Hey everyone! Im from malaysia. Im not sure if i am infected with Hsv 2. But im getting this weird itchiness all over my bodyBy Triple-L
Hey everyone. Im 25 and from malaysia. Been itching for few days now. The last time i itched like this was a month and half ago. I was told if you have Hsv 2 you would have gotten sore or lesion around genital area. My case, i don't see any lesions or sores around my genital. I've been itching randomly all over my body and been getting like tingling sensation. Is this herpes? How would i know if its herpes? Im scared to death to get checked. Living with my family.. Honestly i dont know what to do
Has anyone ever heard of capturing the secretions of your herpes breakout in tiny medical jar so that the virus can be collected and put into pills so that you can take them on the daily as a way to prevent recurring outbreaks?
I had a naturopath suggest this option to me as a way to decrease outbreaks. He even gave me the jar to capture and bring back to him whenever I have my next outbreak. Something about reintroducing your own herpes virus into your body helps build your immune system? Anyway someone there testified to it working for them for the past 6 months so I'm actually considering it. What do you guys think?
In the study, published in the medical journal Nature, researchers were able to show an inhibitor could be developed to break down the herpes virus associated with Kaposi's sarcoma. Scientists say the research could help in the development of antiviral drugs for both herpes and the Epstein-Barr virus which researchers believe have almost identical structure, a UCLA Health release said. The Epstein-Barr virus is estimated to be present in over 90 percent of the adult population
So I had a rash on my vag. Peeling skin, burning and swollen. Two doctors confirmed it was an allergic reaction to clyndomyacin. While they were checking, they ran an STD test which showed I was positive for chlyamidia. I took meds and cleared that up. My urgent care doctor said I should do a follow up visit and check for syphillis and HIV because those are sometimes connected with Chlamydia. I then went and got tested & my primary care doctor also put on a herpes IgG blood test. All my results were negative except HSV2 I tested as follows : HSV1 negative .02 & HSV2 positive 8.0. In my head I was thinking there no possible way I’ve never had a bump lump lesion nothing ever that resembled herpes before. I did tons of researching and freaking out. My doctor then calls me on Monday and told me “all your tests are negative you do not have any STDs” and i said no no no hold on my “mychart” says I’m HSV positive and it’s a high positive and she said correct you have had it in the past but not currently. And I said that doesn’t make sense once you have it you always have it and she said yes it stays dormant but because you have never had a break out it’s notning to worry about and I’m STD free. I then called my Gyno and asked her the exact same thing & she said “your primary care doctor should not have given you that test that test has a very high rate of false positives and being that you have never had symptoms of herpes in your life it doesn’t make sense that you have herpes. She then told me “your other doctor was correct to presume your test is negative and your STD free” and I said so I’m good I have nothing to worry about? & she said “nope if you ever see a lump bump or open sore I want to see you immediately, however I don’t see that happening” (side note all I could see were the test results not any extra notes or anything else that doctors can see)
shoukd I still be concerned ? Should I tell future sex partners i have HSV2? Should i get another blood test ? Do I have herpes or not ?
Hello, its me. I'm just a brown skinned, young woman with H-S-V. I've tried to change...... my avi, but nothing seems to work so someone pleease he-elp me.
All jokes aside, hey y'all! I realized something was up in Nov 2016. My, once very smooth, lips were feeling chapped and a little bumpy. I was confused. My top lip tingled.... and then tingled some more. For some days, I sat & pondered & researched. Then I came to a realization. These were cold sores.
REWINDDD to about 3 weeks before then , I had smoked a blunt (i dont smoke anymore btw yippy!!) with 2-3 others. They were my seasonal coworkers. About 2 weeks after that, I was out of weed (and I was fiendin') so I smoked the end of "this dude"s cigarette (searching for a high i guess)!! "This dude" was an old friend of my mom's and was staying with us for a little while. Who was the culprit?? WE WILL FIND OUT ON THE NEXT EPISODE OF 'WHO DONE IT'!!! jk the world may never know.
Mind you, I am a virgin and at that time, hadn't kissed anyone in 2 years more/less.
Weeks pass as I watch it unfold. My confidence slowly plummets.
FAST FORWARD to June 2017. I couldn't take it anymore. I was embarrassed and did not want to be out in public. I had been having outbreaks almost every 2 weeks. Once one outbreak was done, the next was ready to take it's spot!!! I decided to go to the doctor for pills *DUN DUN DUNN*
I took pills for about 4 months and felt like, each day, i was swimming in a pool of hypocrisy! I say this bc my mom is on maybe 5-6 different pills (for high cholesterol, joints, etc) and I am always advocating for natural ways to heal herself. I soon decided I was not going to refill the meds!! I began to research.......
I know I am taking a lot of yall's time so I'm gonna FAST FORWARD again. After the one year mark, Nov 2017, the outbreaks became less noticeable. I feel that my yoga, meditation/ de-stressing & clean eating, have something to do with that.
.....will talk soon, peace.
