2 weeks after first OB, Very confused on symptoms


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, so yesterday was my first day off Acyclovir. I was feeling fine since my lesions are gone and I can walk now, I've been eating healthy taking vitamins and what not. Yesterday night I started to have a burning sensation, like when you have a urinary infection and it was also itchy. Let me just mention it was my first time food binging, I had wing stop and in n out back to back. When I got home after my meals I started to feel the burning itch and was so scared to have an OB so I took a spare Acyclovir and took some vitamin D, C, & Lysine. Also cleaned the area with Tea Tree Oil and then it went away. But it was happening for a good hour or so.

Does anyone know what that was all about ? Was it shedding? Signs of an OB? Very confsued

The wrong food can be a trigger. Do you have an ingredient list of Everything you ate, including the spices? How much sugar was involved? Perhaps just too much chemical overload after being conscientious of what you eat. Was there MSG involved? You have no idea how the food was prepared and how old the grease was that food was fried in and what contaminants were in it or anything else.

We are walking chemicals that work together to be us. Throw in the wrong one and things go off! 

This is still very new to your body so your chemicals are trying to work it out. Did you know that sugar stops your immune system from working properly?

@SureWhyNot  I don't have the ingredient list, although I'm sure if I do some research I could find it since its common fast food, however at In n Out I did a lettuce wrap instead of buns for my own sake. But now that you mention the sugar it could have been the vanilla shake I had along with all the old grease. Should have been obvious -__- but I also wanted to test the waters, guess I over did it.

I was just wondering if this could be a sign of shedding, but its too much of a coincidence that it happened right after I ate horribly.

Thank you for your insight, I sincerely appreciate it.

There will be a point when you are not triggered so easily. You were probably not finished your first OB or completely over it so it was ready to begin again. I went through Hell the first few months after contracting this virus. Had lots of recurring OB's no matter what I did. Each body is different. This is why it is important to take note of what does trigger so you can co relate and understand what affects you. Some can eat peanuts, I can't. I can eat chocolate and still drink beer, always have, some can't.

As far as understanding shedding that is the most difficult aspect. I get obvious OB indications now because I am forced into such restricted foods so I can feel it within hours of eating.(not because of HSV, different chemical problem ) Early on I had no idea what was going on, just, bang got one again! I learned what my triggers were. You will too but it takes diligence and looking at what food really is and isn't. I keep it simple, what would a hunter and gatherer eat? (but one who can travel the world for the best choices because everything real is always in season.)

Hate to say this but even lettuce can be deadly in the wrong hands. Unwashed, poor hygiene hands. If you are testing the waters only test a bit at a time so you can make the relations. If you have a mix of things you would have no way of knowing exactly which one the trigger is. Girl loves a challenge eh!

My ND taught me the easiest way to figure out what my body does and does not want. I eat only fruits vegetables and brown rice for 2 weeks. NOTHING ELSE BUT WATER. Then introduce one new thing at a time. If you react, culprit!!! If you are reacting to something within the 2 week time frame then that is where you look.

Processed and fast food take out is not food, just filler!

@SureWhyNot  you're very very right. kinda silly that I would be shocked with my symptoms after having wing stop and in n out back to back -__-

Honestly, thank you for taking the time to reply and bring me back to my senses lol. Thank you thank you, hope all is well.

      Hi "Jeremy"..... I agree, the topic of your HSV status does not need to be something you disclose too soon in a developing relationship..... get to know each other first....see how it's going and as it progresses, then the HSV issue will naturally need to be revealed.... it's my personal opinion though that before there is any sexual encounter you ought to disclose your HSV status.... I know some will disagree with me on this but, I think it is morally wrong not to disclose first.  This can be a make/break situation for most people but, again, I feel it is simply wrong not to give the other person the whole story since your decision not to disclose could put their health at risk.... that is simply not an option in my opinion.  Looking back to my "pre-HSV" life I most certainly would want my partner to disclose their HSV+ status before intimacy so that I could make my decision as to whether I want to take that risk or not....

      Thanks, CHT. I appreciate the feedback. The whole trauma of going through this has led me to figure out a lot about myself and my attachment wounds, so I'm taking courses to come out of this better. This girl really was my dream woman in so many ways, it's been the hardest heartbreak to deal with ever. I'm truly in a lot of pain, but using the pain as fuel to launch that new business and work with coaches. I also opened up to my family about HSV, so my parents and sister know now, and they were very loving and accepting of it. Since opening up about it, I feel way better around this thing. After opening up, I also found out that some mutual friends in our family have discordant couples who are married with children, so HSV hasn't stopped them from living a loving life. The thing is... all of these couples I mention did not disclose until 6-8 months into the relationship. So now I'm thinking it might be better not to disclose until I know things are very serious. I'll of course stay on the medication and use protection, but maybe this is a better route than disclosing upfront and scaring women off.

      Hey @Lcj987 and welcome to the website. You can be sure that isn't HSV-2, looks nothing like it. It is much more likely to be folliculitis or inflamed fordyce spots.

      Hey @JackThrowAway herpes causes an outbreak where it enters the body first and maybe a progressive spread. If it doesn't cause an outbreak at the entry site then it won't cause one elsewhere, it also won't 'jump' upon infection - it would be more likely that the lesions are continuous from the penis to the anus. Nevertheless, testing trumps symptoms or any interpretation of symptoms. The correct conclusive result arises when: you have a positive swab; or An IgG HSV-2 level over 3.5 (Herpeselect test).

      Slept with someone unprotected, roughly 2 weeks ago now. I felt generally unwell the couple of days after but I’d been drinking the whole weekend and didn’t have much sleep either of the days of that weekend so put it down to that. 6 days after I noticed these spots appear on the shaft of my penis. Along with symptoms of discomfort in my shaft in the couple of days prior to them appearing. No pain when urinating at all that I have noticed. They don’t hurt, itch or tingle and they don’t have fluid in from what I can see or feel if I squeeze them and have never burst? I went to a sexual health clinic to get checked up, they took bloods to do a full test and looked at the spots but said they saw nothing that concerned them but I’m not sure about that, any advice? The smaller spots under the shaft are just follicles I had diagnosed years ago and non-sti related.
