Question....

Recommended Posts

Curious1

I have an itchy rash and small bumps (no sores or lesions) in the genital region (inside of thighs & groin), but nothing anywhere else. Im supposed to go the dr. soon, but just wanted to see if this is probably definitely herpes or not from what you guys have experienced. thanks

I'm afraid the only way to find out is to get tested.

Persaonlly I wouldn't try any meds until I knew the diagnosis.

You should definitely go to the doctor while you still have those bumps. I had my first outbreak almost two weeks ago but my blood test came back negative..since I was just recently infected.. the only way they could tell was by looking at them and taking a culture which came back positive.

yea, i guess ill just go to my normal physician. Hopefully im just over reacting. Ive been looking at pictures of herpes and i dont have any of the those symptoms. Mines just a rash on the inside of my thighs and a few small bumps spread out around there. But no bumps that hurt or anything like that.

Not to be an alarmist but...

I had only a few of the symptoms at first now. I don't have the official test results back yet, but I have every single sypmtom known to mankind now and a partridge in a pear tree. My doc started me on valtrex as a precaution. Just be careful, keep your hands off and keep them clean. I wish you the best and hope like hell it's not what you think it is.

Mine started the same way...just on my rectal region and no where else.

Small painful bumps that after 2-3 days turned into blister-like lesions.

      @Talx2520 based on what you say, Im not sure the odds exceed 50/50 that you have genital herpes. If you take a random genital infection from vaginal sex then about 95% of the time it’s HSV-2. How long after the episode was the blood test?

      Thanks for the response! My first suspected outbreak was definitely painful. Started with what felt like a UTI, then noticed what looked like ulcers starting 1.5 days after unprotected sex. Never scabbed over, but I had a horrible itch that lasted 2  weeks (didn't feel like yeast). Given my symptoms, I've pretty sure its genital herpes, but I mean it could have been some allergy (I had extremely rough intercourse in the middle of the wilderness, sorry if that is tmi lol and maybe naive of me to think it was a weird plant). Both my mom, sister, and grandma get coldsores and I feel like i've totally shared drinks with them even during their outbreaks. Can't remember if I ever had one though. I am not totally sure how I should go about disclosing in general. Should I mention I had a full panel and hsv-1 came up positive and that I am not sure where it is? I really wish I had just gotten it swabbed, but couldn't afford it without insurance at the time. I was under the impression that if it was herpes, it would come back and I could get it swabbed, but I realize now that with HSV-1 that isnt always the case.

      @viralfrog given your symptoms do not react to any known antiviral doesn thatvsuggest these are not herpes lesion?  Lets apply Occam’s razor here.

      @Lulupazoola I have tried with a straw but it's difficult to create enough suction if the straw is deep enough in your throat  After drinking 6g from a shotglass I immediately drink a glass of water to dilute it down the throat.  Little update: blisters, redness and lethargy are back today. I'm still off the antivirals completely and my outbreaks are not any worse than usual for now. That's interesting, it seems I don't react at all to Acyclovir.

      Technically speaking, someone with a strong immune system could have a mild initial outbreak. Normally, they would remain mild and decrease over time. However, if you put yourself in a situation later that gives a big hit to your immune system (e.g. binge drinking, other illness, no sleep etc.) you could have a bigger outbreak as a result.
