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 :)

      I didn't even get a sorry.  The only thing that makes me feel a little better is I made sure he lost his job. Further, sociopaths are found in high levels of politics, CEO's and cops. He was a cop.

      I would say having sex w/o disclosing is sociopathic if he knew.  Doing it with no condom on top is 2x sociopathic. Again.  It does not make him one.  Look up sociopathic behavior.  They dont typically intentionally try to injure.  They have zero regard for other humans.  All about pleasure and manipulate to get what they want.  We all have behaviors that are.     Showing a lack of remorse or shame. The DSM-V entry on antisocial personality disorder indicates thatsociopaths lack remorse, guilt or shame. RED FLAG #5. Staying eerily calm in scary or dangerous situations.

      I do suspect people.  Especially after the last girl arguing that "STI tests" that I would pay for wouldnt catch bacterial stuff.  I told her they test for bacterial STI's, too.  I refused to accept her saying she had nothing and that I would forget about testing.  I respect both myself and her more than to back down, there. I am not desperate and stupid.  I had told her I hadnt had a date in 2 months.  So she prob thought I was.....  Even if I hadnt dated for 5 yrs, I respect myself first.  Anyway.  It wasnt until I completely insisted that she disclosed.  People just know when you are serious.  They arent stupid.

      The most amazing thing just happened! @Chip Clark re-tweeted all of these tweets (https://twitter.com/TheChipClark).  I have never seen an CEO so involved in helping a community like this.  He really wants change for us and wants to see the HSV community get better treatments.  Today is a great opportunity for all of us to make a big impact.  I don't mean to spam anyone, but I want people to see this! A lot of people know other people with the disease.  There's a lot of support out there.   @crisper @GlitterDx @Norwegian123 @dont quit!17 @Sean123 @OhFuckMyDickHurts @Whyyyyy @SD777 @MoniqueLow @jreemi @eva13 @EyeOpener @Untouchable1 @Constant Diplomat @jpg @silverdream @LiveLife100 @LucyLevi @Elle22 @HC-Support-Team @LillianPanos @Ajuda @Malcolm @Mackie82 @Atrapasueños @JJ2017 @Rational Vaxxer @RVX Patient and Investor @Theblues @Smart_1 Please post here and get the attention of other users with the "@" sign with their username on HC so they can see what we are doing and how they can contribute!   We may have had differences in our views on some things, but we can all get on board for this!

      How would less people get HSV with better education? Certainly I remember sex-ed very well and was told that the majority of people have oral HSV-1 and that it doesn't cause symptoms in 80% of people, even if transmitted to the genitals. To the teenagers this is taught to, the reaction is either that of disbelief (and fear or such = "I don't want to get it!") or it would be a complete disregard for HSV-1 as a concern as it's to prevalent & insignificant to worry about ("I probably have it..or will get it. I want to kiss boys/girls and I want oral sex."). In this way education poorly characterizes the disease, but it certainly should be eliminating the stigma more than it is.. The stigma exists because a) it's gross and b) it's unfamiliar (no one really hears about, or talk about HSV.). Stigmas are very very hard to eradicate..The only way to eradicate the HSV stigma would be to follow Ella Dawson's lead and keep putting real people behind HSV!  Coming out of sex-ed class, HIV, Hep-C and HSV-2 were really the only viruses to fear. HPV, EBV, CMV and HSV-1 where basically communicated as viruses we'd all get...

      Thank you. He knew he had it and didn't disclose. Did he intentionally try to infect me. I'm not sure. Did he convince me how clean he was and how he always always uses condoms so that I would agree not to use one. I believe he did. Does this make him a sociopath?  To me. Yes. Am I stupid because I believe what he said to me. Yes. But I never went through life thinking what people tell me are lies. I believe them unless they show me differently. At the end of the day this guy was a pathological liar. Why did this happen to me?  Why was he put in my path in life?  I wonder every day. It's been over a year and I'm waiting for a cure to come.
