I am so tired of these outbreaks

Recommended Posts


I have been diagnosed for over a year and I have had an outbreak each month sometimes even twice a month. I am very ashamed that I contracted this disease. It has impacted my life emotionally, physically and mentally. I wished there was a cure. This was the worst thing that could have happened to me because I suffer from severe depression and anxiety disorder. I always worry and stress about everything. This only adds to the outbreaks. I cannot seem to tell anyone that I have the disease so I withdrawal from having a relationship. I can't go on letting herpes control my life. I joined this group for support, to learn more and make changes to deal with this condition. Just don't know where to start.

Talk about it...to someone. I've had it for three months and have had four outbreaks, including one right now (and I take suppressive medication too). I've told plenty of people and it helps a lot...don't feel ashamed. There's nothing to be ashamed about. You got unlucky...all of us on this website have...no more, no less. It sucks...and it's definitely worth getting bummed out over...but ashamed? That part will go away if you start telling people...and if they react poorly...fuck them...

Stress really has an effect on outbreaks! I battle with depression and I really have to work hard at getting myself in a good place mentally during an outbreak. Always put yourself first during an outbreak and relax as much as possible. If you are that stressed out, maybe talk to your doctor about going on anti-anxiety meds or anti-depressants to help with your mental state.

      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!!!
