Could this be an outbreak?

Recommended Posts


Ok ive been living with HSV2 for about 8 months. All of my outbreaks since then have been genital. A couple of days ago I notice I a bumb under one of my bottom teeth and just thought ok I have an abcess. But yesterday it popped open and is now like and open sore (like herpes outbreak starts as a bumb then it ruptures) I was wondering could this be an outbreak which would be disheartening because I have never had one in my mouth before and thought since HSV2 is genital I wouldn't have to worry about that. And if it is why would it show in my mouth for the first time when I've had it for 8 months. I know herpes can jump but all of the research I read said only HSV1 skipped from area to area. Can someone please give me some advice. I'm trying not to get upset in case I just injured my gum with my toothbrush or something but the thought of this jumping from place to place makes me so sad, having it in one area is bad enough let alone two. 

If it is herpes, it is more likely you have hsv1 orally and hsv2 genitally, than hsv2 both orally and genitally. Oral hsv2 is rare, and usually if you get it, you get it in both places at the same time. You could get the sore swabbed to be sure, or get a blood test later. However, there are a lot of other things that can cause bumps and sores orally. So perhaps ask a doctor.

      Anyone know anything about potential side effects?

      You obviously can’t read. Why don’t you actually read the article, or the excerpt I posted? Here it is even simpler for you: prostaglandins were shown to enhance the spread of herpes virus in cell culture 26 27 and to inhibit interferon production 27 28 and were implicated in the reactivation of herpetic skin lesions.

      Hormones definitely affect HSV outbreaks according to research. I'm a male but on anti-estrogen medication in constant trouble. Have a look at my thread here: https://honeycomb.click/topic/76903-over-4-years-with-hsv-2-symptoms-keep-getting-worse-with-non-stop-outbreaks-despite-suppressive-therapy-need-help/ 

      First page, 8th post with studies about E2 / Progesterone effects on HSV.

      It's getting pretty terrible now, I don't ever remember the last time I was feeling normal. I'm so sick of this constant flu-like feeling that makes me depressed and very unproductive. I have so many ideas and ambitions for life but I end up just doing the bare minimum due to constantly feeling like shit.  A week ago I tried stopping my anti-estrogen medication if that could have been the cause (it states "infection" in the listed, common side effects). Had my hopes up for a day or two but just got another outbreak this week that makes me want to sleep in bed all day. On top of this, now my breasts hurt because of increased E2 levels. 

      I guess I still have some hopes with new research drugs such as Crispr and Amenalief. I would order Amenalief from Japan immediately, but it costs more than my monthly rent.. I might have to start a business on top of my full time job so I can afford it. Better option than self-pity but extra stress will surely not help with the HSV2 ;)

      Probably the therapy with SADBE helps us to develop a partial immune system on HSV. If you use more SADBE you will develop more immune system on HSV. This is most likely a mechanism of action.
