn that it really is a very common, mostly harmless virus. 80% of adults have it in one form or another.

Come to the "Chat Room", there you will find many nice fellow Herpsters who can offer you their support.

Good luck!

JB

inky I'm pretty new to this too. I just found out 3 weeks ago. I remember clearly the feelings that you are describing. But trust me, you will feel better eventually. Luckily I found this site on the second day that I found out. I learned a bunch of good tips for getting through the pain of the first OB (and mine was BAD), but also learned a lot about how to get through it mentally too. I encourage you to join the chat room. There are a bunch of "old timers" who have had it for a long time... some new timers like me who haven't had it long, but who are now past the devastation phase... and also some people that are brand new to it too. We all understand what you are going through, because we've been there.

I understand. I think that this will make us really take a good look at ourselves and dig deep for the strength to deal with this. I'm educating myself, but making a huge effort to focus on work and projects so as to not spend a lot of time thinking about this. The forum is great, as it's a positive way to be educated and thinking about in an appropriate and positive way.

Thank you both, this is a great place to come and chat. As I have not told anyone...other than the guy who gave it to me...so I have been feeling very alone. I've been on the chat forum and they have been so friendly and answered all my questions. I still feel so weird..and tearful at times, but I think I feel better than yesterday so it's looking better... and I'm only on day 3. Still in pain, but I can deal with that.

Thanks again. XXX

Hey Toot, just sent you a private message.

I do live in Scotland, but am from London, England.

The weather here is great as usual lol....wet and cold....but I wouldn't have it any other way.

So you're from USA? Tell me more.

      Who knows if I have had further testing since whatever post I made however long ago. Oh that's right, I know, and you don't, you ignorant fuck.

      I’m also in the same boat. The skin below my pelvic glands is red and rash-like or little red bumps show up for a day or two. Constant itching down there and on my scrotum. The entrance to my anus is itchy all day. Every doctor that has looked at it has seen nothing to be concerned about. Tingling on my lip, tingling in my left arm and hand, tingling in left foot. Tingling in my left thigh, full pain in head of penis. Girl I was seeing also has itchiness in her vag and the lip tingles. I get little cuts on my penis for no reason. Never been swabbed or taken theWestern Blot. So far, after 5 months since suspected contact, I’m IGG negative. this all happened soon after having sex multiple time with someone.

      This is coming very soon.  The chat we had was great but crashed the site each time.  We've researched lots of options and hopefully we are close. Thanks for your patience! Shenda

      Hi guys, I have been making myself crazy googling. So i decided to ask people who know. My 28 year old daughter just told me that she has hvs1 for the last 4 years. She had a swab test days after first outbreak, it came back positive. She was also having a psoriasis outbreak. 6 months in a blood test came back negative, 1 year in another blood test negative. My daughter also suffers with psoriasis and ibs with is linked to the psoriasis.  There is also genital psoriasis that looks like the herpes virus. So does she have it or not...I looked up so much on google but things are conflicting to say the least. I am hoping to get some insight here. Thank you all!!!
