Glad to find this site!

Recommended Posts


Hello all I was searching online for any recent research findings and I saw this site. I'm very glad to see others as real people not just numbers in a statistic. Like others I feel like a leper. Support groups are wonderful!!

HI Senshi, I feel like you do, am new here and feel like a leper, but from what people on here say, we are not alone. Even though I feel like I am.

I think a lot of us felt the same when first diagnosed, its a big thing to try and get your head around, but believe me when i say that time will change your point of view, i felt the same as you when i was first disagnosed and although i still sometimes get down about it(mainly when having an ob) i also have decided that having ghsv1 isnt everything about me, im still the same person and this website is invaluable, lots of support and help from others on here if you have any questions

      I notice in the morning several white bumps and inflammation. An 1h or 2 after and the usual burning sensation, stomach cramps, and vaginal discharge. I took a second dose of valacyclovir during lunch (i take it daily before going to bed but dose up to twice a day if i have an ob) and tonight the symptoms are already gone. No more white bumps, maybe some tiny open sores that i cant really see and some inflammation. How the hell is this possible? Can my herpes ob heal that fast? Does it happen to anybody else? I read they usually last 2 to 3 days.

      I had unprotected sex about 3 days ago and I got a single bump that has no fluid, but has a yellow tint to it when I shine a flashlight on it. I shaved recently before the unprotected sex and had some irritation prior. Is this yellow coloration associated with herpes? Please let me know if you guys think this is herpes? Thanks

      Are you sure it's not related to diet and subsequent weight gain since you got hsv?

      I mentioned in a post that I have a burning sensation on my mouth. Dermatologist keeps trying to say it's Fordyce spot, but cannot give me a solid explanation as to why my lips burns and how my girlfriend developed the exact same symptoms.  I find it unlikely that two people both have flu-like symptoms, tingling on the lips, and they both got it at the same time.

      You literally never kiss your partner?
