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 :)

      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?
