a positive about having herpes

One good thing about having herpes for me, is I'm taking special care of myself, loving myself more.

It's easy to get stressed out, lack nutrition, sleep, exercize, etc.

I can't do that with my herpes. If I get stressed, I get an outbreak. If I neglect my vitamins, I get an outbreak. Woe is me. I guess I have to soak in more bubble baths, sleep-in more often, and pamper myself every chance I get.

Taking Care of Me

Yes, that is so true! Stress is not good! I just was diagnosed with Herpes last April 2003. I just told me first boyfriend after this last night. He didn't know that much about it and I don't either. I just started looking at this site Thursday, Nov. 13. Is there a listserv group for this when everyone e-mails each other for support. I need support and information. I sent out an e-mail on Thursday and no one responded.

I have been under a lot of stress lately. As I said in my post, Thursday (This is Topaz) I have acid relux, allergies, I had to put one of my cats to sleep in August and my Dad got lost in September. Right after this I had an episode. I started taking Valtrex this week for prevention because I didn't want to have an outbreak when I first started fooling around with my new boyfriend. I don't know what is going to happen now. He said he is going to speak to his doctor as well.

Thanks for your support. If you would like, you can respond to me at my address, LisaBinNY@aol.com.

Thanks and have a good day.

It WILL help you to better yourself. It has me and I haven't been diagnosed yet but I'm pretty sure I have it. I am getting to know God again and to try to forgive myself and have confidence in myself. It is very hard but in a wierd way I think this will help me to become a better person and have the healthly relationships that I've never had.

      Hey @Zrozpaczona9 that looks like folliculitis to me, that’s independent of the question of herpes. The doctor is wrong in the sense that a negative IgG test is beyond reasonable doubt that you do not have herpes. It is a small percentage of people for which a false negative occurs. The doctor is right to take a swab to increase your confidence that there’s no herpes present. I’m sure you’ll have your result soon.

      Hey @WilsoInAus miałam dzisiaj wizytę u dermatologa, gdyż dostałam zmian w pachwinie, w trakcie wakacji nad morzem. Udałam sie tam ze zmianami w postaci strupów. Powiedział ze nie można wykluczyć opryszczki mimo negatywnego wyniku Hsv igg i zalecił wymaz z pochwy na Hsv i inne choroby. Wytłumaczyłam mu że zmiany zamieniają się w strup, ale nie ma w nich płynu, więc zalecił badanie śluzu pochwy na hsv PCR, zastanawiam się czy ma to sens, i czy wirusa można wykryć na podstawie tego badania w wydzielin z szyjki macicy. Z góry dziekuje za pomoc

      In this forum we will discuss does lume work Lume is paraben-free and uses several natural ingredients like Aloe barbadensis leaf juice, tapioca starch, and Maranta arundinacea root powder (also known as arrowroot powder) to control odor and sweat. One of the key Lume deodorant ingredients is mandelic acid, an AHA found in skin care products, which also has an antibacterial effect.

      Ibuprofen medicine is a painkiller. Can you take ibuprofen on an empty stomach  Some people take medicine empty stomach which is not good for our health. Because painkiller kind of medicine is very strong and can harm your liver. Medicine makes many strong ingredients. like Lactose, corn starch, hypromellose, sodium starch glycolate, colloidal anhydrous silica, magnesium stearate, sucrose, talc, titanium dioxide (E171), and carnauba wax.

      Never had a history of Oral cold sores before, but have dated someone with them.  Thats very interesting about the test. This was my first full panel.  The large bumps have recently show up, its been about a few weeks when I noticed them. Again no pain nor fluids from them.
