Please help.... I'm panicing

Recommended Posts


How can you spread herpes?

I am recently infected. Two weeks ago my 5 year old son had surgery on his penis.

After surgery - everytime he went to the bathroom we had to put neosporin on the tip of his penis. I was careful and washed my hands before everytime. EXCEPT once in the middle of the night - I was half awak - he went potty - I grabbed the neosporin and put it on - and then quickly realized I had not washed my hands and that I had probably touched myself downthere because I was in the middle of an outbreak and it itched.

Could I have spread it to him - OMG he is only 5 and I'm freaking out.

What kind of horrible mother am I??? Is it possible that I could have given it to him.

We are twelve days out and I keep asking him if his penis burns, etc. Then today he said it hurt him to pee twice - once yesterday and once today. I dont know if he was serious or not. Because I was asking him a lot.

He just went pee and said it didn't hurt at all. I'm confused and panicked.......

Soap and water left on hands a few seconds kills herpes. Likely you didn't. To put your mind at ease, buy a box of gloves, and wash hands and put gloves on before applying ointment.

      Diagnosed a year ago. Tried suppression therapy to no avail. Dr prescribed 500mg Valtrex increased to 1000g no help. Two HIV test negative. The worst experience ever. Tried oil of oregano, olive leaf extract, lysine, Multi vitamin. Just read because I’m peri menopausal it might be hormones. Outbreaks are constant hsv 2.  If anyone can can relate, I’m pleading for insight.

      Hi walkthetalk can you please give us more details about your experience with synergy as for how long you been in it, you mention you didn’t get outbreaks do you still feel the flares etc, are you planing to get retested?

      The medications are mainly based on disrupting replication. I am not aware of medications for herpes with the purpose of reducing antibodies directly. Do you have an example?

      I've been reading up on alot of this and I'm just curious about the meds they offer here. They stop it from replicating and others keep the antibodies down. Just a thought and I'd appreciate any input on this. Wouldn't you much rather have high antibodies for this so the immune system can keep it at bay. Or am I all the way off?
