I'm losing more hair than usual and not on any suppressive meds.
Was wondering if anyone else experienced this hsv2 diagnosis or even hsv1 diagnoses
If so how did you solve the problem?
I’m really confused about what is going on at the moment. I contracted HSV2 11 years ago was outbreak free for 7 years then started getting OBS but very mild around my period I was in a relationship so I went on suppression it will be two years on suppression in May 2019.
For I wound say the last year I have had near constant shooting pains down my legs/ feet sometimes in other areas of my body like hands Arms spine soemtimes and around my buttocks I soemtimes even feel it in random places like my head etc. I also get a very itchy and swollen labia minoria soemtimes and just a burning feeling down below. It feels like something is there but when I look and with a light I can see notning. This is usually worse at night I’ll wake up in the morning and it will be gone but through the day it will start again especially from friction of walking etc.
I was on acyclovir but I changed to vacyclovir to see if it made a difference the first week I thought it did but this sensations are now back again. I’ve upped my dose and still the symptoms remain I also take olive leaf and lysine. I have no visible sores at all and I’ve not had a single sore since starting suppression apart from a very mild one when I was very stressed and pregnant and ran out of tablets.
My doctor at the GUM clinic ( sexual health clinic in UK) thinks this is not herpes related she said if the sores have stopped then the meds are working and this could be another skin condition down below. But I have leg pains itching and burning which to me is all symptoms of HSV.
I have thought to myself herpes doesn’t behave like that and doesn’t come at night then go away in the morning then back at night but I don’t see what else this could be.
When I had blisters I never got nerve pain I had the usual tingling in vagina when you just know one is coming I don’t have this anymore since being on suppression.
I honestly would rather have mild OBS every few weeks that last a few days than these constant symptoms. I feel contagious 24 7 and I wound even risk having sex.
Does anyone know what this can be ? Is it Hsv ? If it’s stopped my blisters wouldn’t it stop symptoms all together ?
I had some recent burning down on my outer labia, wasn’t sure if it was a vaginal infection or irritation from a new soap I was using. Then I used Monistat since I wasn’t sure and the whole lady area swelled as an allergic reaction from it. I went to visit the OB to verify and we tested for STIs anyways and no visible sores anywhere. All results came back negative. However HSV2 igg test came back at 1.07 equivocal. My doctor told me I was positive. I have no clue what to believe? The CDC says low values should be retested with the WB. I’ve also had no lesions, blisters or nothing. Anyone experience this? Any advice on what I should do? Thank you!
I had a mildly risky encounter. The girl had a bf for 1 year so that's a good sign. After they broke up we slept together a few times. Always using a condom. But on aug 26 we did not use a condom for sex. A week later I was moving into a new house and I legit wore the same underwear for like a week and also didn't wear underwear and wore tight jeans.
About a month later I developed a rash. It was painless. Hardly itched. No blisters or ulcers. Like red rash and partially inflamed skin. This rash all occurred under my foreskin. (I am uncircumcised). And then it went away a day or so after showering. But before it went away it was getting redder and redder.
Another month later a less severe rash returned in the same area. I got std tested and all came back negative. The doctor did not do a herpes test, because there was no ulcers. And he did not do a herpes blood test because I have oral herpes when younger so it would show positive. But he looked at my penis rash and said it's just irritation or something. And gave me some cordrison (or whatever 1%) cream.
This is is the third time that this rash has appeared in the span of 5ish months. It's never painful itchy or whatever.
Gove me me your thoughts please.
smegma more more than usual. Sometimes dry skin peels off (very little)
no itch, no burn,
