Hello my name is Katherine and i am 21.

On December 2nd i noticed an mildly irritating itch down stairs so i grabbed a mirror and took a look. To my surprise there was a row if very tiny pimple looking bumps. I dealt with it for that day and the next day. I did all kinds of research on the topic and everything kept popping up was "genital herpes" So a little freaked i ran to my doctors where she a swab of the bumps and said i had to wait for the results in a week or so. She put me on valtrex just in case. It all started on the 2nd and ended today, the 7th. The itching and bumps are gone. I had no other symptoms and still don't. I am still taking the pills and I am going to wait to here from my doctor but I am scared and have no one to talk to.

I doubt that is what it is usually the first outbreak you will have a full body reaction to it. It burns and lot of people feel really sick as well. It's like chickpox not sure if you had that before its the same virus family you get a fever and basically feel lousy.

Well I got my results back today and i tested positive and I am pretty heart broken. My husband is still convinced its not herpes because my 1st and only outbreak only lasted 4 days and was only a few bumps with no other symptoms. I tested positive for type 2 and a mild yeast infection so as if the herpes wasn't the only thing right? My doctor said since i am so young and my 1st outbreak was so mild that she doesn't want to put me on a continuous treatment but she is giving meds for just in case i get another outbreak. I guess that's a good thing? But i have a few questions and i would really like if ya'll could help and inbox me if you'd rather talk there but yeah here it goes....

1. since my 1st our break was in one small spot is that where it will only pop up on my vagina?

2. if i don't touch it will that help it not spread to my bottom or thighs?

3. what are somethings that have triggered an outbreak for you or can generally cause one?

4. What are home based things i can do to keep an out break at bay or help shorten its time?

5.How does herpes affect your work life? i mean can work be bearable with an outbreak?

I have excepted the fact that I have them (i kinda did that already when i got tested) so the shock was not too bad when she told me i tested positive. I just want to try and live a normal life and be happy. I know it can be done because when those bumps went away it was life was normal again. And i know that its only going to be hard when i have a flare up. My husband doesn't want to except it but he said either way he loves me and will never leave me and we will still have a normal sex life which makes me feel great. He has apologized for cheating and giving it to me. I am so thankful you are all there for me and you dont even know me. Thank you so much

      That’s right, most infections of the one type are in one nerve ganglion. As such, the virus only appears at the skin’s surface where that ganglion reaches to.  This does all come down to the numbers though, if you have no other evidence than a firmly positive HSV infection, the default assumption which is not likely to be wrong is that type 1 is oral and type 2 is genital. A positive swab is the only evidence to the contrary.

      I was having back to back OB's and decided to try several things I had read about here.  The first one was instant gratification:  oil of oregano diluted with fractionated coconut oil.  I could feel another OB coming, tingles, and just spread the oil all over the area.  In a few minutes the tingle was gone.  The lesions and red scarring i had responded well to it too.  Went away promptly.  The second thing was diet.  A person on this forum said they had good results by eating more vegetables, some fruit, meat and mostly using potatoes for carbs.  Like, leaving grains alone.  I decided to leave wheat alone and use other grains occasionally.  I no longer eat chocolate, nuts, seeds, coconut, oats, as these r all potential triggers for an OB.  I take 1000 mg lysine 2 x day in case i unknowingly eat some food that is high in arganine.  So far so good.  Another person on this forum said she took neem capsules 2 x day and hadnt had another outbreak in 2 years.  So i do that too.  It hasnt been long enough for me to make any great claims, but the continuous, never ending breakouts have stopped, i have energy and feel good.

      Is it possible to catch HSV 2 somewhere else other than the penis... And if so does this mean you will not transmit from that area?

      I wouldnt want to give anyone info that they might decide to use against me at some point.  U must tell those that u must tell, but otherwise, i would only unburden myself anonymously, like on a forum.  No judgment or harm here.

      Could you recommend any decent treatment if you know of any?
