I think my bf is having an OB


Recommended Posts

Hi. my boyfriend informed me on Sunday that he had a little bump on his penis. He showed it to me and it looked like a pimple. A couple of days later (due to him picking it), it was an open soar. He said that the sore didn't hurt all the time but there were times when he experienced pain such as burning especially when he took a shower. To his knowledge, he has never had an OB--what do you all think? I have acyclovir 400 mg and he has been taken those.

Well. it appears that he is the one who transmitted herpes to me. I was clear before him. However, he hasn't had steady insurance in a few years. He insurance will be effective on June 18th so then he will be able to go to a doctor. He has been taking meds on and off since I found out I had it. My doctor was sympathetic and wrote me a prescription for double the milligrams.

correction...she wrote me double the meds for valtrex (when we can afford it) but only a 400 mg prescription for acyclovir x 2 each day. Until his insurance is effective, I have only been taking one dose. Since he has an "ob" I have told him to take 2 doses per day until it is cleared up.

I think it's really sweet that you are taking care of each other. It's too bad he's having an ob though. :(

With the Acyclovir my dr has me take 3 a day when there is an ob and 2 a day for suppressive.

Well. I love him to death. He is my heart and there is no way that I am going to medicate myself and let him possibly suffer. When I had valtrex we would just split the pill...that way at least each of us will get the meds in our system. I feel like in times like this, we have to stick together. No need to point the fingers...just deal with it and be there for one another as much as possible. I will let him know to up the acyclovir to 3 times a day. He said that it's drying up...anything that will speed up the process? He only had one sore...

go to a pharmacy and get the otc domeboro it is a powder that you mix with water and soak a cloth in and apply it like a compress to the sores. It will make them dry up quickly and speed healing and it is something like $12. for a box with a dozen packages. I think you can even mix it in a container and pour part of it on a cloth and save part to use later as long as you don't re-dip the cloth and contaminate it.

If you aren't having ob's can't he use the meds instead and you take a small break? if it causes you to have an ob I wouldn't do it but only you know if that is what happens.

Otherwise maybe ask your dr for more Acyclovir. My dr prescribes 200 at a time and it adds up to 3 a day before I can renew the scrip.

You are doing the right thing taking care of each other I would do the same thing if it was me.

Thanks. I told my bf about it...we are going to the pharmacy this weekend. Also I told him the other day to take acyclovir 3 times a day. I didn't mind to sacrafice at all. It is drying up slowly but it has made progress. He would take care of me the same way...this is the last time for us to turn against one another.

      https://imgur.com/a/cVi8yJY 2 weeks ago I had unprotected oral sex. Few days later I wake up with a stinging sensation in my urethra. I don't have any blisters, lesions or redness, my penis looks completely normal from the outside, but the stinging in my urethra is always there. Urinating doesn't make the pain worse. From the research I've done and how my body feels I'm pretty sure I caught genital hsv1. To make matters worse I think I transmitted it to my eyelid by touching my infected penis and then my eyelid which did develop a blister. Can anyone look at my lower eyelid and tell me if it looks anything like herpes?  I forgot to add that the blister is painless, but my eye is a bit watery. Other than that it's fine and my eyesight is good. Considering how this all developed in a matter of a week after I had unprotected sex it can't be much else than herpes..

      Hey I see that they also sell the pill form in 100 mg and 500 mg form. Do you think this is as affective? They have the regular and extract version of the pill. Which would you think is the right one to get? And how many pills per day to get the same effect of say 16 seeds?

      I had an IGG test  and the ranges were out of range and high  HSV 1 was 42 and HSV 2 was 19 so I guess it was accurate but the problem now is I can't figure out when or who I got it from. In 2018 to 2019 when I was with my ex I was STD tested but not sure if herpes was included but my ex was supposed to get tested but refused. I experienced some trauma with him and didn't date until a year and a half later so I'm confused. The guy I dated after the ex who didn't want to be tested I told them a week ago about my results he was trying to be there for me and understanding,I told him to get tested but to request a herpes blood test , because he had no noticeable lesions or bumps ever is what he said and I never noticed any on him now he has shut down all his social media and I can't reach him. Hoping he's okay, I feel bad because in 2018 I did have what I was told it was an abrasion that tingled but at my doctor the day I was tested they told me it wasn't herpes but I think it was only a visible diagnosis. I keep having it reoccur from time to time

      Hello "FeelingLost".... your fears and concerns are understandable but, nothing you've described regarding the sexual encounter would cause you to contract herpes.... further, your symptoms are not herpes related.  Best of all, your doctor is correct, your results don't show any herpes here.  You can relax.... definitely have your GP take a look at things and see what might be causing the symptoms but, again, none of them are typical herpes related.  I wish you the best in terms of talking to your wife about this encounter.... hopefully she will understand and you both can work through this amicably.  We all make mistakes.... be careful not to beat yourself up too hard over this.... you can become so racked with guilt that you start imagining physical symptoms.  Best of luck.... and take care..... come back to the site if you have questions.
