Does anyone here from the Philippines that share the same faith as i am? I was diagnosed with Herpes last Aug.12 2016, BUT the first time i saw the symptoms (blisters) was right after new year January 2016. May last contact was before xmas 2015 it was an oral and it didnt even climaxed as we were almost got caught doing something by our friends. I noticed ulcers but not painful on my penis glans near the opening, i went to the doctor (male) and said it looked more like syphilis so i was tested for it came back negative, so it must be bacterial or fungal given me meds for it. I was so relived, then after a month it came back almost the same position but a little further from the opening of penis,  so the doctor tested me again for syphilis came back negative still doesnt look like Herpes to him, took the meds again. After a month its there again! So i went to a different doctor (female) she says it does look like syphilis if i came back negative again then it really must be bacterial or fungal because of the hot summer days, even though it started as small water fluid blisters, i was relived to hear that and my syphilis test came back negative again. Still no pain and thats another basis the doctor said atleast there must be pain, but after that March outbreak i thought im already out of the woods until August i noticed small blisters again went back to the same doctor (female) and this time she says it looks like herpes. Because the blisters pattern follows "yung ugat na visible sa balat", i was devastated about that news, she prescribed me Aciclovyr for it. Decided to come home, the bus trip is a 2 hour trip, but it seemed like 15mins as all i can remember is staring outside the bus window looking outside with a blank thought, no reaction, empty feeling. Until i reached my bed that night and for the first time cried. I started reading about this condition, after that, i learned alot to be honest on how common this condition is, and its not life threatening for me. But still its been a roller coaster ride for me in terms of my emotions. My last outbreak is last October and till now theres none. I am hoping to find people who share my case especially filipinos. To be honest i am surprised that we have Herpes in the Philippines because no one from the DOH even the media has given exposure on this virus for us to be informed. All we see here are HIV cases and awareness. I hope i can find a testing clinic in Manila for Herpes just for closure, because after the doctor (female) diagnosed me that i have Herpes i asked her if where can i be tested for it she said there's none. Im sure i have no Syphilis because i got my medical results for work last week and they test HIV, Syphilis, Hepa etc. But not Herpes. I hope i can find support here. Mabuhay!

Makati Med can do the antibody testing. 

Or. 

Get a script from your doctor for Valtrex and when you have finished it. Keep it and you can refill at a Mercury. If one does not help you go to another.

Herpes sores are normally not painful. They also heal without scars, that is the good news.

I get some symptoms in my mouth, including ulcers on the inside of my upper and lower lips, also sometimes spots on tongue. Often the tip tongues feels like burning like all the nerves there are dying. So many of these symptoms in the mouth are very painful. Sometimes I can barely talk. Some people apparently can need hospital treatment in extreme cases to ensure they do not dehydrate.

My best advice is go and see your dentist, as there are many natural bumps in your mouth, and also many other possible causes to your symptoms. Dentists are trained in Oral matters, they will know what things like herpes, oral cancer, canker sores, etc and be able to give a reliable diagnosis.

Hello! I'm a female, 22 yrs old from the Philippines. My first ever sexual encounter was last year, dec. My ex bf & I did oral from dec-march. He's the only person i had sexual contact with, even my first kiss. He's been gone for 2 months (april-may) and when he came back last june, we did anal without protection. That was my first time, we got paranoid because i had symptoms of hiv after that. We got tested last july and it turned out negative for the both of us. He encountered a lot of sexual activites with other girls in the past (lots of it he didn't use any protection). I'm quite knowledgeable about hiv & stds but herpes' something new to me. I've searched about it 'cos after our first anal last june, i had an outbreak around my upper lip. Googled some photos of blisters/outbreak & it's exactly the same.

I'll try to get tested for hiv again since it hasn't been 3 months since our first encounter last june when we decided to get tested the following month (july). I found out that he cheated on me when he was away (april-may) but told me there wasn't any physical contact but i wanna make sure. After our last sexual encounter (oral) this august, i had a blister inside my left nose. It's been gone for 2 weeks but now there's another one inside and it hurts.

