Recommended Posts

Peace, I’m new to herpes, I don’t even understand the abbreviations. I have looked online but it’s so overwhelming. I was told I had  shingles about almost 2 years ago, and the same little  blisters like rash I would get, which I was told was shingles popped up about an inch from my bikini line. Went it the dr yesterday and was told it’s herpes.(sad).I was aware that shingles is part of the herpes family but ... all I know is now is a different ball game as they say. And I’m feeling lower back pain I’m not sure if this is related? Because when I got my “shingles “ I would get pain in my leg because it was in my back side. Sorry if to long just need to talk to someone.

Actually people here also not professionals but such pains lower back, nerve pain, back pain that people also complain and suspect that herpes can cause, even doctors cant know all about its sympthoms. Its an interesting little bastard virus

Thank you for your response, I figured it had to be because when the burning started really bothering that’s when I felt my lower back. Like now it’s a tight intense feeling.

      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.
