positive but no symptoms

Recommended Posts


I had two tests done - both show hsv 2 igg @ 5.62 :( I have absolutely no symptoms but looks like that number puts me out of the false positive range. Not sure if I should go in for the western blot or not ... Thoughts?

I'm worried about my dating life. I'm Indian (in the states) and assume most Indian girls would run away screaming if they knew :( I'm 28, all ready to finally settle down, and boom...

Seems so unfair.

Hi sry to hear that. Just found out I have hsv2 never had symptoms either im 24. I dont know much about the western blot but you could ask in the chat room or another category of the post like the Herpes Tests and Diagnosis section. Dating is difficult in general and I know this makes it harder. I also know that culturally certain things are frowned upon. My family is from the islands culture is different from the states. The only thing I can say is you have to live for you and get passed this. It's gonna be hard but im learning life throws us curve balls and we have to deal. Im trying also. good luck and I hope this site helps you. Im free to talk anytime

Yeah, I just found out I had it after a routine check at the doctor about two months ago. I have never had any symptoms either. I try to be thankful that atleast I don't have horrible outbreaks like some people. I told my dad, and he was very supportive. There are so many more people with it than we realize. Many people are like us and have no symptoms, so they never find out that they have it. You are not alone. Dating will change, but you will find someone. I promise.

      Really wasn't sure which topic to put this in! I'm guessing a lot of you will have seen the recent news that Mel B was rushed to hospital thinking she was blind from her eye herpes.  I know she's not as famous as she used to be, but I really don't understand why celebrities with a big presence aren't doing anything about this, such as fundraising for a cure or even just talking about it to raise awareness. Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think she's ever spoken about it before!  She clearly suffers from some bad symptoms. Thinking that you've gone blind must have been one of the most terrifying experiences, and to me, after that ordeal I would try and do everything in my power to raise awareness and find a cure.  Maybe she just doesn't know about all the vaccination research that's currently happening, and how many of these places need the extra funding to keep going?  Not sure where I'm going with this 😂 But does anyone think it's worth getting in contact with her about raising some awareness?

      Hey @Alda whatever is going on for your arm you can rest assured it is not at all likely to be herpes. Could the blister type things be from the massage causing irritation, perhaps even contact dermatitis? If you aren't seeing improvement soon consider seeing the doctor but it doesn't strike me as anything of much concern.

      I need help; i went and got a massage and 2 days later my upper arm feels super sore and is red with 3 blister type things, each about a small pea size the place I got a massage at was  not very sanitary , it was hot in there and the masseuse was sweating I think (i do have the down south H but haven’t had a breakout in about a year and I still don’t.) my arm does not itch just super sore. I wonder what is on my arm. any ideas?

      It did! There are combinations you can take that will not give you this effect, I just didn't want to do medication anymore. What I am doing https://www.amazon.com/MakingCosmetics-BHT-4-4oz-125g/dp/B01DE780OS read Steve Fowkes free book BHT1/8 t in coconut liquid MCT chain oil. Extremely hard to dissolve. I leave it for a day, must read Steve Fowkes free book online, overdose gets people dizzy! More is not better! Oils will also not get Rancid if you put some in your cooking oils! whole food vitamin, glutamine 3x one gram, suggested by case9 love it DHEA,25mg, most people who breakout have low levels lugols iodine worked way to four drops. Fulvic acid minerals. Thyriod granular meds   When I used to have obs I used monolaurin and st.John s wort. I used diaper rash cream for obs I also still spray genitals with zinc sulfate mixed with water. I learned it kills any virus plus summer sweat won't smell at all!  There is one thing I will not be without and that's BHT and zinc sulfate
