hsv1 coldsore symptoms


Recommended Posts

Some flu like symptons are common. I get headaches and muscle aches before. But when you feel sick or run down. Because your immunity isn't as strong it can result is a sore. As for all your symptoms. Just to be safe. I'd see a doctor. Im not a medical professional but it sounds like something bigger.

I would agree, an established cold sore infection would not result in these sorts of symptoms. Other ailments can weaken the immune system as mentioned and a cold sore emerge.

I had a bad headache and was not feeling well (but was sleeping and eating as normal).  Not sure if HSV1 causes the problems or the other way around.  Not sure if anyone knows that.  I know that I had a tremendous headache.  HSV1 causes a lot of discomfort for me.  One little cold sore.....   At least the last one was gone within 10 days

This virus is linked to your immune system so you are more likely to get the outbreak when you are not well or stressed.  The outbreak would not cause the symptoms it would be the other way around

I’m not disavowed with HSV,  but I share symptoms with people on this board. Over the past few months I’ve has problems with fullness in the ear, headaches, nerve pain, and damage to my eyes. Eye doctor thinks it’s HSV, but I need an eye swab to be sure.

Hang on that’s not the case. The doctor knows full well those symptoms align potentially to long term HSV-1 infections. You cannot do a swab for eye herpes. The diagnosis involves inspection of the cornea. I am not sure why you feel the need to spread misinformation.

Of course you have tested negative for HSV more than three months post possible infection.

It is DANGEROUS to both yourself and others to assume your symptoms are herpes related when they may actually be serious.

Please reflect upon your need to attempt to erroneously validate other people’s symptoms in order to support a baseless interpretation of your own symptoms.

Would you like to call my eye doctor and tell them this?

The cornea is fine, but there is damage to the outside of my eye. Damage she has seen in other patients with herpes of the eye.

I am not making this stuff up.

I doubt this. If the doctor had ANY suspicion that you had herpes around the eye a swab would  have been taken. Gross negligence otherwise.

This is totally insulting to the intellect of our readers.

Mate, it’s time to leave the delusion behind before you do yourself or anyone else real harm.

What do you have to fear by believing you do not have herpes?

That’s why I’m seeing a specialist who can do that. Not every doctors office have swabs available, so maybe that’s the case here.

I’ve called urgent care clinics before to ask if they swab for HSV and many around here said no.

This is irrelevant, I notice you can’t face the REAL question here.

What do you have to fear by believing you do not have herpes?

For your sanity, you are overdue to go to a special, quiet place and ask the universe this question. Your answers are there.

What do you have to fear by admitting that people suffer from HSV in ways different than you think you understand?

Which flu like symptoms though is the issue. Can you please link to the symptoms from a credible source. Genital herpes does not mean you end up with a runny nose for example.

And it has been established that you do not have herpes to cause these symptoms.

Please see a doctor for a diagnosis of these symptoms and report back for the benefit of other readers. Might be best to do this on the appropriate website though, you seem to have stumbled onto a herpes website.

I would say: rundown feeling, general malaise, chills

literally cold sores just make my whole mouth area numb and in pain, especially when i eat food or take a shower. it's super hard too when you are trying not to break open the scab but daily activities tend to make it worse. luckily, i don't get headaches or anything so bless your souls, just a lil runny nose and lots of pain.

 

i have found some natural remedies/OTCs ease the pain. ice for example always makes it feel more numb, but i have to wait until the scab isn't super delicate.

 

i made a parody to 7rings by ariana grande destigmatizing cold sores--

give it a chance:) and if you like it, repost with the hashtag #realslimsorechallenge with your own tips to shorten coldsores everywhere! they friggin suck!!!!! we gotta be here for eachother:)

Yes, I have all of the above. When I get an outbreak of cold sores on my lips, nose or inside my mouth it affects the trigeminal nerve (where the herpes virus lives in the ganglion nerve). I get facial pain, burning, weird eye pain and twitching,  dizziness,  vertigo and brain fog and neck pain. Your not alone and I'm glad I found this forum, to see that others have and are experiencing my similar experiences and I'm not alone. It can be very frustrating,  since the researchers and Drs arent familiar w everything and EA persons symptoms can be different.  Best of luck.

Bumping this thread.

I've been experimenting with food, and my headaches are absolutely triggered by sugar, grains, and the other trigger food people have mentioned on this forum.

It has been pretty well established by your doctors and your description that NONE of your symptoms are related to herpes.

This is a forum dealing with herpes, we are unable to help on the forums those non related symptoms.

An experienced member of these forums has offered to help you work toward a diagnosis.

Are there any outcomes from that process?

You are misinformed.

Search this forum for headaches and you will see pages of results of people with established infections who have headaches.

You have stop putting out false information.

It has been established by your doctors and your description that NONE of YOUR symptoms are related to herpes. Several experienced members with a range of oral and genital herpes types have also reviewed your descriptions and advised you that in their opinion YOUR symptoms are not caused by herpes.

      Hi everyone,
      I have oral and genital HSV1, diagnosed a little over a year ago. I am wondering, does anyone else get oral outbreaks that are primarily inside your mouth and not on your lips? When I get oral outbreaks, mine usually don't come with cold sores around my lips. The sores are only inside my mouth, usually on my gums, and they're pretty painful and annoying, as they get in the way of eating and brushing my teeth. This doesn't seem like a super common presentation of HSV1 because I can't find a ton of info about it online, but I know I'm not the only person whose oral HSV presents this way and I know they're not canker sores. I was wondering if anyone else experiences this and has any tips on how they deal with it. In particular, would love to know if anyone has any good tips for something that reduces the pain while you're waiting for the Valtrex to do its thing
      Thanks!

