I am a 90 year old woman.  2 years ago my granddaughter from another state came to visit me. She lived "loose"at college. She got Herpes. Then public lice.  I lived alone...no problems. She sat at my computer wearing a dress and no underwear.  The next day something started crawling up my  legs.  Since that time I have been to 3 drs.  At times it seemed like I had won the battle.  This week I was told they had made a home in the recturm. GROSS. Continuing my case, when I had catarat surgery, A problem occured in my right eye after using steroid drops so many times. Eye dr. said it was the Herpes Vitus. Now myl left eye is getting that same sandy thing my right eye has.  My question: Could her lice have passed the Herpes Virus to me?

Hi Agnes, welcome to the site.  Sorry you are going through this.  I am not a doctor, but after doing some internet research, I don't believe lice can transmit the herpes virus.  What proof does the eye doctor have that it is herpes?  Have you ever been tested for herpes? I say get tested first and see if you have had this virus for a while and didn't know it.

Hi Agnes

Although herpes of the eye is rare, it is entirely feasible that someone who has an oral HSV-1 infection for their lifetime may well experience some issues in times of stress in elder years.

If this is the case, then you have had oral HSV-1 since you were a child. Genital herpes can only be spread with sexual contact.

      Hey @Zrozpaczona9 that looks like folliculitis to me, that’s independent of the question of herpes. The doctor is wrong in the sense that a negative IgG test is beyond reasonable doubt that you do not have herpes. It is a small percentage of people for which a false negative occurs. The doctor is right to take a swab to increase your confidence that there’s no herpes present. I’m sure you’ll have your result soon.

      Hey @WilsoInAus miałam dzisiaj wizytę u dermatologa, gdyż dostałam zmian w pachwinie, w trakcie wakacji nad morzem. Udałam sie tam ze zmianami w postaci strupów. Powiedział ze nie można wykluczyć opryszczki mimo negatywnego wyniku Hsv igg i zalecił wymaz z pochwy na Hsv i inne choroby. Wytłumaczyłam mu że zmiany zamieniają się w strup, ale nie ma w nich płynu, więc zalecił badanie śluzu pochwy na hsv PCR, zastanawiam się czy ma to sens, i czy wirusa można wykryć na podstawie tego badania w wydzielin z szyjki macicy. Z góry dziekuje za pomoc

      In this forum we will discuss does lume work Lume is paraben-free and uses several natural ingredients like Aloe barbadensis leaf juice, tapioca starch, and Maranta arundinacea root powder (also known as arrowroot powder) to control odor and sweat. One of the key Lume deodorant ingredients is mandelic acid, an AHA found in skin care products, which also has an antibacterial effect.

Because painkiller kind of medicine is very strong and can harm your liver.
