Still unsure if I’ve contracted Genital herpes. (Hsv1, and I already have it orally for 20+ yrs) Everyone is saying no but I just am not convinced. Just a question for people who have hsv1 orally and genitAlly: do you have outbreaks in both places at the same time?

I have oral herpes since I had 8 years old, but 1 year ago I saw gental herpes, and when I did blood test it show I have only HSV 1 IGG, I ask my doctor he said HSV 1 can be gental herpes.

Did you have an outbreak on your genitals? I have never had a lesion. Just burning sensations for months at a time.

Also my question is, when you have a genital outbreak do you also have an oral outbreak at the same time?

No you do not necessarily have an outbreak in both locations at the same time.

In both these cases, there is really no need to suspect a genital infection.

All you do is tell people they don’t have it! This man wrote that he had a genital outbreak!

No, the oral outbreak disappeared 10 years ago, now I have gental herpes only HSV 1 this is what my doctor told me, Also when the gental herpes show for me it was so so small, also every dot is single and I was not know it is herpes, now it is beggar and more than before. 

I just start to use medicine  4 days ago but I was very late to use the medicine because I had no idea about what I had

An oral infection is for life, you will always have HSV-1 orally.

Wothout a swab there is no reason to suspect a genital infection.

what you describe doesn’t scream herpes.

      Hello world!
      I had my first HSV2 outbreak 8 years ago. 
      The first one is the worst -- the actual outbreak hurts like hell. The outbreak itself was very tiny and localized in a small genital area. However It came with side effects I didn't expect like an acute and intense tingling sensation in my lower back, buttocks, and spread down to my feet/toes. 
      Fast forward years. 
      I rarely get actual outbreaks if ever. 
      But I do experience that intense nerve pain I remember that comes before an outbreak manifests as a skin lesion.
      So now the outbreaks don't happen, but the prodrome pre-tingles happen often. Except now those piercing sharp tingles aren't just perceptible in the aforementioned areas. I feel it all over my body intermittently - neck, shoulders, arm, yes leg and lower back, foot, etc..
      To emphasize, I never experienced any chronic pain remotely similar to "herpes tingles" pre- first HSV 2 outbreak. 
      Several Questions:
      Does this pain sound familiar to you? Has it migrated outside of where it was when you first had an outbreak? When I bring this up to multiple doctors, I'm baffled that they have no idea what I'm talking about. Or don't see the connection between the nerve(?) /lymph node (?) pain / neuralgia/ paresthesia and HSV.  Every time I see a "Lyrica" commercial for fibromyalgia I think to myself, "well this is fucking it. this is what I'm feeling/experiencing in my body." Is there a link between fibromyalgia and herpes? I wonder how many patients diagnosed with fibromyalgia have either HSV 1/ HSV 2/ shingles/ varicella-zoster viruses or something related? It seems to me there is a there there. But I also feel I'm being gas lit by the world and that in general researchers / HCPs are too "embarrassed" to even commit to research around the "not talked about" symptoms of HSV; or even HSV in general.  How can herpes be so "common" and yet not a single medical professional is conversant in the totality of the disease or specializing in it? >_< Not related, but where can I purchase acyclovir cream? That stuff is like contraband in the USA lol.  ugh this country sucks in this arena.

      Every time I have sex, the foreskin of my penis swells.  It looks like a donut around the head, and I’m circumcised.  Tonight, I noticed red splotches that weren’t there earlier today.  They are one the shaft, but most have appeared on my scrotum.  I know I need to get tested anyway, but i’ve Been trying to self diagnose and it’s driving me crazy.  Somethings say it’s balantis.. but that could just be a yeast infection.. but can also be caused by herpes.. the spots haven’t formed into blisters, but they literally appeared out of nowhere.  A few weeks ago, I had experienced a rather intense irritation of the head and foreskin, and that’s when the swelling started.. the glans was extremely sensitive, there was major swelling and redness, and a few raised bumps.. but nothing that popped or leaked fluid.  Also inside the glans looked white, like dead skin cells.. but there was no discharge, but did effect the stream of urine and made it hard and painful to pee.  All those symptoms are now gone.. with the exception of the swelling.  And the red spots are new.

      Having HSV-2 has not bothered me at all for casual sex. I'm just avoiding sex during outbreaks, on suppressive therapy and using condoms every time with casual partners. Since my outbreaks appear on top of my penis, even during an outbreak the risk is minimal if I put a condom on as soon as I take my underwear off.  I guess it might be a slightly different case for a girl as if you have external lesions around your groin you could still infect someone even using a condom. And of course, condoms can break, which has happened to me over 10 times and caused myself to get infected in the first place.  I see it as a much more difficult now having a serious relationship, because I can't feel much with a condom on and really want stop using them. However, I don't want to put my new girlfriend to any risk - I would feel terrible if I infected her.

      Does anyone have experience about people's reactions to Herpes in Asia? Personally I live in Thailand where I also caught the virus as a condom broke 4 years ago.  Unfortunately I infected my ex-girlfriend with HSV-2. This was just after I had caught the virus myself and we had sex before I noticed and realised what it was. In the beginning, a local doctor told me I have just hurt my foreskin with my jeans' zipper and the tests came as negative. After getting tested later it came as positive.  Anyways, my ex-gf (well educated, professional, 26 years old then) she had no idea what Herpes was in the first place. She didn't really care too much about it and didn't bother to get tested. During our 3 year relationship we kept having unprotected sex as usual and she never had any issues until at the end one day. She had a very minor outbreak once and nothing after that (lucky her, no like myself who gets terrible symptoms non-stop). I know she has a strong immune system, because she was never sick despite myself having bad colds quite often. In any case, she could not care less about this virus and didn't mind at all.

      I've seen a lot of hysteria surrounding Herpes in Europe and the US. What has been your experience in South-East Asian countries like Thailand? Do people perceive HSV-2 as a worrying disease?

      The jury is still out as there needs to be additional experiments. Editas' results make me believe dosing was insufficient among other issues.
