Outbreaks on both sides of the body

11 posts in this topic

Does anyone get outbreaks on both sides of their body? I know herpes is not supposed to cross the mid-line but I know some of my outbreaks do. I always get neuropathy just before an outbreak. The tingling starts at the spine then progresses down to my butt. When i get outbreaks on my left side i can also feel tingling in my right side as well. I just want to know if anyone else gets this as well.

Hey notlivinglife, welcome to our site. Let us help you start living again ok. I get the prodrome symptoms in the base of my tail bone along my spine. It is where the H lives , anywhere in the boxer shorts area..It is possible to get these tingles on one side or both even if you are in an outbreak. Now can I ask what you mean by "midline" , because there are no rules with H.. Here is a book, www.westoverheights.com , it has many great pieces of informations in it to answer some of your H questions. Please stop by Chat and talk with some who have these same issues with H.

Take care, Ace. :)

Hello Ace and thanks for the reply. I know there is no "normal" with hsv from reading many posts. I was wondering if people get outbreaks on both sides of their body. From what i have read Herpes is not supposed to cross the mid-line after the primary outbreak. Meaning only on one side of the body not both. I seem to have small outbreaks sometime on both butt cheeks. I get nerve pain in both legs. Kinda like sciatic pain or piriformis pain. I just hope i'm not immunocomprimised having these types of outbreaks. Most are just on my left side but the severe ones occur on both. Anyone ever get this? Thanks in advance

I believe you are referring to herpes zoster (shingles), which is not supposed to cross the midline. Herpes simplex can definitely occur on both sides and I think it does in almost everyone that has it.

Hey thank you for explaining the midline thing. My outbreak was all over the vajjay (both sides) and on both sides(inside) the Butt crack.. eww ,gross I know but true. I just didn't know anything of H back then.. I am so happy we have so much informations like we do today. What a wonderful way to meet and get support and get educated from each other. Thanks Sally, I needed translations, lol... I am 49 and learning daily. Truly, Ace :)

Hello Sally, all of the information i read says that after your primary(first) outebreak herpes will pick one side of the body and the following(recurring) outbreaks will be limited to that side of the body. Do your outbreaks occur on both sides? Anyone else feel free to help me out with this. Thanks

I'm just getting over my first outbreak of genital hsv-1 and it was on both sides. It started on the lower right side of my vagina, progressed up the right labia, across the clit area, down the left side, then finally a couple in the rectal area. After about a week of the lesions breaking out, I had a day or horribly painful tingling/stinging/burning nerve-type pain in my genital area, buttocks, and down the backs of both thighs. The next day it felt more like tingly numbness rather than being so painful, and today I have the low back pain. It is a little worse on the right side, but definitely there on both sides. I also had swollen lymph nodes in both sides of my groin.

Search the net. Everywhere it says that hsv does not cross midline except in initial ob. I never had it do taht. Lately i get random red bumps (1 at a time or 2 one on each side of butt - no where near each other). They aren't clusters or blisters like ive always had. I have no idea if they are hsv or not and it is driving me nuts. I have had two swabbed and both showed nothing. I have nerve pain in the genitals much o the time with or without ob. It is driving me nuts.

My initial outbreak was from hole to hole, vag and anus h sores, yuckkk!! The second outbreak very small vag area last about 5 days I can't really say what side initially it started on, but second outbreak middle of vag, three or tiny sores. I'm hoping to go dormant again for another 23 years. That's how long it stayed dormant. I've had h for 24 years. Take care, Ace :)

      Posted in another thread, but this may be a question for fellow ladies specifically. I was diagnosed 2 years ago by my doctor who took one look at my downstairs region and said it was herpes, gave me a script for Valtrex and sent me on my way.  My issue is that recently I've been maybe 2 days OB free between reoccurrences within the past several months and it's driving me crazy and putting a damper on my relationship. I take Valtrex 2x a day everyday, lysine, vitamin b, c, d and Zinc. I have cut out alcohol and coffee. I can't understand why it's so frequent when I thought it was supposed to slow down in frequency. Has anyone else had the same issue?  The only thing I can think of that has changed is I stopped my oral contraceptives and had an IUD inserted in March, and the OBs have definitely increased since then. I also have PCOS polycystic ovary syndrome. I have thoughts that maybe my hormones are to blame.  I have an appointment on Tuesday, where I plan to demand a swab, blood tests and hormone level check but I wanted to see if anyone in this community has had the same issues or can shed any light on what could possibly be going on.  Thanks all!!

