hi..i am new here. im so glad i found this site.

i just found out i have herpies 4 days ago , i started taking valtrex the same day. i am in the middle of an outbreak now and it is absolutly horrible . my question is when will the new sores stop appearing? i am losing my mind im not kidding i cant hardly stand it. its awful

is there any cream that help relieve some of the symptoms?

i know i should have asked when i found out but i just wasnt thinking then and i thought the meds would stop any more from coming out. (i was wrong)

I am sorry to hear that you have been diagnosed with this virus. I wish that I could give you a timeframe of when your sores are going to go away, but there is really no way to know. I was diagnosed in November 2006 with HSV2 and I have had an ob continuously since then. I really believe my menstrual cycle is the reason because they are so frequent. I have been tested for other things and everything else has come back negative. I also suffer from hypoglycemia and my doctor wants to test me for diabetes to see if it is a possibility that it could be causing the frequent ob's. I do understand what you are going through. I have painful and burning sores as well as pain in my lower back, my hips, my legs, my arms, and in the base of my head. I really hope that your ob goes away very soon. Until then, try very hard to stay positive and stressless as possible (I know it is hard to do). Just remember, you are not alone, we all are going through this together. :)

i just had my first OB, and it was painful, for me i felt it helped a lot to go to urinate in the shower, and one day mine was sooo painful and the next it was completely healed so i would say for mine, jsut when i though it was getting worse it got better. so keep your hopes high, and good luck!!

well it is still being a struggle here. new sores are still coming out. im on a 7 day treatment now but have just a couple days left. i thought for sure no new ones would come out, once i started taking it.

you are right it is very painful. i put alcohol on the new one this morning. i didnt think id live thru that. and i doubt i will do it again either. im just tryin to get thru this without losing my mind.

im so glad u only had to go thru 1 ob .i hope i am that way too.

I would also have to agree with SMH1. Just as I am feeling really bad and in pain from the virus, it gets better. Just this weekend, I started to feel sick and experience pain in the vagina, back, legs, and the back of my head. It hurt pretty bad, but within a few hours is started to subside. Eventhough, the pain comes and goes, it still gets to me because I experience pain in my head and that is what makes me feel even more sick. However, it does get better and when I do feel good, I try to enjoy myself.

      Hello "FeelingLost".... your fears and concerns are understandable but, nothing you've described regarding the sexual encounter would cause you to contract herpes.... further, your symptoms are not herpes related.  Best of all, your doctor is correct, your results don't show any herpes here.  You can relax.... definitely have your GP take a look at things and see what might be causing the symptoms but, again, none of them are typical herpes related.  I wish you the best in terms of talking to your wife about this encounter.... hopefully she will understand and you both can work through this amicably.  We all make mistakes.... be careful not to beat yourself up too hard over this.... you can become so racked with guilt that you start imagining physical symptoms.  Best of luck.... and take care..... come back to the site if you have questions.

      Hi (I’m really scared and feel really disappointed in myself and worried about my future), I had oral sex with a condom almost 3 weeks ago and a massage parlor. I also received a hand job at the same time prior to putting a condom on, also may have rubbed my penis on her back a little. Did not touch her genitals I don’t recall any sores on her back. After the event she handed me a pice of TP and after I took off the condom I wiped my penis head to clear away the excess ejaculation…this is where I suspect I got infected, she had just gone pee and wiped and maybe touched a sore or something and then I got it on my penis from the tp? Idk. I’m just flailing.   After this I’ve had discomfort on the skin below the head of my penis and 4 bumps for 2 weeks now, the bumps don’t seem to have changed in size. I also had frequent urination for about a week and have had dull pain in my groin on and off. I also have some pins and needles on the sides of my abdomen/trunk that get worse when I go out in the heat or get dehydrated. I’ve had a lot of trouble sleeping, likely due to guilt and shame and worry about the future.   so I got one test done at 10 days from the event (idk know if this can tell me anything… the doctor assured me it was 100% correct and I don’t have herpes. I was not physically examined). I got a full panel std. neg for everything. HSV-1 results: IgG 0.3 / HSV-2 IgG 0.9 hsv-1 IgM = 2.2 hsv-2 IgM = 3.0 (Reference V. Negative: Less than 9.0 Borderline: 9.0 to 11.0 Positive: Greater than 11.0) I have an appointment with my GP on Thursday, hoping he can help. Will likely go to a std testing service tomorrow to see if I can get in an antiviral proactively. Plan to get tested again this week.

      May 13 ( day I will never forget).. a guy I was dating and I drank way to much and decided to have anal sex. We did use protection however, not enough lube, wasn’t done correctly and it was painful. So bad that I yelled out and fell off the bed. Anyway, oral was also performed on me anal and vaginal. Flash forward to 3-4 days after that. I was in the most intense pain I had ever felt. I went to a gyn she tool one look and said it looks like herpes. She swabbed me . 2 days after that, yes it’s HSV1 . I was still in pain, irritated anal area and vaginal area and It was unbearable.  today, I still have irritation and itchy and when I pass a bowel i’m in pain and the itch is crazy.     When I first was diagnoses the gyn gave me valtrex which I did not take bc I was in so much pain I could not move for 2 days.  Groin lymphs were swollen I had fever , tired etc.  I am wondering if I had taken the valtrex would it have kinda liked stopped the virus in it’s tracks enough to reproduce? Do people see a correlation between no more outbreaks and immediate initial valtrex  use ? I am 43, I never thought this wound happen as I am not a promiscuous person, I hardly date and I always use protection when I do have intercouse , have yearly std tests. I’m just so sad that i’m at this point right now . I’m trying not to get depressed but this is making my body feel miserable. I’m an avid runner and biker and mom of two teens. I feel like my life as I knew is over. I want to feel better already.
