My First Outbreak!!

Recommended Posts

one1love

Hello everyone !

I got this virus (HSV-2) 4 monthes ago, and last weekend I had my first recurrent outbreak:( coz I had the flu 3 days before it. However, it was not that painful ( comparing to the initial one) but the pain was more emotionally ( my Dr said if this appear again .. its herpes) so that was my last hope that its not this virus !!

anyhow, I took pictures every day since i felt it

I contracted the virus around the same time you did. I'm a girl, just turned 30 and have only been with 5 people in my whole life. The last one I thought was a friend but turns out knowingly infected me. I have to tell you, finding someone is also my main concern. I figure I can deal with outbreaks, though honestly I've yet to really have one. Just some weird feelings mainly. Uncomfortable at most. I'm so afraid to infect other people and terrified at the thought of having to tell anyone. Sorry I have no advice, but just wanted to let you know you are not alone.

knowingly infected you !! I don't know how people do something like that intentially !!

I have the same feelings, I'm not worry about my OB..actually I read and asked a lot about this virus and it's just a skin condition and not a big deal, but like you said .. finding someone that you like and have the same condition is really hard. well ..thank you so much for your replay I really appreciate it and good luck sweety.. just keep the hope and you will find a special one soon.

heheheheheh.. one of my favorite signers.. I always feel good when I listen to his music.. RIP.. he is truly a legend.

Have a wonderful day..

Your doctor didn't test it to make sure it is actually HSV??? I would first make them test it to be 100% sure that's what it is. You might be freaking out for no reason. I have definitely had an ob that looks similar to your pictures, so it is not uncommon.

I have had HSV2 since I was 18 (for almost 15 years now) & have had sex partners since then. Everyone has surprisingly not had a problem with it when I told them. I even had a child vaginally within 3 years of contracting HSV2 & he does not get cold sores or anything. My son hasn't even gotten the chicken pox. It's not the end of the world. I understand how devastating it is at first, because just like you, I went through it. But you will learn to live with it. I am 32 now & I really don't even care if people know my business. Don't get me wrong, it is still EXTREMELY hard for me to tell people even to this day. But in the end it gives me peace of mind to know that I let them make the choice of whether they want to have sex with me or not knowing that I have it.

Don't worry, you will definitely find a woman that will accept it. If I can find men that don't mind, you can find women. Women are much more accepting & understanding than men in my opinion. Good luck to you.

Thank you Ree for your replay :)

I had the test after that Dr and they told me it's HSV, but I was hoping it was a mistake in the result.. it was my last hope :(

you are right, it seems like the end when I first know, but know I started to get use to it.

I really hope that I'll find someone understand my situation soon :S

Thank you again :)

Have a wonderful day

You definitely will find someone. Just let them get to know you before you have "the talk". You always want to do that because you never know, YOU might not like the person that much & then that's just another person who knows your business. Plus it lets them get to know the real you. Not just a person who has HSV. When people get to know you & start really actually liking you, they tend to accept it better.

Also, be careful of who you tell your business to. I made the mistake of telling my best friends. Bad idea. Almost all of them told their boyfriend at the time & then of course their boyfriend uses it against me when they got mad. If I could do it again, I would definitely have kept it to myself. Things will get better for you. The longer you have it, the less frequent the obs get & less severe.

One more thing....did you know there are some dating sites for people that have stds? I tried that before but wasnt too comfortable having my picture on the site so it didnt work out too good for me but might be great for you. Just google "herpes dating".

Take care.

      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? 
    • Lulupazoola
      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?