      Hello there, More than 10 years ago i got infected with HSV virus. It was hard and tough, specially with the dating part. Before we had a free dating website for HSV people in the Netherlands. That site went into defunct. I tried my luck finding other sites so i could find a date. But all sites that i found were paid and possible scams (not giving names). I tried it once and it was a waste of money. Now it happens that i am a tiny bit smart with computers.. the old domain name from the site that we had, was released when the site when into defunct. I registred it, as it was wel know in the Netherlands and i wanted to created a similiar platform. And most of all, free of charge. I think it is unethical to run a business and make profit out of the misery of other people. Normally i don't have much time because i work fulltime and it is killing me at times. But during my summer holiday i had the time to take up the project and setup a free dating site again under the same domain. It is using a free dating script and it is based in the Netherlands. But as the dating script has a language selection, you can easily switch from Dutch to English. All countries are supported. The site is free and is not commercial. I am the operator. I rebooted the site to help other people to find a partner as i also would like to find a nice girlfriend. I am not sure i can post this message in here, as it seems like advertising, but it is actually not. Im doing volunteering work at my own time and expenses. The site costs money to run. You can find the site overhere: www.hg-dating.nl Everybody is welcome. Regards, hg-dating.nl

      So you're saying I can contract it from the toilet?

      I'm sorry that you're dealing with that. I don't personally have the same issue but, as embarrasing as it is, I do get stinky feet sometimes. I learned that soaking in green tea helps control the smell (Something about the tannins in tea) Maybe you can try to put a few tea bags into your bath tub and take a soak? First, let the bags steep for a minute or two in a cup of hot water, just to get it going, then dump the bags in the tub.  I hope you can figure it out.

      I was just folllowing doctor's order at first and he recommended this IgG and IgM tests since the beginning. After i found this site, i learned that blood tests is inaccurate for hsv. i also never notice if there is an option for a swab test for hsv here in the lab where i got tested. I will ask for second opinion from other doctor and a swab test when the symptomps re-appears. i just want to ask from experienced users about: 1. Is it normal to get negative / borderline IgG blood test result in approx 3 years if u do have hsv?? 2. Is there any other std that have the symptoms of on and off blisters regularly (3 to 4 times a year)??

      I´ve heard  pro-trump arguments from the guys of the kkk with the same logic,knowing that he publicly repudiates the endorsement(in his time),the hypocrisy both have in common its incredible .And before anyone say anything, I know Hillary is a liar. and one more thing, this was supposed to be a CRISPR topic, maybe Im not the right one to say it,  but there are lot of comments about egos,feelings and now politics, that shouldn't be here.

      Hi edcoop. I've had exactly the same condition as you, for me it started when i had sex without condom with my wife in december last year, it was really like a hell time for me. I couldn't even move, just walking was a lot of pain. There was no cure for that condition, they gave me some antibiotics, which didn't help. It kinda went away for itself but it took awhile and the pain unfortunately was overwhelming.  For me the summer helps a lot, when the sunshine makes my balls better in outside. Also hot baths and sauna are REALLY good for testicles. Avoid sex and masturbation when u are in that state. I really wish u and that condition get better, i certainly know the feeling from experience.

      They article didn't post effectiveness of ointment. If the Pritelivir oral med was out; that along with Halfords prophylactic vaccine should do the trick to decrease spread by a lot.
    • dont quit!
      Yes the same President who allowed sales of crack cocaine to the inner cities in order to provide money for Nicaraguan Contras. Who also sold arms illegally to Iran; all while his wife was running the DARE campaign (quite hypocritical). He also ran up a trillion dollar debt and cut taxes for the rich.  I respectfully disagree JB. But thanks for your positivity on the forum. *Reagan also ignored the AIDS epidemic in its first few years of discovery.
