Hello there, I was recently with a guy about 3 weeks ago and since then I've had bumps under my tongue that hurt really bad. It was hard to eat and drink, the bumps lasted about 3-4 days and were gone. Some other symptoms that I feel are the tip of my tongue is numb and weird feeling and some small white bumps appearing but don't hurt.
My main question, if anybody can help me with, is the guy ONLY sucked my nipples. Can I contract HSV-1 through him sucking on my nipples?
Thanks for any information given.
Saw “Downsizing” this weekend. It’s the new Matt Damon movie. Toward the end (no spoilers— don’t worry), an important scientist in the movie introduces a young man who was the first baby born in the downsized world. The young man smiles and he has a huge, red, glistening cold sore on his lip.
From the audience in the theatre, it was mostly silence. But I heard a few snickers, a few laughs, and a few groans.
My boyfriend, who I had just told of my new HSV-1 diagnosis (and he is my giver but he denies it), leaned to my ear and said, “He’s got the Herpes,” loud enough for the people around us to hear.
At least he didn’t say, “He’s got YOUR Herpes.”
Has anyone read this or tried it?
How can you best protect your wife and other family members from your infection?
Im 19 and currently a sophomore in college. I was diagnosed with genital HSV-1 about a week ago after going to the doctor for what I thought was a really bad yeast infection. Turns out it was the beginning of my first OB! Im almost positive I contracted HSV from a cold sore on the mouth of a guy Ive been seeing for a few months after he gave me oral. Its been 8 days since it started and today is the first day that I have been able to walk around and go to the bathroom without excruciating pain. Needless to say, I will never take the ability to sit, walk, and pretty much just exist in comfort for granted again.
Now that I am able to focus on something other than the pain of the first OB, I am beginning to research the ways my diet and lifestyle need to change in order to prevent more OBs in the future. There is so much information I just dont really even know where the best place to start is. In addition, I am a college student and as a result experience a high amount of stress pretty frequently and I am definitely no stranger to alcohol, late nights, and not enough sleep. I am very aware that these are all things that do not mix well with HSV. Hoping someone with have some insight into how to balance HSV with the lifestyle of a broke, stressed out college student that wants to avoid the pain of another OB AT ALL COSTS.
