New to this and not sure where it came from / protecting partner

Recommended Posts

charleigh

Recently had a pretty bad outbreak, my very first.

With a partner for a few years, he's never had any symptoms whatsoever. Has had a coulurful past sexually, but clean std tests.

We broke up once for 3 months in which he had unprotected oral sex with a random.

Since then Ive had an active HPV infection and now an outbreak of painful blisters.

So did the virus come from me or him? Should he be protecting himself? Should we be sexually active while tests results come in?

Am I missing something? I really dont understand it all.

Hey charleigh, welcome to our site :wavey: . If either of you have ever had previous sex partners, either one of you could or even both of you, could have carried herps for many years and just never knew. Most Std panel test Do Not test for h. It's crazy I know, but you must request the herps specific blood test called the Igg. Most Dr do Igm. I have ghsv2 for 24 years I stayed dormant for 23 years, just had a second outbreak. I'm ghsv2.my husband of 22 years is a non h man. I only had one other partner before I married my first hubby, he was my giver, so I considered myself safe because I was married. We were together for 5 years. He cheated, I got h, then got divorced. Is your h type h1 or h2 genital? Many women get their genital h from oral sexy times. Has he or you ever had a cold sore, that's h1. Are you on antivirals? Also how did you test? These test have numeric values, numbers, some believe these numbers can give an idea of possible length with with h. Like newly exposed or years with it. There is a website www.medhelp.org , address your questions and these test results to a Dr.Grace., she will explain them to you in detail. Also here is a book www.westoverheights.com , please read all you can, get educated and educate him too. Please feel free to ask any and all questions here in the forum. You can visit live Chat too. Take care. Truly, Ace :hithere:

You don't say how long ago he left the relationship then came back or exactly how bad your o/b was. What was the time frame of last having sex with him and your o/b?

Were your sores scraped and cultured and did you have blood testing?

      Hey @Catalyst4 and welcome to the website. There is no relationship between lichen planes or psoriasis to herpes. Follow the treatment recommended by your doctor. If steroids it is then have no worries regarding herpes.

      Hi all - I’ve been getting weird recurrent redness on my glans since January. I foolishly had unprotected sex and this nightmare started a week or so later. It starts off as a small circle of redness that turns oval and then spreads. There is no bump or no fluid and it doesn’t itch and is not painful. It also gets flaky like psoriasis after a week or so then the skin becomes shiny and thick.  I got a biopsy that said it was possible Lichen Planus. But was a herpes infection responsible for triggering it? I had a swab when the inflammation was at it’s worse and it came back nEgative for herpes but I think it was done way too late. My dermatologist says it’s not herpes- but this all started after an unprotected sex encounter so I think it’s related to some infection somehow. It did go away completely with doxycycline and cortisone cream only to come back a couple of weeks later after finishing  the medication .  I’m set to get my blood test in a few weeks but that will only tell me if I’ve been exposed to HSV, not that the redness is actually HSV.  If it is HSV and it’s causing the Lichen Planus or psoriasis how do I treat it? Steroids will make me more susceptible to further outbreaks Does anyone get this shiny skin as well with their outbreak that does not go away on its own? i have pics I’m trying to upload but the size limitation is a problem ...

      Hi @hi202020 note that all immune disorders of over activity are related to the immune system attacking the body tissue. They can be highly serious issues such as: lupus, multiple sclerosis, diabetes (type 1), Hasimoto’s etc. Prostadynia is an umbrella term for a number of issues in the genital region. Often you are able to drill down to a more specific cause but sometimes not. The issues in the umbrella are such things as prostatitis, pudenal nerve ‘entrapment’, erythromelagia and fibromyalgia to name a few.

      The burning (neuralgia, neuropathy) is common...unfortunately even doctors don't know if it means your shedding or not....not necessarily though. There are a lot of nerve issues with herpes...it's way more a nerve issue than a skin issue. Do the antivirals help you?

      Short of something none of us knows about that comes completely out of left field (which is entirely possible), our best bet on something anytime soon is Pritelivir....hopefully it works as well as we all hope.
