I hope someone can answer your questions. I called the doctor again today and requested a culture, he told me if they're still there call Monday. So, like you I feel very concerned. It doesn't look like a rash, but an ob and is only on her labia. Is this where your daughter gets them? How were you able to get them to test her? I'm being dismissed in my opinion as its just a rash. I have found one picture online of an infant with hsv2 that looks like my daughters sores but the picture has a larger area of ob. Is this what your daughters looks like and is located too? I personally was misdiagnosed with razor burn by a lady at Planned Parenthood... Who sees stds all the time. So the likelihood of a pediatrician being wrong is pretty high as it is uncommon to see.
@Blondii Yeah I don't know about any of that. Based on your symptoms though it does sound like a hsv outbreak. It would be good to know which one you have though. Hsv 1 or 2 since the shedding rates vary as well as the chance of outbreaks.
@cryptkeeper Thank you, it's getting better. And you're right... Dude must just be shitty and ignorant lol. They did not swab the sores. However, my results from the pap came back with abnormalities and I suppose they did further research and managed to diagnose me that way. Which I'm not denying in considering my terrible outbreak. I just didn't know it was possible to diagnose that way
I'm really sorry you're going through this. The good news is your recurrent outbreaks shouldn't be nearly as bad. The fact the guy didn't disclose and now won't respond is beyond rude but unfortunately thats how shitty ignorant people are. Sadly there is lot of people who don't know they have it or don't care enough to actually tell the person if they do. Did they swab the sores for an official diagnosis? Hang in there.
I'm actually in the same situation as you are, and have seen many doctors pertaining this.. But every MD I see states that my child would be very sick by now and probably would have died.. But I keep reading about cases where meningitis and encephalitis went undiagnosed and the only way they were apparent was when the child wasn't meeting big milestones and that's what scares me.. It also scares me that she keeps having outbreaks and they are being taken care off.. Any one know if my child had contracted hsv from me from birth, and had hsv meningitis or encephalitis would it be very obvious and would she by now have gotten worse with all these outbreaks? Also the tests that they have done on her were swabs month of age.. PCR of the blood at 3 months of age.. And igm and igg antibody test of blood also.. All of which were negative.. But it also scares me that the virus just wasn't present when they did these tests or it wouldn't of been picked up by these tests and the most accurate test (spinal tap) is what they are refusing to do because they state that she would not look/act this good.. Can someone with experience please help?
