I'm looking for some advice, I'm really struggling to recognize if I'm having an outbreak or not. I've had previous skin conditions of red dots and itchy skin as I had severe eczema as a child which has now thankfully cleared up. However, now being diagnosed with HSV1 gential about 10 months ago, I experience my primary (quite severe) OB and my secondary OB of only one minor lesion, I now find myself mulling over every red dot I find on my genitals. Currently I have a few red bumps under my foreskin which have left me wondering again whether or not I'm experiencing an OB I was also awakened last night my a sudden sharp pang of itching/pain on my penis last night but and unsure if that was just boxers catching me or if it is linked!
I'm finding it very hard to know whether me and my partner are safe to have sex and am feeling it start to effect my confidence and I don't want to keep having to say no because I'm worrying!
I'd really appreciate any advice,
I am pleased that I finally made the jump to join you all - I am an on and off reader since 2013.
First things first, I need your help: Is this photo oral herpes?
The lesion appears half inside the mouth along the permanently wet part , and half outside on the dryer oral mucosa - recurring always between my top and bottom lip, resting on the bottom one and never along the vermillion border.
In reference to the midline, it has been slightly to the left side approximately 4 times over the last 3 years and at least once slightly favouring the right side. Again, it is always half inside, half outside the oral cavity as described and, as you can tell, really small!
no itch, no pain, no prodrome... ever.
However, the most recent outbreak had some mild to moderate aching overnight for the 1 night.
This is a photo of the first occurence, the membrane layer you see there slid off..
My outbreak is just over, sore-wise that is. I got Ghsv1 fom my boyfriend during oral sex (he obviously has hsv1 orally). He is coming over this weekend. My question is are we okay to have sex this weekend? Or shall we wait another week (this has been my only outbreak since my initial in December)? Thank you for always being so helpful and have a great weekend :).
I never really post on here...I never know what to say. But I need y'alls support. I'm constantly afraid that I've given this to everyone around me. I had my primary break out 14 years ago....diagnosed visually...went to my gyno a few days later who said i had nothing to worry about because if it was in fact H I'd still have symptoms. I chose to believe her because ignorance is bliss....so over the next year I get papercut down there...go to the doc...says its just a tear no need to test....one more in the next year...& I'm like oh this is nothing. Okay fast forward to now....I haven't had anything, I had even forgotten all about it, until August2016...the papercut...I'm more mature now so I need to know...i go to my darn good gyno whom I've had for about 6 years...one swab...does the bloodwork too...both positive for hsv1...neg for hsv2....now my problem is I'm constantly checking my kids....so afraid I've passed it Because I also get a tiny blister here & there on my inner lips orally (also didn't know they could be on inner lips...thought they were on the outside...) & I'm guilty of constantly kissing them....my four year old had pink eye a few days ago & I can't stop thinking maybe I've kissed her there. She gets a red bump on her chin & I'm scared to death....I feel like I'm failing as a parent. I can't stand how I feel. I just wanted to share. Thanks.
I know I've asked this before but I don't remember the answer so please help
About 4 years ago I both got oral and gential type 1 herpes at the same time since then I never have had another outbreak and been healthy. My questions are the following:
how many days would I be shedding it roughly both genital and oral I assume genital is less I'd like a rough number?
Is gential hsv1 easily spread?
Is it essitial to disclose both as it is the same virus and oral type can pass to genitals through sexual contact ?
would I be very contagious after no outbreaks after 4 years? I read after one year shedding decreases
Is most asymptotic shedding associated with days before and after you get an outbreak ?
