Some people just get very different symptoms. All as I know for me is that they become itchy and scab a certain way that is different to a pimple. . And they do hurt differently to a pimple that scabs and get sore. Usually they will appear in the same spot but can be in a different area within the genital region. I guess I wouldn't worry too much because if it does come up to be a herpes outbreak it certainly won't be as bad as your first outbreak and you can treat it pretty quickly with antivirals or just let it heal itself whistle tea tree oil for example but if you're in a relationship you do want to be aware of what is viral shedding and what is a normal itch. . Look at it is going to turn into an outbreak it won't be as bad as your first and also you Can Heal it pretty quickly with antiviral meds or even applying tea tree oil for example but if you were in a relationship you need to be aware that it could be viral shedding. Eventually you will get to know your own symptoms
Ive been on here many times, being told many times i do not have hsv2. But i just cannot move on.. Im sorry for bothering u all but i just dont know how to move on. Tested negative igg 2 days, 4 week swab, igg neg at 10 weeks and 16 weeks/120 days. I think the swab may have been too late, they were pre existing bumps that never went away but then suddenly caused some pain and then later erupted and there was blood and some pus I believe. I feel like it wasnt herpes but idk. I had some red bump 2 weeks after exposure on my penis. It didnt seem to have pus, never saw it pop or anything. Took 4 weeks to fully go away, didnt hurt to touch after awhile and it just became darker and then disappeared but idk if it scabbed. Then weeks later i had another bump, it was yellow and looked it couldve had pus. I examined it closely and saw the hair in it, concluding it was an ingrown hair. After 4 days it disappeared only leaving a red area for a day or 2. Then a few weeks later another bump like it showed up but disappeared the same day i found it. Month later, yellow smaller one on my thigh, 4 days or so the yellowness disappeared but left a dark red spot. Then last week i had a yellow bump that was kinday itchy and kinda hurted touch on my shoulder. Few days and all was left was a dark red area. The only thing i can rule this out to be now, is that o have recurring folliculitis due to my increased stress and anxiety causing problems for my immune system to effectively stop folliculitis outbreaks. Ive never had things like this on my body before. Idk i hear 3 months is indeed conclusive but reading other posts and their info and contradicting results, it scares me. I am trying to get past this. Ik my type of exposure is low or no risk but idk. This experience has been so very traumatizing for me. What do u think this all can be if not herpes? Im sorry wilsoinaus if u read this, i just dont know, im just struggling so much to get past this..
Lisajd, Is it possible for recurring outbreaks to not itch, tingle, burn, or hurt at all? If so, how likely? My trouble with differentiating is that my pimples seem to itch very minutely also scab over.
yes, I also think it depends on the source of your previous outbreaks?
For me, I got outbreaks on my upper thigh, so when/if my upper thigh is exposed to the sun for an extended period, a rash will start to form.
Noooo its millions.
Yes it travels up neurons and if it enters a neuron cell with your original HSV-2 it will find a full ICP-0.... that could be really bad. I don't know if his stuff is as clean as he thinks it is.
In experiments in humans in the past when a person who already has HSV is injected with HSV amplicons (attenuated virus) their levels go up, but its a fraction compared to someone without HSV.
Maybe, Genocea showed asymptomatic people recognize more antigens than symptomatic people. However, take a look at this as subjects 17, 3, 29, etc. have an immune response which is always in flux. Thus when you get injected with a live attenuated vaccine may determine your response to a live vaccine shot....
Your immune system after infection basically establishes a tolerance to the virus which is hard to move the needle on. I would recommend if you get the Halford shot to accordingly take multiple shots over your reactivation cycle so your body is no doubt recognizing everything it should...
