Lost, confused, hurt.

I got the blood test done for herpes on Monday and my doctors just called me back saying I've been exposed to genital and oral. Exposed? What does that mean? She didn't really say anything else other than to come in if I have an outbreak. My first outbreak was at the beginning. Of August and I thought it was just an ingrown hair so I plucked it, there were two hairs underneath the bump. So a few days later it looked to be infected. I went to and urgent care near me and the first doctor told me that's all it was and gave me antibiotics. But my cat ran off with my pill bottle so I had to go back, the second lady that looked (same place) asked if there was a possibility of an std, I told her not that I know of. I'm not really sure what to do right now, I can't stop crying. And I've had a problem with depression before and I'm scared it's going to consume me this time. Please help.

You really must get the full details of the testing you have had done before reaching any conclusions. Drop in and get a printout or maybe you can see the results online.

You need to know whether this was IgG testing and what the values were for HSV-1 and HSV-2.

Well it did blister after the bump was healing. I just assumed that it's because the fluids were trying to escape from the infection and couldn't because I had been putting neosporin on the wound. It was very painful though before I went to the doctors. My lymph node was swollen on the side it was on and my body was on fire like I had a fever. No burning sensation when peeing though. My discharge the past week has been watery and smells very bad. It's starting to get a little better now, I took some yeast infection medicine. And last week I started to get what I thought was strep because I've had it before and there was also what looked to be a canker sore in the back of my mouth near my tonsils. Honestly a lot of things make sense so I'm not sure.

      Just another set of supporting articles to a potential release date in 2024 giving hope to sufferers whom the standard of care is currently worthless: Promising Progress in clinical trials for Pritelivir (herpescureadvocacy.com) HSV Treatment Readies for Approval — Precision Vaccinations News

      I have not found a cheaper source for Amenalief, and I've searched high and low. I have a thread called "Pritelivir at Last" you may want to follow as I have a strong belief that It may be available to the public in the summer of 2024 and as I find new info, I update the thread immediately. Now, may I suggest a combination of drugs that several others on this forum have found to be very effective over acyclovir alone? Myself and others have found that taking 40mg of omeprazole (Tagamet @dissolvedo2 ) with 1 gram of Valacyclovir in the morning and 1 gram of Valacyclovir in the evening alone for 3 days have had profound effectiveness at stopping outbreaks in their tracks. I'd like to remind you that I am not a doctor and at best I am personal researcher for what works for me. I @lw@ys share my findings with the forum in the hopes to help others alleviate their suffering. There is another drug combo that I have tried myself as well as others on this forum have tried and that I personally feel is a much more effective for myself. This combo is 1 gram of activated charcoal with 1-gram of valacyclovir in the morning followed by 1 gram of valacyclovir in the evening alone, again for 3 days. I have found that this has reduced my outbreaks to almost only once a year and they are mild at worse. Again, just a reminder that this works for me and may not work for you but I always feel that i have to share this with anyone that cannot get this virus under control so I hope my findings can help those of you who cannot achieve relief with the standard treatment alone. The stronger anti-virals come with risks and if I can help anyone avoid those risks then by all means I feel I have done some good in this world. I only ask that you let me know if either of these suggestions work for you so that I can document it in my notes. Good luck my friend!

      Hi @Anxious 1234 Did you get diagnosis for this?

      Hi @WhatDidIDo2023, hopefully all is well with you and your significant other and are still together.   Did she develop any other symptoms after you mentioned her getting itchiness? Was it determined what you had was contagious? Most likely developed a fungal disease and caused her a yeast or uti
