Blessed despite

Is it normal to have itching without sores with this virus? Is this considered an outbreak? I am not in a relationship and do not plan to be for some time but I am strongly considering getting on antivirals as I do not have very many days where everything feels normal even though it looks it. I do realize that I need to be able to recognize the symptoms though I tend to think that everything is HSV 2 related these days. Could use some insight. Thanks

Hey Blessed , yes the itches can be a sign that the virus is active. I get tingles, at the base of spine, and it feels like ants crawling. I get the itches there as well. I have ghsv2 and had anus h also. I take antivirals daily for supressive therapies. I use Vit.b12 complex, It's a sublingual and goes under the tongue. It helps with stresses, gives energy and promotes nerves health. It does give me some relief from those symptoms. But being on antivirals doesn't mean you will supress the symptoms totally. My stress is my biggest trigger, so destressing is very important. I use a lot of aroma therapies and I take anti anxieties medications. I just had a second outbreak almost a year ago. It was stress induced. It was a hard time, my only child went off to college and with husbands job, only home 2 or 3 days a week. I felt very overwhelmed and had 2nd ob in 23 years. My h stayed dormant after my initial outbreak. Imagine my surprise :gigglegiggle: . I love my meds they reduce shedding and supress outbreaks. Hope this helps honey. Take care, Ace :hithere:

      I believe it’s type 2 but apparently either strain can be found either end! So I will hopefully clarify all this in the coming week!

      @WilsoInAus https://forums.herpesopportunity.com/topic/8577-unprotected-sex-and-transmission-of-hsv2-with-no-symptoms/ Here they say we can shed the hsv2 virus up to 35% of the time. We are far from the 4% transmission rate. That rate is not for everyone. So if i always have prodome and i shed more than others my transmission rate is a lot higher than just 4% so please stop spreading false information.

      Unsure whether this is something to be worried about or not. Coming up to 3 weeks now. I’ve been to a sexual health clinic and they said there’s nothing to worry about. I haven’t had sex in 6 months I’ve also never done it without a comdom. There is no fluid in them even when I’ve tried to squeeze them. There’s also 2 of them near my belly button
