Is this your finger or a family members? Do you also have whitlow but yours looks differently? I am just not clear as to whose finger this is--if it is yours, does it hurt or tingle?

Ok, a few clarifying questions--for your suspected whitlow on your finger/hand, how does it look and what does it feel like and have you been tested (via blood test) to see if you have the herpes virus (or, why do you suspect your issue on your hand/finger is herpes)? For your family member, why would you suspect this is herpes--do they think it is herpes or had contact with herpes?

I will provide a photo of my bumps on my palms, but i had (protected) sex with someone who has ghsv. Type unknown.. but i kissed him, also had some hand foreplay, now i had a old cut on my palm. It was mostly healed.. so i started getting these clear bumps on my palms my doc says its Dyshidrotic eczema, but i get tingling in my fingers, and in the side of my hand. Ive been to 2 othr doc. That says eczema too . Ive had 3 igg. And two swabbs (diff. Areas) all neg. BUT that fam. MEM. Is my daughters finger. Even tho ive been wearing gloves\ mittens i still think she could have gotten it .. it doesnt seem to bothr her. Its only noticeble when her hands are red. Not so much when they arnt.

      Any guys in Dallas with HSV? Would love to connect with someone since I’m new to the condition.

      I get a generic 3 month supply of valtrex in the US for about $50...that’s one pill a day at 1000mg a pill.

      Makes complete sense to me.  My mother never exhibited HSV1, but never exhibited.  I am all for whatever it takes!

      I’ve been seeing this guy for two months now. I’ve had hsv2 down there for 3 years...never have I spread it to anyway, and had a relationship of a year and had sex with the same guy the whole year. So, when I started seeing this guy, I told him up front about it. Told him it really isn’t a huge deal and I’ve bever passed it but there’s a small risk. So 5 weeks in, we’ve had sex a few times and 17days after we had protected sex (I’m also on daily antiviral pills) he texts me saying he can’t pee because it is so painful. I am so depressed I passed it to him. I know he agreed to the risk, but neither of us actually “thought” i would pass it, if that makes sense. Always a risk, I know, and as I said, he agreed. But he is upset now. In denial and went almost a full week unable to urinate because he was in such bad pain. He did have a blister show up around Day 6 of the peein problem so it’s def herpes. Unsure what to say to him. I feel terrible for bringing that upon him. Anyone have similar situations? Also haven’t talked in a few days. Giving him time before trying to start a convo. I’m sure he doesn’t want to talk right now.
