We both have HSV-2 - what about infecting new sites on our bodies?

Recommended Posts


We both have HSV-2 (both diagnosed by IGG blood antibody tests). I (male) rarely get outbreaks and use acyclovir, supplements and diet to suppress any outbreaks. She rarely gets outbreaks, and they have been on the side of her body along her waistline, but until recently, not vaginally (at least not that she was aware).

Today, it appears she has some sores on the inside of her vagina. Everything we have read says we cannot reinfect each other, but what about creating new infection sites FROM each other? One information source on a web site said this was rare, but not impossible. It is also possible that she simply wasnt aware of the vaginal outbreaks. We are in a long-distance relationship, so sex is limited to weekends only, when we are together. So, maybe she wasnt even aware, and sexual activity simply aggravated it?

Any help here would be appreciated. Links to good sites for this specific information, or comments from you guys...

Hey Will, yes h 2 can outbreak anywhere in that boxer shorts area. Unfortunatly for us females, it can be internally as well. Tell her to get some Epsom salts for her bath waters. I have have ghsv2 for 25 years. You are correct you cannot reinfect each other with h2 genitally, but you can still outbreak anywhere in that genital area. This h lays in the Spinal Ganglia Nerves system, base of spine, so therefore the ob can be anywhere in or on that area. Maybe this ob is from stress?. This time of year brings on tons of stresses. Take care and you will make it ;) . Hugs, Truly, Ace

I was in a relationship with a positive woman for almost three years. There was no "migration" of infection sites. There were outbreaks most likely triggered by hormonal changes though, like when we started having sex after a long dry spell and she started wearing her "happy patch" again. The long distance thing has also most likely caused some changes in your diet and sleep habits? If she's got the antibodies then you can save the cost of the acyclovir, it's not your virus causing the obs. H is also frequently misdiagnosed, or other ailments are thought to be h check with a doctor if you want to be sure.

      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