I remember when we first dated he would always complain about ulcers on his gums. Now i'm getting worried. I'm facing this alone and i'm quite devastated 'cos i find it unfair. I know lots of other people have much more complicated problems but i'm having a hard time accepting that i've been careful & did all of that to one person only (whom i trusted) but now i'm going through this stress.

I've researched about hospitals/clinics/orgs that offer herpes blood tests but I only found 2. 1 private clinic that will cost me a huge amount then PGH. I want to go to PGH and get tested as soon as possible but idk how. Also, it'll cost me quite a lot too. If you know any hospitals/clinics that specialize herpes kindly reply pls. Thank you.

Hello @WilsoInAus are you from the philippines? Wdym i had it orally since childhood? Can i get herpes even without kissing/having sex with someone? And do you know any clinics/hospitals that offer blood examinations? And the results.. Is tgere a chance that it'll turn out negative tho i already have it inside me? Because my last outbreak on the lip was june. We didn't bother about herpes that time and we focused on Hiv tests only. I'm not sure if the re-occurring blister inside my nose is from herpes

Hello! May i know where did you get tested? And is it possible to know if you're really positive even after months of contact/outbreak? Baka kasi mag-result ng negative kahit meron na talaga.

      Before I explain my case, I would like to apologize for my English. English is not my mother language. I am a 30 year old man. Since June 26, 2020 I have developed discomfort in my penis, specifically in the glans. I didn't get any sores, I didn't have any discharge and no scars. But I have had banalitis and some redness. I told you my story (It's pretty long): - On June 20 (one week before the symptoms) I had protected sex (I used a condom) with a friend. We had coital sex and I gave her oral sex. I didn't see any external physical problems on her. - On June 26 in the evening, I started to have a burning sensation when I urinate. I didn't pay much attention to it because I thought it was because I hadn't drunk much water during that day. - The mild-burning continued for a week. From this point on I started to think that I had a bacterial infection or some allergic reaction. That's why I decided to have some general tests (hemogram, urine test, cholesterol, etc.) before going with the doctor (that's what they always ask for). - On July 8 I visited the general practitioner. He performed a complete physical examination. He examined my penis and he told me that he didn't see anything abnormal. He also examined the tests and didn't notice anything unusual. All he saw was that I have high cholesterol and Eosinophil was a little high too. Regarding cholesterol, it's a hereditary thing, because I'm thin, I play sports, and I eat well. Regarding Eosinophil, I suffer from pollen allergy. The only thing he concludes is that I have a possible urinary tract infection and he ordered me a single dose injectable antibiotic (Fosfomycin). He told me that he doesn't think I'm allergic to latex condom because I've always used a condom in my life. - I took the shot. But the discomfort continued. - On the night of July 15, a terrible burning starts on the outer left side of my glans and it was a little bit red. That night I couldn't sleep because of the pain. So I decide to go on July 16 to see another general practitioner. The doctor examined me physically and saw nothing unusual. She performed a blood test again, but finds nothing strange. That's why she ordered to realize a urine culture. I got the urine culture but no bacteria came out. - On July 17 I decided to visit a Urologist. He examined me physically (again). And he told me that I didn't have anything unusual on my penis, just a little red. That's why he decides to perform the prostate exam. When he is examining me, I can say that it hurt a little, but I don't know if it was because of the pain that I already had in my penis or if it was the prostate. The thing is that he told me that I have a prostatitis and that can be cured with a series of antibiotics. He prescribed me 3 injections (3 days), plus 7 days of antibiotic pills. He also told me that the discomfort could take 1 or 2 months. - The first day I started the antibiotic treatment was horrible. Here is when I started to feel really bad. I began to feel weak and unwilling to do anything. But I thought that was normal because of antibiotic, so I continued with the treatment. Halfway through the treatment I didn't feel any improvement. I called the urologist, to explain how I have been feeling, but he told me that I had to finish my treatment. - This is when I start to worry. That's why I contact the girl I slept with to explain my concern. She told me that she could gladly support me, but she didn't suffer from any illness, that in her life she had only slept with one man (her ex-husband). And I'm the Second one. Then she suggested to me to see another urologist.  - On July 27 I visited a second urologist with the girl. He performed (again) a physical exam and a sonogram. He didn't find anything strange. He only saw that my penis was a little red. He told me that it can't be prostatitis because I'm so young and there is nothing unusual about the tests. He believed that during sex, I probably hurt my penis. And he only gave me some pills to calm the pain. He also says that just in case we take a pill of azithromycin (antibiotic). And that's all... - Obviously I didn't experience any improvement. So I call him to explain, and he prescribes me a hydrating cream (this was useless and worst, the burning feeling didn't go away). - At this point my desperation increased and I decided to start looking on the internet. This is when I meet Mr. VHS. This is why I decide to go to a laboratory and take the igm and igg tests for both HVS-1 and HVS-2. - After 3 days the I get the test results: igM HVS-1 negative, igG HVS-1 positive, igM HVS-2 negative, igG HVS-2 negative. I send these results to the urologist and he tells me that these tests do not mean anything. He told me that I have no lesions and that virus is present in almost everyone, that this is not the cause of my pain. - Here I begin to fall into depression. The pain didn't decrease and that burning sensation was always there. - August 6 I saw a family general practitioner, he told me the same thing as the previous doctor. That herpes is not the cause, that I don't have any lesions. - August 14 I decide to visit another urologist (a third one). It told me that the cause "could be" the HVS-1 virus. But that physically he didn't see anything. He explained me that the sores can be very small and not seen with the naked eye. He prescribes me valacyclovir for 7 days. The first three days I didn't feel any improvement. On the 4th day the symptoms decreased a little, but they did not disappear completely and at the end of the treatment the symptoms continued. - August 18 I visited a dermatologist because I'm starting to get a rash on my cheeks. I explain my situation and she also examines my penis. Regarding my cheeks, she says it's dermatitis. And that she doesn't see any herpes lesions on my penis. She says that I don't have herpes on my genitals, and recommends a moisturizing ointment (which hasn't helped at all). - I contact the doctor again at the end of the treatment. I tell him that the symptoms have gone down a bit but that I still feel a burning sensation. He prescribes painkillers, but does not prescribe any more antivirals. He just tells me that if I continue to be in this condition, I should get circumcised (because I am not). - There is a maximum of 1 or 2 days that the pain decreases. But it come back again. - August 21 I visit a last urologist (a very expensive one), he practice me a physical exam. He does not find any lesions. I have my prostate examined again. And he thinks it's prostatitis. With regard to the HSV-1 test, he told me that almost the entire population has it, and that it's usually found in the mouth. He gives me a treatment of antibiotics for 20 days. But I still have the discomfort. I don't really know what to do. I don't know what I have in my intimate parts. I am very tired. On one side the igG test says that I have the virus, but I've never had cold sores or something in my lips or around my mouth. And I don't have any lesions in my genitals. I've already been treated with antibiotics and antivirals. What do you think about this? Do you have any suggestions?

      Just wanted to provide a quick update. I had my EMG and MRI that did not provide any insights for my nerve pain. I have increased my gabapentin to 1200mg a day. That seems to be helping. I have a follow up appointment with my PCP in a month. I’ll update this as thread as I have more info.

      The last time Mike spoke about this he said they were planning to start guinea pig studies in September. Hopefully they did. But even if they didn't, it would likely start in the next month or two. They said it's going to take at least a few years to complete.

      Hey Mike. Do you know if FHC started there genia pigs  study yet ?  Thank you
    • hk81
      I agree with Franky26. It's the first time that gene editing is done in humans for a virus. Sterilizing or not, the results will show to the world the effects from it and its safety and it will possibly motivate other researchers to follow the same approach
