Hi Margaret. You've come to the right place for information and support. I'm so sorry you are going through this. Is this a recent diagnosis? I too am struggling but it helps to be part of this forum.

Sorry Margaretz1983, you're feeling down. Hang in there. I'm in the same boat and completely understand.

its so strange how to me it doesnt seem like a big deal but to others it is and thats what makes it so difficult, if people only knew the stuff living inside them that could kill them, this would seem like a walk in the park. the social stigma attatched to this is just mind boggling...esp when you consider how many people have it and dont even know it....we all got it from somewhere...i didnt just up and give it to myself.

I almost wish everyone in the world would have to get a blood test, all at the same time. Everyone might freak out at first, but then we'd get over it and realize how common this is.

I'm having the same problem. It's not the H that bothers me, it's how people will react.

      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!!!
