When Is This GOING AWAY!


Recommended Posts

I have had GH for 10 yrs and usually go through a prodrome phase once every 2 yrs or so. BUT, this actual OB has lasted for 4 weeks. I have taken more valtrex than i can stand and still it won't budge. The lesions i get never start out as blisters, they just appear. I never go thru the "weeping" and "scabbing" up. Thank god these lesions aren't painful at all. Seriously has anyone else ever had an OB last this long??

I just started getting an outbreak myself and i am so depressed right now. I'm trying not to stress over it becasue i dont want the stress to make it any worse.

This will be my third outbreak since i got this virus last year september.

I am so upset right now. I REALLY hope it goes away fast, my last outbreak lasted for about a month but my first lasted only 12 days.

Any encouraging words would help right now. This sucks so bad.

Thank goodness there is a forum like this to go to! I have learned so much and now know that my 5 weeks of ob is not unheard of. Not happy to know that anyone else suffers for SO long but my dr. would have me think that Im a freak of nature. I am very tired from the tingling and subsiquent itching waking me up at night. Also still battling fatigue for about 4 weeks and loss of appetite. I wish you well . Ms.

My OBs sound like Boxofrain's.. I just get small blisters, no crusting, no scabbing. But I do get those annoying twitches and spasms. This thing is a steady killer...

I've had SEVEN outbreaks since Jan 1st!!!!! Normally only one, tiny sore (no crusting etc - it doesn't actually look too bad and practically no pain). But the fact it's THERE just keeps me preoccupied with this fucking virus.

BUT - 20 days and no outbreak -bring it on!!!!!!!!!!! (Not literally of course :) )

And as for triggers - there's no pattern to it. For example been VERY stressed recently yet no outbreak.

maybe your consuming too much sugar...herpes LURRRRRRRRRRRRRRVE them some sugar.

cut out the sweeties and the choc-o-late.

ease up off the salt too.

eat rabbit food for 2 weeks, that may infact help. try not to "feed" the virus.

less margerine, more olvie oil

less soda, lots of water (with a teaspoon of ocean sea salt in there)

cleanse that boday hunny

u shall soon feel good

      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.
