Looking to talk about HV2. I have never participated in an online form b4.

Small Town Lady

Hello everyone,

I have been living in silence about this infection for about 4 years. The stigma around it has made it impossible to share this diagnosis with even my closest friends. Two years ago I was able to begin a relationship with a person who does not have HV2 and was able to share the diagnoses with him. Although he is supportive, I have never had the opportunity to have a meaningful, open conversation with others going through the same thing. I am not tech savvy and have never participated in an online form before and don't really know how to use it. I was so excited when I found this site because for the first time in a long time, i feel a sense of hope. I have many questions and feelings inside regarding this virus and don't even know where to start. Most of all, I am excited to hear other people's stories.

Hi Small Town Lady!

I am very glad you found this site! You will find many resources, articles, and personal stories that you can associate with. I felt very welcomed here and there are lots of folks in the chat room that will cheer you up when you are feeling down. I love going to the chat room in the mornings with my cup of coffee and having a few laughs to start my day!

Try to stay positive and always ask questions!! We are all here for a reason, and I'm so happy that I found this site as well!

Take Care

Let me welcome you to the forums! I have been living with HSV2 for four to five years now, but I got diagnosed with it through a blood test middle of Aug. I am a lurker in the chat room almost perpetually, and I promise I don't bite... unless you want me to. Anyways, I don't know if you want me to post my whole story here for the world to see, but I can if you want me to. Its an interesting story to say the least, and I find myself often in a very strange place regarding my relationship with GHSV2.

PM or catch me in chat if you'd like to chat.

Even though I have had this virus for so long, I am only now beginning to realize what it means to me and trying to process this. i defiantly have a lot to learn and hope I gain as much from this site as you guys have. I have never used a chat room before so this might be interesting lol

      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
