Hello!

Hello everyone.

Am new to this site, but not new to HSV2! Was diagnosed in 2010/11 (can't remember for sure).

It's taken a lot to create an account on here, as there's such stigma surrounding herpes.

I desperately need some advice - I've had a flare up literally start today. Oh my it is agony. All of my flare ups are bloody painful :(

(I prob get about 4 or 5 a year, ALWAYS linked to my period)

So this flare up - agony at the 'infection site', which has a radiating pain around it, and is causing cramp all down my leg. There is no comfortable position that eases it. This agonising pain usually lasts around 2 days ish.

Does anyone have any home remedies that work????

Thanks in advance

Hey DarylsGal, welcome honey. Have you tried soaking in a tub with a cup of Epsom Salts dissolved in it. They relieve the soreness and help dry up the outbreaks. Also taking ibuprofen can ease the pain. Also spraying bactine on the affected area will numb that area, it contains a numbing agent. You can also apply desitin (baby diaper rash cream in purple tube) this cream contains 40% zinc oxide and does calm the area. I also use vitamin b-12 Complex for nerve support and it gives energy too. Welcome to the family and I'm so very happy you reached out for support. No worries honey, your safe here and amongst the best and most educated with many tips and tricks to help you with those nasty outbreaks. Hugs Aces xo

Thank you so much for your message :)

Wow you have so many tips - I've just been putting up with it and occasionally getting Aciclovir from the docs.

I've just had a bath, which hasn't helped lol!

Will be purchasing some Bactine, and/or Desitin tomorrow!!

I don't want to be 'oh woe is me' but urgh, it's so painful!!

Thanks so much for your kind words :) xx

I don't want to be 'oh woe is me' but urgh, it's so painful!! And I was beginning to think I was the only one suffering! (Even though I know not really!)

Thanks so much for your kind words :) xx

Hey DarylsGal, you are welcome honey. I've had ghsv2 for nearly 28 years, I'm a mother, a wife and on my good days a great friend. My husband has tested negative for my herpes. He is putting up with my menopausal mood swings now and the higher energy bills from my constant hot flashes, I'd almost rather have a outbreak then go through this Change in Life, Body and Spirit.

I have a boyfriend of 3 years who is so understanding, I'm very lucky.

He's the only person in my life who knows about my hsv. I haven't told anyone else. He's negative also.

I've literally been moaning allllll day, and he's just been lovely :) xx

      @clarke53 without a swab that’s a hugely risky call!

      How long has this happened to you? What was swabbed? Results yet?

      Hi all  i have been to a doctor on 4 seperate occasions since I had unprotected sex with a woman who I later found out has herpes . They have said “it doesn’t look” like herpes . My penis always is red , inflamed anabolic has little red pimples on it.  I am constant uncomfort and pain in my gential areas, tingling , fatigue . None of the drs have done a blood test. I have researched DNA testing as they appear more accurate. I saw a dr this week and he took a swab. It’s always on my mind now because I have just started a relationship and don’t know if I should tell her. I’m scared she will run a mile . I haven’t told her because the dr said I was fine . I don’t know what do to do .  Any advice would be appreciated . I have a history with depression and this is adding to it

      @clarke53 why do you think you do not have an asymptomatic genital infection. The mouth sores don’t seem to be herpetic.  What protection do you use genitally?
