My Experience and advice

Recommended Posts


Hi every one ..

I have been diagnose with HSV2 .I have been living with this disease since one year.

When I got my first out break it was so severe that I had to go to the emergency gynecologist on duty. I could not get out of bed for two days. I had upset stomach and could not eat. Even walking was difficult task for me. I had so much pain around my legs and my hip.They gave me so many medicines to ease the pain but nothing really worked well on me. Its been a year and I learn to live with this illness. I have break outs almost every week. Few moths ago I couldn't move my waist and at the end I had to go to the physiotherapy. They told me it was all linked to hsv. Doctors told me that my immune system is low and thats why I have hard time with this illness. It is never an easy road for me. I have difficulty in my relationship.I have skin problems and I am some times very depressed about this situation. Even though I never gave up hope. I will go the new doctor next week for my immune system and try to minimize my break outs. I want to share some helpful information for new diagnoses. I hope some of these could help to ease your pain.

I live in Europe so you can not find some of these medicines in your country but please ask your doctor for help.

* Asiviral Cream and pill

*Immunace for your immune system


*Vitamin B

*Etol Fort if you have pain.

* Dulcolax for toilet no2. For the first weeks of the diagnose.

*Bepanthen after asiviral cream your skin drys up.

*Use small bag to carry with you all the time.Put your medicines,pads and creams.

* Use cotton under wear. Do not wear g-string if possible.

* Always change your underwear.

* Use thin pads like carefree. Carry them with you all the time.

* Use body soap PH 5.5

* Use hand soap anti bacterial.

* Wash you hands before and after the WC

* By a mirror with handle.

*Always use protection

* Eat healthy foods. If possible get some rest.

*See your doctor regularly and don't be afraid to ask questions.

Wish you all the best.

Sorry to hear you are having problems with this. For most people it does get better with time and hopefully it will for you too.

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

Good luck!

      Sort of unrelated, but I remember a few months ago finding new patents filed last year for the einstein college vaccine. I wondered if they were indicative of new developments with it, but I brushed it off as probably not.

      I have not had sexual contact for at least half a year with a partner of more than four years monogamous, one non-protected encounter four years ago different women and then a few more non-protected over ten years ago.   One morning, I woke up after a having bad night time sweats (common) with a bad itch in my pubic region hair on right side about halfway between my penis and belly button. I did not look closely to later that night and noticed a large red rash, but don't believe I looked that closely. At some point I noticed a blister or something and tried to pop it and then walked away, I think being in denial I didn't want to look that closely, so I cant describe symptoms. This was on a Saturday or Sunday. The following Monday I went to work, where I do a physical demanding job al week, I noticed the area that had the rash showed about four areas that were infected (either cut or blistered) and would burn at night time during the week, They were located on my right side, directly where my belt buckle rubs. During the days that work week, my belt buckle would drive and rub in the area ( my buckle is metal square with pointy but not sharpe edges), I tried to pull my pants up and get the belt off the area but that was not always possible. After work that week, I took the weekend and then next two days off of work, the shooting pain evidently stopped and the area after a another week or two looked to be healing.  Week before symptoms: I have been under stress at work and the previous two days before the rash / OB I was working on a boat with another person, we were sharing work equipment and peeing with out washing hands (could he have had it and spread it to me through sharing of phones, equipment if he peed and then touch my phone, then I peed (sorry if stupid question)? My belt could have also been digging into me also, I have been wearing this belt for over a year and never had a problem. Currently, I took a Herpes 1 and 2 test from stdcheck using quest and it came back negative. Symptoms Dec 2/3 test Jan 21, negative results Jan 23. The area in pubic region is still red and appears to be scared but no open sores.   I know it is crazy but with the those symptoms I am still worried. Was that too soon to get a test? Is there any chance of getting if from a co-worker if they have it and touched the same things you did? Would you recommend getting another blood test in 3 months? Thank you for your input.

      Doctors will tell you this, but it's incredibly irresponsible of them, and it's advice that needs to be ignored. You always need to disclose your status before having sex with someone.

      The general public is just really poorly educated when it comes to virology in my opinion. Part of it though is just the fact that there's only so much information a person can remember and care about at one time. However I've always felt like HPV is way more openly discussed than HSV, at least in women's spaces.
