I've been using Flonase nasal spray (fluticasone propionate nasal spray) on and off for years. Not for my nose but, together with Texa, to correct a pressure imbalance in my ear.
Just reading (edited):
Before using Flonase Nasal Spray, tell your doctor if you have glaucoma or cataracts, liver disease, diabetes, herpes simplex virus of your eyes, tuberculosis or any other infection, sores or ulcers inside your nose, or if you have recently had injury of or surgery on your nose.
Flonase can lower blood cells that help your body fight infections. Avoid being near people who are sick or have infections. Call your doctor for preventive treatment if you are exposed to chicken pox or measles. These conditions can be serious or even fatal in people who are using fluticasone.
Fluticasone can weaken your immune system, making it easier for you to get an infection or worsening an infection you already have or recently had. Tell your doctor about any illness or infection you have had within the past several weeks.
Hmmm... Not that I've had herpes virus of my eyes but my GP's son has. Just things to be aware of.
I would really appreciate some advice for my current situation. I had something quickly come and go over the weekend so wasn't able to get it checked by a doctor. I talked to my mum who gets coldsores regularly and told me it was nothing and that I should just stop worrying. I did that but now I'm not so sure. I'll summarize the info below:
Friday night noticed something a bit sensitive in my nose, just inside one nostril, ignored it as I've had ingrown hairs before and assumed it was just that. No itching or burning present. Didn't look at it because I wasn't really concerned. Saturday afternoon felt something release, not a pop per say but what ever it was it broke the skin. I went to look at it straight away but didn't see a blister or anything, I squeezed the cut(? not sure how to describe) to get liquid out and a clear liquid drained from a small red sore just on the inside of nostril. At this point I took some photos, one of the liquid. There was probably about 5 drops about the size of the photo in all. Then it stopped and there was a tiny sore also pictured. Sunday morning basically all gone, the skin may have been a bit pink or dry but I kept pawpaw ointment on it. Monday thought about going to the doctor but there was nothing there so seemed silly. Didn't have any pain at all over the weekend. Here's the kicker though, my girlfriend had a coldsore show up on Friday, we had last kissed on Wednesday morning, which means she could have been in the predrome stage. I haven't had a cold sore before and I'm a bit of a hypochondriac with this stuff so I don't really trust my own opinion.
What do you guys think? And what do I do now?
Really appreciate any help. Thanks a lot!
Hello, does anyone has experience with herpes of the eyes if so please share your symptoms. I received a H diagnosis in 2012 but recently have experienced eye irritation for about 2 weeks. It hasn't been everyday. Is it possible to get infected in the eye area after having for 5 years.
Im posting this again but because this is so weird that nobody has answered. I suspect of having herpes in my throat, my ex bf used to have cold sores in his outer lip and they just disappeared in one day. I attach one picture of what my throat looks like. I will go to the doctor's to next week, but Im pretty sure I have herpes (I have read a lot about it and also experienced many simptoms) and I would like to talk to someone who has herpes in their throat meanwhile.
Sorry to bother,
hope sb can help!

Hi there! First of all, I'll give you a bit of my back story so that you know where I'm coming from. I found out that both my partner and I were positive for herpes when I was pregnant with my first child. We had been monogamous for several years and are not sure who had it first. I had gotten tested for all STDS during one of my first obstetric appointments and after getting my results, my husband got tested too. I had never needed or thought to get tested before that time because I had always practiced safe sex outside of very long term relationships, only had unprotected sex with two men in my life, and have always lived a fairly conservative lifestyle. Anyway, probably more importantly I also never had any symptoms that I recognized as being herpes. I never had cold sores hardly ever and never had any breakouts.
Now to today! Lately I've been getting what appears to be some type of large sores on my tongue. I know that everyone gets irritating bumps on their tongues from time to time, but these have been literally like cold sores. They are large (the size of a number 2 pencil eraser, painful, and kinda like blisters). I have also been getting what feels like large painful pimples in my nose. I have a cold right now and I literally cannot blow my nose because it hurts too much to touch. These are once again, very large and very painful. I can't see the most recent one in my nose as it's a bit too deep in, but I can feel it and it's definitely large. The last one though, was average pimple sized. It was also quite painful though!
My question is this.. could this be a symptom of my having herpes? Is it more likely a cold symptom? Should I take some of my husbands Valtrex? Would that help? And should I talk to my doctor about getting my own medication for a break out? Obviously, if I decided to take someone else's medication I would call my doctor and let them know or ask them about doing so beforehand!
Thanks for any and all info! It's appreciated!
PS. I apologize if the picture is difficult to see. It's an attempt at a picture of what I've got going on on my tongue! Haha
