questions about seepage

Recommended Posts



Just have a couple of questions.My son went to the ER with what he thought was jockitch.The dr just looked at the area and said it looked like herpes and gave him some meds (Acyclovir and Motrin for pain) now it's a week later and seems to be getting better but...he only got a like 2 sores that quicky healed but he still has a sticky clear fluid that is seeping from his actual skin.is that normal for herpes? His other symptoms are red senstive raw skin,itching,pain,back pain,aching muscles.

The symptoms seem to be lessening biut he was just wondering what the sticky fluid was from,it seems to be coming from the affected skin.

Also he noticed his skin in that area was flaking and peeling off so he is hoping that it is healing but the seepage is causing him stress because he is always wondering if it is something serious wrong with him. He does not have a dr or health insurence and we have tried to get him in to the health dept to get tested but they just refer their patients to another dr who will only see my son if he has insurence :madd:

I thought I would write in so he can try to relax because I know that will only cause the symptoms to worsen, so what it boils down to is...can you get seepage that comes from the skin and not a sore?

Thank you :)

      Postherpetic neuralgia 15% of the time is hsv1. It lives in your nerve ganglia. I don't see why that's so far fetched when it is well supported by research.

      I have HSV & foot nerve pain. I am 100% sure it's from HSV. My Infectious Disease Dr, very well known in NJ, said it is a possibility, he is not ruling it out. There are many strains of HSV & the one I have affected my feet.  I take L-Lysine, Daily Complete Vitamins & Vitamin B-12. My heart goes out to you. I will pray you find relief. Keep your head up & think positive. Sending hugs. Keep us posted

      The chance of getting some HPV-Strain in life (as a person that is not abstinent) is literally about 99% i read. 
      And in 90% of cases the virus is gone after 2 years. And the chance of cancer is looooots smaller than 10% - you just go get your pap smears, so if something happens they know right away and they can treat it. Getting a positive pap smear at some point in life is super-common as a woman.

      I'd like to thank everyone for their input. Let's please keep things civil. I am going to continue with Acyclovir, until I feel my symptoms disappear. If they do not subside, I plan on consulting a physician again.

      So... this would be a revolutionary simple Solution, to an extreme problem: transmitting and getting STD's where condoms don't help.  And people don't give a fuck and noone answers.    Now we just have to find out if it works.  - Does it hinder herpes transmissions (and perhaps also other stuff like hpv) - What is the cost (per sex) - What is the practicality
