Although I disagree with some of this article regarding it not being a big deal, it’s good someone like VICE wrote about it since they have a pretty large audience.


Herpes: Welcome to the Disease You Probably Have

“ A common STI check up covers a lot, but not herpes. When I asked why herpes wasn't included in the STI check, I was advised basically to not poke a sleeping bear. If I requested a blood test to look for antibodies to HSV1 or HSV2, it would burden me with disclosure even if the virus was only present due to coldsores. My doctor was essentially telling me to preserve my plausible deniability.”

II can't stand all these articles claiming herpes as not a big deal. And most of us have it so who cares. It frustrates me to no end. Especially those of us who do have it that buy into it. It is a problem. It's uncomfortable, it hurts, it's embarrassing. And it can be dangerous. Infants die every year, some people have it so bad they can hardly walk, people who get it in their eye can go blind, in rare cases theres incephalitis. I'm so annoyed. I can't stand it.

      Can applying lotions, creams, or ointments prevent an outbreak?
      (Lemon balm, essential oils, propolis.)

      Had sex two weeks ago, a few hours after shaving vigorously down there. Also have been going to the gym a lot and sweating, wearing tight clothing. About a week ago, these marks appeared (one on testicle, two small ones on shaft), which look like an in grown hair/ shaving irritation. Urgent care said not to worry, but I am still paranoid. I am going to get tested once enough time has passed, but do these look like any very serious? I know I posted this on another forum, but this one seems more appropriate. No pain or other symptoms for a first out break.

      So I had sex about two weeks ago. Prior to having sex, I shaved aggressively around my Pubic area. I also work out regularly and wear tight clothing, which traps the sweat. 36 hours after having sex, I noticed these small red spots around the areas I shaved, and a little beyond. They were not painful, and did not itch. I got evaluated by the urgent care who told me not to worry and gave me some cream. About a week after the sex, and a week ago from today, a pimple like spot appeared on my Testicle where I shaved. Still no itching or other symptoms but it has been here for a week. What could it be? Am I being paranoid? My friends wife who is a nurse already assured me it doesn’t look like herpes, As well as urgent care.
