my kids

there is a reason

Recommended Posts

I have hsv2 oral. I also have 2 kids under 4. I am scared to pieces that I have spread this to them by accident. My son had small bumps on his lip that he said hurt and my daughter had a red rash on her chin. Any thoughts, suggestions, support would be much appreciated....... Anyone else in a similar situation?

I have a 3 year old. I'm currently in my second scare, and i have genital! It's so hard to not pick out every little ailment around their mouth and call it HSV. I'm hoping my kid just has a small zit, or a cut on her lip, but it's scary nonetheless. I don't have much in the way of suggestions, just TONS of sympathy!

sorry to hear it

Hi catiesmom, sorry to hear you are in a similar situation. Its hard, isn't it? I keep hoping that if they have something that their immune systems are so young they will be very strong against the virus by the time they are older. I talked to the pediatrician about whether to test for it for them. Do you think that is a bad idea? I don't know if it would help or not. I tend to be the kind of person that I like to know so I can deal with it straight up, but this has such a stigma. I am worried that having it in their record (if they have it) could be a big deal at some point. Do you know anything about that kind of thing? Anyone know? Everyone, you are such a help, let's keep supporting one another!

I'm going to have Catie tested. Knowledge is power, and i'd rather she not find out because she gave it to a boyfriend who is mad at her for passing it. If she has it, fine, we'll deal with it. But if she doesn't, i want to try to keep it that way. I plan to have her tested at all of her check ups. There's just no telling! I have gHSV, but the last 2 OBs i've had canker sores (at least, i'm hoping they were), and the fear of passing it on to her is just so real, i want to KNOW. FOR SURE.

I keep hoping maybe they'll come out with the vaccine cause i think Catie would be a perfect candidate for it. Then, of course, there's the risk any vaccine carries.... ugh! Life is such a crapshoot!

      https://imgur.com/a/cVi8yJY 2 weeks ago I had unprotected oral sex. Few days later I wake up with a stinging sensation in my urethra. I don't have any blisters, lesions or redness, my penis looks completely normal from the outside, but the stinging in my urethra is always there. Urinating doesn't make the pain worse. From the research I've done and how my body feels I'm pretty sure I caught genital hsv1. To make matters worse I think I transmitted it to my eyelid by touching my infected penis and then my eyelid which did develop a blister. Can anyone look at my lower eyelid and tell me if it looks anything like herpes?  I forgot to add that the blister is painless, but my eye is a bit watery. Other than that it's fine and my eyesight is good. Considering how this all developed in a matter of a week after I had unprotected sex it can't be much else than herpes..

      Hey I see that they also sell the pill form in 100 mg and 500 mg form. Do you think this is as affective? They have the regular and extract version of the pill. Which would you think is the right one to get? And how many pills per day to get the same effect of say 16 seeds?

      I had an IGG test  and the ranges were out of range and high  HSV 1 was 42 and HSV 2 was 19 so I guess it was accurate but the problem now is I can't figure out when or who I got it from. In 2018 to 2019 when I was with my ex I was STD tested but not sure if herpes was included but my ex was supposed to get tested but refused. I experienced some trauma with him and didn't date until a year and a half later so I'm confused. The guy I dated after the ex who didn't want to be tested I told them a week ago about my results he was trying to be there for me and understanding,I told him to get tested but to request a herpes blood test , because he had no noticeable lesions or bumps ever is what he said and I never noticed any on him now he has shut down all his social media and I can't reach him. Hoping he's okay, I feel bad because in 2018 I did have what I was told it was an abrasion that tingled but at my doctor the day I was tested they told me it wasn't herpes but I think it was only a visible diagnosis. I keep having it reoccur from time to time

      Hello "FeelingLost".... your fears and concerns are understandable but, nothing you've described regarding the sexual encounter would cause you to contract herpes.... further, your symptoms are not herpes related.  Best of all, your doctor is correct, your results don't show any herpes here.  You can relax.... definitely have your GP take a look at things and see what might be causing the symptoms but, again, none of them are typical herpes related.  I wish you the best in terms of talking to your wife about this encounter.... hopefully she will understand and you both can work through this amicably.  We all make mistakes.... be careful not to beat yourself up too hard over this.... you can become so racked with guilt that you start imagining physical symptoms.  Best of luck.... and take care..... come back to the site if you have questions.
