infection to my son


Recommended Posts

Can hugging or touching the kids can also transfer the herpes infection to them . I am not sure I have the herpes but my son also start having same red scaling and some raised bumps skin on face and upper chest which come and go within hours .

Second my own story .

am having cold sour at my lips and that is my story . I have not checked for herpes yet but all my remaining test at 8 week including HIV is negative .

After exposure I have burning in uretha and taken doxycycline and cured after week 3 have same burining and taken azithomycin and cures but ihave follwng sympton

sour mouth

White yeast on lower lips ,

back ache neck stiffness

skin infection on face chest and arms like caling

pain in arms and back bone on left side .

some diffrent feeling on left leg

lump glands ( no feaver )

after week 8 ,I have ONLY red scaling with small raisd bumps or dots which come and go after few hours and cause itching . it is more on face , chest and arms . on face it spread after doing shaving and in genral after having hot bath . All othe symptom have gone .

mY QUESTION IS IF THIS IS HERPES SYMPTOM and if yes who long these rashes will last and what are the test and medicines available in UK .

go to the doctor

sounds like you and your son should get to a doctor, PRONTO. there are so many different symptoms, appearances, etc. of herpes that only a doctor (a knowledgeable one at that) and tests can determine. good luck; let us know what happens, and always know that everybody here on this site is supporting you.

cold sores are herpes. ABSOLUTELY!

you don't give many details but I would see a dr about the symptoms you described.

as for your son. If he is an infant he could be reacting to heat but it is always adviseable to have a pediatrician look at him. babies are fragile and you need to act quickly in the event it is something serious.

The UK does have testing and medications for hsv and other ailments

I definitely agree that you and your son need to get to a doctor as soon as possible. I don't know your situation, but personally I do not have insurance. I have gone to planned parenthood, a type of low cost clinic in the states and I am sure that you should be able to find something similiar in the UK. I am still waiting for my diagnosis to be confirmed, but I know that washing your hands after you use the bathroom and don't touch your eyes. Hope I can help some.

      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.

      Hi (I’m really scared and feel really disappointed in myself and worried about my future), I had oral sex with a condom almost 3 weeks ago and a massage parlor. I also received a hand job at the same time prior to putting a condom on, also may have rubbed my penis on her back a little. Did not touch her genitals I don’t recall any sores on her back. After the event she handed me a pice of TP and after I took off the condom I wiped my penis head to clear away the excess ejaculation…this is where I suspect I got infected, she had just gone pee and wiped and maybe touched a sore or something and then I got it on my penis from the tp? Idk. I’m just flailing.   After this I’ve had discomfort on the skin below the head of my penis and 4 bumps for 2 weeks now, the bumps don’t seem to have changed in size. I also had frequent urination for about a week and have had dull pain in my groin on and off. I also have some pins and needles on the sides of my abdomen/trunk that get worse when I go out in the heat or get dehydrated. I’ve had a lot of trouble sleeping, likely due to guilt and shame and worry about the future.   so I got one test done at 10 days from the event (idk know if this can tell me anything… the doctor assured me it was 100% correct and I don’t have herpes. I was not physically examined). I got a full panel std. neg for everything. HSV-1 results: IgG 0.3 / HSV-2 IgG 0.9 hsv-1 IgM = 2.2 hsv-2 IgM = 3.0 (Reference V. Negative: Less than 9.0 Borderline: 9.0 to 11.0 Positive: Greater than 11.0) I have an appointment with my GP on Thursday, hoping he can help. Will likely go to a std testing service tomorrow to see if I can get in an antiviral proactively. Plan to get tested again this week.

      May 13 ( day I will never forget).. a guy I was dating and I drank way to much and decided to have anal sex. We did use protection however, not enough lube, wasn’t done correctly and it was painful. So bad that I yelled out and fell off the bed. Anyway, oral was also performed on me anal and vaginal. Flash forward to 3-4 days after that. I was in the most intense pain I had ever felt. I went to a gyn she tool one look and said it looks like herpes. She swabbed me . 2 days after that, yes it’s HSV1 . I was still in pain, irritated anal area and vaginal area and It was unbearable.  today, I still have irritation and itchy and when I pass a bowel i’m in pain and the itch is crazy.     When I first was diagnoses the gyn gave me valtrex which I did not take bc I was in so much pain I could not move for 2 days.  Groin lymphs were swollen I had fever , tired etc.  I am wondering if I had taken the valtrex would it have kinda liked stopped the virus in it’s tracks enough to reproduce? Do people see a correlation between no more outbreaks and immediate initial valtrex  use ? I am 43, I never thought this wound happen as I am not a promiscuous person, I hardly date and I always use protection when I do have intercouse , have yearly std tests. I’m just so sad that i’m at this point right now . I’m trying not to get depressed but this is making my body feel miserable. I’m an avid runner and biker and mom of two teens. I feel like my life as I knew is over. I want to feel better already.
