Horrible Nightmare Ride

Recommended Posts


About a month ago I got sores on my mouth and legs. I went to five doctors. One said for sure herpes, three said for sure not, and one said probably not. I got four swabs done which all came back negative. I also got blood tests done to check for herpes. The blood tests came back as negative for both hsv-1 and hsv-2. I developed the first sores out of seemingly no where. I had not kissed someone for two months and had never had the symptoms of having herpes. I was treated for impetigo and my sores all healed and stopped weeping in about two days and the red skin cleared up after about two weeks, other then some residual itching. For two weeks I thought that it had not been herpes after all...I thought I had avoided my ultimate nightmare that had left me depressed for three straight weeks.

Well this weekend I kissed a girl. A day and a half later and this girl has a sore on her lip. It appears that I am in fact in my nightmare. At least it let me get two more great weeks out of life before totally settling in. My questions are these, I have now spread this in the same exact way twice. The first time I didn't realize I had herpes and I kissed a girl who exactly two days later developed a sore on her upper lip. Now I went to all these doctors mostly to find out if I needed to abstain from sex for a while and from kissing until I understood and explained my herpes to any potential partners. Well I had four doctors tell me I didn't need to do any such things, since it wasn't herpes, and only one who made his diagnosis after looking at it for two seconds in an urgent care room said nothing on the matter. So I went ahead and kissed another girl. I had no signs at all, no tingling, nothing (I know about viral shredding) but I had no idea it could spread so easily. Well lo and behold two days later she has a sore in the same exact place as the last girl. So I guess I have herpes.

I should say as follow up during the first episode, the first girl went to a doctor and they said for sure not herpes but staph and treated her for that. So I guess they were wrong about her too!

UPDATE: As of today the second girl went to the doctor and was also diagnosed with staph. Is it possible to be a carrier of staph? I have no idea what is going on and none of the five doctors I have seen have given me any definitive answer. Sometimes I feel like modern medicine isn't so great! ( I know it actually is I'm just frustrated). I am going to get a second blood test to see if anything has changed.

Well now I am back to totally depressed. I am not sure what I am going to do because I can't handle this. I think maybe I will run away to an island and wait to die. :(

If you have had multiple doctors and a blood test tell you that you don't have herpes. YOU DON'T HAVE HERPES.

      I have not had sexual contact for at least half a year with a partner of more than four years monogamous, one non-protected encounter four years ago different women and then a few more non-protected over ten years ago.   One morning, I woke up after a having bad night time sweats (common) with a bad itch in my pubic region hair on right side about halfway between my penis and belly button. I did not look closely to later that night and noticed a large red rash, but don't believe I looked that closely. At some point I noticed a blister or something and tried to pop it and then walked away, I think being in denial I didn't want to look that closely, so I cant describe symptoms. This was on a Saturday or Sunday. The following Monday I went to work, where I do a physical demanding job al week, I noticed the area that had the rash showed about four areas that were infected (either cut or blistered) and would burn at night time during the week, They were located on my right side, directly where my belt buckle rubs. During the days that work week, my belt buckle would drive and rub in the area ( my buckle is metal square with pointy but not sharpe edges), I tried to pull my pants up and get the belt off the area but that was not always possible. After work that week, I took the weekend and then next two days off of work, the shooting pain evidently stopped and the area after a another week or two looked to be healing.  Week before symptoms: I have been under stress at work and the previous two days before the rash / OB I was working on a boat with another person, we were sharing work equipment and peeing with out washing hands (could he have had it and spread it to me through sharing of phones, equipment if he peed and then touch my phone, then I peed (sorry if stupid question)? My belt could have also been digging into me also, I have been wearing this belt for over a year and never had a problem. Currently, I took a Herpes 1 and 2 test from stdcheck using quest and it came back negative. Symptoms Dec 2/3 test Jan 21, negative results Jan 23. The area in pubic region is still red and appears to be scared but no open sores.   I know it is crazy but with the those symptoms I am still worried. Was that too soon to get a test? Is there any chance of getting if from a co-worker if they have it and touched the same things you did? Would you recommend getting another blood test in 3 months? Thank you for your input.

      Doctors will tell you this, but it's incredibly irresponsible of them, and it's advice that needs to be ignored. You always need to disclose your status before having sex with someone.

      The general public is just really poorly educated when it comes to virology in my opinion. Part of it though is just the fact that there's only so much information a person can remember and care about at one time. However I've always felt like HPV is way more openly discussed than HSV, at least in women's spaces.

      Here is the full science and documentation behind the herpes patent . RNA GUIDED ERADICATION OF HERPES SIMPLEX TYPE I AND OTHER RELATED HERPESVIRUSES   https://patents.justia.com/patent/20180000970   I hope this will help answer your questions.

      The fact that there are so many people contracting hsv-1 genitally from as little as one sexual encounter leads me to believe that it likely more 'tuned' to the genital region than medicine realizes.