      I’ve made some posts earlier this month on my presumptive status.
      I was tested 12 days since the initial exposure. The test results are back...
      HSV 1/2 IgG Aby-HSV1 IgG, Type Spec <0.91 (0.00-0.90 index)
      HSV 1/2 IgG Aby-HSV2 IgG, Type Spec  = 1.27 (0.00-0.90 index)
      HSV 2 IgG Supplemental Test-HSV-2, IgG Supplemental Test = Negative
       
      All other stds came back negative. On the 10th day, white stinging cloudy discharge came out of the tip of my penis. 
      It still hurts to urinate, but not as intensely. What looks like “contact dermatitis” on the head of my penis but the bumps are sparsely patched and not filled with pus. On the day of my test, I was given 2 acyclovir and I felt like the symptoms went away for a few days.
      No visible lesions and the culture came back negative.
      But still, I was told to get retested 30 days from initial exposure (so July 18th). 
       
      I will get retested, but from the description provided above, what are the odds that the First test results are accurate and that I do have HSV2?

      Hello there. I'm a 24F, who has  had HSV 1 for 3 and a half years now. I got my first cold sore December of 2016 out of no where when I was 21. I was in school and working at a job that had me very stressed at all time. I came home one day and saw the bumps. Initially, I'd never thought anything of it as my dad always had them when I was growing up. Of course, you go on Google and after about 20 minutes of searching, you are absolutely devastated and disgusted with yourself.
      The first year after my 1st outbreak, I'd occasionally experience some shedding, but didn't get another breakout until the following year. Since that outbreak, I've pretty much steadily had cold sores every month for the last 2 and a half years. I was told birth control would help, because I was noticing outbreaks begin about a week before my cycle. Didn't change anything though.
      Earlier this year, I finally decided it was time to start suppressive therapy, given the fact that I had no success with natural remedies or hormone leveling using the birth control. I've seen no changes in the frequency of my cold sores since starting 1GM of Valcyclovior. It's been about 3 months, and I met with my doctor today to discuss the issue. She basically told me there was nothing she could do and to see a dermatologist. She also gave me the list of vitamins I already to take to try to include with my daily antiviral. I feel completely defeated. I don't know what to do now or if there is any hope. It hurts me so much because I'm so young and nothing has gotten better. Also, I don't think a dermatologist is the answer. Has anyone else experienced this?

      I don't know enough to distinguish if i'm in the healing stage ? it burns 50% less when I use the toilet , a little itching , no pain when I sit , or walk. Also, is the lightened skin normal ? how long does an ob usually last ?

      Does anyone have any advice about applying makeup and removing makeup if you have oral herpes? I'm finding it very difficult to not be wasteful with things like face powder, makeup brushes, tooth brushes and toothpastes, acne medications and moisturizers, and other items like that. I have a terrible fear of possibly spreading something all over my face, so any advice is appreciated. Thank you

      Hey, @WilsoInAus thank you for replying.  Just those symptoms and this thread and some other thread on medhelp, I am so regretted and afraid. Thank you for your kind reply. When such sores come out again, I will definitely have a swab test.  It was so hard to get back to normal life.

      Hey @AlexUobby you have a 16 week test result that is conclusively negative. You have not had lesions at the possible site of entry to your body for the virus.  That does add up to a closed case, no genital herpes (or soup) for you!

      Hey, it has been a while. I have posted before and received great help. But I got a new situation here.  1. A few days ago, I found 2 round scabs on the right side of my butt cheek. And then it occurs to me that I have the similar scabs in this area in January. I can't get a swab test because it has developed scabs.  But to be honest, it really looks like some pictures of herpes. I was very confused. And I noticed some marks of dried blood nearby. Can we say it was not herpes because lesions caused by herpes don't bleed? I have the obsession, always want to use my hand to scratch my butt. Last time it showed up, I thought it might be the cause. 2. Several days ago, I found some cut-like lesions on my right groin, too. The same lesions have showed up on the 21 day of my exposure, but it healed on the 24 day. And I have seen the same lesions showed up on March 24. They were always on my right groin. Never see one on there left. I sent the pictures to 2 doctor online(because of the pandemic), they both thought it wasn't herpes.  The hospitals in my city don't offer swab test,  so I must go to the city nearby. When such lesions show up next time, I will have a swab test.  1) Can we say the first lesions were not herpes because it bleed?  2) Can we say the second lesions were not herpes because the initial outbreak was so short?  3) I know recurrent herpes can show up in the box short area. But is it possible it changes its place in just 5 months?  3 week Capita HSV I and II Igg negative 6 week Capita HSV I and II Igg negative Roche Elecsys HSV I and II Igg negative HSV II Igg = 0.06(0.5~1.0 grey zone) 12 week a test produced by a company call Dia.pro HSV I Igg negative  HSV II Igg positive I did the same test 3 times, the value is 1.2, 1.4, 1.9 16 week Capita HSV I and II Igg negative Roche Elecsys HSV I and II Igg negative HSV II Igg = 0.073(0.5~1.0 grey zone)
