Outbreak for almost a year, help!

Recommended Posts

Seffers

Hello, I have only had sex once and that was in January of last year, I can't remember when I first noticed the outbreak but it was a while ago and I figure that I must've contracted the virus from that, I am an 18 year old male however I have not been diagnosed with Herpes although I'm almost certain it is the virus. The herpes is situated on my thighs around my genitals however they're not as bad as they look on the web! They're bumps on my thigh that itch a lot and when I do itch (I know I shouldn't) the bumps get bigger, I've had this for a while now as I said before however I've been scared to do anything about it however I'm now in a relationship with a very lovely girl however she's also had no sexual activity and therefore won't be the most understanding gal when I tell her I have herpes, I really need some advice on this situation and wanted to know if there have been any similar outbreaks that have lasted far longer than expected, like myself... I dont take any medication regulary, don't drink alcohol very often at all however I smoke cannabis once a week, most weeks. Any help would be great an I'd really appreciate it!

From a very scared guy!

Hi Seffers ---

The first thing I will tell you is that it is unlikely for Herpes simplex to cause an outbreak that lasts a year. Experts on STIs would be quick to tell you that is not what is causing your symptoms.

Many other conditions can mimic Herpes simplex symptoms (and vice versa). Based on what you have described, a couple of very likely possibilities are yeast overgrowth infection (sometimes called jock itch) or genital warts.

The only way to know what you are really dealing with is to seek actual medical care. If you have current symptoms, the doctor can take a sample to be tested. Without current symptoms, you can get TYPE SPECIFIC IgG-based Herpes antibody (blood) tests for BOTH HSV-I and HSV-II.

Don't let a doctor try to decide whether or not you have HSV just by looking at it. You need bona fide laboratory testing to be sure of that.

      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
