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.

      Hi everyone,
      First off - Apologies for the long post! This site and all the followers are very helpful so thank you all for the support. Random internet and google searches are scary endeavors and do not provide much help....so thanks again.
      To my story: 
      Day 0: I hardly remember this and was heavily intoxicated (didn’t remember for a week later), but ultimately had unprotected sex with a CSW. I have never done this before and pretty ashamed of myself and have no clue how it even happened. It is what it is...
      Day 2: Fast forward two days and I formed a single, but large blister on my upper lip. Basically, poster board material for an oral herpes-1 example. At this point, I still did not even remember my actions and I do not recall ever having an oral blister in the past so I thought I might have gotten it from smoking or drinking after someone, but freaked out nonetheless. Also, lymph nodes were swollen for 2 days tops.
      Day 5: Realized some red spots on penis head. No blisters and looked more like a red blotchy rash. Never formed blisters or sores but became very sensitive with my whole penis head irritated (just like chafed skin, no fluid or sores or scabing but glands on right and left side were the most sensitive and looked like very very minor papules). No fever, headaches or any other signs. Very minor discomfort while urinating but I might have psyched myself out. Resembles balantis from what I have seen on the internet.
      Day 10: Symptoms on penis subsided but still kind of sensitive. I was really freaked out at this point and got tested on this day. Full STD test including HIV RNA PCR and HSV igg test. Everything was negative except for the HSV-1 igg. My reading was extremely high @ 42.9. The testing liaison said that I must’ve been exposed before and had antibodies already present since this reading could not be this high only 10 days after 1st exposure. I have never had cold sores for what I can remember, but it seems like it could’ve been dormant since childhood. Is this true?
      Day 15-20: I did not think much about the HSV-1 since they said I already was exposed and didn’t have any noticeable signs on my genitals until i was washing with soap in the shower and felt a burn on my groin crease. The burning was pretty high up near the top / start of the crease from the thigh. After further inspection, I had reddish/purple/slightly-whitish streaks down both of my groin creases meeting under my scrotum and to my butt. Some lesions and dry skin breaking at the top where the soap touched. Never saw any blisters or scabing. It does not itch or burn unless I rub or mess with it. I have had random tingling down the outside of my balls for the last few weeks. No other neuro-pain to my knowledge
      Day 38: Now I am very freaked out and the streaks have not subsided. I have had scattered pimples, and fordyce spots (I have always had fordyce spots so this wasn’t concerning). The pimples are almost entirely on hair pores and have not clustered or blistered or scabbed. Look like whiteheads for the most part. I have been messing around with them recently so some have turned red on the outside. Also, my genitals have looked really shiny (lol) and scrotum looks like it has a blotchy rash. 
      I have convinced myself that this is Herpes and will confirm with additional testing this week, but wanted to get the forums thoughts beforehand since all these test have a band of confidence and reliability. I am not sure the swab will be useful given this long of a timeline.
      Pictures are linked below. Anyone have any thoughts? Best case scenario: this is a big fungal infection outbreak and I need steroids and cream ASAP. Worst case HSV-1 or HSV-2. I guess this could be HPV but that is a road I will cross once I address the herpes possibility.

      Hi 
      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? 
      Thank you.

      It's been three months since possible exposure. Last night a shooting pain inside my vagina woke me up. I feel the constant urge to urinate and have thigh and butt pain on and off. Today I kept having pain in one spot inside my labia and now it's all red and I see a tiny red spot. It doesnt hurt to touch but there is red and pain along the inside of my vagina. I go to the doctors tomorrow to get retested. I feel like no doctor wants to help me and don't really listen. It's so scary and frustrating.

      I haven't check out all of this site; however I cannot see how reducing stigma over herpes infection should involve denial. It states on their website people shouldn't be scared for rare circumstances but fails to admit that this virus can be transmitted via objects in some circumstances.

      PLEASE IF YOU HAVE A LESS THAN USUAL EXPERIENCE LET THESE PEOPLE KNOW THEY DO NOT REPRESENT YOU.

      Hello. 
       
      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. 
       
       
      Symptoms experiences  
      smegma more more than usual. Sometimes dry skin peels off (very little)
      no itch, no burn,

      Who said it was hard to believe? It's possible that it causes some Alzheimer's but its also possible that herpes merely takes advantage of a brain weakened by Alzheimer's rather than being the causative agent. This theory is a well-documented by experts. The fact is that they have no proof either way. Links do not prove anything and are often proven incorrect as causative agents. To further complicate things, they fully expect that Alzheimer's may have several causes. Therefore, the best way to handle it at the moment may be to reverse the damage with a cure which would likely work for all causes or at least most. It may be easier to fix for now and then prevent later as they learn more about the various causes. They may be on the brink of that now.

      I have to agree. Only American companies are under the jurisdiction of the FDA but why do they extend their influence over all treatments and medicines globally cos they are corrupt yeah. Makes sense

      Dear Mike, I have access to academic resources. If you would like to have a look at the original report, you can tell me your email. Note that it's only for personal use of HSV cure research survey.

      I got it from my ex-girlfriend from India. Break up after that. Now moving to canada.

      In my opinion the FDA are the biggest scammers out there. From my side as a mother who had to see my Daughter be infected because of the terrible misrepresentation of Pharmaceutical medications (Valtrex) I think that the FDA has a lot to answer for.  They take their funding and bonus's to approve dangerous medications which have later turned out to be deadly.  They approve and endorse sugar with no limitation or regulation although it's the biggest cause of heart disease, diabetes and obesity.  All because they are part of the bigger business scams out there to keep the population dependent on antivirals for life.  I know I would much rather a natural solution for my Daughter than the toxic medications the FDA endorse.
