I was recently diagnosed with HSV 2, and I felt extremely down for a while, since then I've built my way up; however, from time to time I wonder as to how serious can this virus be. I've had outbreaks, but they are so minor, that it doesn't even bother me. I do feel tingling sensations from time to time.

I contacted the girl I contracted it from and she seems to ignore the message I had to say.

It was out of fear of any STD that I found out I had this virus. I decided to take an STD check, since the girl I was with had an affair with someone. It also came to my attention that she's never been tested for STD's in past after having sexual relations, which is what got me awefully nervous. Man, the stress I went through when getting tested for HIV was the worst, but luckily I came negative.

I still am worried about how far this virus can damage me physically. Any insights will be greatly appreciated.

HSV doesnt have any long term physical impacts - all the impacts are mental my friend...

alltho - alot of it does feel physical, as if affects the "physical" side of relasonships...

i have been taking care of my self physically, however, i have not given up my adult beverages when i feel like one! emotionally, well that is an entirely different story. i am so down right now, it is killing me. i am pre menstrual which does not help, but i just cannot get out of this funk. i am so withdrawn and feel so alone, it scares me sometimes. i am thankful that i am so busy at work every day, so for about 9 hours, i rarely think about it; unless i am on this forum of course.

what do people to do make themselves feel better? i already get a pedicure and a manicure every other week. i get plenty of rest, maybe too much right now, since i don't do much else.

Maybe a good movie and some laughs with friends would help?

That always makes me feel better.

Last evening I had a massage.... that was Heaven on a stick!

I do think laughing is good medicine.

But ya have to Cheer up...life's too short ;)

Treat yourself like you treat your best friend... Get to know her, listen to her, care about her needs, don't push her too much, calm her down, make her smile, help her grow...

Always keep exercises, focus on what you want to do next in your life, do it as if you don't have herpes, or find ways around to do it. Herpes may slow us down and add more trouble in our way, but we are still moving forward...

Something on my face.

Can someone indicate to me whether a Herpes pimple or blister can appear as a tiny red dot on your face. I've recently noticed something very, very tiny by the side of my nose, I concerned it may be Herpes. Does Herpes appear in differently on their designated locations, such as a red pimiple on your gentials and as a scar on your face or vice versa.

I'm quite concerned since I only noticed this after examination of my face today.

its gone

Hi Christy,

Its gone, but I did got to a doctor; he asked me if I felt any tingling or any painful sensation around the location of it. I also had something like that on my arm too, except a bit larger. I told I felt nothing around it, and he quickly dismissed it as not Herpes. Apparently if there is no sensation around it, then you don't have it. The one on my face is gone, but the one on my arm still is present. Is it possible to have it around locations without any sensation?

      To give some context I hve been suffering with this for the last 6/7 years this came about after I had varicella zoster on the inside of my body a week after I started getting clusters of spots on the top of my buttock they are not painful as such can be itchy at times but majority of the time I don’t feel it when I have an outbreak. I’ve been to various doctors who say it’s a fungal skin infection or a bacterial skin infection. I’ve asked if it’s herpes but they will say it’s not without even testing it.

      Hello there @momma267 and welcome. There is no reason to believe that what you have there is other than a pressure sore, something that has emerged from rubbing with clothing or butt cheeks and exacerbated by bacteria or yeast.  Note that the first you’d learn of herpes is unlikely to be on your butt, instead where it enters your body, this is usually within the vaginal lips for females.

      So to begin with, I am 26 and have been with the same partner for 8 years. I have only been with three people ever, one completely protected and the other we were both our firsts. I got this rash on my but while pregnant and my doctor said she was testing for it and I'm so confused. I've had two babies, breastfeed, and never had anything as much as a cold sore. Does this look like something anyone has experienced? I used fragrant soap down there and am hoping it's contact dermatitis or a heat rash from sweating and gaining so much weight.  Advice would be helpful. I'm stressing out a bit as I am pregnant.

      @WilsoInAus could you kindly have a look :) also how long does it typically take for herpes blisters to develop into sores

      Hi, it is me again, apologies for the recent influx of posts. I've noticed a slightly raised area on the middle of my top lip with what i feel are some bumps. i do have a habit of biting my lips a fair bit and this area is frequented by my teeth. I haven't noticed any unusual/abnormal tingling or burning or pain sensations. the photos are a bit difficult to focus on them but do these seem like the start of cold sores? note: I will be visiting the drs for an std checkup in the coming week. https://imgur.com/gallery/YLVA5us
