Just a few questions.

Did any one remain with the person who infected them with herpes? I could be crazy or not, not sure anymore. Here's my story: My husband have me herpes about 8 yrs ago. My initial ob was so awful I wanted to die. I had never been in so much constant pain and discomfort in my life (and I have kids). It lasted about 8 or 9 weeks, I was misdiagnosed 3 times before going to the er out of frustration and found out what it was. I was completely devastated I had no idea how I contracted it since I had been with my husband over 11 yrs at that point. Found out he was having an affair. We separated for almost two yrs. I didn't have another ob for 7 yrs but in the last yr I have them constantly, as soon as on clears a few days later I get the tingling and itching again then a full rash. It is very uncomfortable, Valtrex hasn't worked or any other meds. I try to do remedies I have found on this site and get some relief. I just soooo stressed out and depressed, I haven't told anyone because I'm embarrassed. What makes matters worse is I SUFFER through OB's all the time and he has never had one. He won't get tested but one of her relatives told me about her and she had a cold sore ob. I don't know what to do to stop or lessen the obs but I'm coming to the end of my rope. Can't handle having sex but the desire is still there, Is there anyone out there that understands? Just so tired of feeling so alone in this.:-?

Hey MSLADY , welcome to our family :) . NO, I divorced my rat bastard first husband because he lied and denied. I am now married to a non H man for 22 years and we have daughter also non H like her father. Have you tried Lysine and Vitamin B12 complex? I have stayed on antivirals & Vit.b12 for the past 25 years. Not Lysine just antivirals & Vit.B12. This vitamin promotes good nerves health, gives us energies (as woman we need this with kids) and relieves stresses. you are not alone anymore with this h. We are here for you support and educations on herpes. Here is a book , it can answer some of your questions. I want you to know also Herpes can lay dormant for decades. Mine stayed Asymptomatic or Dormant for 23 YEARS.. No outbreaks or sores just prodromes like tingles and those are from Stresses which are my biggest triggers. Message me and if I can help. Also please feel free to ask any questions you may have here in the forums, many wonderful supportive people here can help you understand your h. May I ask how were you tested and what type is your herps ? Just because it's in the genital area doesn't mean it is h2. H1 is usually oral / facial area. H2 is usually genital area, as that is their homes. BUT they can switch places and when they do they become less frequent in outbreaks , H1 sheds less and has fewer outbreaks is less contagious and being female its harder for us to pass the herps. Just because your husband didn't show signs doesn't mean he couldn't have had it for years. Even you could have had it for years, remember I stayed dormant over two decades :) . It may be better for him to test. It will give you a baseline. The Igg Herpeselect Elisa is the best test for diagnosing herps. It also shows numerical values too. Please relax and settle in here. Many will come by and give you their knowledge and support too. Take care , hugs Ace :)

Thank you Ace. I was tested via a swab and visually. I will try the b12 vits where would I get lysine. I am just so frustrated with this whole thing right now. It helps to know that I am not a lone. Thanks

MSLady,

I bought Lysine supplements at Walmart but I'm a complete newbie (just found out two days ago) so maybe there is someplace where they are better or not. As of now I'm still in a lot of pain but am thinking I'll go pick up some B12 per Ace's advice above as it doesn't seem to be getting better after 5 Valtrex pills (so far) plus the other things.

Yes, I get Lysine and Vit.b12 complex sublingual , its liquid vit.b with many other b's in it. Lysine will help to keep h from replicating in the body. Vit.b12 complex will give energies, relieve stresses and it promotes.good nerves health. This genital herps lives in the spinal Ganglia Nervous system, base of spine, it helps me with prodromes and combined with my antivirals , it's my key to staying outbreak free. I believe it helps my moods too. Just.my opinion. You can get these supplements and vitamin at Walmart or Walgreens. 1250mg of Lysine, twice a day.and 1500mcg of vitamin b12 complex twice a day. The liquid has a dropper in it. The pills just follow 1500mcg, twice a day..Hope this helps . :).hugs, Ace

      No I’m sorry the only person that needs to be reported is you. Your posts are unacceptable by societal standards, that’s plain to all readers. Your damage to people with HSV is reprehensible. The only person bashing is you, until your attitude changes and you grow up, there is no place for you on this website.

      Okay,  here's an update... the new site that was bothering me this morning looks clearer and is no longer raised but it's still red.  I've started using tea tree oil mixed with coconut after someone suggested it.   I didn't take an extra dose so I don't know if it was the oil or the medicine.   I'm driving myself nuts with all of this.

      @WilsoInAus 

      The truth of the matter is that you have no idea what you're talking about.  You seriously have issues trying to tell someone about how they suffer, what their test results are.  You apparently suffer from HSV-1 oral based on your profile and you're here for who knows why...sure you must suffer a lot or possibly none at all.  Either way most of the population is okay with someone have HSV-1 orally.  HSV-2 Genital & Oral is a different ballgame for obvious reasons. 

      You think that by my symptoms which include 5 oral lesions since exposure and test results aren't good enough.  I don't need to post my results online to let the world see.  In fact I am done explaining myself. 

      THIS IS A SUPPORT COMMUNITY NOT A BASH COMMUNITY. YOU THINK IT'S OKAY TO BASH PEOPLE FOR LORD KNOW WHAT REASON.  You attempt to manipulate my character with your slander of my character.  The only person proving them self of poor character here is yourself.  

      I have reported you. You have no reason to be here, you are the classical keyboard warrior-troll. I have every right to be pissed off and trust me if I could. I would beat the shit out of you, bc you need lessons learned.  You're alien trying to tell another human being his/her symptoms and feelings.  FUCK OFF. I will never reply to you again. I don't care how much you try to stir the pot. You have lost all credibility and you have nothing better to do than try to demoralize other people. You're a shitty human being.

      @Tone123 could of points. A person with genital herpes is already infected through their entire genital area as marked out roughly by a pair of boxer shorts. Once your immune system is in full swing (a few months from infection) then further infection of the same type, regardless of any sub strains, is of negligible chance.

      You can have HIV for many years without developing AIDs, if that is what you're asking.
