So I recently went to my doctor after noticing some spots on my inner thighs, and general genital area. She looks at the spots, and said that they didn't look like herpes and not to worry, but that she would swab one just to be safe. The one that she swabbed was closer to the vaginal entrance, in an area that I thought was a small tear after some rather rough sex. She also gave me a 7 day course of antivirals, that would help if it was herpes. The meds didn't do anything to the majority of the spots, and the one that she swabbed did eventually heal, whether from the medication or from lack of sex, I'm not sure. She called me in for an appointment to tell me that I do, in fact, have HSV2. However, its been almost a month since the spots appeared, the antiviral had no affect, none of them are itchy or painful. I've experienced no tingling sensation, no fever or body aches or anything even remotely resembling flu-like symptoms. My spots look absolutely nothing like the images of herpes I've found online, and not just your general google search. I've checked the CDC website and various other medical websites (no, not WebMD). Does anyone else have herpes outbreaks that look like this? Or have an outbreak with none of the usual symptoms (tingling, pain, blisters, itchiness etc)? I've been reading a lot about herpes and am wondering how accurate the swab tests are/ about false positives. Help??
So i thought i had genital herpes and i still might, my doctor said i did but my blood test came back negative. i had all the symptoms and have been taking the medicine and feel much better. but now idk what to do. so i’m not going to know my results for a little while because of the swab and the person i’m alsmot positive gave it to me is my boyfriend of 3 months. there’s no way i could’ve got it anyway else on my genatils. but i don’t know what can cause what meaning can i have oral sex with him? i wouldn’t let me to me but i would to him and i’m confused if i should or not
I want to die but i am afraid since i got herpes what shoulf i do friends
I am new to the forum and I joined because I am feeling shitty. I was diagnosed 8 years ago and I contracted it from my then boyfriend who became my husband. He did not tell me he was infected, I doubt he even knew but I am angry now because I found it that he was cheating on me.
We are currently going through a divorce and it makes me afraid that I won’t find someone who won’t scorn me. My mood is fine as long as I don’t have an outbreak but as soon as I have one I get depressed, I feel dirty, feel hopeless and it keeps me awake at night. I am so frustrated and I keep asking myself “Why me?”. Has anyone else ever felt this way? How do you cope?
https://imgur.com/a/Wj2dETS Hi all, about 2 days ago I started to feel intense pain on my labia majora, looked down and saw 2 rather large open sores( 1 on either side). The pus (normal looking yellow) from the sores have stopped this morning. A day later, there was a blister that formed in my pubic area. In addition to this, there is skin shedding whenever I wipe after a pee ( it doesn't hurt when I urinate, I don't have a fever).
My only sexual activity has been with a virgin and it was oral (started April 27th and ended June 8th). I've never seen a cold sore on this guy's mouth so I am unsure of what it could be. I'm on holiday for the next 2 days in a humid tropical country (indonesia, where the hygeine levels are appalling) so I don't know if the climate (dust, shower water) could have irritated the skin, as I've been here for 2.5 weeks already.
I have been sweating excessively and I forget to immediately take off my sweaty clothes after a day out. Could that be the cause? Somebody please help this is urgent.
