Spent Thanksgiving in Urgent care!

Recommended Posts


Hello folks!

I was diagnosed with HSV 1 on the genitals today. I have been through a lot of hardships in life, so originally I was really distraught. I was just laid off, I had a really bad leg injury this summer, and now this. I guess bad things do come in threes!

That being said I am a class clown, and find myself becoming an optimist. I am surprised at how I reacted to the news...

My current boyfriend and I were best friends before we started dating. He is a sweetheart. He recently had a cold sore, and even though he didn't come near me with his mouth when he had an active sore, I am sure he transmitted the virus accidentally before his cold sore was painfully apparent.

I was mad at him at first, but I realized that was unfair. I can't believe 1) that I have genital herpes and 2) that I will have this for the rest of my life. I feel the best course of action is to be calm and optimistic: I guess stress makes the symptoms worse. TO be honest I am more afraid of the financial ramifications, seeing that I just lost my job.

Generic acyclovir is reasonbly priced in the U.S. Some peeps take supplements like L-Lysine, and/or colloidal silver.

      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!!!
