facial herpes?

Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed with HSV2 in March.   I have always suffered from acne. Recently I had some extra large pimples(atlwast I think) and of course it makes me wonder if its hsv as I've heard it can present itself anywhere. Has anyone else had HSV on the face? How does it loon or feel and is there a way I can know the difference? Usually I get one or two pimples at a time. I have like 4 and they are rather large. Not clusters and don't look like blisters, just raised, red and tender...

Sounds like pimples to me. Have u changed your diet recently, are you taking antivirals or natural herbal remedies? This could be the cause of the increase in break outs. I've noticed, since my diagnosis that my skin is way more sensitive in general and I break out way easier. I'm using organic apple cidar vinegar (with the mother) on my face and it seems to be helping.

If you have HSV on your genitals it's unlikely to be on your face because it's preferred location is the genitals.  It could be that the virus has affected your immune system and now you are having more Breakouts of pimples.  Typically the Breakout so pretty much the same and would be more watery than pussy but would generally be like what you had in your genitals because I think I had one of my face and it was exactly like on my genitals at the time I had a first outbreak.

I don't know if you're taking antivirals but I will tell you every time I take acyclovir I get two or three large, painful, very red pimples that take litteraly months to clear up. They're only on my face. I almost never have any acne otherwise and these are unlike most of the other pimples I've experienced. They're almost more annoying than the out breaks.

I don't know if any of that resonates with your situation. Wishing you good luck.

      No Western Blot. High positives with both IgG & IgM tests plus symptoms .

      I doubt it is HSV. I agree with them. If anything I would look at other STDs for throat symptoms. Make sure you are clear from everything

      I went to see clinic and she said they only take a swab if I have blisters. She was very dismissive of everything I said - I heard somewhere that GPS don’t do blood tests anymore for herpes cause it was causing significant mental health problems due to being incurable  I’m ambivalent about blood tests as they don’t seem accurate and whatever answer I get there’s still a part of me that will be unsure and will fuel anxiety   i thought it was difficult to get genital herpes in throat?But the flu like symptoms afterwards was nothing I’ve experienced before and happened the day after. Would this be as serious as genital herpes ?    I just find it hard to sit and wait for any bump on my vagina and it’s all I can think about
