anal fissures?

Recommended Posts

Newtothisandscared

Hi Everyone, 

     Does anyone else suffer from anal fissures? I am working on a better bowel regimen (fiber, more water, etc.), but they have seemed to have worsened since acquiring ghsv-1....I get no lesions like my ghsv outbreaks produce, just fissures....

Yes I get fissures too, it's very annoying and uncomfortable since getting what I think is ghsv-1. I had never gotten them before.

Hey i get them too, but mine hasn't healed its been over a year, and now i just have  more. My doc says its not gh-1 but i know for a fact it is. Are yours chronic? Mine literally haven't healed or gone away even when given 3 day treatment of valtrex

Are the fissures actually the herpes virus or just because you have it. I don't think Ive had another OB since my first one but sometimes it does feel sore at the back. I never see anything though, just feel it.

I get them too.  I've had them tested for the virus,several times, but it comes back negative.  My GYN told me it would as when he looked down there, he said it doesn't look like herpes.  I think, sometimes ppl just get fissures due to either hard or loose stool.  Also, when you have herpes, you think every pain, lump, etc is due to an outbreak.  Not always the case.  Take a hot bath with epsom salt will help with the healing.

anal fissures are annoying, especially if they persist.  

HSV has been implicated in causing constipation.  So, indirectly, it could be making anal fissures worse.

      Has anyone experienced an anal fissure from hsv1? As an initial episode or a recurrence? Problems healing it too...

      I slept with this guy and two days later had an anal fissure, abdominal pain, felt sick etc. my blood test shows i have hsv1. However the fissure has not healed, just got worse overtime... and its been Over a Year! I was prescribed 3 day supply of 500mg valtrex by gyno. Everytime I try the valtrex (ive tried it 3 times over the past year)... the fissure never heals! Ive taken 2 cultures over the past year and each came back negative for hsv. My gyno claims i dont gave GH, but I KNOW i do, i get itchy areas on my butt cheeks sometimes, and small individual pimples from time to time on butt. Im so confused because i know this has to be hsv, but treatments not helping and doctor wont treat me because the cultures came back negative. Now recently ive been getting what i think is an outbreak all over my scalp! That has never happened before, why all of the sudden now?? Is nothing healing because of stress? Seriously its been a year now
       
      I got a colonoscopy too 6 months after i think i "contracted it" because of the abdominal pain and they found some ulcers in small intestine. They said it could be a mild case of Crohn's disease but even the doctor is not sure. So between the anal fissure and intestine problems they say its crohns but all signs point to hsv1 to me.

      Hi there,  Long time lurker, first time poster, and I'll keep it simple and condensed.  I've only signed up because I realize the depths of suffering some people are in, trying all sorts of desperate treatments, and I've basically been sitting on something that has taken me to near 0 outbreaks (hsv1 genital). When I first got infected some years back, I had an atypical presentation--no pain or itching, but permanently there. Bumps going up and down within the same day even, but pretty much permanently covering the head of my penis. Doctor swabbed it--came back hsv 1; he said it looked like it to him too.  Now to the meat of it--rubbing alcohol. Its simple, and I'm pretty surprised that I've only seen it mentioned once here--a woman was talking about it, so I assume it works for girls too. I apply once daily, to once every 3 days, and that keeps me pretty much permanently outbreak free.  It quite literally went from every day broken out for me to just about nothing. Anyway, to the what and where of it all...    I use 99% isopropyl. 70% seems good too. I now have a spray bottle, but used to just dump it on the head and roll my foreskin up over it for like 20ish seconds--whatever process is actually happening, I like to think I'm facilitating absorption into the soft tissue by doing this and wreaking havoc on the virus. Obviously, you may have to do it a bit differently, genital depending. I've been doing this treatment for a few years now, so it has staying power. I read once that herpes is shreded by alcohol, so if true, I guess that explains it? However, iterupting regular treatment seems to have anecdotally, but not with great surety, made the herpes a bit less suceptible to the alcohol upon resumption.  Yes, it burns terribly at first. Over time it gets better. Some days it still really burns, and in those cases I advise listening to your body and cutting the countdown short. Other than that, it feels really damn good to basically tell herpes to eff off.  I don't know what kind of health risks there are. Or whether using a high % grain (drinking) alcohol would work / be healthier. I advise asking your doctor--afterall, alchohol is implicated in throat cancer. Who knows if 20-30 seconds daily on your junk can do something too.  But for those who struggle constantly, I truly hope this can help someone other than just me.    I also hope that this finds its way to the right forum. I wanted it in a place where casual, straight from Google, viewers would see it when they came here, and I'm hoping--and asking, please--that if I didn't get it in the right place, a moderator can instead. And, should it help as I suggest, perhaps even stickying it one day.  I'm sorry in advance, I'm not a big forum person and don't come here crazy often. It just felt like something I should do for everyone else's sake. Hopefully you can excuse me if I'm an absentee topic starter.  Thanks for reading, - Taylor

      Hey @Jazz923 they don’t look like herpes lesions, more like pearly papules that some guys get.  I’d suggest these are independent of your herpes status. The question of your herpes status will depend on the test that you had. What test suggested you had HSV-2? Was it a blood test?

      So I guess I'm just on here for a bit of a rant, as today I woke up with my second outbreak in a month! My initial one was only at the end of April, and even after investing in a load of vitamins, lysine etc I'm in this situation again. I was hoping I'd be one of those who never gets another outbreak, but apparently not.  I think the problem is, I really liked my life before all of this crap, and I don't really want to have to change anything. Going to the gym is amazing for my mental health, and i normally go around 4 times a week. I also love a bit of chocolate every day (but I eat super healthy for the majority of the day) and being a uni student, I'm partial to a few cocktails and late nights every month as well. This is my time to socialise with my friends and have some fun. At 21 you really don't want to be taking your life too seriously.  Does anyone else just feel annoyed about having to switch up a happy life that they enjoy? I understand there's a lot of people who had unhealthy lifestyles before their diagnosis, that went on to lose weight which is great! But I'm already slim and active, and I eat freshly cooked food every day with lots of fruit and veggies.  I'm starting to believe that the only way to avoid an outbreak is to sit in my flat eating salads all day and have no contact with anyone else (in case of stress). Like I legit feel like I need to wrap myself up in cotton wool and just not allow myself to have a life at all. I'm so frustrated that I have to stop doing the things that I love. I'm going travelling next month, and I would bet all the money that I have that I will get another outbreak, because of the plane journey, late nights and alcohol. I just want to be a normal 21 year old who gets to enjoy her life! Does anyone else feel the same?

      The meds work the same as long as you take them every day (some are one a day, some are multiple times per day). They cost money, but there is no reason you can't take them for life. Most people would just take the meds, but if you are married for 20 years and the meds are annoying for some reason, and you don't care about it, then maybe don't bother? It's up to the two of you. Skipping the daily meds would increase the risk from 0.7% per year to 1.4% per year (assuming sex 2x per week). That changes it from a 1-in-140 year event to a 1-in-70 year event (assuming you still use condoms every time). To be honest, most married people would probably rather skip the condoms before they skip the meds. It's up to you what measures you take though.
