Hello

I was diagnosed with hsv1 one year ago and since that time I never had any sex relationship and I don’t know if I will ever have one

No outbreaks but very tiny single pimple in my lips from time to time which doesn’t look like herpes

I know most of you have enlarged lymph glands at first and then go back to normal 

mine is still not normal and when I get stressed out it just get more bigger right under my jaw and ears 

The ones uder my jaw I can feel it all the time 

I also still have diarrhea 

doctors says that because you have a chronic stress after the first symptoms thinking it was HIV  and that the stress damaged my colon which causing the diarrhea untill now(I dont know about that). first symptoms which were enlarged glands, ferver , diarrhea , burning sensation in my forearms.

So I don't know maybe some of you had the same current symptoms lasts for one year ( enlarged lymph glands(always) , diarrhea(always) and burning sensation forearms(once in a week). Any Idea will be appreciated

Hey and welcome @Flyno

I am guessing you had a battery of tests and IgG HSV-1 was positive? 

What that almost certainly means is that you have a childhood infection of oral HSV-1 and have no living memory of cold sores. This scenario is pretty common.

Hey @WilsoInAus thanks fo the reply

no we don’t have a history of hsv1 or hsv2 in my family and by that I mean never based on tests

my Igg was positive 35.30 in the test I did year ago 

I got the infection after having sex for the first time in my life 

 

thanks again

That is most unlikely. Almost certainly you have an oral infection from childhood.

Do you experience outbreaks?

Im sorry but there is a history of cold sores in every family! There is less than a 10% chance that your parents haven’t got HSV between them. Essentially 0% that all your close family do not have HSV for at least one of them.

As 70% of people have HSV-1 you are actually MORE sexually compatible than not having HSV-1.

Tremendous news don’t you think?

@WilsoInAus I know what are you talking about but you have to put that in mind that statistics applies on USA and im not from USA

Im sure about what im talking we dont have hsv history and I think thats why im having enlarged lymph nodes for more than 1 year

I got check after the exposure about one week and it was negative and the doctor says come and check after 3 months because of the antibodies

Got checked again 3 months later and was positive

Most countries actually have higher incidence than the US for HSV-1!

This is all confirming what I have said, you have a childhood HSV-1 infection.

Get the pimple tested (PCR).

      More confusion! So the results have come back for both of the partners that I've been with over the last 3-4 years and they are both negative for type 1 and type 2. Where do I go next? Any advice?

      please look through the forum in exact and careful detail and inform yourself of less than usual circumstances to cover yourself.

      auto inoculation is rare and it can happen. off objects is debated but some people claim it happens. some people have experienced it happens easily.

      so you know practice good hygiene. i personal think use a heated towel rail and make sure your towels are fully hot and dry. there were studies in the 80's showing it can live on towels for 75 hours. The herpes association say most experts agree it cannot be caught off a towel. That is most experts not all. Some people end up with it on their body and one has to wonder how? Towels I would guess.

      Things that tend to stay kinda wet or so on. cups are another one that fit that i think.

      I remember being at university once and being in the bathroom while a girl was on the phone to her friend.She thought she had a bite on her face but clear to me someone with herpes had kissed her on the cheek recently, it didnt look typical just her skin peeling. 

      I am not an expert though or a doctor so do your own research.

      Update: The creme that contains the tetrapodal zinc oxide still isn't available at Gorch Fock Apotheke Kiel. I called them today: same status as last year and they have no further information on when and if it will be available again.

      Lilian, the zinc acetate we are talking about here is different from the tetrapodal zinc oxide that you are mentioning. But thanks for the reminder. The ointment that contains the tetrapodal zinc oxide still isn't available at Gorch Fock Apotheke Kiel. I called them today: same status as last year and they have no further information on when and if it will be available again.

      I've had neg swabs but I am sure you'll get it. Follow the process. I haven't read the thread in exact detail, but if you have documentation of doctors mishandling your case when you get/ if you get a poss inform them in writing as well as the medical board I think.  Under diagnosis is as problematic as false pos and reducing transmission is good.
